We're about to head out the door for an impromptu weekend getaway to the mountains. I decided last weekend that the boys and I needed a weekend of fun and frolic before the holiday crazies start. So, I booked a real, authentic 125 year old cabin in the mountains for this weekend. (It's a real cabin, but the owners made sure to retrofit it with electricity, running water, even central heat & air some years ago. It even has a full kitchen now.) I may be completely out of my mind, but the difficult children and I will be spending the next 5 hours on the road, then the next 3 days and 2 nights exploring the Smoky Mountains - Cherokee, The Blueridge Parkway, etc. I'm excited! I think it's the perfect reward for all the work I've been doing lately & the difficult children beautiful behavior since shortly before Thanksgiving. Keep your fingers crossed that we all weather the trip with no gfgness, no attitudes, and no new gray hairs. See you guys when we get home!
