Just what the doctor ordered....

I am on the last two days of a twelve day "staycation" and man oh man have I needed this.

I have been **almost* unplugged for most of this time and it has done me a world of good.  Oh sure, I've checked in to Facebook a few times and have checked my email, but for the most part, I have been away from the computer.

Last Thursday, we headed up to the Delawana Inn with my Mum, my nieces and Hubster and the boys.  This place is so freaking awesome.  I could go on for days about how many things there are to see and do there, but I will save you the time.  Just head over to delawanainn.com and you'll see and read all that we had at our fingertips.  The absolute best part was being able to spend some really good quality time with Courtney, Rebekah and Danielle.  I don't get to see them often enough, but the four days that we spent together were absolutely precious.  They are such lovely, lovely girls and my sister would be so stinking proud of the young ladies they are becoming.  Don't even get me started on their beauty...stunners is an understatement!

On Sunday, we headed home and I plowed through many, MANY loads of laundry.  Monday was uniform day and Boy Oneder and I spent an hour at the school uniform store waiting our turn to get his school clothes.  $269.00 later and we had 3 golf shirts, 2 pairs of pants and a sweater.

Tuesday was underwear and socks day.  I headed over to Walmart with Middleman and we got them all new socks and undies.  I picked up a new bed for Rosie (and one for Dudley too) and new bowls for both of them as well.  I also got a few groceries and a few outfits for Threepeat.  The grand total was $344.00.  (gulp!)  Middleman couldn't fit into the boys' size 16 jeans but was swimming in the mens' size 30, so we didn't get any back to school clothes for him.

Wednesday was clean the house day.  I got the first floor shining and then lost all my steam.  I laid down and read quite a few pages of "Fifty Shades Freed".  I was still forcing my way through it though.

Thursday was "Get Middleman Jeans Day" so we headed over to Vaughan Mills to get some.  Four stores later, we ended up at American Eagle and he got three pairs of 29/32 jeans...all to the tune of $180.00.  (gulp!)

Boy Oneder came with us and bought himself a new paintball gun in preparation for the next day which was "Drive to Barrie for Paintballing Day".  Boy Oneder brought his beautiful girlfriend of four months and Middleman came along.  I considered keeping Threepeat out of camp for the day, but because Flagraiders (near Bingemans) was closed, there would have been nothing for him to do, so I left him in camp.  He went on a trip to Cedar Ridge Park anyway and had a blast with his friends.

The older boys had an AWESOME time at Barrie Paintball and can't wait to go again.  Boy Oneder's girlfriend held her own and had alot of fun too.

Yesterday, we ate dinner at Mum's and I fell asleep on her couch at 8:00.  I was sooo freaking tired.  We got home at 9:30 and I went straight to bed.  What a difference THAT made.  I feel like a million bucks today!

Tonight, we are having homemade spaghetti bolognese and then our neighbs, who have been away in the States for a few days, are heading over for some Mojitios, Dawn style.  Oh yeah baby...it will be a great night!

Tomorrow is clean the upstairs day and prepare for our big back to school day on Tuesday.

I really need to take extended staycations more often.  I am a new woman because of this!

Dudley arrives in 13 days and we simply can't WAIT to have him all to ourselves!  He is still less than a pound in weight and he is seven weeks old tomorrow.  What a little dolly!!!! Pin It
