I'm phone blogging from the Home Depot. The house projects continue. We need to replace the cracked tile in the upstairs bathroom and fix water damaged trim. Then do some general painting up there before I call in carpet installers Hopefully in the next 4ish weeks.. Not to mention the endless packing of boxes full of books and office junk because I married an electronics hoarder. ;-) Wish us luck. We'll need it.

More of the usual busyness around here. I went away for the weekend with a couple of girlfriends and Daniel played Mr. Mom for 48 hours... And lived to tell about it. It was a productive weekend in that I got all of my lesson planning done for the rest of the year. So, I have now officially planned an entire year of Pre-k, which is something to celebrate for sure. I plan to reteach through these lessons again next year. So hopefully my thorough prep will pay off in the repeat usefulness.
Time seems to be slipping away from me. February is almost gone already. The house cleaning and packing continues. Loading boxes and filling trash bags is providing some quality bonding time. The kids and I were looking through Daniel and my year books a few days ago. It seems silly that we keep duplicate copies of grade 5-12 year books. But, how do you decide whose set to get rid of? So we continue to keep them all. The front room is filling with boxes that are ready for storage. We hope to have upstairs carpet replaced in the next month. That will be a big step toward being ready to move.
Xander was asking to see his Nana today, which is surprising since he doesn't get to see her often. I was glad to be able to tell him that she will be coming for a visit soon. Hopefully it won't be a box graveyard in here when she comes to visit. We'll just keep working on it and cross our fingers. I need to paint Julianne's room before we have carpet installers come in for the upstairs.
Today, however is not a day to get much accomplished between preschool, piano lessons, and church activities tonight. Maybe tomorrow will see more house progress. Fingers crossed.
