Nice

It is nice to have family live by me and to watch Blake when we need it. Last night, my sister and her soon to be hubby came over to watch Blake. Jason and I ran to the outlet mall and then to workout together. I miss those times of when Jason and I would work out together. Especailly right before our trip to Mexico! As I was working out though, I missed Blake and couldn't wait to hold him. Janna and JP did a great job with Blake. We got home adn he was fed, changed, and sleeping! THis weekend we have a wedding, so my parents will watch Blake Friday night and Janna and JP again on Saturday night. I was listening to the radio and it was saying how to go on a date would cost so much $. YOu would have to pay a sitter like $10 an hour at least. It's nice to have free babysitting with lots of love and attention from family. Blake is truly blessed.

*** Side note**** As I was cleaning the house, I told Jason I wanted him and I to do something every Wednesday. I wanted a set day during the week because then it would get done for sure...I want us to have appreciation Wednesday. We would write a note or give a card and tell the other person what we appreciated about them the in the past week. Life seems so busy with a baby, Jason working ALL the time, and me being exhusted when he gets home...I think this will be good to set aside time and sit on the couch and read what the other one wrote. Can't wait for next Wednesday!

What a great idea, that will really help to keep the "spark" and appreciate that every marriage needs. Also, nice to hear that precious little Blake did so well w/ his Auntie Jana and Uncle JP.

I'm sure it is wonderful to have your family around to help out! What a blessing! I sure I hope that I will be blessed with family around soon!

I love your appreciation letter idea on Wednesdays. That is a great idea!
