Thurs Nov 20

It has been a few days since my last entry. Not much has been happening. The normal, laundry, picking up, grocery shopping. I really enjoy my days now that I don't have daycare. I am so much more relaxed and happy.

The house smells great today. I am making sauce for lasagna tonight. I love the smell of sauce cooking, it reminds me of when I was a kid and mom would make sauce and everyone would come home for dinner. We are having Jodi and Ted over for dinner tonight. Oddly, this is the first time they will be here for dinner. I can't believe we have never had them over. We have family dinner with my side of the family almost every Saturday. I can't imagine not sitting down to dinner with my family a few times a month. The boys even look forward to family dinner night. It is just a nice tradition. We sit down for dinner and the conversation starts flowing, then the laughter. I think it brings us closer as a family, which is needed in this world now a days. Most of the time we never make it back into the living room, we just sit around the table talking and laughing. Sometimes we play cards and have coffee with dessert. The kids play games together and the dogs run around. Sitting here writing about family dinner night really makes me feel grateful that we do it. Jonny has ask if we have to do it every Saturday, and well, as I write this I am thinking "why wouldn't we want to". It is just so wonderful.
