Yeah for Margaritas!!!

My husband makes the best margaritas. And I've discovered that after a couple of good margaritas, everything is quite all right.

Our camp has been pretty relaxed around here this week. I finished staining the boys' bathroom cabinets. It's funny how a weekend project can turn into a month-long project. Nevertheless, it's done. Now we'll just have to plan to have the floors and walls redone. I'm always in the mood for a good upgrade.

We've also decided to dig up the grass that we finally got growing in our backyard to make way for a gigantic flower bed. I think it will look really nice, but it will definitely be a ton of work. I would love to have a pool, but at this point, we're trying to differentiate between needs/wants/smart investments for return in value. We know that we'll be selling our home in a few years so, we don't want to put money in places where we won't see the return. Some people want pools, some don't. Our yard is large enough to list that as a selling point. With all that said, flower bed it is.

Also looming over my head is the mega Disney World trip! I've got to get my stratgey down for packing, grocery delivery...the logistics. ARGH! I've also got to list the back to school items that we'll need, since that's right around the corner as well. So much to do, so little time!

And if that isn't enough, my hubby's birthday is coming up and my sister's is three days after that. I've already bought one of his gifts and will wait a few days to buy hers. I know what I'm getting. I love being prepared. It's such a good feeling. (Buying a bottle of mustard for 10 cents, on sale with a coupon, is also a good feeling)

Next week-not so relaxed. We start swimming lessons again and my hubby is back on the road. May the force be with us!
