Since I would be in Florida right now had we not had to cancel our trip my dad and I are going to spend the weekend together instead. I have been looking up fun things to do with him. I am heading over to his house after the kids get home and J gets home and everyone is settled. I am hoping to sleep in tomorrow since I would get woken up by the 3 kids and husband that need to get to school and work. I am praying that Peanut cooperates with me and sleeps at least until 8 like she did this morning. My dad and I are going to have lunch and catch a matinee (haven't decided which movie yet). Then I have to come get the kids from school and get ready for the night. J and I are going on a date per my dad's instructions! Then we are meeting my dad and step mom at their church for dessert and a singing program. Then I'm going to go with my dad back to his house and J have all 4 kids :) I am hoping that I will get a great non kid night sleep and I will for sure get to sleep in on Saturday. Then I am looking at stuff for my dad and I to do on Saturday together. I'm thinking about heading downtown Chicago and watching a musical (Jersey Boys?) or shopping or something fun kid free. Then we will swing by my house and grab Peanut and head back to my dad's. Are you confused yet? Cause J was when I was explaining this plan to him! We won't see the rest of the family until Monday when they get done with school and work. This is just some ideas that will happen but for sure J and I are going on a date (already have the sitter) and meeting up with my dad and step-mom. Everything else is just stuff I want to do. I won't be on here until Monday night and I'll give you the highlights/rundown of my daddy/daughter weekend and be by to read and comment. I also wanted to say how blessed I am to have family close by. This morning I had a procedure done at the hospital. Roberta (my step-mom) came over and watched the two little ones and my dad took the morning off work to come with me to the hospital. I was totally thinking I was going to have to be there all by myself but he came with me. I'm so blessed. Then he treated me to breakfast before he headed to work.
