I hope everyone is doing well today! We have yet another super busy weekend. I am hoping to actually make it around to everyone this weekend. I have not done too well the past couple of weekends.
I really thought this week was going to settle down a bit, now that we are finished with basketball but it hasn't seemed to end up that way! Wednesday was Baseball Boy's birthday. Tigerfan always takes off on the children's birthdays and we try to celebrate most of the day. We took him to his favorite Chinese buffet...where he ate french fries, onion rings and the meat for sweet and sour chicken (in other words, chicken nuggets). If we had known he wanted a Happy Meal, we could have saved A LOT of money by going to McDonalds! He really got a bit shafted on his B-day because it was on Wed. By 4:00, all the festivities had to stop so our long night of church activities could begin. However, he got a new air soft gun with $ from his grandparents so he was happy. And I was happy because he got the gun in lieux of the hamster he had been threatening to get since Sunday! NO MORE PETS around here!
Today, we are off to see "The Music Man" put on by one of the local schools so I really must go soon. Then we have guitar and tonight, I have a Women's Event at church. It is "Celebration Weekend" so tomorrow, we have kids day at church followed by a men's event tomorrow night, a special service Sunday Morning and then a "Youth Extravaganza" Sunday night. BUT if we get through all of that, next week is SPRING BREAK!!! It is much earlier than everyone else's and in a couple of weeks, I'll wish we were out with friends but this week, I am super excited!
As for small things, I started off with a bang! I was DETERMINED to do them all this month. I have a snappy dresser, I was nice and positive with my family, and then I just plumb forgot to clean out under my sink. That was an easy one, too, cause we did it last year and I have kept it pretty neat. All I had to do was straighten a couple of vases and throw a few sacks away and I would have had it done and I FORGOT! Of course, I also went to change Tigercub's diaper the other day and forgot the diaper, so I am not entirely sure why I am so surprised, but that is beside the point.
I hope all of you have had a good week. My heart goes out to several friends who have had difficult weeks. I have two friends that have lost a parent this week and several more that are having health issues. It makes me very grateful for my healthy family and appreciative of what I have...no whining today!!! Hope to visit with many of you at some point this weekend!
