Whew! What a weekend!

So much for sleep and rest! This was definetly not a lazy weekend. It was a BUSY weekend. Thursday night we stayed at my mother in laws house, then Friday I had to go and do my granny's hair (that's a weekly occurance). The rest of Friday was filled with errands and other things that I only get a chance to do when I'm not in school. Friday night was book club with my wonderful girlfriends. Saturday we spent the whole day cleaning the house and getting ready for friends to come over. We had 5 other couples and their kids over to the house. We grilled hamburgers and hotdogs. Good food and good company! Can't beat that!

Today I had to meet a lady to pick up some blank canvases. I'm painting some canvases for a local consignment sale called Duds For Doodlebugs (www.dudsfordoodlebugs.com). You guys should check it out. It's really cool and I usually get some good stuff for the kids! I also had to go help my mom take care of something and then write a grammar lesson plan. I just finished that up and now I'm about to head to bed.

These next 2 weeks are going to be busy busy! I've got homework out the wazoo, midterms, and 2 sets of lesson plans due. If I can just wade through the mountain of stuff that I have to do over the next 2 weeks, then I will have 10 glorious days off! Not to say that I probably still wont have some school work to do over spring break, but I wont have to actually go to school. That's something right?

Nighty Night!

Ready for the weekend.

I need a break. I'm tired, I'm overwhelmed, and I just wanna sleep.

I am so ready for spring break it isn't funny. Of course, who knows how much rest I'll actually get during spring break. I have a birthday party to plan for Izzy and my mother-in-law wants us to take the kids on a little mini vacation somewhere. I've also volunteered to help my mother start cleaning her attic out.

I guess I'll sleep once I graduate. :)

Jimmy has had the hiccups for about 15 minutes now and it's starting to get on my nerves. :)

Old Friends

It's really nice to finally be hanging out with some old friends. We've been back in MS for almost a year and a half and haven't gotten back into the swing of hanging out with our old friends. We've seen one couple 2 weekends in a row and I just love them. They've got an adorable baby and Baxter and Izzy just mauled him all evening. They were in love with him (or her as Izzy called him all night). :)

We used to have a dinner club with a few couples that we were really good friend with before Jimmy joined the Air Force, and I'm hoping to get that going again. We used to get together every Sunday at someone else's house, but I think I'm going to try for once a month. Everyone is so much busier these days with real jobs and kids and such.

It's just nice to have friends down here again!

Procrastination at it's finest.

I am a procrastinator. I notoriously put things off until the very last second. In this case, I put off cleaning out my car until we could barely get into in. Toys, clothes, papers, and maybe even a kitchen sink were starting to take over. So today, I decided to embark on the daunting task of cleaning it out. Let me tell you, I wish I hadn't let it get that bad. I have just spent the past 2 hours cleaning said car.

I had 2 Wal-Mart bags full of trash, an entire load of laundry, a Christmas present that was lost before Christmas even came, unused Christmas decorations, several bags of toys, lost shoes, and lots of stuff that I had bought and have since forgotten about. I spent at least an hour going "I forgot I bought that" and "So that's where that has been".

Baxter went with Dad to run some errands, and when he gets back, he may feel like it's Christmas all over. I found stuff the kids haven't seen in months. Izzy has been occupied since I pulled the very 1st load of stuff out.

Of course, now the problem is all the stuff that was in the car is now in my house. So the house needs cleaning.

Oh well, maybe I'll get to that in another couple of months! :)
