Our mini vacation

Well, Grandma's visit came to an end this week, as she boarded a plane back to Arizona. It was a wonderful visit and we enjoyed every minute of it. Anytime we have a family member visit, I always feel a bit down for a day or two after, not because the visit was not good, but the sadness of seeing them go, knowing it will be months before we see them again. Oh how nice it would be to be within a few hours drive of family! Unfortunately, that is not the case, so we deal the best we can with the distance between us. We jumped right back into school after a week off, and we were all feeling a bit lazy about doing work, I think! Time off having fun can do that to you! I'm sure we'll pick up the pace again this next week. The big girls and I had a "girls day out" today, courtesy of my sister. She sent all 4 of us tickets to Cirque Dreams at the theater downtown for our Christmas present. It's by the same company that does Cirque de Soleil (did I spell that right?), but it's a little different. There were lots of lights and acrobatics-pretty neat. The girls just loved it and were tickled pink to be sitting in a real theater. I think we need to have more days out with the girls in the future! We finished off our day with a nice walk, enjoying the beautiful weather here and letting everyone get some exercise. Wow, between the weekend and Grandma's visit, I feel like I've been on a mini vacation. I think a little R&R did us all a lot of good!
