Good Weekend

So I missed a few days of my 25 days of blogging.  Oh well, it was inevitable.

I had been looking forward to this weekend even more than I normally look forward to weekends (which is obvioulsy A LOT) because after a few pretty busy ones we have absolutely nothing going on and I have a new project I started last weekend and couldn’t wait to continue.  I am pretty good about purging my closet a few times a year and donating clothes I don’t wear anymore and what-not, but there are several household items in all parts of the house that I’ve been holding onto thinking that I will get around to using them or selling them but I never do, so my new project that I started last weekend and am going to continue over the next several weekends is going through every. Single. Room. In the entire house and getting rid of absolutely EVERYTHING that we don’t want or use.  Last weekend I did the master closet, Friday evening I did the linen closet and yesterday I did the master bathroom and my bedside table (and Paul did his and his portion of the master closet).  I still have a long ways to go but I'll do a little more today and just keep doing a little every weekend until I've gone through the entire house.

Friday night the girl's school had a Winter Bazaar. The girls and I went and did a little Christmas shopping.  Then one of their friends came home with us for a sleepover, but she ended up going home at midnight (she lives just a few houses away) because she couldn't fall asleep.  But she came back in the morning for breakfast and played some more.

Yesterday afternoon I took a break from my project to take Kona for a walk.  The weather lately has been gorgeous.  A little cold, but sunny.  We walked on some trails around our neighborhood and it was so nice.

It hard to snap a picture while holding your phone and a leash attached to a moving dog in one hand

After dinner we decided last minute to drive around and look at Christmas lights.  We do that every year, but this was pretty short because the girls were going to a friend's to watch a movie, so we will go out again next weekend and do it right

Today the girls get to go visit a friend who moved away in June but is in town visiting other friends.  That means that Paul and I can watch the Seahawks game in peace.  Except I'm still going to be working on my purging project and hopefully wrapping gifts.
