I did not have any intention of going three weeks without blogging. I never do, but this is the second or third time it's happened.
A whole lot and a bunch of nothing has happened over the last three weeks, so I'll just give a run down and hopefully write a normal post in the next day or two:
-Celebrated four years of marriage with John (March 8th).
-Drove to Franklin to spend a couple of days with John's parents.
-Found out the first morning we were there that John's grandfather died (this was fairly expected), so we made plans to drive to Foley, Alabama the next day. We were able to grab dinner with our friends Michael and Amber that evening.
-Drove to Foley, Alabama Tuesday, the 13th. On the entire nine hour trip (Yes, nine hours for what would normally be a 6.5-7 hour trip. Welcome to traveling with a toddler), Hannah Grace cried less than two minutes. Praise God, but it is definitely work to keep her content.
-Spent roughly 48 hours in Foley, where we were fed tons of food, got to see John's sister Amy and his brother (and his wife) Stephen and Laura, spent an hour at Gulf Shores (Hannah Grace liked the sand but not that water, but it's still an improvement from last year where she hated both), rocked in rocking chairs, and swung on porch swings (Hannah Grace loved those last two things the most).
-Stopped in Montgomery on the way back to visit Stephen and Laura. Stephen grilled some chicken and corn for dinner, and Hannah Grace was able to play on a nearby playground.
-Arrived at my mom's house right before midnight on the 15th. Shopping, eating at Fulin's and Jason's Deli, and playing with my niece all took place over our two and a half day stay there.
--Drove home on the 18th.
-Cleaned all day yesterday so that I could go to Jo-Ann and sew some today. I made it to Jo-Ann, but I'm WAY too tired to do much of anything else. I have days of great productivity (like yesterday) and days like today. . . hoping to feel much more energized tomorrow because there is SO much that needs to be done over the next twelve weeks!
