Women's Day

Y’all Wonderwomen


Last night I returned home to find a gift from my mom, and my boy wandering out of bed past bedtime.  Also his father whom I immediately locked onto for guidance I needed about a challenging situation I was facing, without letting my sun interrupt.

Then I found this:

“I understand that you are currently having problems in your life and I am going to let you express those things to your husband but please don’t open this gift without me.  love, gavin”

Wow, right?

We open it, and lo:

Mom, thank you!!!!


Today I awake to just another morning with unicorns strewn in my bed:

Saying goodbye to them for a couple of days at the morning bus stop, they even let me take their picture together.  It happened to be “Dress to Impress” Day for Spirit Week:

(Yesterday was

Crazy Hair Day):





And tomorrow is “Throwback Thursday” – dressing from the past.  Gavin said he wants to dress as himself from “one minute in the past.”  (I had suggested “yesterday.”)


Tomorrow for me begins days of wall-to-wall classes, but tonight it’s all HOTEL ROOM BY MYSELF.

Then FRIDAY is PAJAMA DAY after which my three drive down to join me!

So QUICK, I better stop doing my favorite thing (blogging about my family) so I can do my favorite thing (blog about my family and other stuff).

    Wow, how old is Gavin? 32? What a spectacular note.
    So glad you have “a room of one’s own” for a couple of days. You’re right, it’s practically unbelievable!
    When they ARE 32, you’re going to miss waking up to unicorns in your bed. Maybe there will be little grand-replicas of them if you’re lucky.
