This weekend flew by as usual with play dates for the kids, church and today a visit with my family at my sisters. This was the gathering that was supposed to take place as our Christmas, but because of sick kids, in all the families, and ice storms was put off for a month. We wondered if we'd make it today with the sub zero temps and little Taters having Croup, but "WE DID IT!". I think the next get together with all of us will be set for a warmer time. We all ate too much, especially desert, the kids were wild and tried breaking in (or down) their Aunt and Uncle's house. It was really fun to watch them all play together. We don't have the chance to get together often all at once, but they all hugged, loved, shoved, grabbed from, and played as if we see them every weekend. It was noisy, but a joyful noise. Trucks vroomed, and screeched, (and "bammed" walls, sorry E) guitars played and I think the race track path was well worn in, maybe even some Tonka land speed records were broken. Over all a good day.
Now we prepare for a short week back to school since we're observing MLK Jr. Day. According to Ticklebug since it's called a "holiday" there Must be some sort of family celebration involved. She asked tonight at bedtime what we"ll do to celebrate the "Holiday" tomorrow. I'll have to think about that one...?
Also time to get back at the workout...Someone the other day said "Only 10 weeks till spring break" SHHHHHHHH...I'm still enjoying the holiday treats! On that note though a friend shared a quote with me...
"Self discipline is not a battle against self,
it is a battle to strengthen self".
