I love those days where you can stay home and catch up! I had one on Tuesday, well almost a full day of doing nothing. ; )

I think those kind of days are important, too many people rush around and I think it makes us sick!

What do you think, Jeannie?

I don't get sick (knock on wood), but just feel very worn down and tired, then I can't see to enjoy the simple things.

I worry about my Mom, she seems to be very tired too, I think that she and you try too hard to keep up with your kids.

I feel guilty when Mom helps me when she is so tired.

I think it is just natural instinct to help our your kids even when you are worn down. It is important to stop and smell the flowers!

Yes, we opened the cabin on a beautiful sunny (but chilly) day. It is spotless!
We do have berries around the cabin, but we actually have a ton more at home. At home we have a enormous blackberry bush and lots of raspberries. We love going berry picking together (with lots of bug spray, lol).
That is a hard question, Brenda! We love both the cabin and the pool which is why we alternate weekends between home and the cabin. If it will be hot and sunny, I'll definitely be pool-side. I love being at the cabin when it is cooler or rainy. I love sleeping in with the rain coming down and then having a lazy day.

It wasn't too hard though, was it, Jeannie?

No, DH and I tackled it pretty quickly. The cabin is his favorite place in the world. He went back up on Friday to work and stayed overnight. He is building an addition to the cabin (a master bedroom/bath). There are only 2 small bedrooms that the kids use. We sleep on the futon in the family room. It will be nice to actually have a bed to sleep in!
