Did You Ever??

Did you? Did you ever have one of those weeks when you just didn't feel like doing a darn thing? Well, that's been my week. We had friends from out of town over Memorial Day Weekend - which was a blast by the way!! It is our tradition every year. Our friends come down from Jersey and then we invite more people over on Sunday for a big BBQ. This year was no different and the time flew by so fast. I won't get into the nitty gritty, but I can remember a time when we'd be up sitting on the back deck until 1 or 2 in the morning. We're getting old is all I'm willing to say!

Here's a LO I did commemorating our last Memorial Day weekend together.



But, I've gotten away from my week. I figured after everyone went home on Monday that I'd take it easy for the day. Right??? WRONG!!!

My mom called and reminded me that the rockers she and my dad were getting rid of were waiting for us at her house and would we mind picking them up. Today, if possible. Sure, no problem. But DH decided that he wanted the room we were going to put them in ready for it. Our bedroom. Well, that meant that sleeper chair we were taking out of our bedroom to put in the old nursery had to be moved first. Which also meant that the old nursery had to be cleaned. It had become our room for storing what we didn't know what to do with. So I spent my Monday morning and early afternoon cleaning out that room. What a chore! But it got done. Mind you, I was going to relax for the ENTIRE day. I thought I deserved it after the weekend.

So off we go to my mom's (she lived only 15 minutes away) and half way there it starts to pour down rain. So once we get there we have to wait about a half an hour for it to let up enough to be able to take the chairs out to the cars. Good thing I drive a mini-van. Anyway we get them moved and into the house and they look great. So does the old nursery. But to finish my story, that took all the energy I had - for the entire week!

So here I am Friday morning, realizing that the vacuuming didn't get done, along with the laundry and a few other items. And I'm supposed to be packing for my getaway crop weekend with a couple of girl friends. I'm supposed to leave this afternoon. Needless to say my ignoring the housework Tuesday through Thursday was probably not the best of plans. So today, the beds are made, the laundry is...well, being laundered. One load done and put away. More to come. I still need to vacuum, and pack for my trip. There are not enough hours in my day. Anyone want to come help???

cultured pearl are certainly the best way to express a commitment with your bride. gemstone necklace are increasingly popular and so too are antique engagement rings. Matching pearl ring are important to factor as many metals are available with platinum being the most popular.
