    So hard to wait

    Why are Megan and Mac so sad?

    sad mom and sad son

    It can't be because Megan must wait forever before seeing her Mom and Dad.

    And it can't be because Mac won't get to hug Gramma and PawDad for eons.

    No, it's not that at all, for Megan and Mac need not wait long for either of those things.

    In fact, they have to wait just one month.


    Because PawDad and I have tickets to visit Megan and Mac — and Bubby and Preston, too — in just one month!

    boys imitating dino

    Yes, it's true!

    No need for shocked faces. No need for sad faces.

    Just happy faces.

    Like these...

    boys with backward caps

    Faces PawDad and I will get to see in person.

    In just one month.

    Oh, it is so hard to wait.

    (So what were Megan and Mac really so sad about? A 45-minute wait in line to see mechanical dinos. Dinos with big mouths and big teeth, as Bubby and Mac demonstrate in the big-mouthed boys photo above.)

    Today's question:

    What are you finding it hard to wait for?

    Hope your wait goes month...woohoo!

    This is an easy question for me today. I'm waiting for spring. Unfortunately, it just can't get here fast enough...darn calendar.

    I am waiting for yoga class to start and then I will do the little bit of shopping I need to do. Cleaning the kitchen after that. A quiet day, but I am feeling calm and even peaceful with it.
    You are lucky to have something big to look forward to at this time of year. Those boys are such cuties.

    I can't wait for the baby brother or sister of those cute boys to make a grand entrance into the world! June seems a long way off.

    So happy for you and Jim to have that up-coming trip to see your special loves, hooray!

    How exciting!! And I know that Paw Dad doesn't always get to make these trips with you so this one will certainly be over the top! I am so excited for you! The only thing I am waiting for at the moment is one of Amara's Christmas gifts that was on back order.

    After a wonderful but busy holiday season, I'm looking forward to having nothing on the immediate horizon. Looking forward to chilling! And the weather is making that easy.

    Oh, how exciting for you! Right now I'm just waiting for the energy to tackle some of the projects I need to get done. :-)

    Sunshine. Being from Colorado - it's an adjustment and a half to get used to all the rain and grey skies here. So sunshine, definitely sunshine.
