Tomorrow I start back to work. I'm soooo sad to see the summer come to an end, however having the kids up at their grandparents makes it a little easier. I don't feel quite as bad since I won't have to literally leave them in the morning. I try not to think too much about our lazy mornings, blank slate days, and just fun we had together. I know I'll get into the swing of things again, especially once they go back to school, but it will still be hard to wake up in the morning...
Yesterday Chris and I headed out to the desert. We had lunch at The Cheesecake Factory and then hit up Sam's Club to restock our empty fridge/freezer.
This morning my dad and I did a short, but grueling hike. It was through an area behind their house that was recently burned in a fire. While it wasn't the most beautiful (charred trees everywhere), it was cool to see the new spurts of green already starting to pop through.
It's easier to have the kids gone when I know how much fun they are having..like in the form of Kendall licking her plate clean at John's Incredible Pizza today. :)
We have plowed through lots of episodes of The Office this weekend. I think that now ranks as the funniest series I've ever seen.
