Saturday Seven

2010 ~ Week 9

{1} Days Walked/Ran: 0
(Russ was gone all week...)

{2} Dr. Peppers Consumed: 1

{3} It was a bit of a rough week with Russ gone on a business trip, but we survived.
My sister, Shannon, and I managed a girls' night out at our favorite theater to see When In Rome.
I don't know the last time I've laughed so hard. The movie got terrible reviews, so maybe I just really needed to laugh.
At the very least, it was a refreshing change to watch a romantic comedy that didn't go for the raunchy jokes.
(Thanks, Mom and Dad, for letting the boys come over for a movie night!!)
My sister, Holly, and I (and the kids) met up at our favorite nature hike location for a wonderful time of walking and enjoying fresh air on Friday afternoon.
Russ returned home this morning at 3 am. He got in a few hours of sleep and then took us all to my favorite (sentimental) donut shop
and to the last event of the Children's Performing Arts Series: African Acrobats.
The boys have played like crazy outside in this lovely weather, and we're headed to my parents' house for pizza.
Not bad.

{4} Daily Reading (Bible, A Year With C.S. Lewis, Intellectual Devotional): Still plugging along.

{5} Days of Math with Levi: A couple. Yeah, not such a good week.
Dad gone and Levi and Leif both sick. That's my excuse. Next week we'll make up for it.

{6} Intentional Reading:
Finished The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner's Dilemma. Read The Savage Damsel and the Dwarf (Gerald Morris) cover to cover.
Headed into Quo Vadis by Henryk Sienkiewicz for book club this month in honor of Easter. This one is a book with a capital B. Whew.
I really need to catch up on book reviews.

{7} No pool. Again.
I just can't manage all 3 boys at the pool by myself. (Can you hear the whining?)

Give thanks for what you are now,
and keep fighting for what you want to be tomorrow.

sounds like a good week overall, I know it's hard not having dh's help.

I loved the The Mysterious Benidict society!

Rachel~ It was Cork's. :) I remember going in there with my dad when I was little. An old guy was always there. We called him Donut George. My sisters and I loved to wipe out the little baskets and put new paper liners in them. Good times.

I understand about having your hubby, gone. My husband travels for work nearly every week and I am 8 mos pregnant with #3. You are brave to make public your accountability. Just remember that victory is acheived by perseverance not perfection. Take care.

Hang in there Heidi. Sounds like we had nearly an identical week as yours. Absent daddy, icky sickies, not much school, missed a field trip, missed part of co-op...bleh. Here's to an active and productive NEXT week!!!! (((Hugs))) ~Tera
