Playdates Galore: My strategy for surviving when Carl is gone to find lots of stuff for us to do so we stay busy! I may have gone slightly overboard because we have had seven play dates this week and two more planned for Friday. It's been fun to see everyone and catch up. We have had lunches at McDonald's, backyard fun, book club, Mom's Night In at my house, Mom's Night Out at Chuy's and dress-up fun. What a week! We sure are lucky to have such wonderful friends to spend our days with and these memories will be treasured always. Best part of a play date is that it forces me to clean my house! Our house has been super clean all week. YAY!
