I have no idea why, but this week feels like it's lasted forever. I'm glad it's the weekend. We have virtually nothing going on and I'm looking forward to some family time.
We started the relaxation last night, actually, with some game and reading time with the kiddos. Then Silas and I washed dishes while Tim hung out with the other two. After the kids went down Tim and I watched Evan Almighty. Didn't really know anything about it ahead of time, but we enjoyed it. Lots of laughs. I was able to sneak in some reading time in bed while Tim showered, then konked out for the night. My kids are finally adjusting to the time change, so they slept til 7:00 instead of 6:00. So glad for that.
This morning I discovered that the flower fairy was my grandma. She left the flower on the porch because she didn't think anyone was home. We were actually just back in a bedroom working on school, but I'm glad she didn't know that. The surprise and mystery was fun!
Today I have one kid with a scratchy throat and another with a snotty nose. So, we're going to have a mellow day here. Candle is burning, fort has been built, humidifier will go on as soon as I'm done with this post, veggie soup will get started on the stove. Ironically, I actually got dressed today. I've had several jammy days this week, but decided to show a little responsibility today. Just a little.
The rest of the weekend will consist of a hair cut, church (assuming everyone is healthy by then), working on stuff around the house, another movie from the library, picking up free, chocolate dipped fruit from Edible Arrangements, and just hanging out with the fam.
We've been so busy and basketball season is underway, so I'm thankful that we have a mellow weekend ahead of us.
