Hello and YAY Happy Friday to ya too! Not that the weekend is going to be any less busy for me, but it's still the weekend right?! LOL! The kids have off school today and they're off busy with friends, which is good for me so I can try and get a lot of projects done! Although Riley is having 2 boys spend the night so that means it will be LOUD--but they'll stay down in our finished basement most of the time! Then the rest of the weekend is family time with birthday parties, some shopping and gardening. We're at a point as a family that we have to schedule family time now, hee hee---the kids have more social activities now that they're older. We've always been such a "4-pack" and done everything together, all the time. Hubby and I never really had to many dates the first 10 years of marriage when we had kids--we never had babysitters very often other than my parents and occasionally a family friend. We just always had the kids with us--a lot of times we had anniversary dinners with them too, LOL! And now that they're older they can stay home by themselves or they're off with friends which means hubby and I get date night once a week--what a revelation and it's wonderful I must say. Sometimes we'll just grab a bite to eat late in the evening or like tomorrow night we'll see a movie and have dinner (Date Night with Tina Fey). It's good to have that time and catch up again--once the kids are gone out of the house it will just be us, so it's good to keep that part of relationship alive & well! If I had to do it over again, I would add more babysitters over the years but that's said and done and we all live & learn, right?!
