Happy Friday!!!

I am ready for the weekend…and I’m hoping tomorrow starts out better than the last 2 weekends have. Our neighborhood is having a yard sale, so I’m excited to get out and see what I can find. Specifically, I’m looking for a little table and chairs for Ella.

Tonight is the annual Murray Friday night pizza…Valentinos! We don’t get pizza EVERY Friday night, but we do a lot. And both Joe and I are eagerly awaiting the day when we can actually sit down as a family and watch a movie together. I keep thinking that if we choose a cartoon that has a lot of music then Ella will be more compliant, but no. She had no interest in “A Shark’s Tale” or any of the “Shrek” movies. Maybe I should try "The Little Mermaid," but then Joe would be bored.

On Monday, Joe will only have 9 weeks of classes left…EVER!!! (I told him that he’s not allowed to go back to school after this.) Do you know what this means? This means that for the first time in our entire dating and married life, Joe won’t have to go to school. What are we going to do with ourselves? I’m going to have to start actually making dinner more than 2 nights a week, and Joe will actually be home before 10pm. This is going to be weird. Wait…what if I don’t like him enough to actually spend 5 nights a week and full weekend days with him? This could be a problem. Just kidding, it’s going to be wonderful!

Not much to report from Murrayville. Ella continues to be an amazing little girl, and Joe and I are trucking along one day at a time. Have a great weekend. (How's that for a short and sweet post? I mainly wanted you to know that I hadn't forgotten about you.)

Let me just say that retirement...24/7 with Daddy...proved to be more of an adjustment than I thought it would be. I'm excited for you and Joe and Ella to have more unencumbered time to spend together after Joe's graduation. What an amazing journey you three have been on together for these past few years.

Check out Ikea if you don't find a table and chairs. They have a cute unfinished wood set that I think was around $20 or less. It is perfect for a craft project because you can paint it any way you want! (That is, of course, theoretical on my part since mine was spray painted beige and has gotten no further treatment in the last 3 months.)

Have a great weekend!
