Week Four

Pin It (I think I've said before - these posts are primarily for Jim and will likely bore anyone else to tears. Feel free to skip them over, my feelings won't be hurt.)

Everyone made it to church, and we arrived with no one in tears.
Gabbi spent the night with a friend.
I watched Mamma Mia.
I completed days 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and didn't die, except maybe for a few minutes when I did level 2 and kind of wished for death. (To me or to Jillian, I'm not quite sure.)
I talked with a friend about diabetes.
The kids and I went to Parkdale Mall and left empty handed.
The kids and I went to Sam's and did not leave empty handed. We did leave in the pouring down rain though.
The girls went bowling.
Brendan went to see Kung Fu Panda at the dollar movie with friends.
I went to the doctor.
The kids went to the Roberts' house and had a FABULOUS time!
I did a little shopping all by myself. (I had forgotten what it was like to try things on and actually be able to look in the mirror rather than zipping fast to keep Brendan from escaping under the doors!)
We went to a church picnic.
Gabbi (mildly) sprained her ankle.
The kids went fishing and had an absolute ball. Brendan kept telling me he was sorry he didn't bring me a fish. I was thankful that he didn't bring me a fish. :-P
I had a co-op meeting.
The kids built a massive fort in the living room.
Gabbi spent the night with another friend.
I cleaned my room.
We went to a friend's house on the 4th of July for lunch.
We went to a friend's house on the 4th of July for supper.
We watched a few fireworks, and watched the dog freak out. I'll leave it to you to decide which we found more interesting.
I watched about half of season one of Psych.

As you can see, this was a calmer week for us, and that was a good thing. It's now been a month, and as much as I would like to say we're settling into a routine, well, that's just not happening. I blame summer. We will all be going to Spokane later this week, and we're really hoping for a break from the sweltering southeast Texas weather! Really REALLY hoping.

1. You forgot to mention that you single-handedly arrived at church like 20 minutes early! with THREE kids! all fully dressed and looking cute as a button! So proud! I can't do that with two kids!
2. I just have to ask....did you sing and dance when you watched mama mia? I would never do something so childish...especially not standing on the couch and singing and dancing. me? Never! Just wondering if you did. ;)
3. Dont' kill Jillian yet because you are looking hotttt!!

love you! thanks for the updates on how you are doing.
