So I took them lunchbag school, took them to the dentist and back to school (they're staying at the house of the lady who does the after school care). Then we packed and are on our way now, way later than we wanted, but all is good. I'm thankful we're going to have these two nights away!
As my therapist said yesterday (and my younger son's teacher today), we've earned it! 20 years is no small feat! ;-) and I'm happy for that!
