The weekend cometh!

Wahoo!!! It's Friday!!! And it's a 3-day weekend...BONUS!! So, what's up for the weekend??

Well....let's see. I have a painting project to finish in my kitchen. I've repainted my bottom cabinets and refinished my countertops. Now I just need to do the top cabinets and window trim. Hopefully I'll get to do that this weekend. It looks a bit odd now since it's green on top and red on bottom...LOL. I'll post pics when I'm done of before and after. :) I'm quite proud of it.

I know my mom wants to take the grandkids to the new playground near her this weekend. I hope the weather cooperates.

I also need to get some filing and cleaning up done with my desk. I've become so unorganized. I want to correct that, as it only makes my life miserable. We've also got to make room for the credit card machine in the shop, and get the office organized.

I just picked up some marigolds to plant in my big hog boiling pot in the front yard. Joy will be looking forward to doing that with me. She loves to get in the dirt...just like her mother.

Other than that, it should be a good weekend. I hope the weather is nice, that'll just be a bonus. :)

Mother's Day

I had the greatest Mother's day, I'm still in shock over it!! My daughter was the PERFECT angel ALL day long! It was so nice!! She must have known it was a special day, she was just so sweet. Helpful, loving, I think the aliens came during the night and switched her! LOL!! Not that she's horrid normally, it was just nice to have a day that she was very agreeable, obedient and pleasant. It was the greatest gift ever!

Sad day...I'm gonna miss you Sandie :(

One of my closest friends at work left today. She's moving to TX be with her grandbabies. The office will never be the same without her. She was my friend, my "work" mom, my sounding board...I am going to miss her terribly. I had the other girls in the office write down their goodbyes, memory, etc on journal boxes, took lots of pictures at the going away party we threw her and put together an album for her to remember us by. I hope she likes it. I wrapped it and gave it to her as she was leaving with a note to open it when she got to TX. I knew she was sad to leave, so I didn't want to make it any worse. I think this way, if she waits to open it, she'll get a good laugh instead of a cry. I hope she has a safe trip.
