Re: Basically it's Saturday

morning - my parents are here again....got here last night just in time for supper

today, I think my mom, the girls, and I are going to go finish back to school shopping for Sadie and just have a girls' day out while the men stay behind and work on the house (their choice, not mine)

I am the younger of 3 siblings, and both my brother and sister had kids before me (although my brother's oldest is almost 7 and my sisters oldest is 6 so they are all close in age), and I still feel they have no time for anyone but themselves. My sister travels home a couple times a year and always wants us to schedule our travel plans around them. My brother barely makes time to see any of us when we are home and never travels to visit us. They both drive me crazy with their parenting styles so it's probably just as well that we don't see each other more. I'm about to say that I'll never spend more than 24 hours under one roof with one of those families until my kids have gone to college. Unfortunately, I can't do that because there would be too many hurt feelings (my siblings, my parents, my children) so I'll suck it up and grumble to DH about it after the fact.

DH went to get me some ink for my printer so I can mail out a ton of pkgs.
I'm sitting here waiting for people to come by and pick up kids clothing from freecycle.
Also contacted my old church/Bible college that is local to us. I am going to have them come and pick up the kids on Sundays for Sunday School, then I will meet them there with the "little" kids Kids are already SUPER excited about riding the "Church bus"

Re: Basically it's Saturday

good morning! My son is kicking me off the computer right away to play roblox.

DH is in the back yard tearing down the fence so that the neighbour can replace it. Bonus- we get to pay half! It's 58 feet. And yes, that's just the one side....

I'm off to get a birthday present for one of Jayden's friends, some zuccinis to make some pancakes ala janine, and bring the dog to my parents since we won't have a fence till tuesday...

Bye, check in with you guys later!

Re: Basically it's Saturday

Well, I thought today was going to be a quiet day with the ILs home to help with DS1 and I was hoping to get some chat time in, but then my college roommate called an hour ago to say she and her fiance were on their way down here to visit for the day. We talked about maybe getting together sometime this weekend, but I hadn't heard from her again so I assumed she wasn't still coming. I guess I better go get things straightened up before they get here!

Heidi! Are you guys having a good vacation?

Sounds like a busy day Courtney!

Please excuse my double chin, but here are some pictures of one of the headbands Adelle! This is the thinner one. I think I like the way it looks in my hair better than the thicker ones, but I am going to play around with them too to see how I can get them to look they way I want them to. What do you think of this one?
