since i was heading out of town for part of this week, i made sure to get some one-on-one time with the kids this week.  lily chose sushi for our dinner date!

some days you just need a drink.  my drink of choice was cream soda as i sat in the car, playing with posies, waiting for the kids to get out of school.

since i was off to blissdom this week, i wanted to get all the homeschooling done before i left so sean didn’t have to do it on his own.  well, after a few hours of hitting it hard at home, we were all going a bit stir crazy.  so we packed up our books, went out for lunch and then sat by the creek for a couple hours to get more done.

i listed another huge batch of bunting tuesday night and it was all sold within an hour!  don’t worry, i’m working on more… constantly, it seems!

we’ve had a crazy week and have eaten out more times than i’d like to admit.  we went to firestone grill where the walls are covered in big screens showing like 10 games at a time.  while silas was zoned out watching a baseball game, i pulled him onto my lap for a good long snuggle!

i justified this because i ate salad for dinner.  and fries.  and onion rings.


ok, thats it for this week!  i had to write this post tuesday night since i left for blissdom wednesday.
