Monday in a Nutshell

January 6, 2009 Sarah Coggins

* It was back to our normal routine. Hence the photo of my Starbucks bag packed with my lunch & water bottle.

* Shipped out my latest Etsy sale – a cute Dubble Bubble t-shirt bag.

* I broke “the news” at work to my boss. Everyone else will find out tomorrow except for the one coworker who happened to be there after hours.

* Went to the monthly ladies night dinner with the group from church.

* Received another positive update on my mom from my stepfather. Small improvements, but making strides.

* Got home around 9:30pm and my sweet husband surprised me with new windshield wiper blades and put them on the car. This is huge because I’ve fussed for months that I need some new ones (the old pair were smearing) but kept forgetting to buy any myself! Knowing that rain is in the forecast for the next 2 days, Trent wanted to be sure I could see. 🙂

* Fed the cats their canned food dinner (spoiled!).

* Posted my Project 365 photo to Flickr.

* Off to bed!

    Aren't husbands great for taking care of us:) New windshield wipers don't sound like much, but they really are.

    We're kind of glad to get back to our non-holiday regular routine around here too. Just in time to have it all upset again when our new little one arrives in the next couple of weeks;)

    Fun post today! :-) Glad to hear your mom is continuing to improve. One day at a time...

    Santa brought our kitties some canned food. Oh, my...they are in heaven!

    Hey, coincidentally my DH just got new wiper blades for me, too. AND a refill of washer fluid! Woo-hoo! :-) Sweet of your hubby to take such good care of you!

    for some reason I thought the bags were much smaller, but in that photo it looks like a good size.

    Glad your hubby is taking such good care of you, He's a keeper! :)
