For a semi-hermit, I've been out and about a lot.
I like to be at home. Don't get me wrong, I love people and like to get out and do fun things, but having a farm means that hours spent away from the property means that I get behind, I spend more money because I don't have time to cook, etc. The last month has been go, go, go! A couple weeks ago, I went out of town with my mom and little sister on a Friday morning and got back late Sunday afternoon. We went to a couple casinos (my mom's treat), spent some time with my older sister and took her out to lunch. Then, last weekend, I went out of town Friday after work with Kaitlyn (my oldest) and Lyndsey (the youngest) and we drove to Portland (6 hours one way) for Kaitlyn's baby shower. We got there Friday at 11:30 pm and got back Sunday night at 9:30 pm. Then, two days later, (yesterday) Lyndsey and I drove back to Portland (another 6 hours) to go to a Aaron Carter concert (Lyndsey's pre-teen crush). I didn't want her driving that far alone, and she wanted me to go with her. Now, when a 17 year old senior in high school invites momma to go to concert with her, trust me, no matter how much my inside was kicking and screaming, momma went. And actually, I had a ball. Watching Lyndsey yell and dance and have the singer toss her a rose was so fun. But, we had to drive back today so I could work tomorrow. We got back at 4:30 pm. I work tomorrow and then start getting ready for the garage sale I am having Saturday. Saturday night, I'll be baking for the Project Graduation bake sale on Sunday morning. Sunday afternoon I am having a baby shower for Kaitlyn for friends and family from here. I think I hit my quota for the next year... Luckily next week is only 3 days of work and then the Thanksgiving holiday and 4 days off. Maybe I can finish up my winter prep and then relax a bit.
