Since Lisa and the kids had gone home for Sunday night, it seemed very quiet around the house this morning. It also gave me a chance to catch up on a few things. The biggest pile to catch up on was the laundry! I did six loads - including the sheets. Tonight I get to sleep in a clean, fresh bed - I so love that! I also got some straightening done around the house. Before I could get to dusting, though, they were back! David is starting the final coat of paint and should be done in another 2 or 3 days.
I had started the day at the computer with quite a long list of Relief Society things to handle. Later, when I got back to the computer, I was able to work on family history a good bit. I am down to about 100 names or less to finish matching. I am very excited!
Later in the afternoon, after Brooks woke up from his nap, we made a trip to Kohls and Walmart. Ashby starts ballet again tomorrow and needed a new leotard since she has suddenly started growing! We also picked up a few other odds and ends, like fresh fruit, etc.
We got back home just in time for me to freshen up and then Bill and I took off for Empty Nester Family Home Evening. We had seven couples who attended and we had a great time. Refreshments were wonderful - we always do pot luck refreshments, so you never know what will show up. But, it is always good! We also had a nice discussion and did lots of chatting. There are not a lot of senior couples in the ward, so it is nice to spend a little special time with them.
So, it wasn't one of those "exciting to write about" kind of days, but it was productive and enjoyable. I think life is mostly that way - and I like it!
