Mountain Retreat

Friday, October 11, 2013

My friends have invited me and another friend to join them for a girls weekend at one of the friends "cabin". Last time I was there was just before Erik got out of the hospital three years ago. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, although her mountain retreat is more like a mansion or at least a lodge.
I'm leaving tomorrow morning early and will be home Monday afternoon to welcome Erik back from transitional therapy. In order that I could go my eldest son came and got Erik today so I would have plenty of time to pack and close up the house. He will bring his brother home Sunday, to shower and shave and then deliver him to their sisters. She will take Erik with her to her children's orthodontist appointment where Franklin, Erik's caregiver will pick him up. When I realized how busy Lisa was, I told her I'd just come back Sunday night, and she said NO MOM, you will come home rested Monday.
I do have to come home earlier than planned as we have an inspection of the drains the plumbers lined up. Next step, floor and patio!
So y'all have a great weekend. I'll be praying for all my friends here and thinking of you-but there is no internet, soooo after I log in tomorrow, you won't see me until Monday.
Gotta go pack

    Ginie, I think you must have an angel on your shoulder right now. This is so needed. Hope you have a fantastic time and come home well rested.

    Ginie, Enjoy your well-deserved vacation with the girls. It's so great to have women friends to hang out with. The place sounds fabulous. Bet you can get in some nice walks in the woods and get some of the other women to join you. I love to be out in nature. Glad your kids are helping each other out. You must be a great mother!!
