Rock Star Treatment

Home again.      After a wonderful week in Atlanta we have unpacked everything and almost washed all of the dirty laundry.   

We have even made trips to the ER as we discovered that Little Guy broke his elbow while we were at the skating rink on Saturday.      In a weird twist of events, he didn't break it while skating but while we were taking off skates.     He had lifted up a foot to get help getting a knot out of his skate and his other foot flew out from under him.    He landed flat on his back with his right arm pinned under him.    As expected he said it hurt when it happened, but he seemed fine for the rest of the night.   He played and only said that it was sore.    The next morning he said that it was really sore and the ride home was really uncomfortable.    A trip to the ER revealed the broken elbow.    *sigh*

When we were driving home we receiving an email from hubs.      It said this:  

You guys rock so I'm treating you like rock stars.... 
So that being said I need your lists of things you want when in your rooms when you arrive.

Is that not the sweetest thing you have ever read?     The boys emailed him back with their requests.     Little Guy wanted colored pencils and a Nestle Crunch bar.   Big Guy wanted a game that he had played at his friends house.     Me?   I just wanted a glass of my husband's sweet tea and a good hot shower.     Forget McAlister's.... my hubs makes the best sweet tea in the world!       
When we got home he had the sweetest gifts for us.     The best gift I received was seeing his sweet face and walking into a clean house, a bed with clean sheets and his strong arms to hug me tight!
