There were a few things I had to take care of...
For instance, Mr. Willow Tree needed a haircut. Now that he has a new 'do I won't be tempted to play "Limbo Rock" anymore when visitors walk up my front path. Although that would have been fun.
Then I drafted up the Family Responsibility Management Plan or F.R.M.P. This plan will revolutionize the organizational structure of our home. Week one of implementation was a great success. Thank you family team members! :)
And then there was the great "Backyard Beach" operation. How many wheelbarrow loads does it take to move 3 cubic yards of sand from the driveway to the backyard?? We lost count, but the whole operation (research trip, weed removal and cleanup, grading, moving pea gravel, putting down weed barrier, and moving the mountain) took a whole Saturday! The boys now have the sweetest sand box under their play structure! I see a luau in our future!
I've also been working on another post... an emotional one for me. Hopefully I'll post in a couple days! In the meantime, you may want to stop by my husband's blog... he is chronicling our story. He calls it Beauty and the Beast. You've just gotta love teen romance!
