There is definitely a little (or a lot) of good in some quality adult time! Jeremy and I were fortunate enough to get a night out last night thanks to the in-laws taking the kids. We FINALLY used our Capital Grille gift card to eat some delicious filet mignon. Then we joined the throngs to see Quantum of Solace at the Uptown (neither of us thought it was outstanding). We ended up the evening stuffing ourselves with ice cream at Coldstone. It was a great night!
After sleeping in until 7:15am (aahhh, what a luxury!), we worked off the night before by cleaning up the front yard that had been taken over by leaves and half-eaten pumpkins (thanks to hungry Mr. Squirrel). What a sense of accomplishment to see the finished product! Not only was I excited to see it all cleaned up, but I was even more excited knowing that the family wouldn’t be tracking in leaves every time we came through the front door. (I have been vacuuming daily!)
A good meal, quality time with my husband, a clean front yard (and home)… I’d say it was a pretty darn good weekend! I’ve got to keep the spirit up and start my Monday on a high note.
