Weekend Recap

We had quite an eventful weekend... all of which concluded with me not getting anything accomplished. Everything I planned to do, did not get done with the exception of about 7 loads of laundry- though I still need to put it all away so i dont feel like the task is completed. I didn't do any cleaning, any organizing. I didn't get around to any of the items I'm hoping to sell.

On Saturday we did some food shopping and then just kind of hung around the house. Hunter had his buddy Michael sleep over and Quinlin was extra fussy so we were in bed early. On Sunday, I went to see my parents and do a little shopping. Owen tore my parents house apart. He really is such a cutie- such a curious little thing. My mom and I took the babies to Target and I was able to start on my holiday list and that was about it. On my way home, I had a call from my MIL telling me that my FIL was supposed to be back at my BIL's house but they hadn't heard from him. I told her I would keep my eyes and ears open for him in case he came by, but didnt think anything of it. By 6pm, everyone was worried. They had filed a missing persons report and my BIL was already out driving around trying to find him. By 8pm, Sean was getting really worried too. He ventured out to drive around town as well- driving through my FIL's old neighborhood, looking for any sign of him. Nothing. We really were thinking the worst (with his history which I won't get into here). At about 10:30pm, we got a call that he had been found- about 2 hours south of us after getting picked up by the highway patrol for going the wrong way on a 4 lane highway. Thank god he didn't hurt anyone or himself. Sean, his sister and mother all drove down to pick him up and they got back to my inlaws at about 3:00am. It definitely was a scary night that has seemed to have opened the doors to some other issues.... hopefully between us, we can figure out what happened, get some answers, and prevent anything like this from happening again. :(


  1. Wow, that sounds so scary! Glad everyone ended up okay!

  2. Hi Shannon, finally catching up on my blog reading tonight. I am so sorry to hear about your FIL, what a serious story. It sounds like your family is pulling together to help prevent this from happening again. I will be praying for him and your family.
