This Week...

There has been plenty of activity since my last blog post. The week has absolutely flown by. It began with another trip to Northland for my daughter's final home game of her basketball career.
Then we headed to Minneapolis to help out our good friends. Jason recently spent 23 days in the hospital with a life-threatening abscess. We are so thankful that he is recovering!

We enjoyed their kids!!

Here we are watching a Northland game online!!

We were able to get some work done around the house.
This was a fun project...a chalkboard on the kitchen wall!!!

It turned out great. Beth is going to be putting a border around it and I can't wait to see it finished!

We couldn't go to Minneapolis without stopping in at IKEA!!
We found some useful items and some good deals and ended up spending less than $40!!!
Not bad at all.

Today I spent some time working on my organizing for the 28 Day Organizing Challenge. Due to our unexpected trip out of state, I've had to change my organizing up a bit. I'm now working on several small spaces instead of a major room project. Pics will be coming, soon!

Road Trip!!

Today, my husband and I will be taking off for Minneapolis!! We are going to help out some very dear friends of ours. The husband just spent the past 3 weeks in the hospital fighting a very serious infection. He had three surgeries and now is slowly recovering. He and his wife also had their fourth child 8 weeks ago (the other three are 2, 4, & 6). They both just need to rest. So, I'm going to kick the mom/grandma mode into high gear...and I'm off!!!!!

My Week in Pictures

Welcome Company Girls!! I'm looking forward to making the rounds and seeing how all of you did this week. I have to week was pretty routine. I tried to get some of the "small things" from Home Sanctuary

Sunday, of course, started out with church. The furnace was not working in the auditorium, so we all went into the gym and had church there. It made things a bit more laid back and we changed up the schedule some, but it still was a blessing and a good time of being together.

On Monday, we headed up to NIU for my daughter's basketball game. Unfortunately, they did not win, but it was a great game!!

Here she is during pregame...

...and in action...
(and yes, she is only wearing one sock...but it's a special sock for some leg problem she is having)
...and here she is with her team - front and center - (well, left and center),
doing I'm not sure what...
On Tuesday I headed in to the library for work. This is behind the circ desk (where I spend most of my time).
Tuesday was story time and we read lots of books about crazy clothes!!

Then we made some cute clothes for some paper dolls. (It's a tough job!)

On Wednesday I was back at the library for most of the day.
On Thursday I was back at the library for ALL of the day.

And today, I will head back to the library for the evening!!!

That pretty much wraps up the week!!

I worked a bit more than usual so I wasn't able to accomplish much around the house.

Working on organizing, purging and simplifying is still high priority around here.

Soon, VERY soon, I am planning on posting some pictures of what I plan on working on for ORG JUNKIES 28 Day Organizing Challenge. I've taken the pictures already. They're not very pretty & definitely embarrassing, but perfect for this challenge!!
