We flow in on Wednesday and by Thursday afternoon we had made our way to the lake house owned by one of Drew's brothers. We stayed there until late Monday morning. We had a great time being lazy, watching the kids swim, and just visiting with all the family and friends that came in.
The kids had a blast with all their cousins. This is what Drew and I miss the most with us living so away: the kids growing up with family close by. In fact right now William and Ben are still at the boy cousin's house and we have all the girls here at Nana and Papaw's house.
Yesterday I went shopping at Wal-Mart...by. my.self. It was WONDERFUL! I found several great "bargains". Packages of erasers for ten cents. Rubbermaid sandwiches containers - a set of four for only a dollar. Great size water bottles for fifty cents. It was delightful!
Today I went to the mall and also had a delightful time. I found several shirts for five dollars a piece. YEAH!
But what cracked me up was one ladies' question. In several stores I made the comment that I was really enjoying the shopping - the selection - that I just didn't have that where I lived. Most replied, "Where are you from?" or"Where do you live?" But my favorite - "Where you stay?"
Oh, yeah...I'm back in the South.
