One more day until the washer repair person comes . . .
Keith told me yesterday that he got Wednesday off.
I looked at him blankly, "Wednesday? Why?"
He was shocked! "Our anniversary?"
"Our anniversary?" A few more moments of blank silence, "Our anniversary!"
My brain is really mushy lately. It's because I'm surrounded by dirty laundry.
So tomorrow, Keith has the day off to celebrate our 20th anniversary. We'll start off by receiving a repair service call somewhere between 7:00 and 9:00 in the morning. At that point, we'll find out when to expect the repair service person. Then, we can schedule the rest of our day. We're planning BIG. Dinner and a movie! Not original, I know, but if we can get out during matinee time, we may be able to fit in a couple of movies! There are a few out there right now that I actually want to see! Yay for summer blockbusters! Yay for kids old enough to look after each other for the day! And yay for 20 years!
Kathleen and Kylie wanted a sleep-over really bad yesterday, but I told them that they needed to clean their room and help clean up the downstairs so that it looked halfway presentable. Kylie especially wanted the sleep-over, so she worked on organizing her mountain of clothes so that she actually has them fitting in her dresser drawers! She gets so many clothes from friends -- which is great! -- but she never wants to get rid of anything. This time, she filled up three bags to go to the Goodwill. I just need to check over what she has to make sure that she's not going naked to school in the fall, and then we're good!
So now the girls have two friends over for a sleepover tonight. Keith told them they can stay up until midnight. You can tell we've been on a summer schedule because midnight seems so early to them now! They'll get their chance thought to burn the midnight oil when they go for a birthday sleepover at Erin's house on Friday night. That mom (KIM!) is going to let them stay up ALL NIGHT. To that I say, Great, but not at my house! I'm a mean mom. : )
I've not heard from Keri Lynn since yesterday morning, so I assume she's doing fine.
Have you listened to the Sabbath Prayer song in the post below? It's so beautiful and meaningful to a Jewish person, but even more so the Christian.
