Race to the End

Ah...end of the school year. So calm. So peaceful. You know, there's nothing to do. HA! Let the race begin!

But before the race, we are relaxing and enjoying the gorgeous weather. Saturday, we went on a bike ride with the kids, Lindsey and I hit some garage sales, and I found a cute little settee at the thrift store. Jeff wasn't too thrilled about the furniture purchase, but when he saw how happy I was with it, he held his peace. Good man. He and the older kids are fishing today and just the gas for the fishing trip was almost double what I paid for my little loveseat, so I'm not feeling bad about it. Besides, it has cute tapestry fabric with quaint street scenes of what I think is supposed to be France. It must be idealized, because there's no trash or crowds, but I like it. So I'm borrowing my friend's carpet cleaner and it'll be good to go. Besides, once we move into The Furrow we'll need it (We were going to call the house The Burrow, but didn't want to infringe on JK Rowling's copyright;), so the Furrow it is;) So in ten days we'll actually have two living areas again. YEHAW! Sure, the house is ugly, but I can't wait. Just having a family room separate from the kitchen, and homework area with separate places to send the kids when they get noisy and/or ornery is such a blessing. I MISS my house in Ohio. Sniff. It still hasn't sold.

Anyhow, I'm off to take the boys to the park and completely blocking out the packing, cleaning, three dozen cupcakes to make, set up for the school musical production, cub scouts, and everything else I have to do this week...starting tomorrow.
