Today is David’s birthday – “Happy Birthday, Dave!”
* * * *
I can’t believe it’s been over two weeks since I’ve posted. It just goes to show you that without structure, I am wandering aimlessly. (Do I need to do Project 365 to actually keep a blog??)
Two days after my last post – it was my birthday and the present I gave myself was a trip to Texas to see Kale and Kayla. I went ALONE. I flew alone. Did you hear that? And I did it without nerve medicine. Haha!
Before I left, I knew I needed some Maddie time, so I picked her up from daycare (there’s nothing better than hearing her scream “Mémère” when she sees me come in the door!) and off we went to Wal-mart.
When you live in the sticks, travel isn’t all that “convenient”. It takes three hours to get to the airport. The flight from Little Rock to Houston is only an hour or so… unless you get a plane with THESE…
…then, it takes about two hours. Ha!
Kale picked me up from the airport and shortly after we got home, Kayla got off work. I miss them SO much, they are always a sight for sore eyes! We went to eat at a really neat little "family" cafe (Eden Cafe) and I got chicken pot pie. I haven’t had that in forever and it was so good! (I crunched up my crust before getting a picture. Ha!)
After supper, the “kids” gave me my birthday gift – an iPad2!!
It was a hard gift to accept, but I pretty much ran with it after I got over being overwhelmed!
All in all, it was one of the best birthdays ever! (That’s saying a lot when you get to be my age.)
I’ll post more about my trip tomorrow. Until then,

Look what Mémère got for you!
