We have an awesome pool*!

*It’s just 50 miles away and not technically ours.

Once again, we were spoiled by Grammy. Gorgeous pool, poolside lunch, two hours of quiet time for me while G napped, and a delicious dinner that ended with Hoodsies. Plus, we had some special guest stars, RyRy and Sean-O.

The only thing that can tear George away from his cars? A spooky story from Grammy.

Keep your hands clear of George  when Hoodsies are involved.

Remember last visit when they attacked Uncle Matt? Payback's a bridge (which is what Hazy, thankfully, thought I said during one particular road rage incident).

After hearing some nightmare mother-in-law stories from some of my friends, I consider myself even more┬álucky to have Grammy. She always goes all out to make sure we have a great time. Today, this was just what I needed. I’m about 75% strength, and it was so nice to be able to lie down for two hours midday and to have someone make me lunch and dinner.

Also, final one-on-one minute count: Hazel, 11 (!); George, 8. Not too shabby.

If you have any ideas for future adventures, please let me know in the comments section. Today, my friend Anna suggested we take the Downeaster to Maine (Upeaster?) for some ME time, and my friend Leslie, now a fellow stay-at-home in NH, suggested a beach day . Check and check.
