I know this is a relatively trivial subject, but it's been a hot topic on my mind ever since Saturday, when I cleaned out my closet in honor of the carpet cleaners impending arrival. I was shocked at how many books I'd stuffed away, and it would be nice to find them a good place to go. Like the library, if they'll take them. Maybe some of you have better ideas, so I'll wait.
L worked hard Saturday on the new armoire/entertainment center for the living room. One coat of buttery yellow paint on, one more coat to go. The doors are all painted, and ready for me to start painting my design on them. I spent a couple of hours on Saturday thinking about what that design would be, and I think I have it all figured out. I've posted a couple of pictures of what it looks like in it's present state. You'll have to wait for the good stuff. Genius cannot be rushed. (That's code for: I'm half afraid to start.) But start I will, (because L won't let me put it off much longer). Remember: that's why I YloveY him.
It's going to be a busy week. First of all, we need to grocery shop. Our dinners have reached the point of desperation. New provisions must be purchased, and soon. Tonight we have an appointment with the stake pres - actually L does, but they want me there too. As many of you can relate, that just gives me a nervous tic. But I'll put my game face on, and go support. Then we'll need to walk to relieve tension. Thursday night: color my hair!! Roots everywhere. Terrible. Last Saturday was to have been the day, but Betsy got sick. I tried to be understanding, with sincere concern in my voice, but I was really thinking *CRAP!* and had to resort to the spray-on root touch-up. Friday: both Tim and Andrew fly in. Tim (with girlfriend Ashley in tow) from NYC, and Andrew from Provo. My youngest brother will also be here from Indiana, en route to Education Week at BYU. I guess he's taking a break from being a doctah, and it'll be good to see him. He's an ENT - otherwise known as a booger doctor. We have to keep him humble. So, you can see its a family filled weekend ahead.
Most importantly: Friday, August 14th is my grandma's 98th birthday. She is one of the most amazing women I've ever known, and I'm so lucky to have had her in my life. More on this lovely lady on Friday. A Friday Sweet Treat.
