How I spent my Saturday

Last night, The Kids went to a "lock-in" at school, which meant they stayed up ALL night. I picked them up just before 7:00 this morning. Noticing how light traffic was at that hour, I dropped them home and decided it was the perfect time to go grocery shopping. The Husband and I knew the kids would sleep most of the day.

After my trip to the grocery, I decided I would go off again on my own, this time to Target. It was such a wonderful one bugged me to buy anything! I grabbed what I went for and wandered the aisles aimlessly.

Finally, I knew I had to go back home. The Husband had called. Apparently, The Girl was on the floor in the bathroom throwing a fit because she did not feel well. (What did she think would happen if she stayed up all night?! I knew she'd be queasy from a lack of sleep, but she refused to get in her bed. Whatever!) When I got home, I went to check on The Girl. She was asleep on the bathroom floor. She had not been sick (I didn't expect she would be) but I was not going to wake and/or move her!

I went outside to help The Husband with his newest project. In one BEAUTIFUL morning/afternoon, we took this:

and made it look like this:

Pretty impressive, huh? It's amazing what you can do with some primer and a handful of cans of spray paint! Personally, I'm amazed at the transformation. I think it looks great. I did all the taping and even painted the tailgate and right rear quarter-panel!

After we finished that, The Husband fixed the steering.
Believe it or not, it was *still* light when we finished everything, so The Husband went out back to practice shooting his bow. The Boy woke up around 12:30 and has been playing with a friend ever since. The still asleep! I refuse to wake her. I figure at this point, she'll simply sleep through the night!
Hope you had as productive a day as we did!


  1. Looks like a fun, successful day. Hope everyone is all rested up tomorrow!

  2. Bless her heart.... I'd be wiped out too, and it would probably take me 6 days to recover!!!

  3. Is this a replacement or an addition?

    BTW...I like the new layout especially sans music! -- I always had to turn down the volume, especially when DH was watching something.

  4. This post shows the information which is close to standard.
