We had a great Easter weekend. The kids and I traveled to visit friends in my hometown. They love it there. They had so much fun. It was also good to visit with friends I haven't seen in a while and see my friend's daughter she recently adopted. Staying with a close friend was great too, except I never seem to get much sleep. :) They did great on the drive home and we had a good evening together.
Monday Olivia asked to stay home with me and help me around the house. We got a lot accomplished. Unfortunately it was very cold so we didn't get outdoor things done. I had looked at the forecast Sun night and Mon was supposed to be one of the best days, with the rest rainy and cold. It's of course gorgeous today! Oh well. It's been a long day. I had a bunch to get done this morning, then the guys came to take my old refrigerator they had bought. They ended up having to take off the fridge doors, my screen door, and the exterior door. Since they had those off, they just took out the oven as well. The person who is buying that is supposed to come today or tomorrow. I put a tarp over the top in case it does actually rain like they said.
This afternoon I am spending time removing the wallpaper border from the kitchen so that I can paint tomorrow while the appliances are out and before the new ones come on Thursday. Olivia decided she wants to stay home with me again Thurs to help with some other things. I'm hoping the weather is similar to today so we can take out the bike she got for Christmas and practice on it.
Little One's mom did show up for her rescheduled visit last week. I'm anxious to see if anything "fishy" comes up for tomorrow's visit.
Olivia's adoption date is still on the back burner as we continue to await her subsidy paperwork to be completed. It will most likely still be about 3 months past the time the paperwork gets finished. If I had known, I would have gone ahead with an adoption party for Braeden when his adoption was done in Oct. I can't believe how long this is taking. Wow.
