Weekends are never long enough.....

....especially when you're busy with work nearly 60 hours a week!

I keep hoping that my desire to figure out how to get some relaxation in will miraculously appear. Parts of me think that that might never happen. I'm so worn out and tired of life at the moment. I know that other people get this way, too, so I should just be happy with what I do have. Sometimes it's just not that easy. For the moment, I've managed to talk myself down from the roof, though, so I'll stay with that.

So yesterday we spent the day running around. There is a new mall in our area that is all outdoor, but has all the schwanky shops like Victoria's Secret, Hollister, etc. Aaron and his parents picked out new shoes for the babies. They're growing like little weeds, and needed a pair of good shoes each. Or at least a pair that hadn't been in mud puddles. Erin's pair is a hot pink pair with pink leopard-print trim. (She's into EVERYTHING pink right now!) Griffin's is a pair of red shoes, which he lovingly calls his James shoes. (he's into EVERYTHING Thomas the Tank right now)

After we left the mall, we took Aaron's sister with us to Target and then out to eat. She is away at law school for most of the year, so it's good to hang out with her when she's home for the summer and on breaks. We watched Ocean's 12, which was a pretty good flick. It's fun to figure out the twists and turns in the plots.

Today we went to church, and made it all the way through communion! We still left early, but the kids made their hour limit, and that's about as much as you can expect from the gruesome twosome.

OK, off to read more Harry Potter to Collin. I'm actually destroying my voice with reading aloud to him so much! It's quite funny, but we're having a lot of fun with this.
