I hope everyone had a relaxing and enjoyable week-end. I know I sure did!
Sat. morning hubby and I caught up on a couple of necessary errands and then decided to see a movie in the early afternoon. We saw Impossible. It was REALLY good and had me in tears a few times. It was definitely kind of stressful and overwhelming when you saw all these poor people went through, but I would recommend it anyway. After that we grocery shopped and headed home to barbecue some yummy Salmon, and watch a little TV. Just relaxing and un-eventful...just what I needed. On Sunday after church we decided to take the rest of the day and clean our closet (how I have been DREADING this!) and then shampooed both our bedroom and the area rug in the family room with our new Kirby. : ) What a job that closet was! I did manage to eliminate LOTS of clothes I am no longer wearing, and a few other items that I have no idea why I was even holding onto. We have quite the load for good will! There is just nothing like a freshly organized and cleaned out closet for me. (except for maybe a freshly vacuumed or shampooed rug!) Now you have to know that our closet is one of those HUGE walk-ins that is the size of a small room. Seriously, it is just HUGE, which of course has it's definite benefits, but also ends up being an easy place to stick something I can't decide what else to do with. I am wondering how long it might take me to fill it back up with junk. Seriously though my plan is to keep it just like it looks this morning! The rugs came out looking just beautiful! I am soo pleased with my new Kirby, I could practically do a commercial for one.
There is just soo much flu going around out here. It makes me nervous I am not going to lie. I did not get a flu shot and I think it might be the last year I don't get one. My mom did get one thankfully, but I have heard that the shot is not protecting people from one of the big strains that is going around. Have any of you heard that? It is hard trying to keep her away from everyone who has a cold or the flu, but we are doing the best we can. I did take advantage of the fact that my youngest sister has mom today (she will be back around 3) and ran and got some blood work done this morning that my doc ordered 3 months ago! Not sure why I have been putting this off, (guess I just never really want to know if something is wrong!) but I guess I figured I had procrastinated long enough. So now we will see what it is in a few days...sigh. I am to have lunch with my girlfriend this afternoon before mom gets here and how I am looking forward to that. Her sweet mom passed away in December, and this is the first chance we have both had to get together.
I intend to get busy soon with a few things I am going to make for the new baby, and I am re-doing our LARGE picture collage that hangs in our family room. Guess that's about all I have for now. Hope you all enjoy your week! Here are a few pics I thought you might enjoy!
