Yes! Friday is here!!!
And a beautiful Friday. We already hit the park this morning. We're supposed to see sunny & 81 today, and it's looking like the meteorologists are actually correct this time. ;)

We have a busy weekend ahead of us, with our godson's Baptism tomorrow, and then Sunday a graduation party for a good friend of ours. We'll be in Michigan all weekend, minus tonight. Tonight I think Pat will do some studying (his final is in 2 weeks...say some prayers), and then maybe we'll watch a movie or something. At least I hope.

So was your week?

My week was mixed. I was all set with a good menu plan & exercise routine in mind, but we had rain earlier in the week, and then money became very tight. Being broke always puts me in a bad mood, bringing on the pessimist within me.

Despite all of that, though, it was a decent week:
-Brennan went on the potty for the 1st time!!! He's been sitting on it, but this is the first he actually went. Of course it squirted mostly on me, but hey, he's catching on.
-I got in some good exercise. Never mind bugs flying into my eye.
-Speaking of exercise, as much as I can't stand The Pussycat Dolls, I really like playing this song while I walk. It's good get-moving music!
-Aidan had so much fun playing with all of his new toys this week. His birthday party was a hit, and the parents gave many compliments this week. I'm glad everyone had a good time!

-I was pleased with American Idol this week. Lil Rounds is talented, but it was time for her to go home. As far as I am concerned, it was overdue for Anoop.
-Dancing with the Stars~it cracked me up & amused me seeing Edyta actually wearing clothes! I love how her partner joked that she's allergic to clothes. Excellent.

-I watched the movie Made of Honor, starring Patrick Dempsey. It was better than I was expecting, yet what you would expect. Every once in a while a girl just needs a good chick flick, right?
-Speaking of Patrick Dempsey, I liked Grey's Anatomy this week. It was nice to actually see McDreamy and McSteamy getting along.

Now, can I bug you all with a request?
Could you please say some prayers that it will all work out financially for us to send Aidan to our parish school? It's humbling to ask, but I don't care.
My husband is already balancing two jobs, I applied with 4 stores this week, and there is not much else we can do right now. So if you think of it, please say a prayer that we can make this work. While I know our public schools are good, I truly feel what's best for Aidan is to go to our parish school.

So tell me your weekend plans!
Will you get outside to enjoy this nice weather?

Happy Friday!!

((HUGS)) I'll keep you guys in my prayers. Everyone seems to be struggling financially right now. It can put anyone in a bad mood.
I'm not a fan of PCD either, but that song isn't bad.
My week was strange and my weekend is going to be BUSY. I'm so ready for the week to be over. Hope yours is better!

I am praying, I know how you feel about finances. I try to just trust even when it seems hopeless and we are beyond broke I try to trust and listen and guess what? God hasn't abandoned me yet! Hang in there!

I'll be praying for you all, believe me, I know how stressful money is. Don't you wish it just didn't exist sometimes?!?

It sounds like your weekend should be fun-- I'm babysitting a 1 year old tonight (she's in bed) and who knows about the rest of the time? My youngest two sisters are in a play that I have to drive to Steub to see either tomorrow night or Sunday. I have Monday off to catch up on life and my sanity. Ha.

Praying for the school situation. I know it will work out... btw, I can't remember, are scholarships available?

Oh and it was NICE to see McSteamy and McDreamy being nice to each other...and what was up with Lexi eating the whole time. I thought she was preggo until the end... she was eating 'cause of nerves?!

WooHoo to Brennan on the potty!

And, know that you guys are in my prayers!
