imagine what we could do with 48 hours?

River went camping with his aunt, uncle, and cousin yesterday afternoon and returned today just before lunch. It was his first sleepover trip and it sounds like he had a wonderful time. Meanwhile, Thom and I were taking advantage of the uninterrupted time to do some work of our own. During the 24 hours he was gone we:
  • Emptied the storage closet
  • Sorted the contents of a dozen boxes
  • Reorganized the storage closet
  • Weeded the lawn
  • Got ice cream
  • Put new linens and a new magnet board in River's room
  • Slept 8 hours
  • Held a yard sale
  • Organized all of River's baby clothes
  • Began setting up the nursery
  • Assembled three new end tables
  • Rearranged the patio furniture
  • Mowed the lawn
  • Backed up my computer
And we still had time to watch The Complete Works of William Shakespeare.
