This weekend was packed full of some fun, but mainly all work.

Friday night was BBQ with the family and then a night parade to watch my niece play in the drum line.

Saturday the parents were here and each of us accomplished so much. Ed finished re-wiring the basement and ended up with a good 10-20 yards of wire that was not being used throughout the house. He also mowed the grass (which is a two hour job). Dad patched the ceiling in the garage where the previous owner had cut a nice hole out of it and left it and painted the stairway in the garage. Mom took down the lovely border in our bedroom. I cleaned up the basement and had a nice "to sell" pile, some of which has already been sold. I also chopped down the five bushes at the end of the driveway so now people can see when pulling out!

Sunday was church, nap and more cleaning.

Today Ed pulled/dug out all the roots from the bushes I chopped down, worked some more in the basement, shampooed the carpets, and had a little bon fire in the front yard with gasoline, matches and bees. I picked up Candy Land, dropped off baby clothes and went to the store. We dropped off our very first computer (Ed's Ipod has more memory than that thing did) to Goodwill, dropped off boxes to a family that's moving and somewhere in there ate lunch.

The rest of the week consists of 1st day of school, library, grocery store, deliver meal, soccer meeting, watch the new cute little baby, practice at church (I've been dreaming about ants in my pants), drop off bags of clothes and books, sell more stuff, meet with realtor for the house, get the truck ready to sell and I think that's it.

Now it's time for bed.

Does Ed have ants in his pants too?

HA! That's hilarious about the Ipod vs computer! Crazy.

I don't remember the bushes at the end of your driveway, but then again, I developped a special weaving technique that allowed me to see perfectly fine. Heh. Heh. You know when a five year old asks, "Mom, what's she doing?" that there's a problem...

First day of grade one! Does Sam start tomorrow? It'll be MY first day of grade one, too! He and I can figure it out together! :)

Sounds like some exciting/crazy days ahead! I'm praying for you!

More Sam than anyone. He confiscated the cd you gave me and has listened to it non-stop during his rest time. :)

It is his first day today too! He's already gone, but it's only a 1/2 day, so I'll blink and he'll be home again. :) Hope your first day goes well! Will be praying for you!
