I know, I’m a day late. But it felt a little weird to miss this. Yesterday, we had a busy day. I woke up and worked on a friend’s website all morning. Kristen ran some errands. Before we knew it, it was time to go to the beach with our friends from community group. We went up to Torrey Pines, where we met our group along with our refugee family. How is it possible they had never been to the beach before? Not only that… but we were completely amazed at the kids language acquisition. Last Fall they barely spoke any English at all… now the kids feel mostly comfortable with English and mom and dad aren’t too far behind. That’s fun to see.
A lazy evening followed. This was capped off by the delivery of a brand new mattress. Since moving to this house Kristen and I have slept on a double size mattress on the floor. It was fine but excessively ghetto. On Friday, Kristen and I decided to finally solve this aching (literally) problem and headed to a furniture store in Kearney Mesa called “Real Deal.” Just like the reviews of the place promised, this was a great furniture store. Lots of choices and a friendly, no commission staff. Long story short, we got our long-awaited mattress delivered last night. We went from a double mattress on the floor to a massive king sized bed. We both slept like rocks last night. I went to bed about 10 minutes after Kristen last night and she was completely knocked out… that never happens.
Anyway, this morning is quiet. Kristen is off running a 5k and I am home with the kids before church. Here are the next 10 tunes I’m listening too. As always, these are completely random and my ratings are included.
