Busy, busy, and busy is what Jim and I have been so far this weekend. We dropped Rebecca off at her sister Emma's yesterday morning, along with pillow, sleeping bag, jammies, 2 changes of clothes, stuffed animals, toothbrush, snacks and a couple of her favorite DVD's. Then it was off to BigLots to do some furniture shopping. Rebecca changed her mind about the poster/canopy style bed. She said she didn't like it. She wanted a little bed, lol. So, I checked on line and found the above bed. It is adorable, and what a job Jim had putting it together. So many screws and nails. It took him 3 hours, lol. We got the bed base for 99.99, the bookshelf head board for 49.99, and the mattress for 99.99. We also got a kids multi-colored folding table with 4 chairs for 29.99. I haven't taken it out of box yet. When I do I'll put a pic of it in journal. BigLots didn't have the sheets I wanted for Rebecca's bed, so after we got home and unloaded the van, I went to Walmart. They had her sheets, regular priced 29.99, but on sale for 17.64. So, in my cart they went. I also found a really bright pink set, plain no prints for 18.99 on sale for 11.94, in the cart they went too. I bought her a new pillow, 5.00. When I got home Jim was almost done putting the bed together. When he finished I made up her bed. She is going to be so surprised when she see's it. I love the drawers at the bottom. I am keeping her extra blankets, sheets, pillow cases in 2 of the drawers. The third drawer I have put her barbies and clothes in it.
I added a couple recent pics of Daniel. Emma cut his hair so short, he looks bald now like his Poppop, lol. And of course there's one with the hat again, lol. I don't know what it is about that hat, but he loves it. Emma said he even wants to wear it when he goes to bed at night, lol. She waits til he falls asleep and she takes it off of him. He has got the biggest brown eyes and longest eyelashes I have ever seen on a boy.
Jim is at the laundrymat right now, doing our laundry. He has to stop at store and pick me up some oil and brocolli too for supper tonight. Making Rebecca's favorite dinner, fried chicken legs, brocolli and macaronni and cheese. She will only eat chicken legs, lol. As soon as I finish with this entry, I am going to get dressed and start unloading the livingroom closet, so Jim and I can sort through everything. My sister Lucys friend Pete is coming tomorrow, so I want to have everything ready for him to take back to virginia to Lucy.
I want to send a shout out to Angies son Eric, who is having a birthday. Happy Birthday Eric. I hope it is a special one for you and you have loads of fun. I will be sending you a card with a surprise in it. Angie is so awesome, she has a big party planned for him. I know he is going to be one happy little boy.
And also, don't worry LJ. I'm not leaving JLand. The thought never crossed my mind. You guys are like family to me, and I'd be heart broken not reading about your lives, and telling you about mine. Last month marked 1 year of my journaling here with you all. And I hope to be here many more years. You guys ROCK, in my book!!!!!! And I love you all dearly.
I haven't heard from poetry.com yet about the IPOD. I will let you know when I do, I promise. Well, I'd better get my tired butt dressed and get to emptying this closet. It's gonna be a longggggggggggggggg day for this task. It took me 3 hours to do the hall closet, and it's a small closet. This livingroom closet, I can put a Rebecca's bed and a dresser in it, it's huge. But no, I am not putting my child in the closet to sleep, no way. lol.
Gonna go, take care everyone, enjoy your sunday.
LOVE YOU LOTS...........................CINDY
