It has been awfully quiet around the blog lately. We have had some rather stressful weeks around here. It's been really hard!
Tony worked almost sixty hours last week AND had 12 hours of school. He has also put in some hours this week. I have had meetings and appointments for the kids these last two weeks. Awana is at it's craziest point right now. It all sorta came in like a storm.
Things are hopefully looking up though. No school for Tony this weekend, although he will probably have a rather long Monday at work. For various reasons our kids won't have a visit this weekend, so that is one less thing to worry about. We are taking the kids to the Circus this weekend (our Almamater has a circus. It's one of the few still remaining and it is spectacular. Plus, we get discounted tickets as Alum.)
Tony's birthday is Sunday, which means steak - YUM! My husband is the best steak griller I know. Tonight I am surprising him by giving him a guys not with a couple of good friends. I just took out the last batch of cookies, have his favorite pops stashed away, and have a Happy Birthday banner and brownies in the plans. I'm hoping it's a good night for him - he certainly deserves it.
I'm hoping this weekend will be relaxing for us all. We really need a chance to reconnect as family and have some fun. It won't end the stress in our lives but hopefully we will go into this next week a little more refreshed. Hopefully I will be able to pick back up on blogging next week.
Until then, I'll leave you with this adorable picture of Tony painting Addilece's nails. Anybody who knows Tony KNOWS that he just doesn't do these sorts of things. However, when his little girl insists that it needs to be him that paints her nails, he steps up to the plate to show how much he rocks as a Daddy!
