We Declare A Work Day

I really don't have much to say today but I thought I needed to write a little something to let you know I'm still here. Even though today is Sunday (and all you good Baptists know that Sunday is the day to rest), we are working today. Or at least the men in the family are. Gabe is outside cutting grass, Zane and Jack are shoveling river rock around the pool and Jim is installing a invisible dog fence. We skipped church this morning. We just needed a day to get some things done around here. Since tomorrow is Labor Day, we decided to labor today and relax a little tomorrow. Yesterday we went looking for a new car. Gas prices are killing us in our SUV and we have decided to buy a 3rd car. We are going to get a small car that just me and the kids can drive during the week and keep the SUV for times when the whole family needs to go somewhere. So we drove around all afternoon looking at cars. I took a break from yard sales and we just spent the day looking at cars. So this has been another lazy weekend. Can we get this lucky every weekend? Probably not.

Love those kinds of weekends. Wish ours could be like that this weekend, instead of planning for Gustav.
