How did your Lent start off? Good? Well, mine was going along swimmingly until I ate something with meat in it at breakfast this morning. Oh yeah, I'm a winner, right here... Doh!

I have my next appointment with my doctor on Monday. I'm taking Sarah, Dani, Helen and Dominic with me since they are out of school and would like to hear the heartbeat and all that jazz. I called the doctor's office yesterday to give them a heads-up that i'd be bringing them. When the nurse called back she said, "That's fine. We love kids!" Which is all fine and dandy and I never doubted that. I just figured they might like a heads up that that many people would be in the room, or something.
--- 3 ---For Valentine's day, my husband, sweet man that he is, made me dinner at home. He even had the kids all fed when I got home from work so we could eat together while they played or watched some T.V. Little Vincent still hung around in the room with us, but that was to be expected. After all, he doesn't leave our sides very often (when not at daycare anyway).

I think it's interesting that it was in meditating on how I will keep lent today that I realized I had just screwed up and eaten meat on a Friday. I mean, it has been YEARS since I have done that. YEARS!!! I guess it's a good reminder that it's a sacrifice and that I need to be fully aware of thsee things to be sure and make it the sacrifice it is supposed to be. It's also quite humbling...I mean, it's easy to get all pride-ful and be like, "Dude, I NEVER mess up at Lent...what's wrong with you!?!?" right?
Can you tell I'm a little annoyed at myself this morning?

Sunday, we just have volleyball practice for Sarah on the schedule. And sleeping in, too. Yes, that is totally on the schedule. Of course sleeping in technically means maybe...7:30 or so. but hey, it's an extra hour or two! :)
I hope you all have a great long weekend!!
