Thursday, means one more day till Friday! It's kinda like trying to bike up a giant hill and you can almost see the top... it's painful, but you are almost there!
I woke up to a foggy Alaska. And that's how I pretty much felt in the morning, like in a fog or frenzy. Like, is it really another day? Really? Needless to say, I actually had some sleep! I hit the sack and even hit the REM stage of sleep. Today the kids had oatmeal, something quick and good.
Hubby and I drop the kids off to school.
I love watching Isabel walk into the school. Her teacher has taught them to use their "Bubbles (fill mouths with air, so they be quiet) and Bumpers (they cross their hands to their chest, so they won't touch anyone else).. So I always hear: "Alright Ms. Barnes class, Bubbles and Bumpers!" and like little toy soldiers, all the kids blow up their cheeks and cross their arms.
We make a pit stop to our favorite cafe (of course). We decided to take it to go since the hubby needs to head to bed and with me working in a few hours.
We enjoy a nice breakfast at home. (Okay, this is us with the self-timer, notice, I don't do well when I know the shot is going to be taken.. ask anyone, I hate being in front of the camera!)
(What am I doing, kissing the burrito?)
Then we lounge and catch up on some of our recorded shows, I opted for CSI Miami, but this one was Pushing Daisies.
Shortly after, the hubby went to bed for the day. I cleaned up the house, put a few loads of laundry in, put dinner in the crockpot, and I was off to work.
(Thanks Leslie for sneaking up on me for this shot!)
(Smile Amber! Thanks for being a good sport and being a part of my "Week In My Life" after all you do play a part in it, cause I see you quite often! She's so "sweet". )
Erica came by to say "hi!"
I got a picture with one of my most favorite visitors, Ms. Leslie. She's so much fun, I love discussing politics, and her inspirational mojo rubbed on me today! I worked on next, next week's creative cafe! Thanks girl!
Guess who else came by to say hello? My girls, Paula and Dulce! Ladies, I feel so loved! But in reality they just wanted to get some of that new stuff we just got in, but I like to think it was me!
6 pm came and it was time for me to head home. The hubby should already be heading to work so I won't see him till the morning! It's tough being ships passing sometimes... that's why I like to make the most of our days off. (See Lynne, we've got a tiny city!)
I get home. The BBQ pork is ready. The kids are excited that I'm home. I've got Isabel attached to my hip. After dinner, since there is no school tomorrow, Isabel and I decided to make a quick trip to Michaels. I needed more adhesive for my scrapbook weekend, and I wanted to make some chocolate lollipops with them tomorrow too! But first, a pit stop to fill the tank!
We get home and bought more than just ingredients to make candied lollipops! Isabel decided she wants to paints her pumpkins tonight! Caelan joins her, he loves to paint and draw, anything artsy! And he leaves his sleep over friend, Jordan to play video games solo. (Who would ditch their friend to go paint with their little sister? My son would, well at least this one.)
Well I'm still up editing photos, updating my blog, and listening to Pandora with a Rob Thomas station. I'm determined to finish these (and crazy at the same time, it's 3 am!)
Well, Blog World, I will not be posting tomorrow for Friday's A Week In My Life. I am headed out to a little, minute, minuscule, nanoscale of a town called Wasilla to a cabin in Big Lake, with the girls to scrapbook for an entire weekend! Kid free, husband free, probably internet free, cell phone free, civilization free, instead replaced by the quiet of a cabin nestled deep inside the woods! I can't remember the last time I did that.. oh wait, I've never done that before! So I will "connect" with you all on Monday. (Can you hear the hesitancy of not having wi-fi?)
