What a weekend!

I am a terrible blogger. I should have pictures of all of our accomplishments this weekend, pictures of my wreck of a kitchen, pictures of freshly painted barns, etc. Instead, I skipped the camera and just worked my tail off! So, instead of pictures, you get descriptions of our busy, busy weekend:

  1. 4 batches of frozen peach pie/cobbler filling, courtesy of this Paula Deen recipe.
  2. 4 loaves of zucchini bread, plus 3 quart baggies frozen, grated zucchini.
  3. 13 quarts frozen salsa, plus 1 large bowl in fridge.
  4. 24 frozen lunch-sized pizzas for Chance's lunches.
  5. 12 mini-hamburgers for Chance's lunches.
  6. 1 chocolate chip pie
  7. 1 fun Chinese dinner, including Dan-Dan noodles, sweet & sour chicken, egg rolls.
  8. 6 / 7 outbuildings painted "barn red."
  9. 1 work call-out for Matt, in the middle of said painting.
  10. 2 / 7 outbuildings with trim partially painted.
  11. One extra-sore shoulder on Matt's right arm.
  12. 1 recovered bicycle jump.
  13. 2 jumping accidents.
  14. 12 babies in the nursery at church, with only 4 nursery workers.
  15. At least 6 of those babies would be considered "high maintenance", at least for that morning!
  16. Several reassurances to Matt, after the nursery experience, that yes, I am done having babies, and I am extremely happy, satisfied, and exhausted with the two that we have.
  17. 1 sick dog, after he found the garlic/chicken casserole leftovers and ate his fill.
  18. 6 messes to clean up from aforementioned sick dog.
  19. Unnumbered prizes from Grandmother from her trip to New York.
  20. 20+ pieces of computer equipment from Verna's company to give to Chance's school.
  21. 600+ pictures of Verna's New York trip.
  22. 1 exhausted puppy.
  23. 2 exhausted parents.
  24. 2 exhausted boys.
  25. 1 proud, proud 8-year-old, wearing his Yankees shirt to school, and I'm sure showing off on the playground!

As you can see, we crammed it as full as we could! Somehow, we still slept in a little, worked in a couple naps and relaxing times for the boys, played about 8 hours of Wii video games, and slept very well each night. I had to come to work to relax!

Hope y'all had a great weekend . . .
