FIRST Night away from my BABIES

I SURVIVED
Actually, I had a lot of fun, and though I missed the girls A LOT, I knew they were in excellent hands with Sharon and Stephanie. I did not even call, but sent a text after their bed time to make sure they were down OK.

Where was I?

My husband is in the Executive for the Teachers Union and they had meetings and a Christmas social last night. It was a lovely time and a wonderful dinner and socializing. The night ended with a Yankee Gift Swap, and my husband and I were very happy with our gifts of ITunes gift cards, and were happy that our SCENTSY products were well enjoyed, though I do not think someone enjoyed having their bottle of scotch taken away for some Scentsy products, but his wife was happy about it!

All in all it was a wonderful night and a great chance for my husband and I to spend some much needed alone time. This also was a trial run to see if I might be able to survive 36 hours instead of 24 hour so we can go away for a night to Halifax over the Christmas holidays to get away, as well as see AVATAR in IMAX.

So who knows what will happen, but I now understand those mothers who had a very hard time leaving their children for a night. Really though, it is not that I thought they would have a super hard time with it! Let's face it for most of us, it is because we mothers have the hard time with it.

How did your first night away from your baby/babies go???

Tuesday Tunes - Blue Rodeo

Yes.. Blue Rodeo!!
They have been around for A LONG time, but they are another great little Canadian gem (In my opinion at least) and no matter how many years go by, I always love listening to the voice of Jim Cuddy

I do not think I have more memories associated with Blue Rodeo (good and bad) than I do with any other band...

This is from their new album just released called The Things we Left Behind and the song is called "One Light Left in Heaven"

You know you are tired when....

You know you are tired when you change your daughters cloth diaper and go to put it in the wet bag and realize it is clean, and realize you somehow managed to put the wet diaper back on your child....

When did you realize you were TIRED????

A WEEK OF EVERYTHING AND NOTHING

So it has been a long week for some reason..
I missed Tuesday Tunes and Wordless Wednesday...

I promise I will be back next week.. I think part of it is the weather is getting cold and I do not like cold weather.. It sometimes puts me in a bad mood!!

Actually I will do Tuesday Tunes..
This is a unique song that many of you may not know... but give it a chance.. it grows on you..
Plus whenever I hear it, it makes me smile and tonight.. I certainly can use that.

What song makes you smile????
