We went to a 10 a.m. appointment on Saturday morning. After that it was time for brunch, so we headed to Mimi's Cafe for an unplanned date without the kids. Love that!
I have been craving French onion soup ever since my mom mentioned it a few weeks ago. I think Mimi's has the best soup. Oh, and I also enjoyed a berry mimosa. So delicious.
We came home and started packing up Christmas. Pain in the butt. Small tree waiting to be stored.
I LOVED having a flocked tree this year, but I HATED the mess it made. I honestly don't know if I want another one due to the nasty mess. Ask me again 300 days from now.
I needed Eric's help getting the star off the top.
And I needed his help getting the darn thing out the back door. I should say I wasn't much help. I did take photos!
That was quite the effort (not on my part) getting this sucker to the curb.
It was a two man effort getting this little corner clean.
After all that, I had no desire to cook. I don't need much of an excuse to not cook!
This is a good man. He doesn't really like this dog, but he always lets Harry snuggle close. Real close! I think the expression on Eric's face says it all!
Eric got up early and cleaned the kitchen. I did not get up early, but once I did, I had to go grocery shopping. There's nothing worse than starting the week scrambling for food and having to shop Monday after school. As much as I don't want to shop on the weekend, it makes the week that much easier.
When I got home, Eric had made the family French Toast. Again, he's a good man!
The rest of the day was spent taking down more Christmas. Still not done, but getting there. We also watched the Cowboys beat the Lions. Oh, and I cooked for the first time in forever! Nothing special...just chicken and rice, but still, we were at home around the table.
Here's to the start of a new year, new month, new year, new goals.
