Well, another weekend is upon us. Where has summer gone?? Time seems to be flying by like crazy... it didn't seem that long ago that we were begging for spring and summer to arrive and now it's almost autumn!
I don't have any pics to share of our trip to the antique/art show.... we didn't buy anything, lol. I saw some really nice things but they were way out of our budget and with school starting for 5 kids just around the corner....well, you know how it is. We have had a break with the humidity the past few days, but a few big thunderstorms with lots of wind...yikes! Sunday night was wicked, the storm we got knocked out our power and I couldn't sleep because the lightening was so constant and it was lighting up our bedroom. was so tired by the morning, but hubby was snoring through the whole thing...men, lol.
I have not accomplished much this week except laundry and being the servant to the kids...and listening to "mom" a thousand times a day especially when I'm outta sight, and the continuing bickering and tattle taling, I don't know how my mom ever managed raising us 5 kids and surviving, I have great admiration for her! I love my kids greatly but I can't wait until school starts in just over 2 weeks!
I did manage to paint a bench that we have had for almost 2 years that was sitting in our kitchen and my youngest daughter was helping me sand it, she must have been bored :) I will post a pic tomorrow. It's going to be a boring weekend for us as my husband is working at the Havelock Country Jamboree and he will be gone all day both Sat and Sun and our van needs work on it so I won't be going anywhere. At least hubby gets to listen to some good country music, Dwight Yokam and Ricky Skaggs is playing along with lots of other popular country singers. I don't have any crafts to work on, haven't had a chance to go out and buy anything, lol. I guess I will be searching things in the house to redo. I have a few dressers that need to be reglued and sanded and an old sideboard that the doors need fixed, other than that I don't know what to do. I really need to get upstairs and finish it but I've got nowhere to put stuff and with no closets except the one in our room, it's hard for me to get it done and with no help it's even harder. Once I have everyone in school, I'll find more spare time but it bothers me knowing that so much needs to be done but it's left up to me...
I guess that's it for now, I will try and a pic of my bench up tomorrow and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
