1 up ~ 1 down: November 21st

1 up:
     Last Friday I traveled with the kids up to meet up with Charlie who had given a speech that day in Boston.  It went really well; the kids did wonderful in the car, traffic was not too bad and I didn't lose anyone at either of the pit stops.  Leaving home at about 3:30p I arrived at the Providence Amtrak Station to meet Charlie just 20 minutes ahead of his 10:30 train ~ not bad coordination across six states.  The hotel we then journeyed to was very nice and the next morning we enjoyed some family swim time in the pool before meeting up with more of my husband's family out on Cape Cod.

1 down:
    Being sick; unfortunately it was my turn for the sore throat/fever virus we have been passing around the house with me feeling my worst just as we were all sitting down for a family dinner marking the 10 year anniversary of my father-in-law's passing.

1 more up:
   Later that evening after sending Lisbeth off to enjoy a sleep-over with her cousin and tucking the other two into their beds I got to curl-up in bed with some Ben&Jerry's and my Kindle app.

Please now head-over to Chrystina Noel for more 1 down ~ 1up.


  1. Mmm, Ben and Jerry's and a book. Sounds lovely!

  2. I'm impressed by your 6-state driving coordination, it really is how many states you can cross in the northeast in no time at all. And yes, while there never is a good time to be feeling sick, that definitely sounds like a less-than-ideal one. And finally, that picture of Caitlin and Liam in bed is adorable, by the way. Thanks for playing along last week, and happy early Thanksgiving!
