This weekend feels like it has been a long time in coming.
It's nearly midnight and I have laundry to do if I want to have something nice to wear tomorrow. Gotta love that! It just seems like everything I feel like or like to wear is dirty.
M2 finally returned home tonight. We went to dinner with my friend, Andrew, and one of his friends to celebrate the end of bar exam madness. I haven't been to the bar and grill where we ate in a long time. It is one of my favorite old haunts and it was fun to see some of the changes, including some pretty posh new bathrooms!
We have a busy weekend complete with some more days with Neville (easy peasy), open gym at the girls' gymnastics place (where I want to re-enroll them) and a birthday party tomorrow afternoon.
Work is winding down for one of my contracts and that's sad in some ways. I have a ton to do in the next week to be ready to call it a summer, though. Then, it will be gearing up for fall semester, which starts in a couple weeks.
I had a life-changing moment at dinner tonight. My friend, Andrew, who used to work at Williams-Sonoma told me that my Le Creuset cookware that has the enameled insides is dishwasher safe. Not sure how I ever missed this little gem, but I did. This will definitely impact my life for the better! I was so excited about it, I even told Hubs about it during our IM tonight.
Speaking of IM, it kicked him off tonight (without telling me) and he became aggravated enough to go find a phone and call home. It was so good to hear his voice. Sometimes, I feel like I can do this deployment with my eyes closed...just keep plowing forward. Other times, like tonight, I just want to open my eyes and see my husband standing in the living room asking me if I'm about done blogging so we can go to bed.
I am a little surprised it will be August in a few minutes. Someday, I'll be surprised that it's almost spring and time for him to be home.
Okay. Closing my eyes again.
