The Weekend

I know life is busy when I've not updated the family journal for three days. I know it's REALLY, WEALLY BAD, when I have to pull out the calendar to remember what we've been doing. ::snort:: 

Friday ~ We got a few things done around here. I had an appointment to meet with a local friend to book a venue for a fun, local PWOC event being planned for the spring.  Unfortunately, the office is closed.  

Since we were already out, I asked Twyla if she'd ever had a pedicured. These terrified me. I was born with a really ugly toe nail and I thought any nail tech would run screaming from the room if I sat in her chair. BUT I keep hearing about how relaxing these are and I needed to relax. ::snort::  Off we went..while we waited for pedicures, I got my eyebrows waxed and a haircut. I'm a new woman.  I figured if I do Onsens I can do Pedicures. It was a lot of fun and the tech was fun to visit with. She recommended a new onsen. I promised to shave before my next pedicure. ::snort::  We ended the night with Pizza and Toy Story 3. 

Saturday ~ Everyone but me slept in. I went to the gym. I grabbed a breakfast treat and ate it all alone in a parking lot. I went to an onsen. I had planned to meet a friend, but ended up alone. That was fine. I had a good hour of soaking and thinking and praying.  

I put gyudon in the crock pot, started the rice steamer and we headed to Momoishi beach. We found more sea glass...... see the sea blue piece in the center of the photo? 

They are easier to see when they are wet. 

After dinner Michael wanted to go to the chapel and run through his sermon. Nolan and I made a commissary run and then went in search of pants for him. I shouldn't have been surprised when we found only ONE style that fit and there were two pairs left.....and they were $7.99 each. All others were over $25 each. Nolan needs slim and LONG.....

Sunday ~ Mike went to the 0800 service. The kids and I met up with him during the Sunday School hour. 1100 service found Jared running slides and us enjoying a sermon from our favorite chaplain for the first time in 8 months.

Michael napped; I watched the neighborhood kids play and so the Sunday went.

Choosing Joy!
