It's the weekend!

It is another holiday weekend. While many will be with friends and family I will be home alone. James left this afternoon to go camping with his grandparents he will be back on Monday afternoon. Mike has to work all weekend. I have gotten used to his hours because he has always worked in retail and especially now that he is a department head he is needed there more as well. That is alright though I have my weekend planned out. This week I purposely did every thing I needed to do so that this weekend I can hole myself up in the house and be left alone and do nothing but sew. Today was definitely a busy day though. Woke up at 7 got ready to go to work for a bit then I did my grocery shopping for the week ahead got home put the groceries away made lunch for Mike and James while they were doing that I packed James' bags for the weekend and then washed the dog and then when all that was done they were getting ready to leave. So I took a relaxing shower and locked the doors and turned on the ac and now I am ready to sit back and do nothing except for what I want to do this weekend!

James finally goes back to school on Tuesday, he is actually excited about going back I was happy to hear him say that. I will have to take a pic of him in his uniform Tuesday morning. I send James to a special needs school. I love this school because it is more James' pace and the classrooms are smaller. I love Summit Academy all around. This is his fourth year of going there. It does not come cheap though. We have to pay a monthly tuition fee til it is paid off but it is so worth it. James has ADHD and Asperger's when I sent him to public school he could not keep up the teacher was giving him a hard time as well as the kids it was bad all around. The breaking point for me was when I walked into his room and found him trying to hang himself in his room because he could not deal with everyone treating him the way they did. Now things are nothing but good! He loves his school, teachers and of course friends and there is even a girl there that he wants to start dating but I told him no dating til the end of the school year. Boy that will be interesting!

I have a few projects I am working on. I started a new cross stitch project called Shaker hearts. I like this pattern because the pattern is done in various shades of red. I have taken a liking to the color red lately. I also have a few plastic canvas projects I am working on this weekend. At the end of the holiday weekend I will post pics of what I got accomplished this weekend. Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. Enjoy your weekend! I love the days when everyone is off doing whatever and I get the apartment to myself. I cant wait to see your projects.

  2. You too, I love my alone time so much! I realized a long time ago when it is just me in the house the place stays very clean when my husband and son are home they can be messy boys! When it is just me I don't have to do much of anything except what I want. I have been waiting for the weekend to get here for the last week!
