Today was *my* first day of school! In the morning I helped Kathy in first grade. I copied, laminated, sorted and filed. I went home so Dave could take a shower, then ran to McDonalds to get him a diet Coke. Then I went to do computer work for Debbie. She is doing Kindergarten readiness this year. But since it was my nap time, my productivity was rapidly deteriorating, so I'll do the rest at home.

Then I came home to try to nap but couldn't. I made dinner, and drove Dave to church so he could teach his class. Then I'll drive him back home. By then I am sure *I* will be ready to crash into bed!

Sunday and Monday


Sunday we went to church. After a nap, we went to some friends' for supper. Then we went to the Wisconsin Highland Games at the Waukesha Expo to hear his brother's Gaelic band. It was wild to see all the guys in kilts (not the band, the people attending). Then we went to Thunder Bay Grill for dessert.

Monday I made my 75th trip to Walmart for school supplies, then we drove to Madison to see Daniel and Kristin and take a carload of stuff. We went to lunch at Unos and then dropped them off. It was good to see them settled in and ready to start the school year.

We came home and I took a nap and then did some watering in the garden and we walked the dog.

After a late supper I chilled for a bit and went to bed.

September 2, 2007


Saturday was a pretty typical day, just did some errands, laundry, and picking up around the house. We grilled salmon and potatoes for dinner then I took the dog for a walk and watched High School Musical, kinda cheesy, but cute.

September 1, 2007


Yesterday was my first whole day with my kids off to college. It was weird to wake up and find their beds empty. ; (

I spent the day doing all the usual stuff--laundry, grocery shopping.

Late in the afternoon, the living room furniture we ordered 3 months ago finally arrived. We had to do some rearranging to get it all in! The pieces are bigger than we remembered, 2 chairs and a sofa.

Then we went downtown to see Chris Botti and Diana Krall. The music was great! Our seats were not so good. I had a squirmy man in front of me who kept shifting around in his seat so I had to keep leaning way to the left or way to the right to see. They left about 5 songs before the end so I had a good view for the end of the concert.

Today is errands and cleaning up after the rearranging.

Here are some photos of the new furniture and new living room arrangement.
