The weather here has been quite nasty the last two days. Some schools even closed early because of tornado warnings today. When the second batch of storms came thru this afternoon, Jason packed up and came home a little bit early. Then we almost didn't go out but we took a chance and ended up at Olive Garden (we had a gift certificate and a coupon, how could we not?).
We only went to dinner, but it was nice to get out for two hours without having to answer a Mommy or Daddy question.
Thanks for all the Facebook wishes!!!
I has been a good day! (and I got Jason hockey tickets for December, so we'll get to enjoy those while the kids sleep at Grandma's house)

The 5 Love Languages are: Quality Time, Words of Affirmation, Physical Touch, Gifts, and Acts of Service.
I've decided to read this book and probably will refer to it in future posts. I've studied it in different groups, but I'm ashamed to say that doesn't mean I've read the book. I hear there is one about raising children too. As I try to understand the minds of five different little ones (especially one emotional daughter), it might be helpful to read that one too.
I took the quiz and just knew what my outcome would be, but I wasn't entirely correct? I assumed my Love Language would be Quality Time. I require a lot of one-on-one time from Jason. I also am a snuggler so I guessed Physical Touch would be a close second.
I had a 3-way tie. Quality Time, Physical Touch and Words of Affirmation. Does that mean I'm higher maintenance than the average women?
So, all of this, before I pick up the book - It makes me wonder: Do you think your Love Language is molded by who you marry? OR Are you attracted to someone that speaks your love language? OR Are there just those couples that really struggle because they aren't on the same page? Probably, all of the above!
The weird thing for me is that I've been told (remember I haven't read the book yet) that you usually speak the language that you like to be loved by the most. For Jason, my 3-way tie would make sense. I need lots of time with him, I have to be holding his hand when we are close and I love that he is very, very complimentary (and that our boys are picking up on that for their wives one day). But in my day-to-day life of friends, I'd say I show love by gifts - treats, cards (which as I'm writing this, I'm thinking this probably goes under Words of Affirmation, not Gifts?), small surprises?? On my quiz I got a "zero" for Gifts, but maybe that is because my husband isn't a gift giver so I couldn't relate to the questions on the quiz.
Just thinking "out loud"!!!
What is your Love Language? Are you sure?

And I'm not ashamed.
Daegan has had three teeth dangling for awhile now and for some reason, I couldn't handle it anymore. When he got home from school today I told him I'd give him $2 if he pulled those teeth out. Literally, within 90 seconds he had all three out. Apparently, losing three teeth in a day is a family tradition!
And inflation has affected our household also??

Then the boys moved outside to footballclimbing trees, chasing cats, and all those other things boys do.The girls played American Girls, we painted fingernails and toenails and they got dressed up.The boys then moved inside and played 45 minutes of Fusion Frenzy on Xbox.And the girls (plus Tavis) moved outsideThen everyone moved outside with snacks in the picnic basket (notice my new picnic basket)Having Ally and Micah over was long overdue. So glad we got to enjoy them today!!!
The kids are already planning their next visit.
