No pictures this week

Well, Matthew came home for the weekend, and it was great to see him! On Saturday he participated in another sprint triathlon, so I took the boys to my mom's school's Fall Festival, where we had TONS of fun! I'll post pics later.

The reason I can't post pics until later in the week is because Matthew is out of town again. Until Thursday. And he has the camera. Because he had an extra day (today) and drove to NYC.

NYC!! I talked to him on the phone earlier today as he was walking through Times Square, my favorite part of NYC.

Sigh.

Speaking of NYC, Andrew and I are watching the U.S. Open Men's Tennis Final. Del Potro is giving Federer a run for his money, but I have faith that Federer will prevail.

He's pretty unstoppable.

As you can see about 16 seconds into this video, from the semifinal yesterday.

Unstoppable. (Make the video fullscreen so you can see it better.)

We have a pretty normal week this week, despite the fact that I'm a single mom again.

Preschool tomorrow, dinner at Mom's tomorrow night, PT for Baby B on Wednesday, preschool on Thursday and then Matthew will be home!

Speaking of Matthew, his 32nd birthday is this Friday, so we're going to eat at Mom's house. His choice: chicken enchiladas, mexican rice, refried beans, chips & salsa, and a strawberry Sprite cake with Cool Whip and strawberries.

Yum.

Hope you all have a great week! Hopefully the weekend will come quickly. :)

Oh, thanks for all the advice on the mailbox gardening project. I am not going to do anything with it this week since Matthew is not here, but in the next week or two, I will be tackling it! I'll be sure to take pics and update you.

**UPDATE**

WOW! I guess Federer wasn't so unstoppable after all!! He lost! It was a wonderful match, and I am very proud of Del Potro!! Both men handled it like gentlemen. :)

Now I'm on a break from sports until college basketball March Madness. LOL

I need to try the sprite cake tonight :). I am so starving but trying to watch what I eat. I am so excited that the end of choas is in sight for you. Me, you, Matthew, Paul, Seinfeld showdown ASAP.

JILL said...

Yeah - we want that sprite recipe posted. The whole birthday menu sounds delish!!

You sound a lot calmer this week being on your own. Hope this ends the travel for a while.

I agree with the others. Give me details about this sprite cake. Sounds yummy! Oh, out of curiosity, have you heard anything about Synagis for B yet? I haven't heard anything here.

Excuse me, but I believe I found an error in this post. Last paragraph. Two options for corrections: "I guess Federer was stoppable after all!" or "I guess Federer wasn't so unstoppable after all!"

I know this is a little harsh, but I live by the motto: "Friends don't let friends make mistakes on their blogs."
