Cool weekend, found cord

My weekend went much better than my week! (Thanks for the hugs, well wishes and encouragement.) I got all the kids out of the house on time Saturday morning to get Amber to her practice SAT by 9 a.m. ... yes, I had to get up at around 5:30 to make this happen and be sure to have everything the smaller kids needed to go with their dad.

Once we met their dad at around 11:30 a.m. I sat in the van to read my magazines and relax while I waited for Amber to come out. I talked on the phone and generally enjoyed the quiet and nice weather... well, while it lasted: It got dark pretty quickly and began storming, but prior to that the kids were outside playing and enjoying the day.

After Amber was finished we got something to eat, caught an excellent sale at Goody's (up to 90 percent off), grabbed a drink at Starbucks and ran a few errands. I had a reward from eRewards and we got two movies, two Cokes and a tub of popcorn (for free!) at Blockbusters.

We rented Awake and No Reservations. Both were excellent movies and I'm glad we made good choices. Oh, before we watched the movie we did a little dance routine that we do for exercise to Beyonce's song. It's pretty fun AND funny.

Today we slept in, relaxed, chatted, talked on the phone and I got some cleaning done. Oh, and I even got a chance to do 30 minutes of yoga this morning.

I finally finished laundry on Friday. Remember I didn't get a chance to finish laundry last weekend because of the plumbing problem. I started laundry on Monday the 24th. This is what the laundry room looked like before:

It was actually worse than this, but I forgot to take a picture.

If you look closely at the two pictures above you'll notice my little assistant! She was very helpful with licking clean laundry, sucking on dirty laundry and tasting the vent in the floor!

During (about halfway through):


Isn't this great? You can now see what the room really looks like!

Whew! I'm so glad laundry is done; however, I'll start the whole process over again on Wednesday! As you can see I found the cord to the digital camera so I hope to be posting more pictures soon! ... I hope you had a good weekend as well.
