My Three Day Weekend
This is only the second time in three months that I have had more than one day a week off. Needless to say I didn't get much rest, or much accomplished around the house.
Saturday: We went to the mall and several other places shopping. Sarah got a new dress and a short fur jacket for a wedding we attended that night. She also got a new school jacket. I bought a really nice black blouse for the wedding. It was a good deal, half price, so I got it for $16.99. Regina was shopping for her New York trip and couldn't find anything she wanted, as usual. By the time we got home it was time to dress for the wedding. It was about 60 miles away and Sarah and I rode with friends. Richard's back was hurting so he did not go. While I was gone he did some housework, which was really sweet. We didn't get home till 11:30 because we got behind a really bad wreck and had to turn around once we got off the bridge and detour. On the detour we ran into a flooded road which was scary in the dark, but we made it through ok.
Sunday: We went to church and had our fifth Sunday dinner, got home about 1:30. I cut some grass and rested about an hour. Then I had to finish up some jewelry for an order. I worked on that for most of the evening. I was tired so I didn't get much done around the house.
Monday: That's today. We are going to Baton Rouge to look for a stove. Our oven went out a while back. It is about 8 years old and we figured it is not worth the repair bill. They charge an arm and a leg to come out and work on them. The warranty expired about a year ago. I guess I should have extended it. When we get back I will finish up the grass. Hopefully this will be the last time this year it needs cutting. I like to keep it cut bc it is easier to rake the leaves that way. And I will have to cook supper. Don't know what yet, something that doesn't take a lot of time. Then it's is back to work tomorrow. C'est la vie'.

Sharon, did you have FIVE dinners yesterday?
Go Richard, we'll show 'em!
No such thing as womans work and mans work. I always do the laundry and I don't use a dryer with such sunny weather and a fine clothesline. I also usually do the dishs since Laura has started to work. Most outside work is something she likes to do. When it comes to gardens, I have a black thumb. I did finish up most of the work on the screen room this weekend. Had to tighten it up for the winter.
Thank You DR.Its about time the men step up and be counted for helping the working women.We do get very tired also and thank god for DR and Richard I'm sure there is bunches more out there.
