Wow. I've hardly had more than three minutes to sit down since we got here in Lethbridge. But, here I am. I must say that the drive down here was really REALLY long. Much longer than I was anticipating it to be. It was over thirteen hour from the moment we left our front door to the moment we tumbled into my parents front door. As far as i've heard Dustin had a really great time at Breakforth. I've hardly had time to miss him until I crawl into bed at night.
I love coming home. It's such a repreive for me. My mom and dad have such a ball with the kids that I actually am able to sit and relax. Let me repeat that. I'm can actually SIT AND RELAX! i don't even ask them to chase after the kids. THEY DO IT WILLINGLY.
I've already gone shoppping and visited some great friends and i didn't even miss my favourite shows last night. Today I took the kids out to visit my cousins and we had a great time. It's so wierd to see them all grown up. I used to babysit these kids when they were as small as my kids. Time truly does fly by.
So, here I sit at my sister's laptop while she's at school and my parents are at work. Megan is sleeping and Ben's watching Sesame street. I can take a breather. I miss Summerland though and all my dear friends. I almost feel like heart is torn when I come back to Lethbridge. Part of me never wants to leave and to be able to live near my parents and have them more involved in our lives and part of me is so thankful to have made such amazing friends in Summerland. So much I so that I hope we never leave. Maybe I can yet convince my parents to move to Summerland. Why wouldn't you want to live in Summerland?
So, it's been great so far and the rest of my week is booking up just as fast as my weekend.Dress fittings, visitations, hair appointments, more shopping, movie nights...etc etc. I know! Such a rough life I lead. Hopefully I'll survive the madness.
I must say, it's been so nice to be here with becky. She's just so great with the kids. They just love her! She will make a wonderful mommy some day.
And Dustin, I'll have you know that Becky and I have been sharing a bed all weekend and she tells me I DO NOT hog the bed. So it really is true that the only reason it seems I hog the bed is because you steal all the blankets. SO there, argument over. I've concrete proof.

Pictures to come soon.

Yay for updates! I am glad you're having such a great time, Christy. When you say that you didn't even miss your favourite shows last night, does that mean you didn't watch them but didn't even notice their absence because you were so busy, or that by not missing them you mean you were still able to watch them? Because seriously, I cried during this week's Grey's Anatomy. Dr. McDreamy gets me every time. Wish you could have been there. We made the trek out to Faulder to watch our shows at Ang's place and we almost fell off a cliff on the way home. No worries. :) I MISS YOU! You had better be coming home before the weekend. Or else.

We miss you loads Christy, you weren't here for our momentous news. Plus as Amanda says we nearly drove off a cliff on Sunday because you weren't there to watch Grey's Anatomy with us. Come back soon (but hope you're having a good time with your family)

Glad you are having a good time Christy- but as the girls said, we look forward to having you back. Sunday nights aren't the same without you. :)

It sounds like you are having a good time with your family. Enjoy the week. Isn't it nice when you don't have to worry about the kids for just a little while!!!!!
Good for you.
