Happy Mothers Day.
Saturday began with 8 hours of work, although somehow I miss read my mind or my clock and was 15
minutes late..A-DUH!!! I also double scheduled myself for next week. How can someone who ONLY works a few hours a month get it so WRONG???
It was however, late or not an EASY 8 hours that I will gladly see in my paycheck next Thursday. I work today as well,...and tomorrow and Wednesday and Friday. I thought I was working Thursday...but that is the day I messed up. At any rate I will be working a lot, and I have to shove in a lot quickly for todays blog.
First up..Happy Mothers Day!!!
I was blessed with several gifts on Mother's Day. Both the material and with people I love.
My Mother's Day STASH!!! Yes, that is 3 Benjamin' s....everyone already knows I will NEVER SPEND IT ALL ON MYSELF....we will simply ALL be blessed with a little extra cushion this week and next.
But let me back track just a little. I think I offered up some of my Friday...well here is a little end result from my cleaning and organizing too.
It will never stay like this. I do have another problem on my hand however. Apparently basketballs need baths in bathroom sinks and they bounce at vanity mirrors of their own FREE will.
We now have a broken bathroom mirror. There is no way to simply replace the center mirror. I am feeling more and more like the "Crack" house. I should take a picture of the old toilet seat holding the broken fence door up on the side of the house, or the mattress and sand filter we have not been able to dispose of sitting on the side yard for about three years....YEP!!! WE ARE WHITE TRASH...nothing against those who can relate...I say it proudly...but I am NOT PROUD!!! Truth is we have A-LOT to do.
We did make some movement and were the last house on the block to mow the grass....but we have much work to do as of yet.
>>>>>WOW I sure do DRIFT.. Saturday after my 8 hours I was whisked away to a nice dinner at UNO's with the Boys.
After dinner we stopped at a carnival in the parking-lot of a K-mart....(I am not going to say a thing, but does anyone else think that is ODD???)
The boys loved it and after some rides, we ATE the biggest FRIED DOUGH ever. I had some pictures on my phone, but they didn't load. I'm not sure why.
After ALL that fun...Mark went to The Turning Stone to meet up with friends and I went to bed...I was pooped!!
Mother's day was amazing. The weather was perfect for coffee and newspaper reading on the patio, which I enjoyed. Then church, which was AMAZING and the first service in being TRANSFORMED and a nice BRUNCH at Denny's. (Nearly everyone else in the world thought so too, it was PACKED).
After Brunch we took the dogs for a walk and to the dog park. Some signs of spring along the way..
After some park, some back yard cleaning, and some relaxing... Mark and I searched out a new Vanity at Lowes. I always feel so HANDY when I am at places like Lowes..Like I can suddenly build my own house from the ground up. It always seems so doable when at the store...of course we all know I am not even close to being SKILLED...I asked the check out clerk if Lowes offers any classes? He looked at me like I was from space. He had no idea, and his friend he asked was just as clueless. The only thing he could say was that his parents had learned to tile here once... Mark and I had a good laugh about the whole thing, maybe we will never become BOB the Builder, but it is fun to imagine we could.
Pretty busy week, now I have to DRESS appropriate, no sweats today for work. I do not miss having to dress up and quite enjoy spending entire days wearing the same thing I could have easily worn to bed the night before...(did I mention I am not proud of my Trash status?) Anyways I am off...TTFN
