It started out with a surprise for my hubby. After he left for his internship on Monday, I packed the kids up and took them to my MIL's house. I came home, tidied the bedroom, put the new sheets on the bed, set up about 40 candles, and then texted him.... "Do you think you could come watch the girls while I take Bean Boy to the MD. I think he has strep." So wonderful Hubby texted when he left. It was a little too early... I hadn't gotten all dolled up yet, so I texted, "Bean Boy is begging for popsicles, would you pick some up on your way home?" Boy was he surprised when he walked in and found me all dressed up and no kids! I had pre-purchased movie tickets through Fandango so off we went; then out to dinner, then home where he finally saw the bedroom and the massage oil I bought for him. It was a great time... I can't remember the last time we had a date that lasted that long...usually it's just dinner!
While the date was great, the entire next day, home alone, was ahhh! I got a lot of school planning done, a nap, and some piddly stuff...I really need more days like this! I know you all just think I'm forgetful, and I am, but I truly don't know the last time I had the house to myself for more than a short time! Even the short times are rare!!!
So Wednesday's plan was to clean out the school room... apparently, I really didn't want to, cause I got started in my laundry room. It took almost all day, but the girls and I cleaned out, organized, pitched stuff, and wiped off everything... we even moved some of the furniture around. I took a load to Goodwill and have a bag for the consignment store. It looks beautiful in there!
|Very spacious... my Hubby built this room for me!|
|He built these shelves too!|
|We soaked the crayons in ice water to help loosen the wrappers. It took about 40 minutes to get the wrappers off all of our crayons! The kids were very patient with the process, and I was surprised and glad!|
|The girls peeling, peeling, peeling! Notice the empty chair...|
|He's ba-ack! And as silly as ever!|
|I can't believe how long they stuck with it!|
|That's a lot of crayon wrappers!!!|
|That's a lot of crayons!|
|Melting, melting, melting! It took FOREVER!!|
|Then we got some votives poured... please ignore the dirty pan of grease! LOL!!!|
|Tada! I did some layered ones too in glass jars, but didn't take pictures...|
I'm off to work for the weekend! Have a blessed weekend!
