Dear Hubby and I are blessed with 4 wonderful kids (and a son-in-law). Oh, they try our nerves from time to time and we often wonder if we have done everything we possibly could. Well, this past weekend, all our fears were put to rest.
We wanted to get away again since it was a 3 day weekend. Since Black Monday (the day I was laid off) happened, we figured it would probably be best NOT to spend the money. DSK (Dear Sweet Kids) got together and gave us a large gift basket (sorry, no picture....Dear Hubby attacked the chocolate right away and put the champagne in the fridge) filled with champagne, chocolates, cheeses, crackers, sausages, etc. along with this gift certificate.
First thing Saturday morning, the Wild One and the Computer Geek (both of whom are still living at home) took "the boys" and drove to the Married One's house in Charlotte. Later that afternoon, the Wild One put another gift basket on the front porch filled with Panera Breads and breakfast rolls. Dear Hubby and I had a wonderful weekend alone without kids, without dogs and without having to wake up first thing in the morning!
So pay attention, kids ........ Parents, feel free to share this post with whomever you feel appropriate.
