I cleaned my bedroom closet, got rid a bunch of stuff I never wear. Found some new linens on sale at Bed, Bath & Beyond to spruce up the bedroom. I took the dust ruffle in the 'bed in a bag kit' and made a valence for the window. Tore down the very dated wallpaper border and fluffed up the new pillows. I looked forward to snuggling in the "new" bed and reading last night, but fell right to sleep instead. Got the van back yesterday. I had cleaned and vacuumed it before I took it to the mechanic. I emptied out all of Joe's "stuff" -- books, fencing helmet and epees, sneakers -- all the assundry items that he "stores" in MY van. I bought a new cup holder and a little car smelly thing from Yankee Candle. My grapefruit scented van, with new struts, breaks and cooling system, is so fun to drive now:) Best of all, I jumped back on my diet yesterday, so I feel so much better. I know, it's not supposed to be a diet, it's a way of life. But right now, it feels like a diet.
Dan called yesterday and we had a chance to really chat and get caught up. He's working weird hours this week, and with the two-hour time difference, it seems we've all but lost contact. The best part was this morning, when I got to spend the first slice of the day with my 2-year-old nephew, Tommy. My brother was taking the rest of the family to the airport, so I arrived at his house in time to see my sleepy, bed head boy in his pj's as he first woke up. We watched Sponge Bob while Tommy ate his cheerios, read "You're My I Love You" while he sat on the potty, and then played baseball in the back yard, collected rocks and smelled all the rose bushes until his daddy came home.

It's been a busy, but productive week. And this weekend, especially, has been very productive. The kids were occupied playing with friends and I found myself with the entire day, yesterday, so I jumped on some projects that have been waiting on my list.
