I might as well fill you in on the title first... yesterday I had a meeting at the Bair Foundation to see about doing some contract work, so Carol came over to watch Jackson until Jon got home from work. Jack was taking his nap, so she decided to go sit out on our deck for a little bit. I took the monitor out, made sure she didn't want a drink, and then left. Little did I know, habit had set in, and immediately upon closing the deck door, I also locked it!!! 20 minutes later, at TBF, I got a phone call from Jon saying "Did you lock my mom out of the house?" It took me a minute to even think of what he could be talking about. Luckily he was already on his way home, and he rescued her just in time for Jackson to wake up! I felt (and still feel!) rather stupid, but it could have been much worse! Sorry Carol, and I'm sure Joelle is making plans to destroy me as she reads this :)
In other less embarassing news, we went to MD for the weekend to visit my family and to go to a friends surprise 30th birthday party! It was great to see some friends that I haven't been around for quite a long time! Many of them, I'm finding out, read this blog and never comment! You know who you are! We left my parents' Sunday afternoon and headed to the cabin, and then came home on Monday. Monday evening we went to Jon's parent's for a birthday celebration! I had to include this picture of one of Jon's presents...new muck boots... Jon & Jackson both loved them! Jon's actual birthday was yesterday and he turned a quarter of a century old. (Yes, I am a cradle robber).
The most exciting update...this weekend we are going to New York City! I have never been there before, and I'm so excited! A little nervous about leaving Jackson behind, but I know he will have a great time with Nana and Peeps!
One last side note...mostly for Glade people....we played Human Dutch Blitz at youth group a few weeks ago...brought back great memories of playing in the church basement!!
