Love Is In The Air! And Other Stuff.

Happy week after Valentines Day! I have been working on this post since Saturday. Don't get your hopes up, it's not because it is going to be super-cool, just because I was busy and never finished it. I had a great Valentine's day, though. Saturday my wonderful husband gave me the best gift ever, the chance to sleep in! Well, I think the best gift ever might be a winning lotto ticket, but sleeping in is definitely in the top five. We went cheap for gifts this year, since we are broke. We never do much, Marty always gives me chocolate and flowers, and we do cards. This year I decided I would rather have a pretty potted flower that I can keep in the windowsill of my kitchen and will last a while. I don't know what kind it is, but it had cute little orange flowers and I love it!

Mom and Wayne offered to come watch the kiddos so we could get out for a bit between Drew's feedings. We went just down the road to Bob's Burger and Brew ( I know, romantic right?) since it was close and we figured it would not be a huge wait. The food was good, and it was nice to be out alone. We decided that Marty could not talk about work or fantasy sports, and I could not talk about the kids. So we sat in silence for a while and decided we needed to spend more time together, since there was nothing else to talk about. Pretty pathetic, huh?

Yesterday we went to church for the first time since Drew was born. I was so excited! We go to a huge church with 4,000 people in weekly attendance. The whole family goes there so we all sit together. Yesterday everyone in the family, for one reason or another was not there. Marty was ushering, so Drew and I sat by ourselves. When we were greeting each other, a nice lady saw Drew and said, "What a cute baby. How old is he?" "Six weeks tomorrow!" "Oh, good for you for making it here!" I stopped myself from saying, "lady, you have no idea!" and I just smiled at her instead.

After church we went to Target, then home. That's it, church, Target, home. And we took kids in and out of car seats 24 times. That puts a whole new spin on running a couple of quick errands! Anywhoo, after we got home we put the boys down for a nap in our room and I finished painting the twins' bedroom! Yee-ha! I still have a little finishing work to do on it, but for the most part it is done. And-I think I have picked out the paint I want for the kitchen and living room, too. I had decided to spend my Christmas money on paint this year, since I look at these walls all day every day and white is depressing. I need pretty colors! I have no idea when I will be able to paint though, since spare time is not something I have in excess.

Well, my children are fighting, so I'd better sign off. Look for Not Me! Monday! coming later today!

I hate to paint, but if you need help, I will come and help paint to give you something pretty to look at during your busy days. Let me know!! Or I could help distract kids a little while you paint.
