we are stronger here together than we could ever be alone....

I am loving the lyrics from this song right now ---> Hold On
I know I've posted on that Michael Buble song before....

I don't have much to post about so hopefully this doesn't end up too long, ha.
I had the day off yesterday.
Billy and I were supposed to go out of town for a funeral but plans didn't work out.
It was nice to have a day off in the middle of the week though.
I felt like I was on the go from the time I got out of bed until the time I crawled back into bed.

Billy had a lot of hockey phone calls to make letting parents know if their kids did or didn't make teams, he also had his own errands to run and a haircut appt. I love when he gets his hair cut, so clean cut and (more) handsome ;)

I did CardioMax.
Started laundry.
Cleaned up the house.
Went grocery shopping.
Ran a few other errands.
Did more laundry.
Taped the hallway leading upstairs and the upstairs hall.
Then painted it all.
We just needed a fresh coat of paint.
Billy cooked us ribs (4 hours in the oven) and onion rings for dinner, delicious!!
I threw in one last load of laundry.
Sat down to eat and we started watching American Idol.
I contemplated catching up on blogs but realized I still had stuff I wanted to do.
Cleaning up the basement.
Painting my nails.
And baking mini confetti brownies...


I was so sleepy by 10:00.
So off to bed we went.

My parents are coming over tonight for a snack food/appetizer dinner!
My parents are the "cool" parents, we love spending time with them.

So glad tomorrow is Friday!! Hope everyone has a happy Thursday!!

Things are finally looking all better in life right now and I couldn't be happier.
I've got faith in us and I believe in you and me...
