Le vendredi est une bonne!

Roselady over at Diapeepees started Good Fridays...
a day to reflect on the 'good' of the week, no D allowed!  
Le vendredi est une bonne...Friday is good!  
(French this week!)

1.  The DOC!!  OK, I know I'm pushing it here with the 'no D allowed' but I had to take the first chance I had to express my deepest thanks and appreciation for all of the support from my friends in my computer about the ridiculous anonymous comment!  I knew that you all would have my back (and Ubergeek's!), but to see all the comments and feel that support was truly amazing.  You all are becoming (if not already are!) some of my best friends and I feel unbelievably blessed to be a part of such an amazing community of D'rents and PWD!  Much, much, much love to all of  you!

2.  Time to refresh.  I am about halfway through my little vaca in Georgia.  And although it is hotter than a witch's titty in a brass bra, I am truly enjoying being here.  Having a break from the D stuff is nice, although I have been talking about it quite a bit because everyone wants to know how Bean is doing and it's given me the chance to educate and correct, which is a good thing.  But, having a break from 'all that is mommy' has been amazing.  No other clothes to iron, no other food to make, no planning outings around nap time, no stressing over behavior, no making sure they are occupied so I can be on the computer or take a shower (notice the order of importance there?!?), no car seats to buckle, no whining about wanting to go do this or that, no waking up to the pitter patter of feet before I want to be awake!!  It's been grand!
  Do I miss them, YES!  Am I ready to go home yet, um....NO!! ;)

3.  Family.  I am so glad I was able to be here for my nephew's graduation.  It's one of those milestones that you just can't miss!  It's been nice hanging out with my mother, sister and her family.  Just being around family is a wonderful thing...especially when you live 4,000 miles away and it doesn't happen all that often!
  Now, brace are about to see pictures of me!  OK, stop jumping up and down in delight already!! ;)

My sister, Lisa; nephew, Paul; and me!

Brother-in-law, Doug; nephew, Chad; nephew, Paul; sister, Lisa; Mother, Beverly; and me!

  2. Glad the DOC lifted your spirits. Don't let one annoying anon person get you down. You are loved!

    This line made me laugh: "I can be on the computer or take a shower (notice the order of importance there?!?)" Computer time definitely takes priority over shower time! :)
