As the Pendulum Swings…

by Lisa Donovan

Three days ago, we thought we were embarking upon a weekend without the kids. Their grandparents were due to take them for the weekend for a grandkid party down at their Pensacola residence. They called to cancel about two days ago. We went from a weekend alone (ahhh, sleeping in, late night wine fests, some afternoon delight perhaps..) along with plans with our friends who are coming in from Brooklyn as well as my brother who is coming in tonight from flight school to being completely bombarded with disappointment. We were going to be doing grown up things with other grown ups that we adore. We can deal with having our children for the weekend, after all, as we got closer to them leaving I was starting to miss them quite a bit. But, once my inlaws got wind of how disappointed we were about the canceled weekend, they decided to come up to cheer us up. Whew. So, now, we will have several friends from Brooklyn, my brother, our two kids and my in laws here this weekend.. I love them all - but just wasn’t expecting them all in one fell swoop and I’m not quite sure how I am going to juggle it all.
Alas, there will be no sleeping in and, most certainly, no sky rockets in flight this weekend. I am sure it will be fun, just a different kind of fun than we were expecting.
