Saturday

It's Saturday morning and I am about to get started on this day. We are waiting on Mark and Matt to get home from camping. They went last night with the Cub Scouts. Next weekend he is going with the Boy Scouts with Tyler. And the next weekend is the Yard Sale. When I put the yard sale on my calendar at the beginning of the year May 2 seemed like a very long time away.

Today I am cleaning up this house big time. It's a mess, but by 4 today it will be in tip-top shape. First I have to find some way to get all the kids out of the house for 5 hours straight. Any ideas? Then supper and then off to buy groceries since I didn't get to do it last night.

So far no big KA-BOOMS so I think we are in the all clear.

I spent last night with Tyler, Abbie, and James watching "Return to Gilligan's Island." Oh, my goodness, that is two hours I will never get back, but I was trying to have a good attitude about it for the kids. They really wanted me to watch it with them. I think even they were disappointed. It was pretty bad. As soon as it was over off to bed for all of us. I read until I fell asleep with the book on my face. Mark says I do this a lot. Well, just rambling now and I need to go tackle the house.

  1. Good luck keeping the kids out of the house. My boys love to ride the 4 wheeler and go cart for hours !! Oh, and if it's hot - I put the hose on the trampoline and they play with the water while they jump. OK, it sounds a little dangerous - but really fun !

  3. I spent this morning cleaning out and organizing books. I have a whole box (overflowing!) of just books for your yardsale. (Next week I will work on clothes. I just know you want more of those to price and display! :-)

  4. Rebekah, I will be glad to take anything! It will all be worth it when I get to rock that new baby girl to sleep each night. I wonder how long will we call her New Baby Girl?

  5. Wendy, I need to get that stuff out to you also. I will be out off your exit next weekend. Is that too late to get you things?

  7. Ah, it is Scout weekend all around here, too. My husband took my son camping. They are having fun. I have two with "croupy" coughs and runny noses. I have done some laundry and dishes today and made a batch of biscotti. I intended to vacuum but that has not yet happened. Talked to my mom. Oh, and I did a couple of postings on my blog. That's it. I really haven't gotten much accomplished. It was late in the afternoon before I was able to get the kids outside. They're still playing, and now I need to start dinner! I have an entire house to organize and clean before my mom arrives for a visit. Where does the time go? I hope your day has been more productive!

  8. Jill and I have first shot at Rebekah's books. I'm bringing me and my money. I think Baby Girl is a great southern name or let's call her Sister. I love that.
