Wonderful Saturday!

One of the things that has always "bothered" me about my life is that our weekends have always been very boring...just more of the same, etc. For so many years, Kyle worked 3rd shift and a LOT of overtime. So, on weekends we just stayed at home and did nothing and it's kind of just become what we do. nothing. LOL Today was different and I am just so thrilled. I have already decided that since I am working full time and the kids are in school and I am getting less time with them, that we really need to make our weekends count as far as quality time goes.

This morning I woke up with the little darlings at 6:30 and made them go back to sleep..I slept with Dylan until 7:30 and then TRIED to quietly get out of his bed and he woke up. So, we got up and had breakfast and I took a cat nap on the couch. at 10, I went in and cuddled with Kyle, we NEVER do that in the mornings so it was really nice to just spend time with each other. After that we got up and ate breakfast and then got ready to leave. We took the boys to the Museum of Natural History and checked out all the animals and the kids played on the big indoor playground and we watched a movie in the Planeterium. Then we went to Outback for dinner. They were so good and we had a really good time.

Now the boys are in bed and Kyle and I are going to watch Date Movie. I'm excited. :)

My profile picture is SO scary!! Holy...I don't even know what!!! I THOUGHT that picture ws a good looks good in it's normal size...make it that small and WHOA, NELLIE!! SUH-CAAARRRRRRR-Y!!! :-) So, I need to get that changed ASAP. (Like my MAJOR use of CAPS in this entry?!?! LOL) I'll try to change that tonight when I am on the laptop where all the photos are stored....we'll see. Of course I am going to have to keep the scary one up for awhile now, because if I change it to a "good" picture and someone reads this entry and thinks that I think the "good" picture is the SUH-CAAARRY one and comments their agreement of the scariness..I'm gonna be annoyed. LOL So...maybe I'll wait a few days......

5 years ago, when the 1st tower was hit, I was on the computer checking my mail and message boards and 9 month old Logan was playing at my feet. At a little after 9, I turned off the computer, scooped up my baby and went into the living room to watch Regis and Kelly. I watched the 2nd tower get hit and then ran to the bedroom to wake up Kyle. We watched the coverage for the rest of the day. I was so glad that Logan was so young and innocent. (Dylan was conceived 2 weeks later.)

So hard to believe it has been 5 years. We watched the anniversary coverage all day today. NBC replayed their coverage of 9/11. It was like living it all over again. Even though I KNEW what was going to happen...the fear in the pit of my stomach was still there. I watched, I cried, I remembered.

We will never forget.

It's the little things!

Before my trip to TX at the end of July, I got acrylic nails put on. It was spur of the moment and a splurge. I had them filled in about 3 weeks ago and wasn't real impressed with the place I went...I wasn't THAT thrilled with the orignial place either. So, today mom and I went to get our nails done and decided to check out this new place right up the street. Oh my gosh, I am SOOOO glad we went there. The girl did an awesome job..AWESOME! I love love love my nails. I also ended up getting a pedicure (mom's treat) and it was probably THE BEST pedicure I have ever had.


Ever Watch Doogie Howser? Every night at the end of the closed with Doogie typing in his journal. I should be that way. I should close every night of my life with a blog entry. It would take very little time and it would keep me from feeling like such a blgger loser. I'm going to try REALLY hard to do that. We'll see how long it lasts!! :)

Big changes here lately. Logan started Kindergarten and Dylan started pre-school. Just when I was SO excited to have alone time on MWF (Dylans school days) I got "promoted" to full time at work. No relaxing alone time for me. Instead I will be spending MY alone time helping the parents of the world with their diaper purchases! Not that I'm complaining...I'm NOT..I'm just saying is all!!
