Back to the Grind

After 3 weeks off together Kyle finally is headed back to work today. Let me just say that I love him to pieces but it sure is nice to have some alone time haha. My day will be filled with cleaning and organizing our house, it needs it desperately.

Today I also start 3 more classes for school. I have really enjoyed my experiences so far. I just got my grades from my last two classes and I'm thrilled with how I have done so far:


I know the classes will only get harder but after being out of the academic loop for 10 years, I'm happy.

We didn't do much over the weekend but we did venture out to spend some gift cards we got for Christmas. I ended up getting this at Target:


Baths are much more enjoyable now since I don't have to hold my magazine or book. :)

We did have a special birthday over the weekend. Our precious Emma turned 10 years old. I have had her since she was 4 weeks old and I couldn't imagine our lives without her.




I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

  7. I need a bath shelf thing. Need.
    It was slow goings for Chris this morning heading back to work. He is the kind of person who needs the activity and stimulation though so I think he was actually pleased :D
