What a Weekend!

The weekend started out with bang, since Friday was our last day of school!!!!  It was a REALLY long day.  I left the house at 7:15 and didn't get home until after 10PM.   At graduation the powers that be had a state congressman give the commencement speech. You know how 'wordy' politicians can be.  I can't tell you how many time he raised our hopes by saying, 'before I sit down...' and then would continue on.  It made for a L-O-N-G graduation.

This morning the first thing I did was get on the computer because two of my friends are in China right now!  Today two very special families received their beautiful daughters.  I am so very happy for everyone!!  

I get teary every time I look at the pictures.  Seeing my friends with their babies does make it seem so much more real.

Today Big Bear and I also began the first item on a long To Do list I have for the summer.  For some strange reason I feel the need to paint, clean, and organize this den of ours, and I want it all done this summer.  Hopefully this will be my last free summer!  

We started right away with the family room.  Today we puttied holes, taped, and took down the border.  (Thank God!)  I have pictures that I was going to post, BUT I left the cord to the camera at school.  I'll have to post at another date.

Tomorrow I'm off to pick up the paint and start the trim work!
