WELL, MY DAUGHTER CAME DOWN WED. WITH 2 GRANDKIDS AND LEFT WITH 1 ON THURSDAY. SHE RELUCTANTLY LEFT THE 6 YEAR OLD HERE, AND LET ME TELL YOU, MY WIFE AND I ARE POOPED.

 

BLUEBERRY PICKING, A STROLL THRU THE OUTSIDE MALL (A STOP AT THE TOY STORE), DAYS AT THE BEACH, DINNERS, BACK TO ANOTHER BEACH WITH A PLAYGROUND FOR BEN AND A CHANCE TO WATCH THE SUNSET, OFF TO DAIRY QUEEN, PLAYING INSIDE, TRYING TO KEEP UP WITH HIM, AND JUST HAVING FUN.

LAST NIGHT, I WAS ON THE COMPUTER AT 9:30 PM, AND HE CAME INTO THE ROOM TO ANNOUNCE HE WAS TIRED AND WOULD I LEAVE THE ROOM SO HE COULD GO TO SLEEP.

 

TODAY AT NOON WE RETURNED HIM TO HIS RIGHTFUL OWNERS. WE DID A LITTLE SHOPPING ON THE WAY HOME AND ARRIVED AT 4:00. BY 4:02, MY WIFE WAS SOUND ASLEEP AND I WASN'T FAR BEHIND.

 

HE WANTS TO COME BACK SOON, A GOOD SIGN HE WASN'T MISTREATED. OUR RECOVERY HOWEVER, MAY TAKE A WHILE. NO NAPS FOR 2 DAYS JUST ABOUT DID ME IN, BUT I KEPT UP.

 

WHAT A GREAT TWO AND ONE HALF DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Marty,

 

Busy kids sure make me tired just watching them tear up my house apart when they come here for an hour. You two deserve an award for grandparenting for two days!

Marty,

 

One interesting thing about kids today. They have scheduled lives. If there isn't something scheduled they have to fill up the time with some activity. Used to be kids were able to just chill. Play, no great plan. They now often don't seem to know how to have down time.

 

Too bad. Personally I have always liked downtime, with nothing special to do.
