Driveway Delays - Blame It on the Rain! Maybe? Maybe Not?

They say, "Rome wasn't built in a day."  It sure was built faster than our driveway.  It should've taken 4 days to take out the old driveway and put in a new one; 4 1/2 months later we finally have a driveway. Milli Vanilli and the contractor would say Blame It on The Rain.  I say blame it on the contractor and his heavy dose of false promises, no-show appointments, and horribly blown schedules.  They still have a ton of mess to clean up (that is an accurate weight based on the pile of old concrete in our yard), but at least there is a way to walk into the house.  .

Outside of fighting with our concrete vendor, we have been living the good life. We officially became Californians over Spring Break, by taking our first trip to Hawaii.  It seems everyone in California goes to Hawaii and goes often.  You didn't have to twist my arm to join that West Coast right of passage.  We had a fabulous time.  The weather was great, the beaches beautiful, and we did many fabulous things.  Our most favorite part was seeing sea turtles on the beach.  Although Hawaii's Green See Turtles are a different species from the Loggerheads in the Atlantic, it was like coming full circle after seeing baby turtles hatch on the North Carolina coast last summer.

With memories of an amazing Spring Break to power us through, we now have our sites set on the end of the school year.  I know I'm not the one actually going to school, but as the mom I definitely have a supporting role and am looking forward to the closing curtain on another school year.  Please let this summer be the lazy days type (ha, that won't happen, but one can dream).

That is life in MomZania.
