Well, Zaccai and I are off to Philadelphia so I can work for the week. I have a wonderful mom who took time off work to stay with me so I could bring Mr. Z.
On our flight an older man was so kind and gave me a bag of M&MS. He said, “you might enjoy this.” Now, I normally do not give Z M&MS but I couldn’t turn down the kind gesture. Z slept most of the flight but when he woke up and saw those M&MS that’s all he wanted. Of course. He’s never even seen a bag but somehow he knew what it was. Well, one pellet after another he was a happy little boy. The things we say as parents that we would never do. Shaking my head at my old self.
Z owned his seat. Silly boy.
We’re now in New Jersey for the weekend; I’m staying with my best friend and her fiancée. I tacked on a weekend trip to stay with my bestie! Don’t you love best friends? We can look at each other and just know what the other is thinking. We share our love of people watching, eating, occasional exercise (even though we both know we need more exercise and less food) and our love of talking about inappropriate subjects. I have a few best friends and each one holds a special place in my heart. I wouldn’t be who I am without them.
The fun thing about this special girl is her name is Amber (just like mine), her dad’s name is Ernie (just like mine), we both lost weight on Weight Watchers and are lifetime members.
It’s been nice to reconnect and spend quality time with my boy. I miss my husband and can’t wait to see him. He’s been home working, cleaning and replacing the battery in my car. Don’t you just love husbands that fix things? Mine is a master of fixing. Sometimes it annoys me because he wants to “fix it” when “it” might not need any fixing… Just maybe some listening. But, in this case, I’m oh so grateful for the fixing.
It’s been a fun weekend but for some reason I love structure, work and reality. And, well, I’m ready to get back to it.
I hope you’ve enjoyed your week! I’ll be posting soon about my learning experiences as a mom and traveling! A few tips for you.
Kisses to all.
