Laundry weekend

Hey everyone! As you can see by the post, I spent most of my weekend doing laundry. Thankfully it was only most of it, and the rest was fun. I'm not the best with keeping up with things, so it's really my own fault. Yes I know I do spend a lot of time teaching and raising my wonderful kids, but I really have no excuse, because I do find ways to get other things done. Things that I don't need to do, but like to do (one of these activities may or may not be saving the land of Azeroth). :)

Okay so I was behind, and needed to do some catching up. Luckily Jeremy needed some time to himself to study, because he is way to distracting (you know... good looking man in the house... may get nothing done, sort of thing). So when I say behind I mean 3 hampers full and some on the floor. Okay yeah I know, that's really bad, but nothing left to do but get to work. I ended up doing 4 loads, which is awesome! I'm so glad they are done, and I'm so glad that it was only 4 (I have a HE washer and dryer). The day was mostly spent with me in the reading chair folding. My sons are awesome and they always put away their own clothes, so I didn't have to do that (I'm really not a perfectionist, so I really don't care where they put them, as long as it's away).

After all of the folding, and the last load is in the dryer, my husband comes up to me and says "You know it's been a while since we've had steak." (I love steak!, and I have nothing more to say about that) "Yes you are right honey, I can't remember the last time we had some." "Maybe we should go out to eat, you know at a steak house." (Yes the mention of going out to eat gets me excited!) (I love the thought of someone else cooking for me, for a change... even if I don't know them). "Are there any around here?" (yes we have a shortage of good restaurants around here). "Maybe, I'll go check."

We ended up going to a Long Horn in Columbia (my first time going), that was about 30 mins away. There was apparently a Texas Road house in Glen Burnie (really close to us), but it closed some years ago (would have been nice to try that too). Long horn was awesome! The kids menu was great, we had a really nice waitress, and it was quiet. Olivia was in a very good mood, and we had no troubles from her (babies are so unpredictable).

Sunday I picked up Nathaniel's birthday present! We are getting him a bike (his first one). I picked out a red huffy (from walmart). Nathaniel loves the color red, he would love to have red everything. Two of his favorite characters are red... Elmo and Iron Man :) His birthday is in 2 days, and he's going to be 5 (yeah wow). I'm still wondering where all of that time went? It's doesn't seem fair that time is pasting me so quickly. I know all of us parents must think that. We are forever missing those days of snuggling with our small beautiful babies. Laying them on our chest and watching them sleep, and thinking they are so perfect.

Okay I'll stop now before I start to cry. Thanks for reading, and I hope your weekend was awesome!
