This morning Liam woke up all excited, with the knowledge that he and daddy were going to visit grandma and grandpa's house. He was so excited that he didn't even want to eat breakfast before the left. So I said goodbye to my guys and the headed off. It was hard for me see him go without me. I was a little maudlin. But the reason that they went on a little adventure without me was so that I could finish writing my dissertation. Two days alone was just what I needed to get the job done. I finished up the last writing and editing Sunday morning! What a relief to have my draft done. I was very excited to have them home Sunday afternoon. We went out to dinner to celebrate.
