1. I have a mountain of laundry to do today. It is not even 5:15am and I've already done one load...
2. The Grandbugs are due to arrive Monday.
3. They are going to start the floors on Monday. The guest room floor is being done when all the rest of the floors are going in... Of course it is...
4. The Grandbugs will lose their "bedroom" and their bed will be moved to the formal living room. There's nothing like putting your parents on display...
5. My brand new A/C unit is pumping out hot air. They are coming to figure out why this morning. I darned well better have cold air pumping out of that thing by this evening or I'm not going to be very happy.
6. Yesterday was the last day of school! The children are asleep in their beds and they can stay there as long as they want today. Tomorrow is another story, but today they may sleep. (Tomorrow, we have chores!)
7. LLB walked away with a few awards at yesterday's 5th grade graduation. #1 Son cleaned up over at the Middle School. It was a good day for the kids at The Crossing.
8. I hope they start my deck today. I really could use it while the Grandbugs are here...
9. I entered a scrapbooking competition for the summer. I have to get 30 pages done. I need to catch up. I think I have at least 30 pages to do!! The person who completes the most pages gets a prize. You know me - I love prizes!!
10. LLB's ballet performances are this weekend. It's a full length ballet. Want to see it? I've got a connection for tickets...
11. I am reading a book called "The Book Thief". Get it! Read it! It is a young adult book, but it is really really good.
12. The children are off to Band Camp in a couple of weeks. LLB is going to be playing her trumpet! She's so excited. #1 Son is not as excited to have his younger sister join him at this Middle School camp... Alas, he will have to adjust!
13. If you were a kid, say a 13 year old boy, and you could go to a boring meeting with mom or stay home and clean up the house for company, which would you choose?

im a scrapbooker too.would you mind sharing me some info about the competition?
Of all the things on the list I read, what hit me most was, "OH, NO! NOT THE AC!!!!!" I hope all of the building, installing and repairing goes smoothly for you! ;)
Good heavens...can ya'll just check into a hotel for a day or two? I take it this is the big move for the grandbugs? I'm soooo happy for you all- and sending good thoughts your way for smooth transitions. Re: the 13 yr old? my Chick would ALwAYS choose to stay home and clean, and since she does a dang fine job, I always let her!
Ack!!! No A C? I couldn't survive the heat -- it was near 100 here yesterday. Hope you have some icy relief soon.
My Thurs 13 is posted
I've heard a lot about The Book Thief. I'll have to check it out.
Good luck with the a/c. That's a pain.
Young Adult fiction is often the best. I mean, I really love it. Ender's Game is my favorite book!
30 scrapbook pages? I can't even get motivated to put my vacation pics in a book. Usually, I'm pretty quick at it. I guess it's the summer so I'd rather be outside.
I would stay home and clean. Sounds like a very busy time at the Ladybug Estate! Nice list, and I too hope things get straightened out soon!
My T13 is up!
wow number 13 is a hard one to decide!
Probably stay home cleaning, cause there is more room for screwing off there. LOL
Well I guess you sound really really busy today and this coming weekend and week..WOW!! I could not keep up with you and scrapbook too!! When will you find the time? I love to scrap book too...
Great list! Good luck with the scrapbooking contest! I need to get back to it!
busy days ahead! I would stay home and clean... what did he choose?
Ahh the chores - the kids got out last week - last week was a free week - I have now made a list of things for them to do daily (see my post from Tuesday of this week) - so far it seems to be working.
Scrapbooking competition? Sounds really fun! I am a little behind - I have everything ready (pics cropped) I just need to get the pages done!
Great TT - I played too
I am going for a scrapbooking lesson next month. First ever.
Wow LB you sure get up early! Congrats to the kids on all the school awards - yay! I'm glad the addition is progressing so well, even though you'll have to move the inlaws.
The 13 year-old would probably not want to do either option... imo.
Best of luck with the scrapbooking competition! 30 pages is a pretty big task, but I'm sure you'll get them finished beautifully.
I live here in hot, humid, charleston, sc and having the ac go out is NOT a great thing! Hope it got fixed!
My daughter loves reading the young adult books...she says they have the best authors and plots. Wow, never a dull momment at the crossing. Sounds like things are progressing well though.
Hope you get your air conditioner going!! Hang in there with the floors and just think how nice it will be when done!
I wanna come see L'il LadyBug's ballet recital thingy.......[sulk]
Now, how do I get to Northern VA from England...[fishes out bus timtable]
Hope the Grandbugs like their new home :-)
My TT is up!
I cannot THINK of anything worse than having to do laundry at 5:15 in the morning.
I am so so so sorry.
That is rough.
WOW, laundry at 5am... *chills*
I love your blog's layout! LOVELY!
My TT is up too!
Wow, I was tired just reading that list. Floors, AC with hot air, work on the deck, graduation, band camp - good grief, you are one busy woman! Hope it all goes well, and please, get some rest!
Have a wonderful day and weekend :)
Bug: This is an easy question. I would stay home and pretend to clean the house. Like all boys...
Wow! I thought I had a busy day at work!
Good luck on the scrapbooking thing. Sounds like you got some remodeling going on. I know that can be stressful, but it is nice when it is done. We need some work done on our home. As for #13, I would take a book and go to the boring meeting if I were that age. Never been much for the cleaning, I have to now though. My list is up!
The hot air a/c thing would tick me off too! I hope they got it blowing cooler now for ya! and I'd pick going to a boring meeting over cleaning any day of the week! :-)
LOL on #13. I asked my 12 yr. old daughter which she'd like to do, and she said boring meeting! I'm actually starting to get interested in Scrapbooking and making cards. I hope you get your AC fixed SOON! Happy Thursday.
Your kids sound awesome.
I wish mine would sleep late. Sigh.
Hey, The Book Thief is on my nightstand as we type!
Sorry I'm late!
I thought LadyBugs were supposed to be laid back. You're more like a busy bee lately!
I'd stay home and clean the house if I were a 13 year old with the choice. Then again, maybe I'm just a freak...I start cleaning other people's home while visiting. I MUST clean!
