Okay... this weekend was indeed a bit insane. I'm feeling it today after actually getting a full nights rest. It's funny how a person can run on pure fumes and adrenaline for days at a time, but once you let down your guard, you feel the actual effects of exhaustion.
Matt was in tech all weekend (and will continue to be in tech for two more weeks), so essentially... I was on my own. I made efforts to keep it busy and light. I probably would've burned out had it not been for my dear friends, Josie and Eddie. They both provided some support on Saturday afternoon and it couldn't have come at a better time Thanks guys!
So yes... I'm exhausted. But wouldn't have done anything differently (maybe kicked a few kids out of my bed) and I'm happy to say, I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Seeing Jeremy and Emily come home with a twinkle in their eye made it all worthwhile. All of us with kiddos know what traveling with kids and without kids is like and I think it's safe to say, traveling without kids is divine!
And oh! how the kids missed their parents! It was precious to see the excitement in their little bodies as we drove to the airport to meet the folks. They couldn't contain themselves... singing songs about how beautiful their Mom is and how funny their Daddy is (Alidia's song about her Mommy's beauty turned into a song about her own beauty: "My Mommy is so pretty... I am so pretty, I am so pretty!"). Distance makes the heart fonder, for sure.
I have lots to catch up on in my own home... so I'll post more details later... and with a couple photos, of course.
