Me and My Gal

Fiddlesticks. Just as I'm getting the hang of this blog-thing and actually have had a few nice gals drop by, I'm heading out for the weekend. But I'm so excited about this little trip.

For Christmas we gave our daughter a "gift certificate" for a mother-daughter weekend which includes visiting the new Boutique & Bistro of a certain doll store. She still has a bit of little girl in her, so now's our chance. So she and I are headed for a weekend at the mall in North Texas. She's got her grandparents' Christmas money to spend and I've got birthday money I've been saving for such a time as this.

And even better to my heart than the mall is the hotel. With maid service. And, although I dearly love my husband, I do sleep better without his apnea machine roaring like a wind tunnel next to me. (Although the machine is an improvement over the snoring. . . .)

I figure I better grab this opportunity while my girl still wants to be seen with me. She still thinks I'm pretty cool most of the time, and I'm gonna hang onto that as long as I can.

So please save my chair while I'm gone. I'll be wanting to share a cup with you when I get back.

What an awesome gift to both of you! It is great that you want to be a part of her life and that she wants you to be.
Enjoy the time. They grow up quickly and move away. But, I found with my grown daughters great friends. We share so much together even though we don't live very close. We talk daily and I'm still a part of their lives as well as they a huge part of mine.

Hi and welcome to blogland! I stopped by on the advice of Lisa at the Preacher's Wife.

I, too, am an RN -- although I don't practice bedside anymore. I love to blog and learn about others through their blogs. I'll definately stop by to visit again. Feel free to stop in and visit me too!

Welcome to the Blogsphere Linda!

It is so nice to meet you! I can't wait to share some life, some chuckles, and other fun stuff with you!

You sound like a blast!

PS - My dh has one of those machines roaring next to our bed too...but, I love it so much that I turn it on even when he is out of town...something about that Nature noise (white noise) that I totally LOVE!

Nice to meet ya,

Hi, Linda. I came over here to welcome you to blogland. You are going to absolutely love it! I have met so many wonderful Christian women on this blog who have been such an encouragement. I have been blessed and I pray you will be as well. I will come back often to check up on you! I am a dental hygienist so I think we already have something in common. Wait... I wanted to be a nurse but decided on dental hygiene. I love nurses!
Hope you had a nice weekend.
Angie xoxo

Thank you for your comment at CWO today. Your words and thoughts were very encouraging to me. It is wonderful to know we have sisters in Christ who have walked and experienced similar places in life.

i think that is the most adorable thing i've ever heard. i hope your baby girl found all kinds of goodies for her doll!

and maid service? divine stuff. I'm certain i'll have a laundry girl in heaven. :))

I too have a teenage daughter who still likes to hang out with me. I'll savor it for as long as I can! While her brother and dad were gone on a missions trip to Guatemala, she and her younger sister slept with me just about every night (except for the girlfriend sleepover night). Hope your mother-daughter trip goes well!

How fun! I think my girls are starting to fade on their American Girl love. It makes me a little sad, knowing it means they are growing up. But my #3 daughter has been playing with them this morning. :)
