My husband and I have decided to go to Saskatoon the night before my thyroid specialist appointment for two reasons... first of all it is a lot of driving to do in one day (5-6 hours round trip), especially with Olivia along. Second and more importantly we need a little time away together. Sure we will have Olivia with us but right now I could really use a tiny break from the boys. I am finding 3 kids, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week a little much. And honestly, Owen's clingyness may drive me batty. I love the kid. I really do. I think he is adorable. But my back is in spasms from his constantly wanting to be carried like a baby, held on my lap like a baby, etc. This morning when my husband was kissing me goodbye Owen was standing in between us with his hand on my face. He is never farther than a few inches from me at all times. I hear "Me want mommy" an awful lot. And as nice as it is to feel needed I could use a break every now and then. Besides, the boys love time with Grandma Patricia.
A couple years ago when my brother-in-law Phil married his wife Erica we stayed at a bed and breakfast in Saskatoon that we really enjoyed so we have decided to return there for one night. It is called Colony House. It was lovely and very reasonably priced.
I am really excited.
I am also really excited to wander the aisles of Wal Mart.
I'm sure many of you are wondering why this is so exciting but you just have to trust me, it is. When you live in the middle of nowhere with very few retail choices WalMart is like a huge candy store to a 5 year old.
