Saying Goodbye to Summer and Welcome Back to my Girls

There is a song stating that Christmas is the “most wonderful time of the year.”  No disrespect to Andy Williams, but I disagree.  For me, the most wonderful time of the year is when the girls return home after summer vacation with their mother.  From Gabriella having her birthday to prepping for their return (the house and car are spotless right now), or to just me smiling and getting that spark of life back again, this is the best part of the year for me.

Someone looks ready to travel…

Summer went by quickly this year, but never quick enough.  As always, it is difficult to keep my mind off how much I missed my girls.  I tried to occupy my time for the past ten weeks with…

I am the weird looking ships on the right

… Star Wars Armada games,…

The answer is “Yes, this is a classic that everyone should watch.”

… re-watching classic 80s movies,…

Neiman Marcus $250 Cookies!!!

… sending packages of baked goods to the girls,…

Contrary to popular belief, you still have to run during “virtual races.”

… participating in running events,…

Unpopular Opinion: Peace Talks was amazing!

… reading a few books,…

Looking on the bright side of COVID, I could get used to socially-distanced Changes of Command…

… putting in maximum effort in my new position at work,…

Statistically, they have been asleep for 60% of the summer.

… and entertaining the gatos.  It has been a busy summer that surprisingly flew by.  But even with calling the girls every few days and trying to keep my mind occupied, I miss them like crazy and it is time for them to come home.  Life just is not the same without them here.  What do you say girls?  Are you ready to come home?


Thanks for checking in on us (after a long hiatus).
