We have finally put away all of Whitney's school things in either a closet, attic or drawer. The college comforter is washed thanks to a new laundry that opened up near the house. The last bit of giveaway stuff has been categorized, boxed and ready to be delivered. I almost have a clean dining room which has been the storage room of choice (not ideal for eating). I have my neice's graduation card ready to mail. It isn't until June 9 which just seems so late to me. We will have been out of school two weeks here before that. I cooked up a bunch of ground beef so we can make quick dinners this week and put some in the freezer so Whitney can make tacos while we are gone. Had some yummy cheddar brats yesterday (clearances at store because of end date) and am now making defiled eggs to have with hot dogs today. Yesterday we had corn on the cob and reminded me how much I miss good summer corn. I remember when I was little stopping at the farm trucks and getting a dozen for one dollar. It was the best corn. Went shopping at kohls and between a 10 dollar coupon and 15% off I got a Columbia fleece jacket for 2 bucks. Perfect for the cruise and can't beat the price. Whitney got a great raincoat for 20 and I'm going to borrow it. I can return the one I bought months ago since I'll never wear it again I'm sure. There is a reason I don't cut tags off anything. The dog still needs a bath and I'm going to be writing out all the trip stuff this afternoon. I'd say this was a productive weekend.
