On Friday we took Gwenith to the Louisville Science Center. We had a pretty good time. She can't read so it wasn't like a huge learning experience... she just liked the hands-on exhibits. When we got there it was almost completely empty which was great. She is very shy and gets extremely wispery and clingy in crowds. There were a couple of times that Alex went on ahead of us and when she lost sight of him she got scared that we were going to get lost.
We forgot the camera, but I took a couple of pictures with my phone on the way there. I couldn't resist. She fell asleep before we were even out of Mt. Washington, which is a good thing because she's very impatient on car rides.
She woke up when we were getting off the exit to downtown and said, "Oh my goodness! I really DID fall asleep!"
Yesterday we drove around with my Dad looking for a cheap gas stove for my parents. We also shopped for a new couch for us. We didn't purchase anything but I think we found the couch that we like. We also found a set with a coffee table and two end tables that we like for $98! We don't need the coffee table and you can only purchase the set of all three so I think that we'll sell the coffee table. I feel fairly certain we can get at least $50 out of it.
Last night I started feeling kind of cruddy with a sore throat and ears and head. This morning when I woke up my entire body was aching. I'm pretty sure it's just sinus junk but I didn't feel up for going to church. I thought I told Alex to tell Jennifer, our children's minister, that I wouldn't be there so that she could find a sub for my First Kids class, but I guess I just dreamed saying that. When he got home he asked if I had called her... whoops. I'm sure Brad did an excellent job handling the kids on his own. They usually listen better with only one teacher, anyway.
I still feel gross. Tylenol sinus isn't my drug of choice and I wish I could take something stronger. I would really like to take some Nyquil. I hope that I feel better for work tomorrow. :/
Happy Memorial Day. I hope that you take some time to remember those who have died for our country and to pray for those currently serving. I also hope that you're off work tomorrow and that you're enjoying this holiday weekend.
By the way... the countdown is on. Two more weeks until I start my new job! :)
