And, I'm happy to say that this has been a much better week than I've had in a long time. Thank you for the encouraging comments/e-mails I received. You'll never know how much they meant to me.
In some other news from this week....
- I got a call out of the blue from an old friend I haven't seen or even talked to in probably over 11 years. We've exchanged Christmas cards each year but that's the extent to which we've stayed in touch. She currently lives in Alabama but she was in town this week and wanted to know if we could get together.
So on Tuesday night she and I met up for a couple hours. It was great to see her again
- Yesterday afternoon I took the 3 big boys to see Cars 2. Even though Charlie fell asleep in the middle of it and we paid entirely too much for popcorn and 1 drink to share, it was a blast. Who knew Cars could be an action flick? And Mater got to be a spy!
My only hesitation with the movie...as exciting as it was...is this - Is it really necessary to incorporate guns, bombs, chase scenes, spy themes, and the word 'kill' (used multiple times) into a kid's movie? I'm curious if anyone else saw it and what they thought.
- My garden is starting to produce! And, I'm so proud of myself that I've actually kept on top of the weeds! We've had some fresh yellow beans, green beans, zucchini, onions, and tomatoes so far. And, my mom sent over 2 baskets of green beans from her garden which I froze. I put about 15 quarts in my freezer. They boys actually enjoyed helping!
- We've had beautiful weather this week...perfect weather really. While I haven't accomplished a whole lot inside we have been enjoying being outside.
