Yesterday was our 6th Wedding Anniverary! Unfortunately, Tom was out of town! He had the pleasure of meeting his male cousins, on his mom's side of the family, at Lake Powell for a "boys weekend"! I was fine with him being gone on our anniversary. I figured that he needed a break after graduating and starting work in June. He didn't really have much down time between graduating and starting his new job! It sounds like him and the guys are having a lot of fun. Can't wait to see his photos and hear all of their stories. We will celebrate our anniversary this coming weekend by going on a date. He also surprised me by having flowers delivered yesterday! How sweet.
Tom left early Thursday morning and will get back late tonight. I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do while he was gone. But, I managed to stay somewhat busy.
Thursday: Jordyn was in school in the afternoon, so I took Evan with me to get my driver's license. It was a miracle.... the DMV was almost empty!!! The lady who helped me even said it was very unusual. By the time I left (about 30 min. later) it was packed! Talk about good luck! I passed my written test, but got 2 wrong. I can't believe I'm going to admit this, but I missed the question on what a yield sign was! It showed a red and white triangular sign.... I thought yield signs were yellow!? Anyways, who cares, I passed! My photo actually turned out decent too.
Friday: I took Jordyn and Evan with me to the "Lending Library". I mentioned it awhile ago on here. It's a libraray where you can check out toys and equipment for special needs kids. You pay $10 a year and get to check out 6 things per month. We got 3 toys that are hooked up to switches. Jordyn pushes the button and then the toy plays it's song or dances, or whatever it does. Then we got 2 toys that vibrate. I will take some photos/video of Jordyn playing with them and post them soon. And of course, Evan thinks these toys are the funnest toys he's ever played with! Friday night I made Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cookies and watched the movie A Good Year. I knew Tom would never watch this movie in a million years, so I rented it while he was gone! The cookies were REALLY good and the movie was ok.
Saturday: I decided this was my day to do nothing. (Like I was so busy the other days!? haha) I should have cleaned the house or something, but I really didn't feel like it. I got to sleep in a little in the morning, which was nice. Then in the afternoon I watched Water World, which was on tv. For some reason, I remember this movie getting bad reviews, but this is probably the 2nd or 3rd time I've seen it and I like it! Saturday night I ventured out to the store with BOTH kids! The grocery store is one place I cannot take both kids by myself. I can't push Jordyn in her wheelchair, carry Evan or hold his hand, AND carry groceries. But, I made it work. I put Jordyn in the stroller (she is beginning to look ridiculous in the stroller... she is so big!) and Evan pushed Jordyn (or I held his hand). Then I put the milk in the small basket underneath the stroller. We made it in and out of the store with no problem! I spent the rest of the night getting the kids bathed, etc, and then read a book the rest of the night. I did get a rather large romance/mystery book at the library to read while Tom was gone. I am about 3/4 of the way done with it.
Sunday: Went to church. Came home, ate lunch, baked bread, and made Jello Jigglers. Now I am on here!
I can't wait for Tom to come home tonight! I've talked to him a couple of times while he's been gone. I always tell him,"It's so quiet and boring while you're gone!" I also HATE having to sleep alone... it's just creepy and I don't sleep well. Yesterday I pulled out our photo album of our wedding and honeymoon. I posted 3 of my fav. photos of our honeymoon. Tom and I still talk about our honeymoon quite frequently and how great it was. It was an farely inexpensive trip that we planned ourselves and we loved the area. We can't wait to go back some day! Happy Anniversary Tom!
