It's Monday and I'm dreaming about the weekend even though it was less than 24 hours ago. You see it was one of the best weekends I've had in a long time. It was just perfect. Here is the short version, since I tend to be long. It feels kind of silly writing about it, b/c I've told lots of people and I really don't have any idea how many people read this blog, I wish I knew. So if you're out there reading this, you could just say hi on the comment page so I know you're out there.

OK on to the weekend. My sister in law took our kids overnight, it was the first time we've ever left them, not b/c we're some over protective parents, just b/c we just never have. Aaron and I had the most fun we've ever had just the two of us. We went out to eat, shopping, and got some wonderful deals! I got $140 boots for 30$ Wahoo! I love the shoppers high, dangerous but exhilarating. The we ran to Target for a belt ( long story) and then went went dancing. It was perfect.

The next morning I was lieing in bed wide awake, b/c I must be old now and I can't sleep in and I thought a quiet house, all to myself, I knew it was my chance. I set up my scrapbooking table and started putting together our family profile for our adoption. In 2.5 hours I had it mostly put together and just had the birth parent letter to write. Aaron helped with that off and on throughout the day and we finished it. So now, we just have to meet with our social worker so show it to her, and I think we're good to go, she should be able to send our paper work out within the next couple of weeks. YEAH!

Yay for aunties! I'm glad you got that profile off your mind.

Leave your kids more often. You'll get used to sleeping in again!
