Fun Day with DH and Friends
Sunday, August 22, 2010
My DH and I went to Church and Sunday School this morning then went to a friends house. The four of us went out to eat at Cracker Barrel, and I was bad. After stuffing ourselves we went to see "Hello Dolly" at the local theater. Wow, it was good! Then back to church for meetings.
We don't do things like this enough. It seems to be work, work, work for us trying to get ourselves organized in our new home, caring for things for my Mom, making regular trips for 3 1/2 hour drive to visit his mother in a rest home every two weeks, doing our volunteer work, doing payroll and schedules for the family business, and on and on and on. We need to chill and have more days like this so we can recoup and de-stress and revive ourselves.
We have asked his mother to move near us but she says she is familiar there and as long is she can communicate her feelings she gets to chose where she stays. It kind of gets us away for a couple days as well.
I have been working with flylady.net to get myself into routines so to declutter my life and home. I am making progress since I have been overwhelmed with the garage and basement full of boxes. Moving all my stuff, his stuff and his parents stuff into one house is a MESS. Thanks to the flylady the upstairs main house is done and not bad and have the routines to keep it mostly clean and straight. The basement area is another matter. GARAGE SALE soon to be coming!
