Yesterday I had seven hours on my own.  Kate was working and I dropped Jesse and the boys off for Braeden's cousin's birthday celebration at Jesse's brother's.  When Kate got off at 7pm, she drove over, visited a bit then brought everyone home.

I went shopping for a bit but it was pouring rain so it wasn't worth it to me to go in and out of stores very much.  A new burger joint opened next to Walmart and I decided to give it a try.  FABULOUS!  Frack Burger, a new local chain.  Fresh everything as well as artisanal buns and a special frack sauce.  They have not had their official opening yet, so things were still being smoothed out.  I brought more than half of my meal home ... and gave it to the dog!  Saved the fries for the boys today.

When I returned I took the dog for a walk, tidied up, did two loads of laundry while watching HGTV.  So peaceful.  So quiet.  Kinda TOO quiet.

I return to sunny Maui next week.  I'm pretty sure I'm going to be homesick for this amazing little family.  Stay tuned!  I think I want to be with them while they boys are little and still adore me.  By the time they are 11-12 ... they will roll their eyes and say "do I have to?"

What's a Gramma to do?


  1. What a hard dilemma you have, with your heart in two places. Too bad you can't get your family to all move to Maui and live their happily ever after.

  2. I think about the grands getting older, too. The baby will be four next month. No longer a baby. It breaks my heart. She is the last one.

  3. Yes--it happens. The Grands grow up and get busy with their schedules and then, they are off to college and before you have time to realize all of it, you only see them 2 or 3 times a year--if you are lucky.
