A Night Away.....

I am so excited cause tomorrow night will be the first night away from the girls for something fun in 8 months. We have been away when we came here to find a house. It was such a stressful time that it was hard to enjoy. We have been so busy with the move etc... that I think the timing is great this time! Our church is doing a marriage conference and all the staff goes for free. We are staying at a Marriott just north of us in Plano. It will be a great time for us to get to know people a little better! I am really excited for some adult conversation. I remember in college as a cross-country runner we would get massages pretty often, but I always wanted to save mine for when I was really sore. I think I am looking at this time away as the same thing. We had a really long day today with Ellie. She wouldn't take a nap and fought going to sleep tonight. She was into the cabinets and wanting all the attention away from Anna. We went to the grocery store which was another melt-down. I think God knew I would need this break and time with Mike. I love my girls so much, but some time away will be great!
Anyways, I hope you all have a great weekend. I hope it's nice and cool with the leaves changing colors for you. We have yet to wear a long-sleeve shirt and Mike is still in shorts everyday. I don't think there's really going to be a fall. I got excited cause today it was in the mid 80's and it felt great. I forgot to post about something earlier this week. If you are looking for a good book to read you need to check out anything by Karen Kingsbury. She is an amazing author and I think I have now read atleast 30 of her books. She writes Christian-fiction and many of her new releases have been on the NY Times top 20 for several weeks in a row. However, I warn you to have some tissue ready in her newest release called "Summer". It is the second book in a series and Mike walked in the other night when I was finishing the book. I was sobbing it was so sad and he will never understand how I cry over a fictional book! You can check them out at your local library, but there is normally a long waiting list. She's the best and I can't wait for her next book to arrive soon! Have a great Friday I know we will enjoy it!

Hey Holly!

Enjoy your weekend... I completely understand what you mean about needing some time away... and adult conversation. I seem to be craving it lately... somehow knowing that when Josiah arrives, it will be even harder to come by! And of COURSE, I agree about Karen Kingsbury... and did the same thing with "Summer"... it was even harder being pregnant and reading it... I worried so much that something would happen with Josiah! Have you read her other new one, "Just beyond the clouds"? It's the sequel to "A thousand tomorrows"... it was good, but I think the first one I didn't cry with! She's got another one "Between Sundays" due at the beginning of Nov. How was the fair???
