life is good

things are going pretty smooth around here these days (knock on wood) and because I know that's not always the case, I plan to enjoy it as much as possible.
Everyone seems to be in such good moods...could be that we are getting a fabulous break from winter with temps above 10 degrees!! It's been melting here since Friday...things are pretty messy. So much for our backyard rink.
Life is simpler with having the menu plan in place. Having Brian at home during the day too to pick up the slack with me being at work. It's freeing up a lot of time for me to spend with the boys, Brian and by myself.
Brian had to go out of town for a couple of days this past week and I was lost...I had to clean up after breakfast...before I went to work..instead of leaving it for him after we all left. I think I have become pretty accustomed to that. Will miss that when he goes back to work.
I'll miss him when he goes back to work. Especially if he and his contractor get the bid for a job in Kuwait!!! ya, that's right...he could end up over there this year for work. They are working on the bid this week and I'll be sure to keep ya posted!
We had a hockey free day yesterday so I did some scrapbooking. It was a struggle to get my mojo going but once I did, I was pretty happy with the results.
I did not however, play with either of my new toys. I'll save that for an evening this week.
I too am celebrating a minor success...I have dropped a pants size and two shirt sizes since starting work full time. Who knew work could have so many!
We also have one other thing that is bringing a smile to our face but I want to wait a bit to share it. I know, I's not fair but I have to leave you wanting to come! and NO I am not pregnant!!
Until then...I'll be seein' ya!

I hope you don't plan to keep us in suspense for long about your other news.
