It is amazing how a simple night out can be just what you need. Last night Chris and I went out to dinner with our friends the Browers and the Smiths. We went to Red Robin’s and had a great time! We shared stories, ate, and spent most of the night just laughing as we learned more about each other. I came home feeling like I could take anything on again, it is wonderful how a simple break from the normal and taking time out for yourself can rejuvenate ones spirit.
Today I feel like I can get so much accomplished. I woke up to a sale on Etsy, and I can’t wait to go and make more things for my store. The house is relatively clean, and I think I can squeeze some torch time in today in between loads of laundry. I really want to make the kids their worry stone hearts today. I have many already made, but I want their input on their own hearts, and if they want to brave the cold garage, I will even let them help make it! I really want it to be special for them, as I told some friends; I want it to be a tangible reminder of how much they are loved.
Later on tonight, I think we will go and rent a fun movie to watch with the kids, or just have a family game night with them. They have been good kids, and I think they deserve a reward and I think that kids need to be reminded that they are loved and appreciated just as much as their parents need to hear that as well.
