Monday, Monday

We had a good weekend...nothing exciting though.

Saturday Mom and I went yard saling. I got a few things...best buy was a boxed set of the Lord of the Rings books for $2.00...in the box in like new condition! I also bought a pizza stone and pizza cutter (wheel) for $3.00...new in box. And I bought a game for Ben for $1.00...still in plastic wrap. It was a memory game of super heroes. I guess it's considered a smaller child's game, but he and Jamie and Raven have had a blast with it!

Saturday afternoon we gave our dog, Suzi, a haircut and a bath. She did pretty good. We took her to PetSmart last month for a haircut, so this was just a trim. Still, we had about half a grocery bag full of hair come off of her! She is a lot easier to bathe now! I also gave Neal a haircut. :o)

Oh, Friday night Ben went to a birthday party and sleepover, and Neal went for part of the party. So I took Beth, Raven and Jamie out for pizza and we rented a couple of movies. We rented The Water Horse and Game Plan. I wasn't familiar with either of them, but we enjoyed them both. I actually watched Game Plan twice (well, kinda...I fell asleep the second time around).

Sunday was church, naps and movies. Aahhhh....

Today I had J and R read to me, and we all did some chores. Then we went to the pool for four hours. Several of my friends (and the kids') were at the pool, so it was very enjoyable!

Beth ended up going home with one of her friends to spend the night, so we'll get her at the pool tomorrow.

Tonight we'll have a nice, relaxing evening!

Neal worked longer today, but not quite a full day...probably 7 hours. He's coming along!

7 hours? That's great! Way to go Neal!

As to the bargains, that sounds lovely! I haven't been to a yardsale in ages... which is both good and bad. Good for not adding more "stuff" to our house, but bad b/c I think it's such fun and I :heart: good deals!

I'm glad to hear that things are moving along. Tell Neal not to push it too hard! Are you all settling back into a rhythm of life?

Jeremiah 29:11

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
