Well, not entirely. I am still a mom, still a "home maker", and still a wife. I still have my daily responsibilities, but I am off work the rest of the week. Claudia, her Mom and Grandma are on a business trip for the rest of the week. I hope they have a nice time, and get some good memories (amidst the work). Claudia is getting her upper teeth, both of them, so she is feeling some bad pains right now. I feel so bad for her. It is so hard when they are little, and they don't understand. I will greatly miss her this week. She is such a little darling.
What am I going to do with 4 days at home? Well, I would like to think that some organizing can get done. I know I have some blogging to catch up on (but that isn't so easy with the kids around). Hence, I lose much sleep at night. I am really getting the urge to decorate and make Caleb/Maddie's room more fun. I am tired of looking at plain white walls. I am sure Caleb would appreciate something on his walls, too. I need to be frugal, and crafty. So, what do I do? What is affordable, and eye catching? I love what Candace did with Claudia's room, and it is easy looking, too...I should think about something along those lines. This week I also need to make some cards. That I can do with the kids playing with their toys. Our basement is set up nice for free play. Sometimes kids need to play alone.
I do have one, no 3, appointments on Wednesday. 3 of my friends are entrusting me with their locks. Yes, I am going to be cutting, coloring, and putting a style to their hair. I am excited and nervous at the same time. I have cut the hair of 2 of my friend's hair already once before, so that I am OK with. I am glad that they trust me to "experiment" on them. I make sure they know that they are free to go to the Salon afterward (and they may have to). It won't hurt my feelings if they need to do that. I have only cut my boy's hair (Terry, Nathaniel and Caleb), Terry's sister, Lisa, and Jeannie. I have always had the desire to work with hair since I was a teen. Someday, as my goal, I will attend beauty school. I am just waiting until I am done having kids, and they are old enough.
