Well, the New Year has started and would you believe that I've actually started at least 3 posts between now and then, but haven't finished even ONE of them? Well, folks, that ends TODAY.
However, I am not going to force myself to finish those posts today, because well, I just don't want to.
So what I'm going to do instead is just tell you all what I've been up to. Riveting, I know. :)
This first week of the new year has been a long one for us, trying to get back into the swing of our very hectic schedule after a blissful 10 days of nothingness...no taekwondo, no swimming, no school, no piano, NO DRIVING ANYWHERE. Bliss, I tell you....pure and unadulterated bliss. I was more than happy to not leave the house at all and just live in my yoga pants and pajamas. And the munchkins were happy to play Wii, and Legos, and everything else they could come up with.
Of course, I cooked myself into a wonderful little frenzy over the holidays to be sure. Cookies, candies, an absolutely beautiful and tasty turkey complete with a festive salad and creamy mashed potatoes on Christmas Eve, cinnamon rolls and breakfast casserole on Christmas morning, turkey & noodles with mashed potatoes on Christmas Day...and then I was done. I barely stepped foot in the kitchen the rest of the week! And though you all know how much I love to cook and just be in my kitchen in general, I enjoyed the respite. And truth be told, we just didn't have any more room in the fridge, the pantry, or our bellies.
But of course, now we are trying to get back into the swing of things...back to reality! And like I said, it's been a looooong week. So this morning when Noah requested that we skip taekwondo, I graciously complied. He and Kendall got themselves up, bathed, dressed, and quickly commenced playing Lego Star Wars. Fine with me...I've had Julie & Julia sitting here for weeks, and I've been dying to watch it. So watch it I am...while I'm blogging. YAY!
Later today, the kids are headed to Aunt Jessie's for a sleepover and Harry Potter movie marathon. And I...I am going to have an awesome girls night out with my BFF. I can hardly wait! Barry is out hunting, so I can do whatever I desire...within reason, LOL! Hope you all are gearing up for a fun weekend as well!
Hope to see you back here real soon...I miss blogging so much!
