Monday mornings are always the hardest for me.  No matter how much I try to organize myself and the kids for the week it just never starts off  smoothly.

Anyway today my husband stayed home because it was a holiday.  The Kazakh government last week decided to make Saturday(last Saturday) a working day and then have today off.  apparently people weren’t to happy about the short notice.  They also will have tomorrow off. 

I always like it when my husband stays home from work. I don’t mind having him home.

Well this week we hope to have the house painted and done.  the colors are looking good on the wall that, I really am happy with them.

I’m still counting and still looking out for my gifts.  It’s not always easy to do, especially when you receive news from home about deaths in your extended families and also immediate family problems.  It’s hard to be thankful during these times.
