Just a brief post tonight - it's late, and it's been a busy day!
We recently celebrated Mister J's birthday, so I owe you a post about that. And I wrapped up my 5K training with a run on Saturday morning. Yes, both of those happened in the same weekend. Also, while planning for said Very Busy Weekend, I decided that the front room (formerly the kid office, and originally intended for a dining room), needed to be painted before we put up the Christmas tree. Does the 'birthday and then paint a room' thing sound familiar?
I'm also planning to post about some neat things we've done with the kids during this 'season of giving' - things that I hope we will continue throughout the year. And - there's a giveaway coming really soon! (As excited as I want everyone to be, it's limited to locals only - sorry! But it'll be part of a really neat post I have about something we did with the kids - so please read anyway!) (ETA neat thing #1 and neat thing #2/giveaway)
And, besides the promised blog posts, what does this week hold? Well, tonight we had to pick up the last boxes of Boy Scout Popcorn and go to the official "end of 5K training" celebration. Tomorrow my boys will be going to a skating party with the Cub Scouts. I'll also be shopping around for new light fixtures tomorrow and picking up a paint roller (as in purchasing, and as in using...). Oh, and it's dance day for my sweet girl. Wednesday - Christmas get-together. Thursday - I'm going to the launch party for this cool blog! And Mister J has a school project due on Friday. After that - rest? I'm committed to spending the weekend with my family. Just the four of us, nothing scheduled. It's COLD here this week, so maybe we'll just snuggle up on the couch and watch movies/nap. That would be nice, eh? Note to self: find a good crock-pot recipe before your next grocery run (which comes right after you clean out the fridge...).
Have a great week, everyone!
