Mr. R took my camera with him on the road, which makes me sad. He needs his own camera. I had tons of stuff I had planned to photograph in the next two weeks, and now it's not going to happen. Booooo!
I am working Monday and Tuesday, and then I have off Wednesday-Friday. I cannot begin to tell you how relieved I am that I am getting a short break. I have lots planned. On Wednesday, I have a lot of kids outgrown clothing and used books to drop off at Goodwill. I intend to spackle some holes in the wall of my living room. I'm also going to give a deep cleaning of both bathrooms of the house, and possibly fix a few holes in the bathroom of the kids. I may even paint their bathroom if I get real ambitious. I also intend to wrap some of the gifts I purchased so I can stop hiding them in my underwear drawer.
On Thursday, I'm going to paint the wall I spackled on Wednesday and wrap the rest of the gifts if I don't get to them all on Wednesday. I also intend to do a deep cleaning of the master bedroom. This will include a complete dusting, including bookshelves and fan, putting away clothes, and even getting under the bed to destroy the mutant dustbunnies who like to gather there.
Friday is completely different. Both boys have dentist appointments. Then I'm treating them to lunch at Cici's Pizza which is Bucket's favorite place to eat. Then the three of us are going to shop for our angel tree children. Our church has an angel tree where members of the church put up angels with their children's needs. Each child chose an angel and then I'm going to take them shopping. I'd like to think this helps with the "gimme gimme" attitude my kids seem to get around the holidays.
Relax, Missy isn't going without. We're simply going to go on Saturday. We will probably have lunch at La Hacienda, which is our favorite Mexican restaurant ever. The menu is completely in Spanish and we just love the place! Then we will shop for her Angel Tree child too.
I have a feeling I'm going to end up buying a cheapie digital camera. I just can't live for three weeks without my camera. Know what I mean?
