It was a nice weekend.

I'm back from my weekend break. Saturday my sweet hubby let me sleep in until 9:30!!! I had gone to bed at 10:30 PM which is early for me lately. That means 11 hours of sleep, ladies!! If you don't count my quick trip to the bathroom in the middle of that night. = ) I used to laugh at my mom's puny bladder. Three children later I commiserate with her.

Oh! I should tell you Friday afternoon I decluttered half of my kitchen cabinets. There will be more about that later in the week.

I also did our taxes. I always do them with the tax booklet the IRS sends us. Sadly, I couldn't complete them because I need more information about the stock we sold. But I went ahead and ran some best guesstimates on the figures and it looks like we'll get a nice check back from Uncle Sam. That ALWAYS makes me happy. I've been sweating the taxes lately because 1. we had several unexpected sources of income (see the above link for more details) and 2. Joel got a really nice raise, and 3. we didn't add any children to our family in 2007 thereby increasing our exemptions and child tax credits. But it appears my fears and worries were unfounded. Isn't that the way it usually is?

Saturday I ran errands. More on that later. And Sunday we went to church. Tonight we ate supper at Chili's. They used to be my favorite restaurant. I still love their chips and salsa but the last 3 times we've eaten there I've not been very satisfied with my meal. Which makes me sad since we used almost all of our eating out money on that meal. Oh, well. There's always next month.

That's what I've been up to this month. I'll warn you now that next week, starting the 18th, I'm focusing on potty training Ben so I don't know how much I'll be on the computer then.

I think that's all I have to say, for now anyway.
