Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phillipians 4:8

It's Thursday...

and the girls and I are nearing the end of our 'hunting widow' week. Paul will return late tomorrow evening and we will be glad to have him back.

Overall, the week has gone very well. The girls have been very well behaved, I might even say delightful!

We have enjoyed a variety of things while daddy has been gone. Eating out, renting movies, a trip to Hobby Lobby and Regan had a friend sleep over. I think all the non-routine stuff has kept it enjoyable for all of us.

Last night, we returned our movies to the Family video in Grand Haven and enjoyed a meal at G&L Chili Dogs. Corn dogs for the girls and Spaghetti for me! Yummy! The rest of the evening was filled with lots of beads, stringing them on pipe-cleaners making snowflakes and jewelry, a Dora video, ice cream (shhh...don't tell daddy it's in the freezer, Regan told me to hide it) and then off to bed for the girls.

My week with Paul away wouldn't be complete without some sort of heating related issue, so about 10pm I realized the pellet stove wasn't functioning correctly. Paul walked me through how to manually get it started again and we seem to be good to go until he gets home and can look at it.

We've made the best of this week, but I am definitely thankful to not be on this journey of life and parenting solo!

Hope your day is blessed!
