It was a lovely October weekend here in New England. Well, actually, it was a lovely Saturday here in New England. We submitted Aaron's passport renewal application (yes it's worth mentioning, because it is such an arduous process that it feels like such a relief to have it complete!). We went to the farmer's market and played with friends. We raked the leaves and the boys had fun playing in the leaf piles. We watched football. All good stuff.
Saturday night was date night, and Kevin and I went to see Argo. It was a very good, suspenseful film. It was also the first time in a really long time that I sat in a full theater, where everyone clapped at the end and stayed to watch the credits. We both really enjoyed it. We then went out for dessert and drinks. A great night!
Sunday was less lovely, but it was still fun. It was a gray, dreary, and wet day. My mother-in-law came. We got a few things done around the house. We went out to brunch. We enjoyed a rather lazy afternoon, managing to get outside a bit later in the day.
Goals for this week:
1. Pick out something else for the house. (We still have a lot of decorating to do. The list includes kitchen stools, a mirror, pictures and artwork, floor lamp, small end table, bedroom chair, oh and living room furniture... Needless to say, it's going to take us a while to complete this list, so we're just prioritizing and trying to at least start picking things out.)
3. Get a desk calendar and fill it up
4. Write a full week's menu so I can stay away from the grocery store for at least a week (I seem to be going every few days lately).
5. Deep breaths
