God must have realized I was reaching the end of my rope last week and sent a wonderful respite this weekend! :)
Friday night: The family who runs our favorite local restaurant the next city over opened up another restaurant nearby. They bought a locally historic building which most recently housed a fancy restaurant - the one at which DaHubby and I were married! So, with cash in hand (thank you Dave Ramsey) and with the Vikings and I sharing a large combo meal (LOL), we four had a wonderful dinner out!
Saturday: While DaHubby went to his morning class, the Vikings and I ran some errands. When he arrived home from school, we all jumped in the van with packed lunches and headed to Kalamazoo! We went to the Air Zoo which is one of DaHubby's favorites. The kids have been there before but it's been about two years.
Then, an auntie/uncle combo watched the Vikings that evening so DaHubby and I had some time alone!
Sunday: We all were able to be at church. DaHubby's been using Sunday morning with me and the Vikings gone to get some homework done in peace and quiet. He's been sorely missed by all (most of all ME) but I supported his decision. He was able to go yesterday and then played 3-4 songs with the praise and worship team during prayer/altar call at the end of service which brought the place to its feet! *big smile*
Then, DaGrandparents made up for some lost time since dealing with my MIL's knee replacement and took the kids for the afternoon! More alone time with DaHubby! *bigger smile*
Finally, we all attended evening service as well and all were pleased to see DaHubby opening service with a few songs.
Other than the colds it appears the Vikings pick up at some point, a nearly perfect weekend!
