I arrived home around 5:00 p.m. today. I know I’m fortunate to get a bit of time to myself here and there, even though I worked long days this week once the conference began on Wednesday. The hotel, spa, and workout facilities definitely provided a nice distraction, but I’m so happy to be home and to see my kids. A full week without them so soon after they’ve returned from camp is too long!
Adventure Guy joined a team from church again to participate in a weekend Barbecue cook off. I decided to take the kids out to see him tonight, and we enjoyed hanging out at the tent, eating the catfish, hush puppies, ribs, and chicken already coming out of the frier and off the grill. The main show is tomorrow when the brisket that’s currently smoking will be available to the crowd. We may or may not go out tomorrow, depending on weather and my tolerance for dealing with a lot of people!
The lovely part is I don’t have to do anything tomorrow. That’s a rare occurence around here, and I’m going to take full advantage of it!
