short week

Boy, this week sure flew by fast! Not much has gone on around here. DH started back to work this week for his 2 week rotation. Leaving at 7 AM then not getting back home until after 10:30 PM makes for really long days.

I did get the laundry done & the new guest room ready for guests. Still fighting this darn cold. The cough has slowed down a lot & I have my voice back, but I still have some head congestion. There was so much I wanted to do this week but just didn't feel like doing it.

The girls have been very busy at work this spring. Next weekend is the Alexandria Afire! celebration.
We'll be very busy all weekend in our Civil War attire. It should be fun though! As long as it's not to hot, that is.

DS loves his new job! He's working nearly every day & has already made it to Assistant Manager of the Jackson Street shop. He does come home tired every day. He puts on quite a performance for the customers as he fixes their beverage. Yesterday he said he received a $10 tip as well as applause.

I guess the newlyweds are doing OK as I haven't really heard from them this week. The only way I know what they are doing is when her parents mention them in their blogs. So I eagerly scan those each day to see if they're mentioned. Once they get moved into their own place, I hope to be able to call them or get on the webcam with them so we can stay in touch on a regular basis.

Tonight is the first meeting of the Fab 4's for church. People have been assigned to different groups to meet monthly for food & fellowship to get to know each other better. I'm looking forward to it. I only know the host couple of our group. But it seems to be a variety of ages involved. That's a good thing!
