Company Girl Coffee 2.19.10
Hello Company Girls. No coffee today, due to my sore throat. So tea and Halls are what I'm having. Wondering what this is all about? Visit Home Sanctuary to learn more and be part of the fellowship.
I second Rachel Anne's comment. Where has the week gone? My Valentine's date kept me floating on air enough to forget the days! I did have a great week. Saturday, our dear friend took my kids to the Mardi Gras parade downtown then watched them that evening so hubby and I could go out to eat. Then Sunday night, Valentine's Day, she kept them again so we could see Book of Eli. I don't know how I would survive motherhood without great friends!
We also had our MOPs meeting this week. Every month, we have such a blast with 50 plus moms in our group chatting, eating, crafting. This month we made journals by simply covering composition books with scrapbook paper. I broke down and asked some girls to help me froo-froo mine so it wouldn't look so drab. And it came out cute! The best part is that I ended up giving it to my favorite CVS manager. She helps me out so much every week I shop there.
There was the usual shopping, which I meant to completely avoid. But who can when there's 75% off Valentine's sales at Target already! I did go ahead and "inform" the grandmas of the sale in case there was something they wanted to buy for my daughter's upcoming birthday. The downer for the week goes to no-tv punishment for 5 days since my kids wouldn't mind their mother. It's hard for me because I cherish that 1.5hr break to talk on the phone or blog. But after listening to Lisa Whelchel talk about her Creative Correction book, I was motivated to discipline. They weren't hurting though, Church activities provided enough tv time to compensate! I listened to Lisa on Focus on the Family (Feb 15 &16) and I highly recommend it, especially for moms with young kids.
I also went to Bible Study. It's always a fantastic time to fellowship and glean from one another. Are you gals in some kind of Bible study? Months where we have none seem to be the loneliest for me. Us women folk just aren't normal without company girl time. That's why I'm so glad for this group. Have a great weekend, everybody!
