Good Days

The last couple of days the boys have been sleeping until almost 7am. It's awesome. Except for the rush to get to school on M&W. The wii fit says I sleep too much, but I think it's an idiot. I am not thrilled with the sass it gives me, but Geoff and it have a nice relationship.

Bible study starts up again tonight. I'm happy to move off Thursday mornings, since it saves me money. Plus next year Elijah will be in school on Thursday mornings. We are studying the book of Esther, which I've read, but it will be interesting to read about it with Beth Moore's perspective.

The weather has turned back to winter the last few days, which makes me sad. Gimme temps in the 50s!

Wish there was more I could tell you. Just being a mom/wife and watching some tv. Oh yeah, and trying to get to the gym at least 3 days a week. The last two weekends we've had friends come over for dinner, and it's been lovely. And you'd be surprised that picky eater Melissa is ever expanding her palate. Though I'm probably still the pickiest eater you know (or so I hear all the time).

I'll close with a quote from Psych. That show rocks!

Juliet: Lassiter is my partner. How would you feel if something happened to Gus?
Shawn: Depends entirely on what happened to him. I mean, if he wakes up one day and he's Howard Jones, I'm like, "Dude, things can only get better."

Off By Two Weeks

Apparently, there is a whole day, sometimes a week, devoted to de-lurking. And it was two weeks ago.

Oops.

So now I ask you post a comment, let me know someone still reads this (besides Cate, Kelly & Sharon!)

Thanks friends.

Ack!

I'm so behind on my blogging, and so unmotivated to do it. :)

I had a lovely birthday. I had waffles and bacon for breakfast, a relaxing afternoon, and one of the most delicious dinners ever! We went to the Wine Experience Cafe at Southlands. Highly recommend it to people looking for a quiet, romantic evening.

I had:
Angus Beef Shell Steak, Boursin Potato Gratin, Cognac Green Peppercorn Jus

Geoff had:
Iron Skillet Roasted Duck Breast, Maple Cider Gastrique, Sweet Potato Apple Hash

We sampled the trio of olive oil with olive bread, and for dessert...
Bittersweet chocolate dulce de leche bread pudding, cappucino gelato

Yum-o! I really really hope the restaurant continues to succeed, because it's a gem. And the owner (who served us) was great.

Today I had the joy of visiting my favorite place in the whole world, the DMV. (I'm being sarcastic) I hate that #1. they didn't give me the right information the LAST time I was turned away. So once AGAIN I didn't have the right papers. #2. They don't ever say I'm sorry. It's like I'm not a person to them, I'm a number.

Sorry, I'm gonna get over. I don't want to dwell on the negative. It all worked out in the end, now I have 2 years before I have to go back and deal with their crap.

I'm working on planning a vacation for 2010, so most of my thoughts are on that. I'll let you know soon what comes of that.

I'm gonna go, sign off. I'll close with a quote from Girls Just Want To Have Fun.

Lynne: He's a boy and he's alive, what's there to hate?

Is It Spring Yet?

We've had a mild winter, and yet I'm still yearning for spring to get here. We haven't had much snow, but I'm longing to see green again.

New Year's Eve, we watched the Survivorman marathon on Discovery and drank champagne. Struggled to stay awake until midnight, then fell asleep. We're such party animals! New Year's day our friend Cristina came over for a ham dinner. The boys loved it, someone new to play with! Elijah loves Cristina & her "messy hair".

Yes, I set some resolutions. Lose weight (I have a goal in mind), read more, and learn something new. Throw in there, forgive more and love sinners. No biggie, right?

January is gonna be a good time for new tv. Psych, Burn Notice, & Lost are all coming back. Sadly Eli Stone may be gone for good. I"m holding onto hope ABC will run the last of the episodes they shot this summer. I think ABC is stupid for letting it go. Do we really need more reality tv?

I'm not really going to say much on the upcoming award season. They nominate the same old shows every year, kiss the same people's butts. I've openly professed that I think Tina Fey is OVERRATED! Whatever. As long as Slumdog Millionaire gets some recognition, I'll be pleased.

I watch a LOT of children's programming, so I'll close with a quote from Peep And The Big Wide World.

Chirp: "A talking log! Oh log, I'm such a big fan of the work that you and the trees are doing for us birds."
