Happenings around here….

Well, I have been sick it seems forever. This cough really has gotten me down. I have only been sleeping a total of about 4 hours each night sometimes less. I really don’t want to go to the doctor, but, I am probably going to. There was only school this week 2 days. We love it. Just don’t love all the snow and ice outside. It would be alright if it was just snow, it is the ice that well, it ruins the snow.

My girls went to their first dance last week. It was a 3R’s Valentine Dance. It was to support the 5th graders going to camp and they made a bundle. Over 400.00. If you don’t know what the 3r’s are it means Respect, Responsibility, and Restraint. This is a motto at our school. So, both of my girls are paid for. Thanks to the amazing selling ability of Stacy throughout the year. lol. We just need to get them boots. They leave Tues. They are going to Glen Helen which if I can find a link to it I will link it. They are coming back Friday. They will be doing all kinds of things that are cool. I am not sure how much Stacey will like it. She is excited to be going but, well, she is a girly girl and I really don’t think that once she gets out there she is going to like the fact that she can’t reapply her lipgloss every few secs. So pray for them that they are safe and pray for me that I don’t hyperventilate while they are gone. I am really uneasy about them going. I don’t know why. Maybe it is because this is their first real trip away with people other than family. But, Stacey and Harley are going together so, I find some comfort in that.

Laundry is going, dishes are done, everyone is still asleep, even the dog. So, I am enjoying the quiet around here. Probably not for long though.

Today we have plans of decluttering our house. I suggested it to hubby because we aquire alot of useless things. Somehow someway, and I am feeling claustrophobic at the moment. I want to see about 70% of it gone. We are going to be going room to room and just getting rid of stuff. Freecycle is going to love me today. Although I really don’t see anyone coming out in this mess but, you never know. The garbage man might love us next Friday too. He’ll get his money’s worth I tell ya.

I also need to make a couch cover. I have just the right material in mind. I hope hubby goes for it. and I need to make 2 curtains for the side windows. Mikayla has torn up the blinds and I am afraid she might get caught in them. I have been keeping them up and I really don’t like people seeing into my house in the evening hours. So, that is on the agenda too. I hope I at least get half of the stuff done that I want to this weekend. High priority is the decluttering and the curtains. The couch cover can wait. I really don’t want it to but, it can.

Well, that is what is happening today. Or, this weekend rather. Hope everyone has a great weekend and remember to lean on the Lord. Be blessed.
