Weekend Fun

Good morning! (Well, almost afternoon). :)

Did you have a good weekend? We did! Thank goodness we are all over the HORRIBLE flu! That was one miserable week. We didn't have enough "sick buckets" to go around. (Not really, but you get the idea)

Saturday I participated in the city-wide garage sale. I guess I did ok, but was really surprised to find that people weren't grabbing up all of the 25 cent shirts I had out. There were quite a few BRAND NEW WITH TAGS shirts (from places like TCP) that I marked at 25 cents and people just weren't buying. It sucked. I am really disappointed I didn't sell more. I closed up shop at 11am. I was pretty disappointed, the kids were about done with it and I just felt the need to move on. I am NOT a good garage saler seller. :p I hate it. lol.

Yesterday we went fishing and I actually got burnt. Yes! A sunburn. I know, I know, imagine that on my pasty white skin. SHOCKER. It was a beautiful day and I could have easily stayed outside for hours and just laid there in the grass...but did not. Homework, dinner, cleaning etc were screaming at me. All of the things that I had neglected from last week. blah blah blah, A mom's work is never done!

I thought these flowers were just gorgeous yesterday. I wish I had had my camera and not just my cell camera. :)

This week is going to be busy with me trying to catch up on everything and get a few projects that I have half done, completely done. What do you have going on for your week?

Rainy Saturday

Good Morning!

Hurricane Isaac has been in force for a few days now. Luckily where I live, it isn't near any of the places that will get/have gotten hardest hit. We have actually gotten rain here yesterday and now today. I have heard that we will be getting anywhere from 3-5 inches TODAY! Wowsers. That is a lot of rain considering we haven't seen rain for weeks on end.... I have to say, that except for the issues it causes me with my allergies, I am LOVING a lazy Saturday because of the rain. :)

I can NOT wait for John to get home. I love having a 3 day weekend! Although, for him, there is no such thing usually. :( He will still have to work Monday. But, that's ok, we need the "extra" money. 

I mentioned on Thursday that I was back in school. I am finally going to go for my Legal Studies degree. I would like to work as a Paralegal for a small law firm that deals with Consumer Debt and Bankruptcy. I love that sort of stuff. I don't want to work full time because I want to be able to be home for my kids for the most part. John has been offered a few times now to retire early, since he already has 30 years in at his job, but because our kids are so young (and really, he is, too, in the grand scheme of things) we can't afford for him to. Plus, the health benefits are SO worth him working. My income will be to help supplement for when he does actually retire. Does that make sense? I am sure some of you are going, WHAT? Just exactly how old is this guy? He's not 50....yet. :) He has only had one job his whole life and this is it. 

Anyhoo, gotta think of our futures and our kids' futures. What are you doing to prepare for the future?
