How the week is shaping up

Well this is it, the week I have been waiting on for almost 18 months now.  Since July of 08 when my son ask his girlfriend to be his wife.  That seemed like such a long time away back then, but it just goes to show time keeps marching on…so here we are now. 

I think this picture was taken 2 weeks after they started dating, almost 7 years ago.

This past weekend, I wasn’t on the computer much, as hubby and I were getting TONS of things done in the house that needed it, plus trying to make more room for the guest arriving this week.  Saturday was spent in the garage….It looked so much better on Saturday, I could have actually gotten my car in there.  However after spending all day Sunday in our basement, cleaning, sorting, organizing, boxing, decluttering, my garage has stuff in it again.  Not as much though.  Hubby is taking a truck load of stuff to good will this morning, with more I am sure to go, but we will be taking the rest to storage before mid week.  So hoping by the time family arrives, I will have my car all tucked in the garage. Oh happy day!

Thought I would give you a sneek peek into my week.

Today: Wash and change all sheets on the guest beds for family. Along with a good dusting and make space in closets for hanging garments.  Gather goodies for their bedroom baskets, towels, extra toiletries, magazines, etc. Who knows, I might even put a mint on the pillow.  :) As I am typing this, the washer is working away!!

Tomorrow: Clean down the all the bathrooms and give the guest one a real good clean. Wash rugs!  Do some baking.  Wanna have some great little treats to munch on in the mornings with our coffee. 

Today or Tomorrow, I also need to run out and do a few errands to pick up a few things on one of my many list. 

Wednesday: My folks arrive in the afternoon, so get something started in the crock pot early for a nice dinner without alot of fuss when they get here.  Mop all the floors and vacuum the carpets, put out some candles and viola.

Thursday: On this day, my sister and gang arrive. 

Friday: Mani and Pedi’s in the AM with mom, daughter and myself.  Puttering around collecting last minute things to transport to the rehearsal dinner.  Make my son and future daughter in love, my baked beans that they asked me to prepare and make for the dinner.  Rehearsal at 4:45 and dinner at 6:30

Saturday:  The big day!!!!

So as you can tell, I am getting there.  The weather looks like it is shaping up and should be a high of around 78 on Saturday with NO RAIN.  Thank you sweet Jesus!   Please keep my future daughter in law in prayer as she has come down with a bad cold and has actually missed work.  Praying she will feel better soon.

Should get back to work…
