Weekend Plans

So, do you have any plans for the weekend?

Most of mine will involve working in the garden and moving the boys rooms.  I don't know if I'll get everything done.  It's a little overwhelming. 

Tonight we finish up VBS with a family picnic.  Thankfully, last night was uneventful and everyone went to bed without any hassles. 

Our beans haven't done well, so we got some new seeds and we're going to plant four more rows this weekend and see if these go better. 

I need to move the boys rooms around.  We're putting them all back together.  Josh has decided that privacy was over rated and they all want to share a room again.  I don't mind, since we'll get a playroom again (and I can move the treadmill out of the school room).  The hardest part is moving the school room.  It's loaded.  I need to
reorganize it before we start "full" school again anyways. This weekend is as good as any to get this project started.

Here's some things going on around the area this weekend:

Marion County Human Society is having a yard sale at the old Animal Kingdom building at the Middletown Mall.  It's Friday & Saturday from 8am - 4pm.  Pet Helpers site says that Saturday from 1pm - 4pm is fill your bag for $5. 

Fairmont Farmer's Market is open this Saturday at 8am.  They usually sell out of produce by 9am, so if you're interested, be there early. 

Sunset Drive Inn has great movies this weekend.  Cars 2 and The Green Lantern.  If anyone has seen Green Lantern, leave a comment as to how it was.  I like Ryan Reynolds, but I'm not sure what to think of the previews for this one.

The big excitement for our house is that Cars 2 is out.  I was hoping to keep it a secret until the middle of next week to avoid the crowds, but I had to be so smart and teach Josh how to read a calendar.  He knows it's today and has told the others.

This isn't really an event, but I did get a great flyer in the mail for Kohls.  I love Kohls.  They have great sales and double stroller shopping buggies.  So smart.  I received a $5 off any purchase coupon as well as 15% off your total order.  And you still earn Kohl's cash for every $50 spent.  I'm so torn on this.  I don't really need anything, but I really want to go.  What to do, what to do? 

I'm also trying Angel Food again this month.  I ordered it when we still thought Josh might have a gluten allergy.  It turns out he doesn't.  We're back to eating normal foods.  I ordered the gluten free box and the produce box.  I'm not sure if I'm saving a lot over my normal Aldi's prices with the produce, but I thought I would give it another try.  I do know that it is usually cheaper than regular grocery store prices, but I don't usually shop the regular grocery store without coupons.  I'm going to use this month to reevaluate Angel Food.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Hi Charli,

About Green Lantern--here is Focus on the Family's Plugged In review of Green Lantern: http://www.pluggedin.com/movies/intheaters/greenlantern.aspx

They are pretty good about telling it like it is. That's how we found out that the dog Marley died in Marley & Me (which was NOT a movie for kids).

About our weekend--it is up in the air somewhat...Glen's brother is coming in from Ohio, maybe tonight (Friday), and Glen is playing the bagpipes at Mt. Zion tomorrow for a funeral (playing Amazing Grace). If the weather holds out, we'll probably do a fire in our fire-pit table and make some s'mores.

I really enjoyed our visit today and I hope you have a great weekend!
