I made it!

I made it through 7 straight days of closing the store...whew! I am exhausted! I had the day off yesterday and I have today off too. I needed both days just to recover. My legs are so sore. I have had a bit of indigestion/stomachache the past couple of days, probably from all the candy I've been scarfing down--not good!

Aaron is out of town this week at Kennedy Space Center. He's helping install one of their payloads on the shuttle that's going up in February (I think that's when it is, anyway). He gets to be in the shuttle and everything--how freakin' cool! My husband is in something that is going up in space in a couple of months--I just hope it doesn't decide to take off early on its own with him in it. Now that's a TDY I would not be prepared for! HA HA HA! He'll be back on Friday.

Aaron's mom and stepdad are coming around next Tuesday to spend Thanksgiving with us. I have to work on Thanksgiving day but I have Wednesday and Friday off, so we are doing Thanksgiving on Wednesday and having leftovers the rest of the week! Woo hoo!

Back to the grind

I had such a wonderful weekend! Three days off with my 2 favorite guys! We had a fun family weekend playing at the park, taking naps, shopping, taking family portraits, watching football. It was a great time. We went to BJ's yesterday to watch the Colts-Pats game (since someone at CBS in Houston thought it would be a good idea to play the Texans-Raiders game instead--who cares!?!) We were going for the Colts, but it is still really hard to go against the team that our beloved Wes Welker plays for. So even though I am a Peyton Manning fan, I wasn't overly upset when the Colts lost. We just had a good time watching the game. We brought the portable DVD player in case Trent got bored with the game. He made it through the first half of the game before we had to pull out the DVD player. He's such a good boy. Saturday night we went to have our family pictures taken and he was a perfect little model! We got some great shots taken and I can't wait to get our order in! It will take about 2 weeks for them to be ready to pick up. We didn't order too many because I want to buy the CD of our session so I can get some printed for a lot cheaper!

I have to go back to work today and I'll be closing every night for the rest of the week. Aaron and Trent are going to Round Rock this weekend to watch the Tech-UT game with the Freemans and the Geveckers. I wish I could go but I have to work all weekend. They weren't going to go at first, but I urged Aaron to go ahead and go. Otherwise he'll just be at home watching the game by himself, and that's no fun! They will also be celebrating Laura's and Conly's birthdays which are Wednesday and Sunday. I'm sad I will miss being with them on their birthdays but at least my family will be represented. I'll just have to send my love with Aaron and Trent!
