Gearing up for another *girls* weekend..
Fickel, Mindy, and I are going to be heading to the middle of cornhusker land next weekend. We are attending a weekend long crop, and possibly state basketball tournaments, good luck Justin! I can't wait. I enjoy my time with these two immensely.
I have taken a personal day next Friday, as we head down on Thursday night. Thanks to momma pat and papa for helping get the kiddos to school on Friday. I love you both very much!
We (ok, I) spent the weekend cleaning out my house. Ugh. This job SUCKED. (Don't you just love my advanced vocabulary? lol) I cleaned out the kids rooms, the two hall closets, most of the toys in the front room(1 tub is left, mostly stuff Riles' plays with everyday), and the entry way. My big ole body hurt in places I didn't know I had! It feels so good to be decluttered. The next item on the agenda is cleaning out cupboards and scrapping stuff. I am going to wait to do this during our week long spring break. My kids will be in school, chris will be working, and I will be home cleaning and scrapping! Wahoo. This summer chris will tackle the outside.

I am in the beginning stages of weeding out 3000 children's books. Yes 3000! I have made a dent, but not a big one. (I will donate these items to a homeless shelter for their family area.) I am addicted to ordering books from Scholastic! lol.. I loved book orders as a child as well. Reading was and is one of my favorite hobbies. Both of my children love to read as well and I am so happy this is one of the things i can enjoy with them.(just never, ever take us all to a bookstore together!) It never mattered how low I was, as long as I had a book to read, the world was a better place. In fact, if I haven't read a "good" book in a while, I actually start feeling aggitated.
I wanted to post some pics of the last girls weekend with my sisters. We had a blast, and can't wait for our next adventure!
peace, love, and happiness (hey, isn't that a song?)

looks like you are gonna have a great time. fun fun fun! i was thinking that was coming up super soon.

congrats on all your cleaning. tough job, but someone has to do it and most often it is the female unless you are married to my Dad, he tends to help declutter. lol.

Yeah, the house looks great, Wendy. Thanks for showing me that little Cricut program on your computer. I'd love to buy one for Karen....after she gets her new computer.
