Today has been a laid back, relaxed, kid friendly type of day. Games with the kids, a good book and warm blanket while they napped, and the prospect of a hot and wonderful dinner tonight. This morning the kids and I cleaned, and then played hysterically on the floor and cuddled and watched a Scooby Doo show while we had our snack of cheese and crackers. While they napped I read Misfortune, a rather funny book about a boy who grows up as a girl (his father wanted a female child) and has to sort it all out later. It may turn out to be rather depressing, but at this point it still has that point of nonsense that lends to comedy. Tonight I'm making grilled chicken and almond rice with some nice fall zuchinni on the side, and as if it couldn't get any better, I plan to take a long bubble bath once the kiddos are in bed for the night. Perfect!
I also called Juli today, my favorite little hairdresser. Evan's Christmas party is on the 1st, and as I've only been a member of the short hair squad for a limited time, I decided to let her do my hair earlier in the day so that it will look festive and fun that night. Apparently it will be a full night - cocktail hour, dinner and dessert, and then dancing after. I can't wait, it will be so much fun to have a night out on the town with my handsome husband as my escort. I love when I look at him and still feel that little flutter as I realize what an attractive man I'm married to.
My bible study today was on self control, and this whole next week's worth of study promises to be good, so perhaps a post on that tomorrow. I think self control is a good lesson for me...evidenced in the fact that I ate the last four chocolate oreos while the kids were asleep.
Cheers to you on this chilly day!
