Some pictures you won't see below, but that I should have gotten, are of the storage area in our basement. Sorting through nine years' worth of stuff in there was my goal for this weekend, and I'm fairly impressed with myself that I stuck with it. Unearthed some treasures (letters I wrote Darrin while we lived apart during college) and created quite the pile for Goodwill and Best Buy (which I learned recycles most small electronics). Hopefully next weekend I'll tackle another room (or two!) in my effort to purge and organize in the new year.
Here's what else happened this week:
|Confession: this actually happened last week, but I forgot to pull the image from Darrin's cell. Ian earned his first stripe on his ju jit su belt thanks to the great report card he brought home.|
|The picture on the left was the temp on Monday when I woke up. The image on the right is on Sunday night. Quite a temp change in a week, and that doesn't take into account how cold it felt like on Monday.|
|The kids killing time before Friday night game night playing a friendly game of catch.|
|The picture quality on this isn't great, but the sandwich sure was yummy. Trying a new recipe each week. This week was an Italian Beef Sandwich which cooked in my crock pot all day.|
This happened on Saturday, too. Annaliese LOVES her jammies that look like a princess dress, and is always dancing in them. Usually she just spins by herself (and sings songs from Frozen at the top of her lungs), but this time she convinced Ian to dance with her.
