Spin Cycle: Home and Heart


Well, I certainly found a hidden perk to having a second job.

Road trips.

I had not hit my home turf sans family, in..... like....

EVER.

It was one of those events where everything fell into place, everything went smoothly, good times were had by all.

Since this was my first time to travel the roads of the girl I used to be on my own since I married and had children, I will count this as my Spin on Firsts.

Since I traveled, worked my business, and visited with friends and family my entire week of break, I am playing catch up on lesson planning. I hope to capture in words the feelings the trip brought up, but for now, I will link you to a post on the beach where I grew up, the beach where I had a lovely reunion with my mom and younger sister last week.

For more Spins, head on over to Sprite's Keeper.

I read the red wagon entries... My mom, when brother Jack and I would say how bored we were, used to kiss us each on the nose and perkily say, "Oh, I'm so sorry for you. I'm not bored at all." And she'd walk away from us, leaving us not knowing how to react other than to find something to do.

My brother's red wagon was the picnic wagon. When Mom had had enough of housework, the hardboiled eggs would appear--deviled eggs--and we KNEW what was coming next.

Hmmm... I think indeed we do have some intertwining parts to our histories.

Forgive me. I keep falling in love with your daughter's beach barrettes.

Can't wait for your entries about your trip. (and of course, thank you for your comments, as well.)

Did I read the words "wonderful reunion" in the same sentence as "mom"? That is a huge relief compared to last year. I'm so glad you had a good trip, and things are going better.
