Further Update on the Spring Break To-Do List

Yesterday, I finally felt like I was on Spring Break. I had a friend and her little boy over for lunch, and my house was clean, and I didn't feel like I should be doing something else! It was a really awesome visit.

Here are the updates on my list (completely out of order, but ... whatever).

Knight helped me on Sunday, and we did a ton of housework. The only thing I really have left to do is dust. I hate dusting, even with the Swiffer thingys. It doesn't take much time to do it, but for some reason it's ALWAYS on the bottom of the list and NEVER gets done.

Knight also mowed the lawn and put down some fertilizer/weed-killer/ant-killer (yes, we have lovely infestations of the dreaded fire ants). He finished up just as it started raining. It's been raining since then, so we should have a beautiful lawn soon. He's so cute -- he's loving having a lawn to care for. It's so manly of him. :) This stuff is supposed to work well. The fire ants disappeared pretty quickly, and the ones we could see were pretty sickly. I hope they stay away!

Check on the "Eating Breakfast with Grandparents". We went on Monday morning, and it was very nice. Yummy food and great conversation.

Then, my Granny took me shopping on Monday -- I consider this to be spontaneous because it was not on the Spring Break To-Do List. It's something we love to do together, but haven't been able to do the last several times they've come to visit. I had tossed most of my spring/summer wardrobe last fall because it was just worn out, so she bought me several pairs of capri pants and some new shirts. Thanks, Granny! I'll look fab when I get back to work next week.

We're still planning to have a garage sale on Saturday, but it may be postponed for a couple of weeks. I don't know that I'll have time to get everything together, and I'd rather get Jet's room and the gardening done. Plus, I forgot to put an ad in the local paper.

I have been picking up Jet early, but we have yet to get to the parks to feed the ducks, due to the aforementioned rain. Maybe tomorrow!

I'm on book two of the series I brought home from the library. It's not all that riveting; otherwise I might be further along.

So, there you have it, folks. More pics tomorrow, I hope!

Sounds like a lot so far. And how fun! Spontaneous shopping trip with the Granny! Woot!
