Catching up

It's been a busy couple of weeks around here! We're trying to get the house on the market next week, so there was quite a bit to do. The boys are on Easter break now - only 1 day of school this week - they had a SNOW DAY on Monday! Can you believe it?!?! A snow day on April 6th?!?! We got about 6 inches of snow overnight Sunday, but it's pretty much gone now. It's been in the 50s the last 2 days, and supposed to stay there through the weekend - Yeah!!

Other than work, school, and de-cluttering the house, we haven't done anything really exciting. I dropped off about 100 books at the library this week. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it might be. I used to belong to one of those "book clubs", and had a bunch of hard-cover novels. I'd read all of them at one point, and wasn't really interested in re-reading any of them. The only ones I kept were those of my current 2 favorite authors -- Nicholas Sparks and Janet Evanovich. Those I'll find a spot for in the 5er - I can read them over and over!

I'm the yearbook advisor at the boys' school, so that's been taking up quite a bit of my time lately - taking pics, getting them uploaded to the company website, and creating pages. We're all done now, so that's a relief. It was fun, though - a creative job! I also spent a few Saturdays "quilt shop shopping" with my mom and my sisters, so now I've got a couple of projects going. Ever since I cleaned up my sewing/laundry room, it's a pleasure to spend time in there!

OK, Tom says I'm not saying enough about him . . . he's been very busy also. He cleaned out and re-organized the garage, and gave my van a thorough cleaning (school is on a dirt road, so it was a mess!). He helped me strip and stain the front door, and sanded and cleaned the deck to get it ready to re-stain. Bryce says he helped with the deck!

Tom has also been getting the motorhome ready for our first trip next week. I hope it warms up a little bit! The campground we're staying at looks pretty nice - full hookups, free wi-fi, and a heated indoor pool . . . which is open! At least next week I'll be able to post some interesting information! We have appointments at KZ and Keystone, and possibly Forest River and Jayco. We recently found out that Jayco makes a toy hauler (Recon), and it looks pretty nice. We've been in contact with a dealer in the area, and they are going to try to get one for us to look at. The boys are looking forward to touring some trailers, but even more about going to Jo Jo's pretzels, and the amish bulk food store! These are Nicolas' favorite stops in Shipshewana! I'll be sure to get some "food pictures", so I can fit in with the rest of the RV-Dreamers! LOL

OK, well I think I've caught up with my posting now . . . tomorrow is baking day, and Easter egg coloring day for me and the boys, and I think Tom is going to stain the deck. Woo! Hoo! Happy Easter, if I don't get back in here before Sunday!

  1. Sounds like things are going well. My DH sometimes thinks I say too much about him LOL. May we both be blessed with quick the quick sale of our homes this year. Good luck and enjoy your outing in the motorhome.
