Day 13: This Week

Well, it's just now Wednesday so the week isn't over yet. So I'll just tell you what we have been up to in the last 7 days.

We put up Halloween decorations. Although that was earlier last week. I got some mums to put on the front porch. We have three jack-o-lanterns in front of the house and then two blow up type decorations. I think it looks nice all around. I am not a huge decorator for Halloween, but the kids like it and I guess that is all that matters. We also went shopping for costumes. Jon Kent will be Mario and Nathan will be Luigi from the Mario Brothers. Zoey is a Princess Butterfly. They all three look adorable, if I do say so myself. Pictures will have to wait though until the big night!

My daddy came in for a visit over the weekend. He did some projects with Kent in the backyard. Fixing the fence and building a shed. We are getting a puppy in our very near future, so we are trying to get the backyard ready for that.

While my daddy was in town, Kent and I got a date night. We went to see the movie "The Social Network". We also did some Christmas shopping and made a stop at Starbucks. We enjoyed our night out. Daddy took the kids to Wal-Mart to pick out a toy and then on to McDonald's for supper. I was told they had a blast. They were all asleep by the time Kent and I got back home.

Monday, Kent had off for Columbus Day. The kids still had to go to school though. Once they were off to school and my daddy left to head back home I cleaned. And cleaned. And then took a night long run/walk. I ended up running around 2 miles and walking 2 miles. It was nice.

Yesterday was a lazy day. I stayed in my pajamas for most of it and once the kids were home from school we just lounged around. Kent and the boys played video games some and we also played outside before bedtime.

As for today.. same ole same ole. Get up, take one kid to school, come home, play, do laundry, take another kid to school, fix lunch, put the last kid down for a nap, do housework or whatever needs doing, get last kid dressed and then go get two kids from school. Now, I am fixing to start supper and finish up homework with the kids. Then it will be time for church. Then the mad dash home to get the kids ready for bed.

See, and you thought I just sat around all day and watched soaps!

Oh and don't get a cocker spaniel....they're VERY,VERY,VERY hard to train and not great with small children....word to the wise, our mistake, but we're working to make him a good family dog.
