- This weekend’s plans include NASCAR watching (they are racing in Phoenix this weekend, so that means rain for us!), boxing up Fiona’s birthday items and getting them ready to ship on Monday, studying for a retake attempt for Bill, and starting the cross stitch on Liana’s birthday blanket. I have the whole month of March to get that done and I WILL NOT let myself get sidetracked with new and exciting (oh, shiny!) projects.
- I’ve felt pretty good about what I accomplished this past week. I did finish Quicken updates, so next week I will tackle the taxes and hopefully we will learn that we will get a nice refund (but I suspect instead that we will owe). I finished Fiona’s leg warmers earlier in the week and finished the beads on Kat’s shawl while watching Cup Qualifying Friday. Thursday was my grocery day, hitting too many stores and saving 39% on my Fry’s total, which felt good. We are now stocked up with food for a good bit, other than the usual weekly run to replenish greens and celery.
- One of the several gifts going into Miss Munchkin’s birthday shipment is a letter writing kit. I’ve included stationary with her initial at the top, note cards, postage stamps, some of my address labels (so she can stick one on a note card and not have to write out my address), and I even special ordered return address labels with her name and address on them. I have done this in the past so that she could mail me letters and she did sometimes remember to do so. I am hopeful that now that she is older and writing more, she’ll write more frequently. Everyone loves receiving notes and cards in the mail, but I like sending them almost as much as receiving. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of sending (& receiving) letters to my cousin just about as soon as either of us could write and I remember had a French pen pal when I was in grade school. With that in mind, I also bought myself some very cute note cards when I bought Fiona’s last weekend. Would you like a card from me?
What will you do be doing this weekend?
