Finally, we are enjoying our yard. It has stopped raining and we can actually get out there and do some work. Well, big tall hubby is doing most of it since I can't bend over to do much. I know I will be wishing for rain soon especially since it was almost 100 yesterday!!! The kids are loving it: playing in the sandbox, running barefoot in the grass, spraying each other with water bottles, such bliss. I love warm weather.I still haven't found the time or the energy to take this thing apart and try to fix it. Ugh. Just looking at it makes me tired. I swear right after I posted about how much I loved it, the dang thing just collapsed. Piece of crap.
I did get all this stuff (spring and Easter decor) put into the correct storage tubs. But I didn't get any summer stuff out. Maybe this week...
Like most of you bloggy mommas, I am feeling the push of the end of the school year. I cannot believe it is here already. I have tons to do. I really thought I was on top of things but honestly when Zoe broke her arm I had to just stop and take care of her. She only has three more days of school and I want to make sure we give her teachers each a little something. So that will be what we are focusing on this week. She is also receiving a special award this week at the awards assembly, I will let you know about that of course. In between running around getting gift cards and gifts I will also be getting ready for her dance recital (she is going to try to dance with her broken arm) and family visitors this weekend. AND I have two little boys who are really energetic, they definitely do not understand the meaning of "rest" who will be needing me. Whew, see what I mean, this week is kind of scaring me a bit.
my things to do:
- clean house for visitors
- shop/plan meals for crazy busy weekend of dancing (three recitals, three days!)
- get all teacher end of the year gifts together
- repair and put away that dang coat storage thingy
- laundry, gobs of it
my menus for this week:
- scallops with spinach and paprika sauce
- grilled veggies and steaks with corn and baked potatoes
- salmon (chicken nuggets for kids) and rice
- homemade pizzas
- tacos and taco salads
Have a great week, hope everyone had a splendid Memorial Day.
