I'm ready for a break.

It's finally Friday. Somehow, I've managed to survive this week. I don't know, seems these past seven days have been . . . not just busy, but tedious. Accomplishing the simplest, and most mundane tasks, have required monumental effort. I don't think that it's just the result of getting over being sick, life has just seemed more . . . complicated lately. I can't really say why, it just has.

But this morning, I awoke to almost a blizzard of big, fat, wet, snowflakes falling outside my window. Not only was it beautiful, but something about snow seems to stir some kind of nesting instinct in me.
In spite of the kids having the day off school, and both Jake and Heather having overnight guests, I've managed to get quite a bit accomplished today. I'm almost entirely caught up on laundry, and I got most of the basic housework done. I'm tired, but at least now, I feel like my world has returned to a more manageable level of crazy. I'm even considering taking on some bigger projects next week. Things like cleaning the carpets in Jake's room, and cleaning out the garage and finding places for some of the collected crap out there. I'll have to see how next week goes.

For now, I just want to sit back and enjoy my weekend. The family and I have plans to go visit my mom and spend some time with her tomorrow. And Sunday, I'm looking forward to church with my family and maybe, doing some work on my Halloween props. We're expecting more snow Saturday night; which would be awesome - as long as it doesn't make the roads difficult - I feel like I really need a couple of stress free days.
