Wow... What a week!

So if you haven't noticed lately I have been MIA for a while, Joshua has been a bear and our internet has been horrible so I haven't had much of a chance to get on. I hope you are all still doing wonderful :) I am doing the same as always, getting by and keeping a smile on my face!

I went out this morning with a couple ladies from church to the thrift store, I found a TON of childrens books and they were only 10 cents each! Yes, you read that right, 10 CENTS. I was so lucky to go on the day they decided to put them on sale today because we have been needing to plump up our collection of books for my little guy. We got a few board books and plenty of books that will last him many, many years. Needless to say I was ECSTATIC. I love books and I love a great deal, so I was in heaven!

My family is planning to come to El Paso the 2nd week in June, I can't wait :) It has only been 2 months since I have been there (Not even really) but I miss them so much and have been so homesick ever since we left to come down here in December. I am so ready to move back to Minnesota. There's no place like home! But anyways... back to my original subject, My family is coming down here in a few weeks! So that has been the center of my focus for a week or so, trying to get the house ready and clean (at least as clean as it can be with all this dust). We are looking into getting a futon and setting up a guest room in our extra room upstairs. It is a diaster right now though... that's our job this weekend!

Ryan has CQ tonight, he got to come home for a couple hours though so it's not to bad! I get the bed to myself though, so that will be weird :)I think I might enjoy it. We will see how I feel about that in the morning... haha.

Well my little man is ready for bed, he is bathed, Daddy is reading him a book then it's off to sleepy land. Ryan has to leave for work agai in abou 20 minutes so maybe we will get a few minutes alone.. Depends on what Joshua's plan is tonight! I will be back tomorrow with a much needed picture update. Hope you are all having a great Monday! ♥

wow what a great deal on books! I'm jealous, and wish that I could get books for myself for 10 cents!
