Thursday was Thanksgiving, of course, so we hit the road and headed up to visit Chris' dad and stepmom for the day. They live @ an hour and a half away...not a big deal. It was a great day. Both of Chris' brothers were there, my sister-in-law, two nephews and two nieces. Andrew and Hannah had SO much fun playing with their cousins. It was fabulous. Chris played football with his brothers and oldest nephew and has, I think, discovered that he is either too old to play football OR needs to do it more often so his body doesn't rebel so severely next time. Heh. Neither of them napped, of course, so as soon as they got in the car they passed out. It made for a peaceful ride home, but screwed up their bedtime routine a bit. Eh, we survived.
|My very own Coupon Chris!|
Today I took Hannah on a "mommy date" to Target for shopping and Wendy's for lunch (hey, I had a coupon!) -- hoping to satisfy her intense need for mommy -- and when they both went down for naps, I went to get a haircut. I've been trying to grow my hair out and needed to get a trim so it wouldn't look quite so out-of-control. Tomorrow is Sunday. I actually don't have that "Sunday feeling" of dread because of a new school week coming. This weekend I am actually looking forward to getting back in our routine. The kids and I THRIVE on routine. I love being home with them so much but man, do I love that routine. Fortunately, things will return to normal soon.
