Today was a better day. I got a lot done since I had the night off from work. Here's a few highlights... Rob and I went into Bardstown today to drop off paperwork for the boys to attend a summer camp program then we had our prescriptions filled at Walmart. Picked up a white sheet.
Used the sheet to build a new projection screen. We found a projector back in March for about $250. MUCH cheaper than a television! The screen that came with it was okay, but it was longer than it was wide. We thought to hang it on the wall sideways, but didn't want to damage it. Leave it to clever hubby for an alternative. White sheet plus four 2X4's. He built a wooden frame, stapled the sheet to it, and hung it on the wall. Perfect projection screen and total cost was less than $20! Bonus..it has a better picture than our traditional screen!
We got home and let the boys know it was time to clean their room. I gave them until dinner time to get it finished. They got it about 90% done, but I give them major credit for effort! While dinner cooked (a yummy deli pizza baked in the oven), Rob gave haircuts on the front porch. No more mullets! I've dreaded seeing those mullets on the boys every day, but it's what they wanted at the time. But summer is here now so off with their hair! Brandon is now sporting a short, spiky 'do, while Matthew has his very short in the back with it a little longer on the top.
Before dinner was served, baths were in order and once their tummies were filled, it was off to bed. Rob and I stayed up to watch a couple episodes of "Law and Order". Rob is now teaching himself Auto-CAD while I catch up on Facebook, Myspace, email, forums and finally my blog.
It's been a beautiful, fulfilling, rainy evening. Time to go snuggle up with the cats and listen to the rain as I fall asleep. Praying for sweet dreams!
