Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things about R

1. I am tutoring this summer. So far I have a ninth grader who needs a little help with writing. I'm planning lots of cool writing activities to get him excited and comfortable with it.

2. DH and I are having a romantic weekend to celebrate our eleventh anniversary - my sister is taking the kids for the whole time!

3. We will be going out to dinner and to see X-Men 3 (on Nancy's recommendation).

4. I hosted a Passion Party last night - we all had a blast!

5. Not only did I have fun at the party last night, I had a great time planning for it. Ever look up "sex" on Very interesting. ;}

6. We have worked out this week so that DH had two days to himself and I have today and tomorrow. While I did sleep in very late (good thing since I stayed up until TWO yesterday - or was that today?) this morning, I have been called upon to help many times. Granted, watching five kids is very tough, but he is quite a capable guy!!!

7. Tomorrow I will be spending most of "my day" OUT of the house.

8. I think I forgot to give a final update - we have decided to stay at this house instead of moving. Instead of doing the big addition that I would LOVE (too tough to live through with five young kids), we are doing a mini-renovation: enlarging the division between the living room and the dining room and refinishing the hard wood floors underneath the stained wall-to-wall carpet.

9. Got an estimate from someone local on doing the expansion and he said he could do the project next week!

10. I have lots of other painting projects that I think will make a huge difference here that I want to do this summer.

11. It's hard to type and think with a four year old attached to my elbow asking for a turn on the computer.

12. It's equally hard to concentrate with the sound of a baby crying in the other room (even if I'm not the one in charge).

13. I'm going out for the rest of the afternoon!

Heck, my girls are only 5 months and I think as soon as they seem me head to the computer, they cry.

Ugh! Here they go again!
