Would You Like Some Cheese With That Whine?

Sorry about that last post.  Believe it or not there are 'weak' days and I believe that was one of them... and today may have been one too.  I missed my boys today.  Normally when they are gone I keep myself extremely occupied with people or an event that I don't recognize they are gone until about Monday morning.

I woke up Saturday morning; and realized they were gone.  It was to be a LOOOOOOOOOOONG weekend.

I did get a lot accomplished today and even found 30 minutes to wander aimlessly around Target (My Happy Place) and not buy anything other than a $30 DVD player (because Carson stepped on our other one this past week).

Nathaniel has been into super heros (The Avengers Movie especially) right now and he has to tell me all about them every day on the tv.  I am not a huge fan of occupying their time in front of the TV, but as single parenting goes-- when I have to fold a load (or 6) of laundry, sometimes the TV is my best friend to distract them.  

 I want to say thank you to all of my friends and family who have been praying for Holly, Ella and Gary over the past few days.  Gary was in a terrible tractor accident earlier in the week and is one lucky guy.  He will be coming home tomorrow and the road to recovery could be hard.  He is SUCH a task-oriented guy, it will be hard for him to sit still.   Please pray that he gives his body time to heal and that Holly rests when she is able-- she is the mother to a 3 month old angel and is just learning the ropes of motherhood as well as caring for Gary! 

Halloween decor is put away and the Turkey Day stuff has made it's way to the top of the basement stairs.  Is it wrong that I want to bypass Thanksgiving and just put up my Christmas Stuff?  I kinda want to put up the outside Christmas lights tomorrow.  I hope it's nice out-- and I will.   I wasn't really in a super Christmas-y mood last year so WATCH OUT, it could get insane around here.  

Next weekend the boys and I are having our Fall Pictures taken by my good friend-- who is A-MAZ-ING with a camera.  She scouted out a location just for us today-- super pumped to see how things go!

That's it for now.
