Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day Weekend was nice and relaxing with just the right amount of work around the house thrown in so as not to feel too lazy!

I was recovering from the extensive last week of school.  It felt as though no matter how long I slept, I was still tired.  I had that draggy, tired feeling all weekend.  Hopefully that goes away soon.

After graduation festivities on Friday night, we woke up Saturday morning and spread bark around the yard.  We were quite pleased with Evan who came out to help unasked.

On Sunday morning I painted the trim around the garage door.  It's something that's been bugging me for quite a while, but just never took the time to do.  See how it's all faded and gone in spots?  It's such a small area, but it brought down the look of the house.

Me and my paintbrush.  Oh so glamorous.  I forgot to take a finished picture.  I need to do that when the sun comes up today!  Painting took me about an hour.  Really, it was not a hard project at all.  It was one of those things that makes you wonder whatever took you so long to get it done in the first place.

We took the boys out for frozen yogurt at Mickeys.  Mine and Hudson's cups.

We bought hot dogs that Eric BBQ'd on Memorial Day Monday.  I brought my hot dog up a level with fancy toppings!  We enjoyed watching the Golden State Warriors win the West Coast Title.  Eric and I did a bit of running around and shopping on Monday afternoon.  I had gift cards burning a hole in my pocket!

The teachers had to go back to work for one more day on Tuesday to wrap up their classrooms.  Then we had a staff party later in the afternoon where we ate, drank, and exchanged Prayer Pal gifts.  I had Amanda and she had me!  She got me a purple bucket (my favorite color) filled with a bunch of purple pampering items like face mask, lotion, nail polish, loofah, etc. It was so cute!

I've got a week and a half until Summer School starts.  I'd like to make some meaningful progress on pulling the house back in order.  I wonder each year why I can't manage to keep my house looking nice all year long.  Then I remember...I'm lazy!
