The plan was for a road trip to Mount Rushmore.
Two days prior to leaving we had no clue what route,
what activities, or what the plan was.

Stress~ so many projects hanging over our heads.

Instead we had a stay~cation and wiped out our list:

Caulk the outside of the new sliding glass door
Cut trim boards for inside frame of new sliding glass door
Caulk the trim and door
Paint the trim around door
Install a whole house fan (not a ceiling fan)
Send picture of old sliding door to recycle company
Remove wasp nest from a high peak of the house
Change felt pads on underside of chairs in eating area
Paint kitchen trim around counter tops
Touch up paint all base boards in house
Pour cement pad for shed in back yard
Host dinner for good friends
Buy camera lens
Drive to Boulder to pay lumber yard for sliding glass door
Move some furniture around
Organize school supplies
Pack donation and take away
Some odd returns
Organize and edit pictures from past 2 months
Get new book for book club
Grocery shop twice
Found out Shag's crib was recalled
Assembled Shag's BIG BOY bed
Build Lego star destroyer

Just to name a few.......


We are gonna need a vacation from our stay~cation

Wow! It sounds like you really got a lot accomplished. I log the Star Destroyer, how long did that take to get together?

Yes, but doesn't it feel GOOD to get that to do list whittled down? Just spending time with family is a good thing, too, and you don't have to force yourselves into a car for many long hours to do it. :)

I know we are a long way away but you are always welcome in Gold Beach!! :-)

I LOVE spending time at home completing projects - but, yes, there definitely should be extra vacation time for recovering afterward!
