My goal for this Spring Break week was to catch up on some movies, sleep, and get ahead of my nemesis, the laundry.
For movies, I’ve watched the third Twilight movie, Up In the Air, The Proposal, Karate Kid (the new version), and Swiss Family Robinson. Have you ever watched Swiss Family Robinson? What a fantastic family movie. M and I watched this yesterday and loved it. When she talked to Matt tonight she could not stop talking about it. You should see it.
For sleep, we’ve been keeping the kids up past their bedtime, and thankfully they have been sleeping in to make up for it. An 8:00 wake up is a beautiful thing. M joins me in bed and turns on the TV while I snooze a bit more. When G wakes up I bring him to bed with us and he will lie in bed with us until his belly growls for breakfast. I think we’ve had three pajama days so far.
Finally the laundry - It is the last thing we want to do on a weekend, and it often ends up in a heap on the downstairs couch. The recent construction put laundry even further down the weekend list since we’ve been trying to get the house put back together. Our couch has now been named Mt. Laundrus. I spent pretty much the entire day on Wednesday folding and putting away laundry. The folding was not as bad as I expected, but the putting away was tricky, especially for M. This is the time of year that I have to go through her drawers and purge the clothes that no longer fit. That slowed the whole process a bit. You will be happy to know every sock is matched. Matt will be so impressed when he gets home.
