Hooray! We survived the first week back work/school/daycare/routine! Monday was rough for me - Carolina was crabby for a good portion of the week - we were all exhausted - but we made it! And honestly it already feels like we're back on track, except for the kids constantly singing Christmas songs :)
Carolina and I are starting a little Sunday night tradition of going to Walmart together for the weekly shop - it's so fast and easy, I love our Walmart. She helps me get the things on my list and we talk and take our time together, she's very excited when I ask her if she wants to go with me.
Liam and I have been playing a lot of Qwirkle together and bows and arrows - now that he has two, we see who can shoot each other the most :) We have been trying to have more relaxing-together evenings... working on those 2015 goals! Speaking of, I also only went to Target once all week! However I already have to go again to return somethings and get a few more things, and I'll probably go again on the weekend, because I'll be a single parent and Target is the best for getting everybody out of the house. Todd is going to San Antonio with his dad and brother for a guy's trip to see some Spurs games and eat a bunch of delicious food - lucky guy!
Oh, here are some random pictures from the rest of Christmas break...
|She calls this game "Two Mommies" HAHAHA|
|Who doesn't need to just veg on the couch with a blanket and pillow for a while?|
|Their favorite, Mexican restaurants (any will do pretty much) - but they are being a little too mischievious here|
I've had a great weekend, and hate to see it go, but I know once it begins I'll be too busy to be sad about it! Todd and I went on a date with Coe and Stephanie, we went to Twigs again and saw The Imitation Game which was a really great movie, then came back to our house and played games until 3 am - 'cause we had no kids! The next day we were pretty tired, but after picking up the kids and doing a few things in Boise (the new Guru Donuts brick-and-morter is open!) - I literally laid on the couch and/or vegged for the whole rest of the day and it. felt. amazing.
|The weather has been inversiony - but not too cold for a walk in BoDo|
