Well, life is more back to normal this week....
Iggie went to camp for two weeks and when I was talking to a friend I said to her, " It's been... how many years since I've had 2 weeks without kids? ............. Never!"
My oldest daughter is 42 and Iggie is 15.
Last year when she went to camp for a week I'd gone out to Liberty Hill and wasn't alone then.
This time I went to Liberty Hill for 5 days and came home. For the next 9 days it was just me and the cat. And.... she didn't like it!
It's been really surprising to me how much differnce even one, easy going child can be compared to none.
Anyway, she's back and has been resting up from the work routine she followed with all the other interns.
She met lots of new friend, so knowing her, she was spending plenty of time visiting when she could have been resting but I know that they keep the interns busy with pretty much constant chores. She did a lot of kitchen duty this time.
So, she was thinking home cooked food and being lazy.
Last night I made a speial meal for her and then we watched our FAVORITE movie.... Ever After.
We get excited. We both almost know every word of it, knowing what's about to happen and we cry thru several of the scenes. At one pint she said "This is the best scene and the saddest, all in one."
There's a point where someone throws a punch and we both whoop about it!
If you haven's seen it.... Go rent it. She and I began watching it when she was 4 and we enjoy it more each time. She says.... "That's the TRUE story of Cinderella! That's how it really happened!"
I hope so!!!
