Happy Valentine’s Day!!!!

Happy Birthday, to my precious girl!!!!

Well, today is a “recoup” day! We had a very FULL weekend, which included having 10 preteen and teenage girls here on Sunday evening and overnight (yes, I am NUTS and should be committed!!!!!!!!!!!!…….ACTUALLY I was pretty naive…..I didn’t realize how loud that many girls can get…..esp. at 12:30 in the morning! …..there is a reason my mom wouldn’t let me have sleepovers past the age of 10 . Actually, the party was wonderful, and I was SO happy to be able to bless my girl in this way! She is such a blessing to our family, that it was awesome to be able to treat her like this! I secretly planned a “spa night” for her girlfriends, complete with herbal foot soaks, exfoliating, and foot massages…..and the time ended with my painting 100 toes! (Actually, I did 130 toes, because on Monday, my two little girls and their friend asked me to do a spa time on their feet). I was struck with just how special this was when one of the girls asked me on Sunday night “Mrs. S, are you sure you want to do this?” I hadn’t really thought about it before, but handling 10 girls feet could be conceived as being gross, but THAT thought never actually crossed my mind. I was so happy to bless them! AND the Lord was faithful…. I suffer from terrible carpal tunnel syndrome (just signing my name hurts my wrist), and I had been praying for relief of the symptoms for that night so that I wouldn’t have to stop in the middle to rest my wrist……I didn’t! My wrist didn’t bother me AT ALL that night! Thank you God!

Ok, onto today:   Today will be a restful day for all of us……Here’s what today’s agenda will include…..

*kids tidying up their bedrooms
*playing games
*watching olympic stuff that we recorded over the weekend

For me I will add:
*a load of two of laundry (HAVE to wash towels, I used ALL of our towels for their girls feet on Sunday night)
*general quick (45 minutes or less) tidy of house
*wet swiffer the kitchen floor
*bake bread
* prepare meals for my sweet little family

That’s about it today! Tomorrow we will get back to our normal school/work routines!

Here’s what’s happening in the our kitchen today……
