Weekend Review

I hope you enjoyed the long Memorial Day weekend. My weekend started out with a date with my handsome hubby. We went to my favorite Mexican restaurant. I ordered the usual fajita steak quesadilla. One of these days I’ll try something different, but I just love quesadillas! It started pouring like crazy while we were eating, so we sat for quite a while after our meal and just chatted while we waited for the rain to let up.

Saturday I finished a big project that I had managed to drag out all of last week: clearing out the laundry room. There is a very long counter in the laundry room that is perfect for folding clothes on; only about half of the counter is showing in the picture below. Unfortunately, I have a bad habit of not putting the clothes away as soon as they are folded. It doesn’t take long for the clothes to pile up and the room to become messy. Hopefully, with some assistance from my little helpers, I’ll keep that counter space cleared off. I also decided to put the upper cabinets to good use. We have so much closet/storage space in this house that these cabinets have remained empty since we moved in last summer. I finally unpacked a few boxes of my books and am using the cabinets as bookshelves for now. I don’t know why I didn’t do this sooner!IMG_2124_edited-1

Curly Girl and Lil’ Nut found a VeggieTales card game that they hadn’t played with in a long time. They sat at the learning room table for over an hour yelling “Go Fish!”. Such cutie-pies. :)

Saturday afternoon we went to the spring football game and cheered our team to a 58-0 win. Go, Patriots!IMG_2159_edited-1

Sunday was a great day in the Lord’s house. Quite a few of the girls in my Sunday school class were missing, but unfortunately that is to be expected on a holiday weekend. We had quite a few visitors in the morning service, and two ladies joined our church family. One of our former college students, who now pastors a church in New York, was in the area on vacation and brought the evening message. It is so neat to see what the Lord does in the lives of people who go out into the ministry to serve Him! After church Mr. C and I played volleyball with some friends and didn’t finish until 11p.m. That was the first time I’d really played ball in about 15 years, and boy did I ever feel it when I woke up the next morning! We had a lot of fun, though, and hopefully we’ll get to join in again over the summer.

We didn’t do anything special yesterday for Memorial Day. One of the staff members at church is awaiting the sale of his former home in a town about 65 miles from here. My hubby and a few other men spent the day helping him move the rest of his things to our town. I stayed at home, watched a few shows on TLC and HGTV, and supervised Bookworm and one of her friends in the pool. Mickey spent the day furniture shopping with Grandma, and the little girls spent the day at Mimi’s house. It was a nice, relaxing day.

This week will be a busy one once again. This afternoon I have a consultation with Bookworm’s piano teacher to discuss the year’s progress and goals for the summer months. Tonight is the end-of-the-year program and Kindergarten graduation at school. Tomorrow night is high school graduation. Thursday morning we’ll attend the kids’ awards program, and school gets out at noon on Friday with a staff luncheon to follow. I am so ready for the summer!

I AM so jealous of that laundry room. Mine is just a closet. I love all that space.

We always get steak fajitas when we eat Mexican. I think I've had the quesadillas before and they're good, too. We usually split a meal since it's plenty for the two of us with no leftovers!

I LOVE your laundry room! GREAT idea about putting books in the cabinets!
