We spent all of Thursday and Friday watching the inauguration and all that followed.
Amber sent me a snippet of a video she took of the quads dancing along with Michael Flatley's group at one of the balls....
Back when Amber and Benjamin were young, they put on their very own version of Lord of the Dance and it was pretty amazing!!
I used the time yesterday to work in the den. The Santa wall is down and I finished cleaning it today.
It looks a bit bare bones for my house! I have
debris stuff up in the storage building attic that I packed away when I decorated for fall. That means I have tubs and tubs of stuff that I haven't seen since August.
I don't even remember what all I packed.
We will enjoy less clutter for another week or two before I get it down. There continues to be a dead mouse smell in the den so I have kept candles burning and I have a fresh bouquet of eucalyptus branches. It still 'smells!'
Our entertainment this afternoon was watching Patton complete with popcorn and Diet Cokes!
Louis Dean has been wanting to watch that again for over a week.
Today I finally sat down with him.
He has most of that movie memorized!
Tomorrow we will bringing the quads home with us after church so Amber and Mike can have a free afternoon and evening. They will spend the night with us so I am making plans for Sunday lunch and dinner, Monday morning breakfast and some craft/art projects.
Louis Dean bought us a new dishwasher and it was delivered today.
He's been in the kitchen taking the old one out and putting the new one in while I have been in here writing. What in the world would I do without him? He is the handiest man I have ever met!
I have my clothes all laid out for church in the morning. I love doing that.
Tomorrow I am wearing a suit with hose and real shoes.
Unless my hose has a runner. Then I have a pair of dress slacks, a sweater and the 'new' brown sweater jacket I bought last Tuesday. When my kids were little, I would lay out their clothes for Sunday School on Saturday night and I would make sure their hair was shampooed.
Wonder if Louis Dean knows what he's going to wear?
He's a big boy and I never pick his clothes out for him!
