Wow, what a week. We have one day left of spring break. Good grief what shall I do on summer vaca??? I can't really complain alot. My kids have been good.
On Friday (the 11th), I told the kids if they would help clean the house, we would be able to have a fun week. They were agreeable, but not until I bribed them with $5.00 each. So, by Friday evening, my house was spotless. Including their rooms. If their rooms are clean...you can bet my whole house is. By Saturday around noon, it was a mess again. What is it about this house? I just can't keep it clean. Could it be we live on the lake and everytime we have a cook-out, it's at my house? Could it be it's alot bigger than my other house in Neosho? Could it be it's two stories and I hate stairs? The mystery remains.
We've gone to the movies two times. Tomorrow after church we're going to the Jenks aquarium. I'm excited about that! Should be fun. But the best part about this week? I painted my living room. I went to Lowe's yesterday at 1:00 and by 4 I was painting. By 6 it was finished. And guess what? It looks GREAT! I am so pleased with it. Not like when we lived in Afton and I wanted to sponge paint my bedroom with a really cool burgandy color. It ended up fushia. That's what we get for buying Wal-Mart paint. Never again! Anyhoo, the color is Coffee. We've still got to put the crown molding up and paint the trim, but it still looks good.
Tonight we celebrated my mom's birthday and Mark's birthday. Mark's isn't until next Saturday but his parents are coming in to take us out for dinner, so we celebrated with my fam-damily tonight. He got the entire first season of....get this......Macgyver. He loves it. geez. The guy had his hair cut like Macgyver in high school. A mullet with a side spike. HMMMMMMMM...wonder if my sister and Mark had the same do in school.
I got Mark an awesome present. My great aunt and uncle sold their house about a year ago and moved into 9 tribes. (retirement apartments/cracker box) Well, dad ended up with lots of his stuff in his garage. One of those things being a craftsman tool box. One of the upright, double-decker ones. I had been wanting to get Mark one for a long time, but never had. So I asked my uncle about it. He said he'd sell it to me for $200.00. What's the great deal you ask???? IT'S FULL OF TOOLS. I mean Full! Mark about died when I gave it to him! He said if he had to guess, he'd say it had about $3500.00 worth of tools in it. Yeah Magnet Lady! *pats self on back*
Well, I gotta get to bed. church comes early!!!!! More tomorrow!
