This has been quite a busy end of the week - I haven't had time to blog and haven't had time to read/comment on blogs much. I have put off the planning of a dinner we are hosting tomorrow night so that has been my project tonight. I think I've made 5 lists for tomorrow - cleaning, shopping, food etc. We will have around 18 people here, so I probably should get with it. :) Oh well. It will be fun even if it's not exactly what I initially had in mind. And I'm so glad everyone is bringing a dish to share!
Next week, Andrew and I are off for our weekend away - I'm counting down the days! I'll miss the kiddos but after being up much of the night last night (and several nights of late), I'm ready for some rest. :) We've been in a bad sleep cycle for the past week or two. I'm very hopeful that we will soon be into a better one. Work has also been busy and I'm ready for some time off - yes, I'm fully aware that I don't even work that many hours. It's just been challenging adding the extra hours this month but I'm so thankful for God's provision of the income.
The boys and I met Andrew downtown for dinner tonight. The restaurant we went to had a deal this month that kids ate for $1 with the purchase of an adult meal. It saved us $10 and we had a great time. I enjoyed not cooking and since Andrew needed to work late, it allowed us some time with him.
That's about it from here...terribly boring, I know. I'll work on something more interesting! :) Oh and I've been feeling rather nostalgic lately so...the picture above was taken within a couple months of our oldest sons coming home to be forever ours.
