work was alright today. BUSY of course, as it always is when i get back from any time away. *laugh* and this new mailbox... i just don't GET it, so it might take me awhile to figure out. ah well, i'm smart, thank God. LOL
after work, i just wanted to come home, read, watch some hulu & eat dinner. basically zone. *laugh* however, i'd just walked in the door when anthony texted to see if i wanted to come over. i'd just texted jen to see if leyton could spend the night friday or saturday, and she hadn't asked me to babysit or anything, so i thought she was home. i fixed dinner (YUMMY sweet potato & meatballs) & then headed over there around 6 for an hour. jen wasn't there, she had a volleyball game & anthony was watching leyton. they seemed to be getting along okay when i arrived.
we played w/ pinky & truck truck & a skateboard. we went thru the boys' candy to see what all they had been treated. we made videos! : )
and it was a BLAST! of course, then the hour was up & i was heading home - and leyton tricked (or treated) me into staying longer... we read the toys r us big toy book & then he wanted me to put him to bed, but he wouldn't get his jams on til i threatened to leave. then, just when his jams were on & i was going to put him to bed & head home, jen called.
she sprained her ankle at vb & was heading to the ER. could i take leyton home w/ me & put him to bed? well, of course!
so, we came home & took another 1/2 an hour to do more bedtime rituals & get him settled down. tooth brushing & potty & stories & prayers & hugs & kisses & snuggles & sleep. : ) whew!
once he was settled, i'd hoped to catch april still online, but alas it was too late & she'd gone to bed. *pout* hopefully tomorrow?! i did text w/ her a bit & w/ bret as well. : ) so, i just uploaded my pictures & watched 2 episodes of Castle (nathan fillion! yay! yay yay yay yay yay! : ) ).
now, i'm going to try & read a chapter of Two For The Dough & then hit the hay. gotta get up 1/2 an hour earlier (maybe) ... : )
God really does know what i need & when i need it. what blessings have you been given today??
