My Day Off

Most days that I don't go to work, I think, are really not days off....for instance, I woke up this morning at 6am like I usually do. Got the kids ready for school, gave Melody a bath, made her breakfast, did some light shopping (nothing for Christmas - got Melody a winter jacket and Angel some socks and Dylan a couple of shirts). I managed to finish my calendar swap pages and Susan's Circle Journal entry. I baked a loaf of Tastefully Simple Bountiful Beer Bread to go with the Artichoke & Spinach Dip I made to bring to tonight's swap and crop.

I dismissed the kids early from school to bring Dylan to the doctor to check out something out (follow up from a couple of weeks ago). And on the way home, at a red light, I took this picture:
When I got uploaded into my computer, Dylan said "Wow, mom you got a picure of Bean the Bunny in the sky." Bean was our first bunny that died of what I like to think were natural causes at the end of last summer. He's the big shadowy figure on the lower right of this picture...
"how observant you are," I thought...moment of silence for Bean.

Tomorrow night is my company Christmas party...otherwise known as the annual Rees date night. The kids will be sleeping over mom and dad's house and we'll be there, bright and early on Sunday morning to pick Dylan up for a 7am game. So much for having a bombing good time...the Christmas party (or Holiday party as it is known at work) is usually a great time!!!
I'll blog about it before this weekend is up.

P.S. Props to my friend, Kimmie who was recognized on her blog by artist Claudine Hellmuth. You go girl! I'm wicked proud!!!
