After the week I had it was so nice to get away for a few days. My son went on a camping trip with church so my daughter and I took a road trip with my mom. One of my mom’s friends was celebrating her 80th birthday and her family threw a huge party for her in League City near Houston. The three of us drove down towards Houston Friday night and ended up stopping in Conroe because we were so tired. We got up Saturday and got dressed and continued on to League City. We had such a good time at the party with all of her wonderful family. After the party we headed to Cypress to go and visit some other old friends we hadn’t seen in a really long time. We stayed with them last night and went out to dinner. We stayed up pretty late visiting and then we had to get up this morning and head back home. It’s pretty cool actually because I didn’t spend hardly anytime thinking about my former student’s death or the situation with my ex. I spent the weekend focusing on family and friends. I got to spend a lot of time with my daughter which was great. We spent a lot of time together where we were actually unplugged. I forgot how fun road trips can be when they are spent with people you love. Next Saturday we leave on yet another road trip. We are going to New Mexico right before Thanksgiving. It will be good to spend some more time with family. This trip will include my son too which will make it even better.
