Monday Mumbers

I saw this over at Good Enough Mama. It's called "Monday Mumbers" - it's a post of numbers. I was going to write a weekend recap post, but when I saw this, I thought it would be fun to recap in the form of numbers.

2 the number of hours spent driving into work, and then back home again before I even walked into the building, because I had to pick up a sick Seesa from school

3 the number of meetings I called in to from home, while simultaneously distracting sick daughter so I could listen to the call

4 number of text message exchanged with husband as we attempt to decide whether or not to cancel weekend trip to visit the Grandparents

3 number of different medications we gave Seesa to help her feel better for the trip

5 number of hours spent driving to visit Grammie and Grampie's house

72 number of gorgeous degrees it was outside at the Grandfolk's house this weekend

5 number of pounds I probably gained eating Grammie's yummy cooking

0 number of times I worried about anything on our relaxing weekend trip

7 number of hours total (no kidding) that my girls spent swimming in Grammie and Grampie's "pool" (hot tub)

6.5 number of brutal hours spent driving back home in Sunday afternoon traffic with

2 number of exhausted girls from a weekend of fun with the Grandfolks

Totally worth it

Wow that looks like fun. Aren't you so glad you didn't bag it when you learned Seesa was under the weather? It's just what the doctor ordered! Sometimes ya just gotta GO!

What a fun post and so glad you had such a nice relaxing weekend. That pool/hottub does look mighty inviting - especially in 72 degree weather. Oh, to live in California!

Swimming??!!! Must be nice! It's freezing here. Could you send a little bit of that heat this way please? :)

Thanks for playing Monday Mumbers! I hope you enjoyed it.

That sounds like heaven... I mean - the vacation - not the sick child.

So glad you went anyway - the kids look like they had a blast!

And some of Grammie's home cookin' is always the cure for what ails ya.

it sounds like you have great in-laws! you always mention such good times in your blog.

This kind of reminds me of those mastercard commercials where at the end the narrator concludes that whatever it was is priceless. By the way I'm not only jealous of that pool but green with envy that you have such beautiful weather. We got another round of snow yesterday! Canada's reputation continues to precede it.
