Okay, so it is not like me to not update daily, but I have been a little busy. So, here is a small overview since Wednesday. I sent Kylan to school Thurs. even though he just had surgery, but I had no sitter and it is so hard to get a sub. right now at the end of school. He did fine and they put cotton in his ears for when they went outside. I didn't let him play in his ballgame that night, I just felt that school was enough for one day. Friday was busy, we went and got Kylan's haircut, then ate Chinese, and ran a few errands as well as a small amount of shopping. Saturday morning, mom and I went to a make-up party and did a small amount of damage money wise, but it was worth it, yay new make-up! Then we spent the rest of Sat. cleaning house, which was much needed, though I didn't get as much accomplished as I had intended too. I am in a very Spring cleaningish (if that's a word) mood, though I HATE cleaning. I do like a clean house though and everything in its place, I just hate to actually do it. Today we went to am and pm church as usual, but also had a housewarming to go to. We also ran to the flea market. I am so excited though, b/c I got an entertainment center for my office. The office is just a oddball room that is very open with nothing in it. I have been wanting to have a wall unit built for some time now to get some of Kylan's games/clutter out of his room. Plus I thought is would help Kylan better organize his things to wear he would have easy access to his things without us having to drag stuff out of the top of his closet. Bless his heart, you couldn't even wade in his small closet. So, anyway, at the flea market this entertainment center was priced with each of the three units at $65 each. They could be used individually or side by side all together. Well, I guess I have inherited a small amount of my moms flare for bargaining, b/c I thought hmmmm, I wonder if they would sell me all three pieces for $150. Well, my sweet dad was nice enough to go ask for me, and the owner happily obligaged. Now, don't get me wrong, this center isn't the highest quality made, but for now if will work terrifically. I should have taken before and after pictures of Kylan's closet and the office, but I didn't think about it. I was just so excited to clean it out and start placing stuff in the new piece that I didn't think about it. I did not get completely done tonight, but if feels great to get a good start. My biggest goals for summer vacation are to go through every room in the house and clean out and get rid of what is no longer needed. Well see how far I get....though I am pretty motivated it is hard to find somewhere to store the stuff until I can have a yard sale.
