Whew, it's been awhile!

Sorry it's been so long. Last week was busy and the weekend even busier!

Wednesday, my father came into town for a visit. We spent Thursday in Ann Arbor at Zingerman's enjoying a great lunch, good gelato and loving company. We took both boys with us and while Maxwell was a handful, they both did really well.

On the way home, I fell asleep in the car and realized I wasn't doing all that well. Maybe I was just getting a slight bug. By Friday morning, that bug had reared it's ugly head and I was full on sick. I took Payton to school and left within 5 minutes (that NEVER happens!) and was home and in bed.

Matt and my dad and Max went out to breakfast and my dad left. I'm sorry I didn't get to say goodbye, nor did we really get any one-on-one time this trip or time to talk. That was disappointing, but circumstances as they were, it just didn't happen.

I slept about 5 hours on Friday throughout the day and my Mother In Law came to get the boys for the weekend. I woke up just an hour before an event Matt and I were to be at and I was feeling queezy but good enough to go.

Matt and I arrived at the marriage seminar with plenty of time to spare and hung out waiting for friends to arrive. Turns out she's sick too (still is) and they weren't able to join us. It was an interesting seminar called "Men are like Waffles, Women are like Spaghetti". We spent half of Saturday at the seminar as well and enjoyed ourselves and learned a lot. The church hosting it did a great job!

Saturday afternoon, we met with a couple from our church to get appointed a "Mentor Couple". We're hoping to start meeting with someone within a month. They'll be friends, listeners and people to bounce ideas off of and say "Been there, done that, try it this way."

Sunday, we worked in the yard and spent time outside. Overall, it was a relaxing weekend where we learned a lot about each other individually and as a couple. Definitely helpful and meaningful.

Today, I'm ushering in the first full week of spring with a clothesline of cloth diapers! YEAH FOR SPRING!!!

Note to husband: the first hook on the tree needs moved up and over about 3". The line is sagging in the front.

I love the diaper picture! You sound like me. As soon as my husband gets home tonight, my first words will be "honey, you need to go tighten the windshield wiper on the truck. You know the one you meant to do three weeks ago." Poor guy. lol.

Be glad that you and your dad actually have one-on-one conversations. That's not a common thing, you know! There is always next time : )I'm glad the rest of the weekend was great.
