We had a really nice weekend. Nothing crazy, but just enough action. One play date, one (dropoff!) birthday party, one lovely date night (dinner & a movie), one typical Sunday dinner (we had family over for takeout). On Saturday, Josh was at a conference all day and I tired the kids out at Young at Art (favorite kids’ museum even if it’s 40 minutes away!). Sunday I got some me-time, during which I did my long run and Josh took the kids to swim class.
I actually really really love our weekends at home. Also, 3.25 years into moving here I feel like we have real friends. We may be slower than most but it did finally happen – I feel relatively integrated into the community here. At times, anyway 🙂

75F (at 5:45

I’m eating with the kids most nights now. I used to wait until Josh got home but would end up starving and snacking on crap. I miss our dinners together, but it’s just too late for me.

The Simple Show – “Guilt-free holidays”
. Even though I do not share her religious traditions (she is Anglican), I love Tsh Oxenreider and I love her show. And this episode (as many do) made me feel cozy.
