What an insane weekend – I think I need another weekend just to recover.
Friday: I spent the majority of the day with 75 eighth graders, their parents and sibs watching their production of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, which was awesome, btw. Then I had to get Killian ready for a boyscout overnight camping trip.
Saturday: Hubby and I had to clean out his mom’s house with his brother and five of his six sisters. It was nightmarish and we’re no where near done. There are four generations of his family’s stuff in that house!
During the purging, I broke my favorite sandal and it’s irreparable. Five stores later and way more than I wanted to pay I had a new pair of sandals. Why is it that the shoe manufacturers think all women want to wear high heels. WTF is that all about???
Saturday night, the kids and I went to hang out with my brother and his kids were were in town to celebrate my nephew’s birthday.
Sunday: Took Killian to a boyscout flag retirement ceremony. (Discreetly ogled the hot fire fighters who were standing by. It’s research, people…research.)
Then it was off to my mom’s for my nephew’s birthday party and somehow I volunteered to make the belts, vests and bras for my sister-in-law and niece’s belly dancing costumes. LOL…yeah, I know I said I wouldn’t be sewing for a long time after the RT costumes, but I guess I can’t resist a good costume.
In the meanwhile, I’ve got to get writing. Gotta finish my story for the Legend anthology!
