On the Eve of Conference Weekend...
As a child, this weekend was the dreaded time when I would be tied down to the couch for "church" four eternal hours on Saturday and four more eternal hours on Sunday--what seemed like the only redeeming quality of this Sabbath weekend was going out to dinner with the girls Saturday night while the boys had yet another two hours to sit through.
Now, it is a much anticipated oasis for the spirit. Craig has the weekend off, I have a stack of photos to put into our albums and we get a broadcast on the tv here in phoenix--i.e. pajamas! The trick is keeping the kids entertained.
I am also hoping to get Lucy's room finished. I have the closet doors and all the trim painted, now just roll the rest on, right! It has turned out to be more work than anticipated. Maybe I'm just slower than usual. It has already brightened it up, so I think I'll be pleased with the results. Hopefully after this weekend I can post the finished room.
So, supposedly we've had 100 days of 100+ degrees here in Phoenix--yesterday, September 28th, was the 100th. I know I talk about the heat all the time, but I am still getting used to having summer weather in the Fall.
In other news, Seth and Lucy slept in the same room last night (due to baby-room renovation). Seth seemed to like the novelty of having his sister in his room. We put her down first, so she was asleep before he went to bed, but as he climbed in he kept his voice to a whisper, a rare thing for little Seth. This isn't the biggest news, though. Neither of them woke up until 7:30 this morning. Who knew? After several weeks of 6 am wake-up calls with not a few 4am starts! So, hopefully this is the beginning of a wonderful change for all involved.
Craig took Seth to preschool, and Lucy insisted on going along for the ride. He woke up with a limp, his hip seems to be bothering him. We are hoping it works itself out.
