Tim is on vacation this week and is a happy camper. Not that he doesn't like his work, though he despises having to work every other weekend, but that's a story for another time.
He has had time to use his chain saw, take out a window, repaint it, and make new trim for it. Now it matches the rest of the trim in the living room/kitchen area of the house. He is talented in this work and he likes to be busy and to see satisfying results from his time off.
This afternoon we are headed to our state capitol for our state home educating convention. This year we are staying over night instead of driving back and forth each day. I am looking forward to it. I feel as if this will be a vacation for me! If you only knew the crazy arrangements that I've had to work out due to work schedules, etc.
I began my mental vacation last evening with a great dinner out with friends, and now after a day in our shoppe, I will be on my mini vacation! Then home Saturday night for Mother's Day, and on Monday I am going to meet up with a dear friend from California. She was a mentor to me, and an encouragement during my late teens and early twenties. I am so excited about it!
Tuesday will be back to reality but we will have completed our 180 required days of school, and we go on a much more relaxed schedule! I tell ya, I'm ready for it!
Sadie and Watson are ready for a more relaxed schedule too. They have a very stressful life!
