Well, it was finally a calm weekend around here. Saturday night was our monthly “Date Night”. E, our sitter came over at 7 pm Saturday night, the kids were already in their cribs and pretty much crashed out since they took another afternoon nap strike. We decided that we would go to the same mexican restaurant that we went to last month. I love this place. It is small, but they are so nice and the food is the best mexican food I have had in years.
I ordered the enchilladas in red pepper sauce. It came with rice and beans. Well, my eyes were much bigger than my stomach and I couldn’t finish my dinner….but it was amazing. The hubby had tostadas and managed to chip yet another tooth….poor guy….he goes back to the dentist on Wednesday.
After supper, we went to the firehouse for “dance night”. We haven’t been out for a dance night in ages….since September…..and we had a nice time. Several of our friends were there and everyone seemed to be a good mood. I was very well behaved…we got home at midnight to find that the kids had slept right through for E. I keep telling her that one of these nights, the kids will act up and she will have her hands full. But so far, they have been angels for her.
Yesterday, we stayed in. It was a quiet day. I made pumpkin muffins as a snack for me and the kids. I also put a roast in the crock pot…..I made homemade gravy and the hubby loved it. I have to admit it was pretty tasty…..Note: secret ingredients included can of au jus, montreal steak seasoning and some emerils…….
Daniel’s 4th molar is ALMOST through……I sure wish it would just get here so the little guy could get some sleep. He was up 3 times last night….screaming bloddy murder.
And this morning, the kids were up at 6:30. I brought them down, fed them and put them in baby jail. At 8:30, I attempted to do my namaste yoga routine while watching fitTV. Well, it is really hard to concentrate on your poses and breathing when your daughter is beating the crap put of your son. After the yoga show was over, there was a “boot camp” workout…..and Melissa decided that she would join right in. She stood in her toy box and had her arms going like you wouldn’t believe. It was adorable.
So things here are settling down. Thank God…..
I cancelled Daniel’s allergist appointment as I just cannot fathom torturing my son with skin tests. We are going to hold off on that as long as possible.
I promise that I will catch up reading everyone’s blogs….
I just wanted to thank you all for your kind words of support. The hugs, well wishes and prayers are working……
