Yesterday I headed out for Orlando after work with a tank full of gas and money for tolls, and I set my GPS to my daughter’s address. She had mentioned recently that I hadn’t seen her apartment yet and asked when I might visit.
Then I got myself invited to a workshop in Orlando that I wanted to attend. Perfect! I had dinner with child #3 and her roommate, I blogged while the daughter wrote a paper for class, and called it a night. Very nice way to spend an evening.
Tomorrow my brother and sister-in-law will be visiting for one quick night, and I can’t wait to see them! My sister-in-law had the amazing thoughtfulness to have family in the same two places my dad and I live, so they always visit us when in Florida! They have a three-day weekend, so it will be fast and furious, but I’ll take it!
Tonight, after driving two hours to get home from Orlando, I still have to steam clean carpets, finish the laundry, clean the bathrooms, and mop the floors.
So of course, I’m sitting here writing this post instead. Can you say avoidance? I gotta go!
