This weekend

I get home Friday expecting to have a lot of the house clean. No such luck. The restoration company cleaned most of my kitchen and mudroom. That is it. It is so annoying because I know that so much more could have been done in the time they were there. All I want is for all of this soot to be gone. Is it really too much to ask?

Saturday morning was spent making pancakes and getting ready to go shopping. Kevin stayed home while Brynn and I went to the mall. She and I just don't do this type of stuff often enough. I bought her clothes that she doesn't need, but she just looked too cute not to. And I found out that she loves to try on clothes. She was such a hoot in the dressing room "modeling" the outfits.

Sunday morning was spent at church, then we went to The Home Depot because we have to replace all the blinds in our house. It was insanely windy and cold. How can it go from 52 degrees on Saturday to 12 below on Sunday? Absolutely Crazy. We ended up going home empty handed, changing into sweats and waching the John & Kate +8 marathon. Oh my, does Brynn loves that show. She calls the sextuplets "The Babies" even though the babies are 3 months older than her. She just loves the interaction. She is really missing that by being an only child and you can tell that she craves that. So, come on China, get my baby girl a sibling!!

And by the way, it was 56 degrees in my house this morning. It is crazy. All this mess just had to happen on one of the coldest days we've had in years. We still have no furnace, although the furnace dude is supposed to be there today. I hope he finds the problem and can fix it for mininal money. I'm sure that won't happen, but it sure is a nice dream. And at this point, I am dreaming of a vacation where it is hot, hot, hot!!

Come visit us! It is friggin cold here too, but at least we don't have soot and our furnace is working (knock on wood)!
Hope everything gets fixed soon.
Now where are the pictures of the lovely model and her new threads?

I'd love to see the pics of Brynn and the nice outfits too!
So hope they fix everything with your furnace and that you can have a decent temperature home.
Maƫlle is craving interaction with siblings too. Now she wants a little sister AND a little brother...
Hello!!! China...
