Caffeinated Randomness - 10 Years and Christmas News

Wow, this week has been another crazy and exciting week. It started off with a fever of 102.3 and finished with a town car ride.

Sunday, Thomas ended up with a one of those weird fevers that come and go for no apparent reason. As a result, I missed Bible Babes this week. I was a little depressed as we were starting Beth Moore's, David:: Seeking a Heart Like His . I had to watch the introduction by myself, so no one was there to hear me laugh and shout out (maybe that was a good thing).

Tuesday was a great day as I spent the morning with some friends over coffee and taco dip.  Don't let anyone tell you different, this was a great breakfast. We had a lot of fun talking about Christmas, men and kids.

Wednesday was C-R-A-Z-Y! I had Big Cook, speech therapy, and was helper mom at gymnastics. By the end of the day my feet hurt. I was wiped out emotionally and physically and had no capacity to do anything. I did however wash the floors as I couldn't stand to look at them any longer.

Thursday started off with Sam head butting me in the face. If he had hit me any harder, he would have broke my nose. He's been teething his 2 year old molars and they have been causing all of us nothing but grief. Poor little guy!

Have I mentioned that Thursday was also my 10 year anniversary! My husband and I have an on going "joke" that our anniversaries are jinxed. Something invertibly goes wrong - snowstorm, kids sick, we're sick, etc... This year we had originally thought about going away but couldn't find childcare. However, my wonderful hubby did tell me that we would be going to dinner at my favourite restaurant earlier this week. We arranged for a babysitter to arrive at 5:45 pm, as my husband said we needed to leave by 6 pm. When he came home, he came baring a dozen red roses. The babysitter arrived and I gave her all the instructions she needed. My husband then said we had to get going. I was expecting to drive into the city in our little car and grabbed my gloves for the cold drive in. To my surprise, there was a town car waiting for us with the driver opening the door for us. I felt so metropolitan and very New York Housewifish. We had an amazing dinner at my favourite restaurant (Mussels, Lamb and Butter Tart Flambe).  It was a great evening. My husband definitely deserves a lot of brownie points for that one.   I'm still excited about my dinner as I'm writing this.  

Now the Christmas part of this random blog.  Next week we will be starting Advent.  I'm planning on blogging around the themes of Advent - Hope, Love, Joy and Peace respectively.  I'm hoping to blog about what they mean to each of us and what they mean to me personally.  I'm also going to be Christmasfying Caffeinated Randomness during this season.  I'm hoping that you will all join me in the following themes.
December 4 - Our Favourite Things 
December 10 - Christmas Decorations  (I may even VLOG this one)
December 17 - Our Best and Worst Holiday Memory
December 24 - Christmas Eve Traditions
I can't wait to start and hopefully this season we will focus on the reason that we celebrate Christmas together. 

PS: In the spirit of Christmas, there may be a giveaway.  Stay tuned!
