Just the two of us

This past weekend, Mr. FG and I took a weekend trip to Chincoteague Island, a spot I’d never been to before.

This is the Chincoteague library.   Why can’t all libraries look like this??

Our kids all stayed with friends, so it was just the two of us.   And it was great.

Anyway…that’s why it was quiet here yesterday! I’m playing catch-up after a weekend away.

And tomorrow, Lisey is getting her tonsils out, so the rest of this week is going to be a little odd too.

So.

I may get some blog posts up this week, but if it’s unusually quiet around here, you’ll know why.

How funny! Mr. Picky Pincher and I also treated ourselves to a weekend away. :) We rented a cottage out in the hill country. We got to visit farmer's markets, roadside produce stands, cook on a grill (a treat for apartment dwellers!), and chill out in a hot tub. It's always great to get away. Hope you had a lovely time!

We did! It was great (if too short.)

So glad you guys had a fun weekend too.

How lovely that you two had a weekend getaway! We are hot and heavy in baby land. We have three--5, 2, and 6 months--and we hope to have one more. So I'm hoping in about four years everyone will be weaned and potty trained. We only travel as a family right now. But I have told my mama to block a weekend in 2020 because my husband and I are taking a long weekend. I'm going to lay on the beach until I get bored, sleep whenever I want, and have leisurely meals and conversations with my equally exhausted husband.

I wanted to go there since I read Misty as a child!!! Beautiful pictures.

I wish Lisey a speedy recovery.

Poor Lisey!

Make her gummies in her favorite flavor from plain powdered gelatin. They are easy to eat and swallow, and the gelatin will be very soothing and healing to her throat. If she can have warm liquids you can add gelatin powder or collagen powder to her drinks, as well (collagen will work with cold liquids, too, without thickening).

I remember eating a lot of ice cream when I had my tonsils out about a century ago (or so it seems) but I'm not sure they allow that anymore.

Chincoteague is on my list also. I have hesitated though for one reason. I have heard that the bugs are really bad. Do you have that problem? Or is there a bug season when things are bad and other times of the year are good?

Good luck to Lisey. Her age and the advice for round the clock liquids and pain killers will help her recovery, I'm sure.

Many years ago my family camped on Chincoteague in the heat of the summer with millions of mosquitos. Evenings were horrible but we loved it anyway. May would have been perfect.

Well, since it's just mid-May right now, we did not experience any bug problems. Mosquitoes are generally a problem from June-September, so I think if you avoided those times, you'd be fine.
