Saturday- Happy Valentine’s Day! For Valentines Day this year we did the traditional at home surf and turf meal. We don’t like fighting the crowds at restaurants so several years ago we decided to just do it up special at home. Our meal this year consisted of steak with crab sauce, crab legs, salad, baked potatoes, heart jigglers, chocolate dipped marshmallow fondue, and strawberry shortcake.
Sunday- After church we went out to the breakfast buffet at the Sawmill Inn before taking Zach out to Ski Gull for the Scout Ski Day.
Monday- Scouts tonight had a change of course since the person who was going to work on knife safety with the kids forgot he was supposed to be there so we worked on basic scout skills instead. We realized the boys REALLY have to brush up on their knots.
Tuesday- We had my mom’s birthday party tonight. It was a fun evening with the parents and grandparents.
Wednesday- I’m finding my sleep schedule is still screwed up from the overnighters I did a few nights back and I am still very tired. Jeff, Zach and I did take some time to play Deal or No Deal though and after Zach crashed on the sofa I read for a while.
Thursday- We had Zach’s 9th grade parent orientation/career planning meeting tonight. It’s amazing the amount of things they have to keep in mind when choosing their classes for 9th grade so they will align with their goals and career choices for when they graduate. No wonder kids are so stressed out these days!
Friday- Enjoyed the beauty of the snow falling down and already wishing it was gone. I continued to get things together for my Mardis Gras party tomorrow night. It should be a good time. Now if I can only find some Zydeco music around here…
