So as you know i’m taking part of a challenge that leads up to Valentines Day! Its just little things you can do to show your spouse that you love them etc. Day 1 was to greet your husband at the door. I feel that so many times you lose the connectedness that you once had when you were first married. (Don’t worry, we’re doing fine, but we are a bit more “routine” now)
Had a great day at work today. No particular reason, but was energetic, and upbeat nonetheless, even though I didn’t go to bed until 12:30am! And I will probably do it again tonight! Came home, and greeted my husband with a hug, and a smooch, and asked him how his day with Kirra went. They didn’t make it to the gym, but he’s going to just skip it tonight and go tomorrow.
I had LOTS of running around to do tonight, so I just cooked a quick microwave dinner for the three of us, (because I like to cook), and then Kirra and I went to AWANA for the first time. Its basically Sunday School for kids. She really liked it. I was the only parent there. Everyone else leaves there kids at church and go off shopping,or on a date night. Does anyone else go to Awana and leave there kids there? This is not my home church that I go to. I think if I was just “dropping” her off at Eagle Brook I’d have a totally different approach, but I don’t know these people. It was fun though. I will bring books to read while she is in her lesson, and perhaps someday I may run across the street (literally) to Target.
After AWANA Kirra and I flew into target to get stuff for the cabin. I’ll be dropping Kirra off at my parents for 3 nights & 4 days. It will be the longest she’s ever been away from us. While I will be sad,it will be nice for Jason and I to spend some time together as just adults, and for longer than just a date night! So,i’m excited.
Need to read and journal tonight, and of course watch Days of our lives. Tomorrow is my last day at work until Monday! Nice vacation :)Can’t wait!
So as some of you know, I followed this blog about a little preemie named Kayleigh. She was truely a miracle. Her mom Aimee has a blog as well, its called Women’s Marriage Ministry. To give tips, and advice to wives who are at all different stages of their marriages.
So its the last week of January! Phew! Two more months until Spring. Yahoo! I used to love the winter time! Except that this winter we’re poor, so we can’t afford to do our favorite winter activities, so when we were teased last week with 30 degree weather I thought (actually) that we were done with cold weather for a little bit!
Well its finally Friday! I’m blogging in just the nick of time before Midnight! Jason is off playing poker, and I just finished a Days of our Lives Marathon! Kirra and I stayed home tonight, and had lots of fun. We watched Monsters Inc, and then took a nice long bath, splashing, and having fun! Then Kirra and I hung out in “mommy & daddy’s” bed, and read books before bed time. Now i’m just finishing up for the evening, and Tyler is warming up Jason’s spot! Hopefully Jason did well tonight. No pictures today. Hopefully tomorrow!
Well Kirra has been asking to go to the potty a lot more, and she also hates wearing diapers most of the time now. She will cry when she has to wear one. At least with me. So I have been taking her diapers, and velcroing the straps on, so she can step into them. Jason decided since we’re taking her to the potty a lot more now, he’d go buy her some pull-ups.
This week is absolutely just flying by! I think i’m pretty much riding the bus now. For a few reasons. My fare is getting low on my Go-To card. To I think $10. It takes so much longer to take the bus, and while I think it’s fun to take the bus, especially in the morning, I also really enjoy sleeping in, plus the ride home is much longer, and I get “bus sick”. Plus on my second bus in the morning, there is this overly friendly older man. Its fine to be friendly, but I have an inner feeling that tells me he’s odd. I will definitely take the train to the Mall of America, and to the Twins games though! (Especially Twins Games!).
Tomorrow is my PT job meeting, and off day for running. My co-worker and I also did 25 flights of stairs today! I really really felt it in my calfs running and i have a feeling i’m going to wake up and hardly be able to walk tomorrow! That’s what I get tho for eating a bunch of crap. I’ve really been laying off the pop tho, and i think that’s helped a lot. I haven’t weighed myself on the Wii lately but I feel i’ve lost some tummy weight,so that’s terrific. That’s the goal.
Sigh…. 10 more days and we’ll be off for the cabin. I really really can’t wait! I need to get reading for my New thru 30 Assignment or I’m going to be up all night!!!!!
I seriously need to start posting some pictures soon! I’ve completely fallen off the bandwagon with picture taking, but will hop back on very quickly! We had a good Monday. I met up with my small group, and we went thru the first two chapters. I think everyone had a good time. I’m also working on this project, New thru 30, where i’m reading thru the new testament in 30 days! Its quite a challenge, but i’m making progress. Then I blog about my favorite verse/chapter etc on this one website with other people who are doing it, and we learn from eachother.
