Here's some pictures of what Drew gets to do at home being "the only child".
This is the part that still isn't quite so fun, even with just one child home. I still can't get over the fact that it takes so long to run errands in a city! I leave at 9:00 and barely get home by 2:00 and then I turn around and my day is over. I'm going to try to plan doing this just one day a week. I would MUCH rather be home then in town. Yesterday, we went to Hobby Lobby (one of my favorite stores) and bought some things. I went in with a list of what I was looking for, so I wouldn't wonder around forever wasting time. I had these certain areas in my house that I wanted to finish up. I came home with this bag of goodies.
And ended up taking this bag of goodies back today and only keeping this:
It's a vinyl lettering quote. It was 50% off, so I paid about $10.00 for it. The quote says "Family a journey to forever". I love it there. I used to have something similar above my picture wall in my other house and I was really missing it here. Now I feel like this wall is grounded and the pictures have some sort of purpose. I walked around my house afterward wondering where else I could put something like this. There is more about this on The Errand of Angels Blog.
Nothing else in the bag worked quite right and I didn't want to settle, just to get it finished. Casey was glad that I returned everything else, but I let him know that I'm planning on going to dinner with some friends this Friday night and then we're going shopping. He said "oh". Hopefully I'll find some good things. I had fun in McKinney a couple of weekends ago shopping with my mom and Aunt. I'll have to do a post some time this week about that. I've been slow with everything lately, but I will get better! For those of you that are waiting for your food storage info. (I think there's about 5 from this weekend in my e-mail) it's on it's way...I haven't forgotten about you. I've just been trying to get my days in order!
