the latter didn't work out, so i have a pretty completed list. wahoooo!!!
the kids and i spent a lot of time out doing things - little errands, meals out, garage sales, shopping, playing with our buddies. and, we spent a lot of time at home - reading books, playing, getting dirty, and helping cross things off the list. our week was different than usual, but keeping busy helped us all stay friendly. :)
here's how the list ended up:
swimsuit for mama
shorts for thing 1
summer shirts for thing 2
mulch front beds
trim the broken tree in the front yard
start on pages for albums for the kids to have
for those of you who have not been to our house, you have NO idea what a job the garage was. i didn't take before pictures because it was just too embarrassing. this pic is from the house looking out, and it was completely obstructed by boxes. still a ways to go, but progress has been made!
