This is what the weekend is all about at our house. Yesterday Lars learned to use a drill press to make holes in the cabinet doors for the hinges:
Meanwhile, my little Anders has been begging me for a tuxedo for about six months now. I have no idea who or what may have planted this obsessive formal wear seed in his mind, but he hasn't forgotten about it and I finally caved in. If he can have a Yoda costume, a Batman costume, and a Buzz Lightyear costume, then why not a tuxedo? Look how proud and happy he is! Awww! :-)
Oh, yes; the bells -- Lars and Anders played in the youth bell choir at church this morning, and now they are at a Kids in Christ youth group Valentine activity with the amazing Ms. Glenda. I have been doing laundry, but still need to get a grocery list together and prune my crape myrtles now that my husband set up my ladder and wheelbarrow for me. When the boys get back from church I'll be listening to piano practice and supervising some math homework that Anders needs to turn in tomorrow, and later this evening I'll put the finishing touches on a dining room drapery design that I'm scheduled to present to clients on Monday afternoon. Once the kids are in bed and their stories have been read, I'll probably wonder where the weekend went again, but really, we've been busy and accomplished a lot.
Next week I have several business meetings, Valentine's Day, the installation of my laundry room granite and *RED* laundry sink, and the long-awaited, should-have-been-done-ages-ago installation of my shutters to look forward to. Anders' class is going on a field trip to the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra this week (I wonder if I should let him bring the conductor's baton my dad gave him for Christmas?) and we have an appointment to have a family portrait taken for the church directory on Wednesday evening after the boys finish choir practice. I wonder if I can squeeze them in for haircuts before the photographer appointment? There are only so many hours in each day.
Have a happy Valentine's Day, everyone. Have a great week!
