Valentine's Day(s) and this week

Valentine's Day this year came a little early for me. I had clinical until 2230 (1030p) on Tuesday, so on Saturday the 11th around 4p Tony came into the living room and told me to pack Drew's bag and take the boys to his brother's house. Austin had known about this for a day or two. I took the boys and came home to a dinner of steak, asparagus, baked potatoes and dessert of homemade molten chocolate cake. It was so wonderful! He is very thoughtful because I figured we would just give each other a kiss before I went to the hospital and that would be it (good thing I had already bought him a gift!).

This week was the first week I haven't watched my brother's boys 2 days a week. I have missed them! But -- it is really nice to have a full day for just Mommy and Drew. I was also able to take my time grocery shopping and Drew and I had lunch with Tony on his break. Next Thursday I hope to take Drew down to the Indy Children's Museum.

We are searching for a preschool for Drew. The church we have been attending doesn't have a preschool, so I have been looking online at some other churches around here. If only I could transport our church and school in Greenwood up here. . .

I was looking over my goals for this year and the church and house goals are moving along. The bedtime at 11 goal is not going as well - I have been trying to go to bed before midnight so far with a future goal of 11p. Baby steps. Reading a non-school book is not a realistic goal while I am in the middle of school but I know once this semester is over and I have a break I will read a LOT. I always do, I just need to make sure I don't read only fluff books. Exercise, exercise, exercise. This seems to be my Achilles' heel. I have been playing Just Dance more often but other than that have fallen short on exercising as much as I would like.
I have been packing packing and packing boxes and it still doesn't look like we are moving for awhile if you judge by the amount of stuff I have left to pack. Seriously how did we get so much? I really need to make sorting and giving away a priority after this semester is over. Maybe we will have a garage sale in our new house!

In other news, the Detroit Red Wings just won their 22nd consecutive home game. I don't really enjoy hockey but Tony is watching the game. :)

Have a great weekend!
