It's Xbox night...every Saturday night...

I look forward to Saturday nights. I used to hate them because for one night every week I felt neglected. Jeff and I would fight the first few years we were married. It is a night reserved for Jeff and his friends and Xbox. Male bonding. Whatever.

It has been a LONG time since I have felt that way. I now look forward to Saturday nights. Especially now that Derek and Clint actually go to bed at the same time, and usually sleep all night. I have the whole night to myself, and I appreciate the time I have. Sometimes I go see movies with girlfriends, sometimes I read or watch a DVD by myself. I used to do the scrapbooking thing, alone, or with friends. Blogging has taken over that hobby. It is a lot cheaper and less messy. (That is a whole different post).

So if you are wondering how I have the time to complete a project like this, (it took me like 2 hours). It's because it's Saturday night. And I had fun. And even though I should have been folding laundry, it's my night off. This is what time alone is for, and why I look forward to a few hours of it every week.

That was really cool. I will try to do one too. If I can figure it all out. I'm so bad a computer stuff and getting stuff on my blog. I drive Greg crazy sometimes with all the questions I ask.
