Sunday 11/14 - After church, Luke watched the Browns while I read all day. I finished Jurassic Park! What a great book! Later, we went shopping and bought our new couch, which is our Christmas present to each other. Following that, we met Luke's mom and family at Olive Garden, to celebrate her birthday! It was a good time, and we all got a free desserts due to a mess-up of a few people's entrees! Score! Anyway, it was a great night!
Monday 11/15 - I stayed home all evening, catching up on things and also relaxing after a long day at work.
Tuesday 11/16 - After work, I headed to the church to work on the next newsletter. Then Luke and I decided to skip Connect Group later, because he is really sick. I gave him my never-ending cough. Oops!
Wednesday 11/17 - I went to the church after work again to finish the newsletter. I got most of it completed, then went grocery shopping and spent the rest of the evening at home, once again. Okay, so this week wasn't the most exciting one ever.
Thursday 11/18 - Again, after work I went to the church, this time for a meeting about the new system we will be using in the new library. After that, Luke and I went out to pick up our couch, and eat some dinner. We were so excited!...until we got home, and Luke and his dad tried to bring the couch in, and realized that it was physically impossible because of the layout of our entrance, and the length of the couch. And they ripped the couch in the process. Our fun, exciting night quickly turned into one of the most frustrating nights we've had since being married!
Friday 11/19 - Luke was able to take off work to fix the couch situation. He was able to return the couch, and only had to pay a fee for damages. He then picked out a different couch all on his own! (Well, except for the input I was texting him based on the pictures he was sending me from his phone). It is supposed to arrive next Wednesday, and hopefully I love it! Anyway, when I got home, I pretty much took it easy for the rest of the evening. I was so burned out and stressed out from the week, and STILL having coughing fits (it's been 5 weeks and they're still not completely gone. I feel so bad that Luke got it too!) So I watched some of the Disney Movies Luke had ordered, which arrived earlier in the week. A relaxing night was just what I needed!
Saturday 11/20 - I decided to have a pre-holiday cleaning day! It was fun! I burned some holiday candles and listened to Christmas music all day while I cleaned. Later in the afternoon though, Mom picked me up and we headed to a craft show right down the street. All the Christmas stuff really got me in the mood for the season! Once I got home I continued to clean until I had another meeting at the church for the campaign committee. It ended up being a great meeting, and really inspiring, too! After the meeting, Luke and I had our date night in, which consisted of us sitting in the beanbag chair since we are couch-less, and watching a movie. We felt like college students. Anyway, I DID end up falling asleep through most of the movie. Ugh, I hate it when that happens! And it always happens! Oh well, maybe next time I'll be able to stay awake!
Milestones this week: I finished my third campaign newsletter, and Luke and I survived a particularly stressful situation with the couch. God definitely saw us through that one!
Movies I watched this week: I didn't watch any the whole way through because of my fatigue this week, but I watched most of Enchanted, and I give it an A+ ;-) It is too funny and cute, and I love the music! I can't wait for the sequel to come out!
Books I'm reading this week: The Bible (Almost done with I Samuel), Finished Jurassic Park byMichael Crichton, and now I'm reading The Lost World, also by Michael Crichton.
Songs I'm loving this week: Hallelujah (Light Has Come) - Barlowgirl, also loving Barlowgirl's version of O Holy Night. It's a Barlowgirl week! :-)
Things I'm looking forward to next week: So many things - THANKSGIVING!! Having a 5-day weekend, spending time with family, decorating for Christmas, Christmas movies starting on ABC Family, picking up our second new couch ;-), GETTING AND DECORATING OUR TREE!! And possibly going to see HP 7 Part 1!! Wow, it is going to be a great week!!
