My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

week behind, week ahead....

anyone have one of those days?

yeah, we did yesterday. It started off great! After dropping Sugars off at preschool I had a wonderful coffee date with a group of Moms from church/preschool. Then the day slid right down a muddy hill into a pile of poop.

Oh well, today is another day, right?

I've been off work for the last 6 nights and have enjoyed doing some different things with the kids.

One of the things I did was to finally take them to the Heard Museum.

Which I am TRYING to upload pictures from. I guess that'll have to be a different post because they're not loading this morning. The kids and I had a lot of fun and it's one more thing crossed off my "places to go" list!

Sonshine can't wait to go back!

Now, as for my goals for the week

in the fitness department, I didn't make my 20 mile goal.

But I rode the bike for 11.15 miles on Friday night, then Saturday at the Heard Museum we went for a mile long hike which was big fun! So I'd say I made good progress.

My other goals were:
6) make cover for my new stethoscope. it's about 4 inches longer than my old one so the old cover ain't quite cutting the mustard. done! :-)

5) finish marking the quilt. more progress made, but not finished.

3) make meatloaf. it's been too hot to cook during the day and I haven't made meatloaf in forever. Plus it's one of my hubby's favorite meals so I thought I'd make it overnight when I'm off. done! it was soooo yummy!!!

This week I work Wed, Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon, and Tues.

my only goal for the week will be to survive working so many days in a row without losing my religion.

how about you? any goals for the week??

I have about 4 stethoscope covers waiting for me to do the buttonholes and finish them off. I always get stalled at the buttonholes.

My only goal for the week is to get through it with less stress than I've had for the past several. So far, so good but I'm not getting much of anything else done at all!

Well, since I had no goals this week I find I'm right on course. ;) Wishing you well and hoping you have a grand weekend! Cathy

Great idea to cook at night! Everyone loves next-day meatloaf :)

That quilt in the photo is GORGEOUS!

Every little bit of exercise counts! Keep up the good work :)
