Week 7

Happy Tuesday!  It always throws me off when the Tuesday is the day after a Monday holiday, but that's ok because I'm happy to have had the day off.  It was actually a nice long 4-day weekend for the boys and I because they had Friday off too.  Poor John got stuck working the weekend because of his company's recent change over and the need to get inventory done.  He did at least get to enjoy the Monday holiday, and we manged to squeak in a dinner out to celebrate Valentine's even if it was a day late.

Take a look at how it all went down-

Day 40- Monday, 2/9/15
Brandon is working on is homework needing the computer.  It's a good thing we have a couple desk top computers and laptops because more and more assignments these days require the use of the computer and for extended periods of time.  There would be a whole lot of waiting and late nights if we only had one--total sign of the times.

Day 41- Tuesday, 2/10/15
It's time to select high school classes for next year.  See that "12"?!  It's real sobering to think that I'll have one in the 12th grade and preparing to graduate come August.  He's not the only one selecting high school classes though.  Justin will be a freshman next year and he too was using this same course catalog.  It should be an epic year.

Day 42- Wednesday, 2/11/15
It's been a really warm and sunny week.  There are so many flowers blooming.  It's most certainly starting to feel like spring and looks like we have no more rain systems lined up for the rest of the month :0(  We need a March miracle!  It's happened before and hopefully it can happen again.

Day 43- Thursday, 2/12/15
Not again!  Last Monday I had a nail in my left rear tire that had to be dealt with, and then yesterday my tire indicator light came on so I took the car back in.  Now I have a screw in my right rear tire.  Somebody must have dropped their whole toolbox on our roadways.  Thank goodness for the indicator light.  It's so much easier to deal with it like this than have a blow out and be stranded on the side of the road.

Day 44- Friday, 2/13/15
These boys are Bella's support system.  Last week she was helping take care of them and this week they are here for her as she visits the vet for her annual trip to the UC Davis Community Practice.  They both love to tag along and she's happy to have them even though she doesn't really mind her vet visits.  The clinic gives her more treats than we usually allow, and she knows it and works it. 

Day 45- Saturday, 2/14/15
Happy Valentine's Day!  John had to work all day, and we missed him but still kept busy and had fun.  I made chocolate sugar cookies for the boys to decorate so we'd have a special dessert.  John and I didn't have time to go out for dinner so while he was at work I made a lasagna to enjoy for dinner at home.  We haven't had homemade lasagna in a long time so it was a nice treat especially since I knew it was one of John's favorites.  He also spoiled me with yummy chocolates and special gifts once he got home.

Day 46- Sunday, 2/15/15
It turned out John also had to work today, but he was at least home in time for us to go out to dinner at the Zocalo's in mid-town Sacramento.  I'm sure it was way less crowded tonight than last night.  It was a beautiful warm night with a nice sunset and a great meal.  We were both happy to be able to squeeze in a real date this weekend of all weekends.

That wraps up another week.  February is such a short month.  I'm kind of freaking out that it's more than half over now because it's our easy month and things start to get crazy busy again in March.  We'll just have to enjoy it while it lasts.


  1. What a busy week! How crazy to be selecting courses for next year already!
    The V-day baking looks lovely and so glad you got a date night (-:

  2. Wow, you're going to have 2 high schoolers!! Crazy! I'm glad you all had a great Valentine's Day. We did the same thing -- cooked at home with the kiddos and then had a date night out on Sunday night. It was nice to stretch out the holiday over 2 days!

  3. Abigail and Olivia registered for HS next year last week, and it was really weird to see 12 on that paper, and 10. Crazy! Love the flowers! We had snow this week! Your Valentine's look fun and glad you got a date night, even if it was a day late. Makes the fun last longer! Have a great week!
