Catching up Before It Gets Crazy Again

I am so glad to be home today and tending to my house. This past weekend has been a real blast but oh-so-busy. Friday evening was spent doing random things while Chris did the last mowing of the yard for the season, hopefully. Saturday, Chris went to church for a Men's Breakfast and then hung out with his guy friends. I spent the day with Chris' mom baking. That evening we went to church and then came home. On Sunday we enjoyed a breakfast out, playtime at the playground and relaxation at home. The craziness started in the afternoon.

My Dad and Step-Mom came into town for a surprise party for Chris' Mom's 50th birthday. We had a great time with 50's themed decorations, Mexican food, and a delightful Red Velvet Cake. Several of our friends came and it was a wonderful surprise. It was a time of fellowship enjoyed by all. Caleb, our guests, and I came on home and got cozy for the evening. After a little tv we were all pooped and headed onto bed. That time change totally threw me off this year.

This morning we got up early so we could enjoy a yummy breakfast out before Dad and Betty headed home. Caleb went down for a nap when we got back and so did Mommy. It was exactly what a I needed to get me going for the rest of the day. I have since cut Caleb's hair, bathed him, made two loaves of bread dough that are freezing now, eaten lunch, and done two loads of laundry. I still have put those clothes away, though.

My goal is to get the house under control and semi caught up today and tomorrow so I can use the rest of the week to prepare next week's eBay auctions and get ready for our camping trip this weekend. I'll have more on the camping trip later on. Caleb will be hopefully taking another nap soon and I can make some more bread dough (to get ahead on that), put away a laundry, and tidy the house. We'll go to the YMCA in the afternoon and then it will be time for Chris to come home.

Here's to a productive day!
