Happy Friday! Do you notice that the post right below this one is last week’s Weekly Wrap-Up? Yep, I took myself a little blogging break. I decided to take one on Monday. Yeah, I’m impulsive like that.
It’s been an enjoyable week. Brian was off Monday, so we took the day off of school and enjoyed a nice day together as a family for Valentine’s Day. We took our annual trip to a local Japanese steakhouse…one of those where they cook the food in front of you. Yum!
Brianna still had to do her Spanish class, but after that the weather was so nice we took off to a local park to do some biking and running. I never thought I’d see the day when I’d say that I enjoy running. It’s amazing what taking control of your health can do.
Tuesday we decided to take a “life skills” day since we’d only been home long enough to “dump and run” for a few days thanks to a wonderful marriage conference for Brian and I the weekend before (loved it!) and taking off on Monday. We got the house in order and laundry caught up while my kids learned skills such as: organization, following direction, interpersonal relationships, delegation, working with a deadline, and, of course, basic life skills associated with managing a home.
The rest of the week was back to the books with our daily, run-of-the-mill school stuff. Oh! We finally got mold to grow! Of course, it was on the fresh bakery bread I bought to have with supper one night. We didn’t eat the meal when I’d planned and I forgot to put the bread in the freezer. It’s full of lots of lovely mold now and we’ll be looking at it under the microscope either later tonight or tomorrow.
It’s supposed to be a beautiful weekend, so we’re hoping to get out to some more biking and running trails before the weekend is over. Now, I’m off to see if I can get fitted for a good pair of running shoes to see if that will help my knees. Have a great weekend!
