Weekend Wrap-Up

We will see how this goes - I am typing this from my Cell. Since tomorrow is Martin Luther King Day, that means no school for Megan so she is up later tonight. Actually, we are laying in bed watching TV! My husband is finally back at work after his extended stay at home with his broken toe. I must admit that as nice as it was having him home for 4 weeks - it is nice having the routine back too. Although, I think I had more withdrawals with him being gone then the kids did!

It was actually a quiet weekend. Friday evening after my daughter's Brownie meeting we went to Portillo's. Her teacher gave us a gift card for Christmas as a thank you for helping out with class parties. We all love dinning out, but don't much any more. On Saturday morning Rob got a call from the Fire Department that they needed him, so off he went. While there, someone needed Sunday evening off so it worked out great since he had already picked up Sunday Day. (Back on normal computer now, whew!) Saturday I just spent the day with the kids inside. It is really hard though for our kids to function together at times though with there being 3 of them. Saturday was one of them - it seems every few minutes I was refereeing some fight for them. Since they were upstairs, I decided to bring a book up there and read in my bedroom. I figured my presence up there may be enough to cut down on the arguing.

It did help, and eventually Ethan wanted to stay in the room with me to watch one of his Thomas VHS's from the library. So while reading and watching Thomas I kept dozing off! Megan and Anna ended up coming in the room too and coloring on the floor next to the bed. Everyone was behaving so perfectly too. At one point, after I was done dozing, I looked over at Ethan and he actually fell asleep right next time me! First time he's ever done that. :-) I enjoyed the moment and then I really needed to wake up him since now they are both at the stage when if they nap at all it effects their bedtime big time.

Rob came home from the Fire Department for the evening and night and then was back there early this morning.

Today was a very nice day with the kids - church this morning. We then came home, ate lunch and hung our at home for just a bit. I then took the kids to the library for a couple of hours. The kids love going to the library which thrills me since I am such an avid reader. By the time we got home it was just about time for dinner and then the night time routine.

Overall - a really good weekend for the first weekend with dad back at work. :-)

Keep watching for a review and a giveaway that I will be posting! I will be posting a review of Overstock.com which will include a 10% off coupon for all readers! The other will be a review/giveaway for doozycards.com. The post for Overstock.com will be up this week, so make sure you watch for it!
