Still Alive :)

I doubt any of you thought I had died over here, but it's been several days since I've posted. Does "BUSY" mean anything to y'all? Here's a quick recap of last week:

Monday - FIL came over and we primed the dining room and hallway.
Tuesday - stayed home
Wednesday - Choir practice from 7 - 9.
Thursday - Dress rehearsal at church, Daniel was running the sound (I worked on my coupon binder) - 5:30 till... we got home after 10:30 I think.
Friday - Crazy, crazy day for Daniel at work, Women's Dinner & Theater at church at 6:30, Daniel had to be there early, didn't have time to come home and clean up (he was a mess) and was supposed to be in black pants, white shirt and bow-tie for the event (he was one of the singing waiters) = we both arrived at church about 5:45, we got home after midnight (read: in an effort to get to Kroger before they closed so I could get my Kroger Discount gas my car ran out of gas and it took an extra hour to get home - lesson learned).
Saturday - Caroling with a handful of choir members for 2 hours solid (11am - 1pm), outside. It was EXHAUSTING. It was fun, but afterwards everyone was eye-balls-slammin'-shut tired. (Oh, did I mention that I mixed up a coconut cake and baked it before we went caroling, then I mixed up the icing Saturday evening??) Daniel painted the top color in the dining room.
Sunday - Early to church (like every Sunday), lunch with some other couples at a lady's house and fellowship all afternoon (no nap), choir practice from 5 - 6:15, PM church service, then we had to do our trashcan duties. We left here at 8:am and got home at 9:45pm.

And not to mention that this week was "the" week and I always get super-duper tired towards the end of the week anyway. I didn't really feel like blogging! I did blog reading some, but just didn't feel like writing anything.

This week will be busy as well, but not nearly as many "away" things. I'm hosting a Stampin' Up workshop (rubber stamping/card & craft making) Friday evening, and I need to get alot done.

I also need to get on the ball with my menu planning. The last two weeks we've been really busy and I haven't taken time to menu plan. We've been eating quick, easy, simple meals. Alot of leftovers from the freezer or just simple stuff like hamburgers and mac'n'cheese.

And I also hope to do more blogging this week :) Thanks for bein' patient!

Miriam, I would love to see pictures of your coupon binder. I need a new method for storing mine so they are easier to find....

Busy! Wow! How in the world do you do all that? Better slow down, child, or you might spin out one of these days!

You make my week look like a sunny vacation. My wheels just spin in a much smaller area--my house! I think I changed about 5 poopy diapers today. I don't know why she couldn't have done it all in one or two episodes, instead of a tablespoon at a time. Ahhh, all in a day's work!
