Memorial Day Weekend

The older I get, the lazier I get.

I always look ahead, towards a holiday weekend with such grand plans. We're gonna go CAMPING! We are going to rent a CABIN! We'll cook out every night ON an actual fire- who needs a grill! We'll play frisbee on the lake with Blanca and go for walks around the lake every night ... and when we're not cooking, we'll find all the local mom and pop places to eat ...

We actually DID do this Labor Day weekend when we were dating between Houston and Dallas. We rented a cabin and took Blanca and went all around Gun Barrel City and had the best time. It seemed like such an adventure and for the first time, we weren't meeting up in one of the cities we lived in.

Now, two years later, we're old. Or we're lazy or something. We had many options for Memorial Day weekend and I was fully on board for a camping trip with friends, but Conrad says he just wants to stay home. All my grand plans don't sound so grand now ... and I am a-ok, all of the sudden with staying home. We even tossed around going home to Dallas, but his brother in law will just be getting home from a 12 day work trip and we know WE wouldn't be up for company after that. Of course, we have many other places to stay in Dallas, but with the kiddos and all, we normally stay there and try to hang out with them. It's a central gathering point. SO ... it looks like Houston it is.

I DID tell him if we do stay home, we are at LEAST leaving the house and going out ... like to Galveston for the day. Or Kemah- the boardwalk at Kemah is very nice ... or we can go to Lake Conroe and have lunch or something, but we are leaving the dadgum house AND the city we live in. I am far to young to feel this old. Or act this old ...

This is what working an 8-5 and driving 2.5 hours a day round trip will do to ya. I'm trying to get up the energy to start Turbo Jam again. They say if you do something for 3 weeks consistently, it will become a pattern and you will stick to it. So I just need 21 days of juice to either walk, Turbo Jam or go to our little neighborhood gym.

Ya'll pray for me!
