A Lame Post Where I Keep Saying "BONUS!"

My day started off with quite the thrill. After driving the children to school and Ian to work, I headed to McDonald's to pick up coffee and muffins to take to my mom's for our visit. I ordered two large coffees, one large tea and two fruit and fiber muffins.

You know you wanted to know my order. I am nothing if not detailed, my friends.

The dude in the box said "$2.50. Please drive through."

Me: "TWO FIFTY!?!?" I don't know why I shouted at the box. I wasn't feeling cross or anything.

Dude in the box: "Yes, the coffees and tea are free this week. Please drive through."

Me: "BONUS!!!" (I know, I can't believe I said that either)

Gotta love it when your day starts with free stuff.

Tonight was Girls Club and after reading them a story about Advent we headed upstairs to work on some Christmas crafts. They made invitations for next week's Mother/Daughter Christmas Party and then made some ornaments.

We had worship music playing softly in the background and when Lord I Lift Your Name On High started to play, 20+ voices started singing along and doing the actions. I cannot describe how beautiful it was to be in that room with these precious little girls, working on their crafts and singing to the Lord. Oh my heart... it was awesome.

I am very excited to report that I'm going on a date with my husband this weekend. This is piece of information is blog worthy because we haven't been on a date alone in forever. I asked Ian out earlier this week and said I would take care of everything, right down to the babysitter.

Today Ian asked me who I found to babysit our heathens lovely children and I suddenly realized I'd forgotten to find someone.

Sigh.

"It's a surprise." I say. I didn't say that it was going to be a surprise for me too, because at that point I didn't know who I was going to find on such short notice. I spoke with our regular sitter - and I use that word very loosely because we don't go out that often - and lucky for me, she's free this Saturday.

BONUS!! (oh yeah, I said it again)

It's gonna be great.

Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends! There are no words to express how jealous I am that you all enjoyed a turkey dinner today. Hope you had a slice for me!

  5. Hey! You got to have turkey and all that last month didn't you? Last month or earlier this month or something? I can't remember the first time I popped by your blog but isn't that what you wrote about then?

    Hey but I'll still take the Happy Thanksgiving part. Hope your date night is a good one!
