Today was the day of rest here. After this weekend, Jason and I were exhausted! The living room looks great, but it was a lot of work - especially for our first REAL diy project. But it was really fun to just be with each other without the interruption of - gasp! - football. Yep, the Packers are out. Oh, well. It's just a game, right?
Anyway, here are in a new week! Did you check out the menu? It's pretty easy and fabulous, I think :)
Andrew has been such an AMAZING helper lately! I have yet to make the chore cards...I'm getting the laminating stuff tomorrow. I have some cute mini clip boards that I'm going to modpodge some boyish paper on. I got those at the Dollar Store - they are really cute and the perfect size.
The toys have finally been cleaned out. Now it is just a matter of adding to the consignment sale, ebay, or donation lists. And speaking of ebay! I made a few sales, so I am sending out some shipments tomorrow. Awesome.
Book Update! Woot! I am so close to finishing The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks! YAY! I think I will actually get it "read" by Thursday's school pickup. And my other read, The Innocence of Father Brown by GK Chesterton is almost done, too. I'm thinking this weekend on that one.
Other book updates: The boys are back in their routine of having a story before bed. We finished The Adventures of Little Bear and have been reading a Dr. Seuss book each night. I'm going to finish reading Winnie-the-Pooh this week, too. Once we finish the book, we will watch the movie!
