My Weekend Getaway Flip Flop

Well,
I'm still home!
~Home Sweet Home~
Looking out the window
at the snow covered playhouse.
Even though I was supposed
to be in the UP.
Upper Peninsula for all you
Non-Midwesterners.

So...What Happened?
Hmmmm..
SOMEONE
who shall remain nameless to
protect his red-faced hide
FORGOT
he had to work.

WHAT?

Yeah..Yeah.
I switched with somebody.
And you forgot until I am up
at 5:30 am and packing to go?
Yeah..Sorry.
BIG SIGH
Yeah..ME TOO!
Call and cancel the hotel.
We always stay here....
Drink the Starbucks coffee
from the thermos.
Yes-Yes-I have a
PINK STARBUCKS THERMOS
Settle in on the sofa with
the computer,
my magazines,
my Bible
Shhhhhhh I am behind on my
read the Bible in a year
commitment to myself.

Hmmmmm...wait...
Do you have to work on
SUNDAY?
Nope!

How about we drive down to
Milwaukee...early church with the
kids and  buy them brunch?
Works for me...
Good! It works for me, too.
I get to see
BigBoyE and CharlesInCharge.
Not such a bad weekend
after all.
But let's not let
YOU KNOW WHO
that it's not so bad...
m'kay?
I want to milk this for all
it's worth.
AMEN!

Jettie said...

Isn't it fun to have something to hold over their head for a few days!

Tete said...

Well, let him wiggle a few days at least. Happy you are having breakfast with the boys. Rocking babies is better than UP any day.
Hope you got caught up laying around.

Patty Patterson said...

Maybe you can have a nice get away another time. Until then - enjoy those grand babies! And give them each an extra hug for me, too!

Susie said...

Diana, Don't you think you could still shame Hero into a weekend later? :) Bad girl !!LOL That hotel looks so nice.Hope you have a great day with the kids. I am working my way around most of my g.chrome hang-ups. :):) Smiles to you,Susie(She Junks)

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I want to say "Oh no!" but I have to laugh, too, Diana! I would probably be milking it, too.

WeeFaerie said...

LOL! You're milking it! I would too. Glad your weekend turned out ok in the end. Maybe you can hop back across the border soon.

Ruth Kelly said...

You playhouse looks like one of those tiny houses that people are buying and living in.

Debbie said...

Yup, brunch and babies sounds like fun to me!!
xxoo

LDH said...

Brunch with the kids does have to help with the change of plans!

Japolina said...

I'd milk it too. Glad the weekend was not a total loss. It was not meant to be.

Kaybe said...

lol...I've tried to read the Bible through for years now. What finally worked for me was reading the Psalms every morning. Whatever the date - I start with that Psalm. Today is the 22 so I read Psalm 22 - then I add 30 to it and read Psalm 52 and so on until I've read 5 Psalms. I also read what the day's date is in Proverbs. HS usually gives me a thought that sends me on a spiritual rabbit trail of sorts. Hay, it works for me. Have a peace-filled Sunday.

Donna said...

Yes, milk it for all it's worth, I say! Looks like you got our snow. How are the boys doing? Bet Charles' cheeks are growing by the minute! What little cuties! Maybe next weekend you can head to the UP:)

Love of the Sea said...

What a disappointment. Oh well...sounds like you recovered nicely from not being able to go. Hope all is well! XO Debbie

Ann@A Sentimental Life said...

Blondie's Journal said...

Well, you made the best of it and it was well worth it! This totally sounds like something my hubby would do!

XO,

Deborah said...

Awwwww so sorry...you handled it so well!
Hope you get to go soon though...
glad you still managed to enjoy your little getaway anyway!

Deborah :)

Sweet Tea said...

Work it.
Work it.
Work it.
You're got guilt momentum on your side. ;-)

Gina said...

Milk it for what it's worth, but I'm glad you were able to turn the whole thing around anyway.

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Your so funny Diana! Of course the UP is wonderful but so are those adorable grand-babies of yours!
Have a great week!
Cindy

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

oh yeah....quite a few ughs! and feet stomping and slapping the bed. It actually looks right cute though! Looks like you might have said a few "ughs" too. Glad the weekend turned out great Diana. :)

Debby said...

I'm not telling. I want to come stay in your playhouse.

Nellie said...

Yum! What a delicious-looking brunch! Those two little faces are definitely worth an early trip. Not a completely wasted week-end.:-)

Debbiedoo's blogging and blabbing said...

MEN! So casual about it too...LOL. Oh well not meant to be. Your next plan sounds even better.

Heaven's Walk said...

Ahhhhh......a MUCH better weekend, Diana! Well...unless you had some romantic little getaway planned and was going to wear that.....never mind. I won't go there. :) hehehe!

xoxo laurie

Betsy@ coastal-colors said...

I've been there too- not fun! I love that you turned it into a lovely weekend though! You have the cutest grandchildren! I love the snow covered playhouse! Adorable!

Bella said...

Hi Diana,
Ahhh.. but the playhouse is darling, and just think about that guilt, something good will come of it!!
Stay warm!
Hugs,
Bella

Claudia said...

Sorry about your trip cancellation! I used to go to the UP fairly often when I lived in my home state of Michigan.

It's cold up there now, I bet!
