(this tea towel is on zulily right now, along with other states. omg!)
well. we're not good at road trips i've learned. i'm not going to lie, if i have the chance to fly somewhere, i will. but the deal is, we're not millionaires.
with 3 kids and 2 adults, it's just so much more reasonable to pack up the car and go visit friends.
speaking of friends,
i'm still learning how to be a friend.
even though i've been best friends with emily for a long time, i'm still figuring it out.
(daddies praying with the babies)
so i think emily enjoys quality time as her love language. i believe that's a love language? as a hermit, i don't understand this. i love alone time as my love language/spiritual gift...people-less time. so you an imagine the mental effort it takes for me to talk myself into driving with the childrens. for many, many hours! to go be with people non-stop! Lord, have mercy.
i just exhausted myself there.
but we did. my husband loves this kind of stuff, so he supported the non-hermit behavior. and was surprised by it when i said, we need to go see the anderson's.
and let me say this. it has been fun. i have enjoyed myself.
even though we had to wait at CVS for 2 hours because my eye swelled up. i think from walking into 4 gas station bathrooms on the way here, one of which had throw up in the sink?
layne was like, why did someone put their salad in the sink?
elll ohhh elll. so gross.
we got here and our car battery died, caedmon fell at the pool and had to get a million stitches, oh and i got sick in the joanne's bathroom today.
but the world is not ending.
we're still having fun.
i think because i see how much emily loves having us here. emily said, it makes me so happy to have people in my home.
it will make me tired this week because i extroverted myself, but it gives emily life. to have all of us crazies here. to me that's worth it. and it makes me think we need to come up here more often.
best friends are worth it.
or something deep like that.
that should be on a poster.
is this a haiku?
anyway. thanks emily for being this hermit's friend. let us pray that some of our children get married to each other.
