family fun

I was really annoyed to not have a car (blown head gasket on my car) for most of a week and feeling very home bound and lonely. I had spent many hours on the telephone, but it just wasn't cutting it. So, Thursday night, after we got kids into jamas, Hubby and I decided to head to Barnes & Noble for a little browsing and some hot chocolate at the cafe. It was actually quite a fun experience, even with 2 semi-tired children. The girls and I looked at magazines (OK, B & I looked at magazines while K climbed on the stepstool and tried to hang from every possible surface) while Hubby browsed.

We stopped at the cafe and got Godiva hot cocoa. YUMMM!!! Totally rich and fattening. Exceedingly delicious. The gal gave us a couple sample cups and we shared with the girls. They were so cute! I'm sure the fellow patrons thought we were crazy filling our children up with coffee at 8:30pm. Oh, well. It was a really fun treat.

These were in the car on the way home. The hot chocolate was gone, but I had refilled the cups with water to mix with the dregs of the chocolate. Who would have known? The girls were still thrilled--cheap dates, I guess. :)

so much going on....

In the last month, we've listed our house on the market, sold our house, found a new house, moved in, done all the fixes on our old house and now we're getting ready to close on the old house. WOOHOO!! Thursday is the day! Not to mention that we've done all this with a pregnant wife/mommy. Yeah, not so much fun.

I have, however, turned that glorious corner from 1st trimester to 2nd trimester. Thankfully, I'm now enjoying feeling SO much better and having much more energy. Afternoon naps are no longer necessary every. single. day. I can usually make it a day in between. usually. :)

All this to say that I'm still here. Alive and kicking. Up to my ears in switching everything over and unpacking and putting away. I'm still here. I'll be back soon.
