Extra Hands

soon to be available free download via  -and I must say I love this quote!

After returning from our trip to Las Vegas, the husband was on a plane the next day for a week-long business trip.  I've gotten the hang of these trips by now, and although they're not my favorite, I can usually survive ok.  But this time I called my best friend a few weeks ago to invite her to come hang out and be my back-up, and because she's the best she agreed.

I've been off playing the past few days with her and having much more fun than would have happened if I'd truly been on my own with the kids.  We shopped and picnicked and cooked and swam and lunched and stayed up way too late every night chatting.  It was summer perfection, and now my kids are wondering what we're going to do without Amy around.  I agree- we live much too far from each other for my liking, but I don't think either of us is looking to relocate any time soon.  In the mean time we'll just need to enjoy the quick trips back and forth.

Today will be spent catching up with my friends close by and catching up on the life tasks I've been neglecting for the past week and a half.  And can I admit that I'm feeling a little blue that it's already the last day of June?  This month always goes by way too fast- a preview of how I'm sure to feel at the end of summer.  Hope you're enjoying these fleeting summer days!
