Quiet Friday Night

Well, it is 9:00 P.M., the kids are in bed, the house is pretty straight, there is laundry to be folded and I am trying to decide if I am going to begin my kitchen project (cleaning out every drawer and cabinet). It is very quiet and kind of boring which can only mean one thing...Chris is out of town. He went to Louisiana this weekend to meet with some clients and then play in a golf tournament. He has played golf only a couple of times in his life. So needless to say we are praying for rain tomorrow. He will do great no matter rain or shine. He loves people and can talk to ANYONE!!!!!!! I am really kind of dreading going to bed tonight. It's kind of strange that for 26 years I slept in a bed by myself and now I can't sleep when I am by myself. I love rolling over and seeing him there.

So, I'm sitting in my chair, drinking my Vanilla diet coke (easy ice) and watching HGTV. Despite Chris being gone today we have had a good day. I got my haircut and then was able to take Starbuck's to my friend and spend some time talking and laughing with her. I went and picked up my kids at my Mom's and then headed home. When we got home Christopher was still complaining about his head hurting from this morning. I gave him some Tylenol and saw we were almost out. Kaityn is cutting teeth so I gave her some Tylenol and saw we were almost out of that as well. I decided to go get some Tylenol tonight rather than in the middle of the night. So, the five of us loaded up in our (as Chris calls it) SUVan or VanUV and headed to Target, don't you just love that place. I loaded up on Tylenol for every age in our household and headed to Sonic for dinner (thanks Grana). We ate and I covered our front door with a sheet. No "wreath stalker" this time (read my December blog about the attack of the wreath if you don't know what I am talking about). The kids watched a movie and then headed to bed which leads me to where I am now...on the chair, drinking a vanilla diet coke...easy ice and watching HGTV.

I posted a picture of my hair (I know you are waiting on pins and needles) and then my new favorite picture of my family. They are great. Hope everyone has a great weekend and enjoys spending time with their families.

Cute hair cut! Did Casey do it? I hope she can do a perm for me when I come in to take of the kids! Mrs. Troop wants us to get together when I come in, do you think we can?
I love the picture of the kids on daddy's back! I hope Christopher's headache is okay. It is probably from all that imagination going on!
Love ya!

Cute hair Keli! You look like you've lost weight too!! I still can't get the last 10-12 pounds off...maybe next week when Jon's away I'll work on that! Sounds like you are doing okay without Chris...I always tackle projects, try to lose weight, stay up really late until I'm so tired I have to go to sleep and keep the house really clean when Jon's gone!
