Perfect Weekend

What a wonderful weekend we have had. Last night we went and seen The Grownups at the drive in theatre..Can you actually believe Oklahoma still has one of these in good working condition? Yes we had to have buttered popcorn, nachos, preztals and topped it off with 2 large cokes. The movie was alright, I wasn't very impressed with it myself. It was more of a teenage type movie if I am guessing. I do believe Aaron and Trevor would have laughed all the way thru it.
Today we slept in late for us and then hung out here at the house. I cooked breakfast and washed dishes and then have done several loads of laundry. I never get caught up on laundry, even when I try to wipe it out. Seems like I have a few odds and ends that never get into a load.
Am very proud of our bedroom. I worked hard on it and it shows it. I should have taken before photos of it and posted them. Just didn't want to embarrass myself by letting everyone see the mess it was.
Tomorrow is Aaron's birthday. He wants $200.00 and a 400 EX 4~wheeler. I have been looking everywhere for a good used 4~wheeler. Have looked in Texas, Louisiana and here in Oklahoma. I keep looking in craigslist, and going to ATV stores with no luck yet. I really would like to find one for under $3000.00 but it isn't looking good. The good thing is he has given me a year to find one...that is fair just hope it doesn't take that long to locate one. Trevor just got his new dirt bike several weeks ago. Then Blake got his 4~wheeler not to long ago. So needless to say Aaron is feeling a little left out.
When I asked Aaron what he wanted to do on his birthday he said whatever I wanted to do. WooHoo!! What does moma want to go do...mmm let's see SHOPPING!!! I could take Aaron and get him more school clothes.
Well I guess I will go watch drag racing and see what is happening. Go Force Racing!!! They are my favorites.

Weekend getaway

Thursday Trevor and I went with my friend Kenna and her granddaughter to Norman Okla to a quilt show. We had a great time looking and buying new patterns and material. Trevor tried not to enjoy himself but I could see him taking a real interest in the quilts. We then went to a couple of quilt stores and bought more material. The kids was wanting to eat ..can you imagine that? So we stopped shopping long enough to take them to Chili's for a late lunch.

Friday evening I took Trevor to Ardmore. We got a hotel room with a pool so he could swim and have a good time.

Saturday we did a little shopping then we went to the movies and seen Despicable Me and then we went to Applebee's to eat a late dinner.

Sunday I let him sleep in since we had stayed up till after 2am. Then we got up and I took him shopping for some school clothes. We ended up getting him 3 jeans and 4 shirts. I also bought Aaron 3 shirts and a pair of jeans. I also bought Mr. C 2 shirts. So I felt like today was productive shopping.
I was tired when we finally got home tonight! It was nice to get away and just do nothing. No housework, nobody dropping by to check on us. Nice to relax and reflect and of course shop!
Aaron did not want to go with us so he stayed with his cousin Coby. I tried to get him to go but this really wasn't his cup of tea.

Monday Blues

Today I have a list of things I need to get done around the house. Hope I can at least check off 5 items before this evening. Then I can get busy doing some craft projects I keep putting on the back burner. I want to use my cricut machine and get some die cuts made so I have them ready to use in some of my journals that I am busy working on for swaps.

My to~do list is fairly simple:

Wash dishes and put them away

Make our bed

Vacuum floors (with our new vacuum cleaner Luther bought me last week!)

Clean bathroom

Wash at least 3 loads of laundry. (That would have it caught up!!)

I also would like to go thru one closet and get rid of some clothes I don't wear anymore.

Then I need to declutter the living room.. Called today about getting a big screen T.V. delivered Wednesday. Although I think Luther had a heart~attack when I called seeing as we hadn't discussed it before hand.

My list is short but could get complicated. The more I look around the more I see that needs to be done.

Does anyone have any time saving tips or organization tips they would like to share with me? I would love to hear them.

Lazy Sunday

It has been a peaceful day. We have been watching movies most of the day. Later on we are going to go out to Cherrie and Jackie's to hang out. They came over here for hours yesterday so it is our turn to go visit with them. I am feeling better today after going to the Dr. yesterday. My blood pressure was 180/100. Guess I had better start taking care of my self. I don't feel my age usually but for the last week I felt every bit of 43 years old. I finally figured out what I wanted to name my blog after all these months. So am going to give blogging a whirl.
