Well, so much for my grand idea that things would be back in full force last week–including all of our regular features like the Walgreens and CVS deals and Super Savings Saturday.
For those who didn't know, we took a long-anticipated and much-saved-for trip to San Antonio Thursday through Sunday to attend the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival.
I had every intention of blogging while I was gone since there was supposed to be free wi-fi at both our hotel and the convention center. But not only would the wi-fi not work for me, I had little time for blogging anyway. Meeting many of you, taking care of the girls, and listening to wonderful lectures and films filled up just about every waking moment of the first two days.
And then Kaitlynn came down with an awful stomach bug the last day and a half. I'll spare you the details, but I'm sure many of you other moms of young ones can imagine!
It didn't take long for me to just hope and pray we could make it home in one piece–and soon! I packed as many changes of clothes, wet wipes, and so forth as I could scrounge up and we left for the airport for our scheduled return flights home.
We made it through our first flight only to discover upon landing that our next flight was cancelled and we were stuck in the Dallas airport for five more hours–with two little children (one who was very sick) and a tired pregnant mama.
Needless to say, I was never so grateful to make it home. Kaitlynn is much improved today and other than mountains of thrown-up-on laundry that I have waiting for me, things are mostly back to normal.
So I also hope that I'll really and truly be back to regular blogging here starting today. Thanks for your patience with me this past week–and these last few weeks. I'm blessed to have readers who are willing to let me put the needs of my family before blogging. Thank you all.
