Dad and Jim decided at 10:30 at night to go searching for sleds at Walmart. The next morning the snow was still here and so Jim took the kids to a nearby school to go sliding for their second time
I'm telling you...this week has been like a family vacation! We have taken so many mini-trips and had so much fun. It's been so awesome watching my kids, and even my husband, have so many firsts.
And Saturday didn't only start well, with the snow and sliding, but ended well because I got to go on a date with my husband! Yes, me and Jim were ALONE for like four hours!! We left the kids with Mom, Dad and Melissa and Jim and I went Christmas shopping. It was great! I know that isn't everyone's idea of a date...but we have not been alone since July! We'll take what we can get. We did also go to Olive Garden for lunch where I got totally inebriated on one glass of red wine. Go me....SOOOO wild!! haha It was wonderful!
The night ended with a million, or maybe it was only six or seven, games of Skip Bo with Mom and Melissa. So fun!...well, it is when I'm winning! Me, competitive? NOOO!
Today Melissa left to go back to Austin. Mom and Dad left to drive up to Wyoming for a couple of days. And Jimmy went back to work. I'm sad and lonely with my quiet house. But my heart is overflowing with all of the love and laughter I received in the last week...that should keep me going for a little while at least.
