Rain...will it ever go away?

Today is the first sunny (and mostly dry) day since 2007. Okay, maybe it hasn't been that long, but it definitely feels like it!

I don't know about you, but when it's overcast and raining outside, the only motivation I have is to lounge on a couch and read a good book from cover to cover. Basically, this is what I did despite the fact that:

I have clean, folded laundry (thanks, mom-in-law!) that has sat directly in front of my bed for about a week now, but no motivation to put away the clothes. Instead, it seems I enjoy tripping over it every night as I get up to go the bathroom (which is an entirely different matter...since when did I get old enough to have to make a trip to the bathroom in the middle of the night each night?) I keep telling myself I should put it away, but do you think it got done this weekend? Yeah, right.

Basically, fun and relaxation beat out work this weekend as you can see below:

1. Saturday morning I stood in line outside Tommy Hilfiger warehouse for a huge blowout sample sale with my mother-in-law. Arrived at 8:30am (store opened at 9am) and waited in line for 2.5 hours to get inside. We only got drenched with rain the last 2 hours so it wasn't too bad!
But, I scored a new scarf and two awesome pairs of slacks for hubby for only $15 total!

2. Quickly drove home to drop of my mother-in-law, changed into a dry jacket and zipped over to meet my brother's girlfriend, Leah (who was in town visiting one of her former college roommates), for lunch. Arrived only 1 hour later than originally planned due to #1. Had a great time, though!

3. Arrived home and made 2 necklaces and a bracelet and one set of note cards to post on my site shortly. Stared at a few home decor projects I was working on for 4th of July but realize they'll probably have to wait until NEXT 4th of July seeing how it's in 2 weeks and they're still not done in time to sell. Bummer :( But, the jewelry and note cards will be posted on my site soon.

4. Read half of 3rd book in a murder mystery series I've been reading that are set in the local beach towns.

5. Made chili for dinner with the in-laws and then we all settled in to watch Slumdog Millionaire which I thought was an AWESOME movie! Very well made.

6. Sunday I went to church all by my lonesome (hubby is still away on business and was supposed to make it home yesterday, but had problems with the install so now it looks like tomorrow night is the earliest he'll make it home...major bummer), but heard a GREAT sermon on the proper role a wife should play in the family and how to properly show R-E-S-P-E-C-T (come on say the cheer with me now) to our husbands. Unfortunately, though, I miserable failed at putting this into practice over the phone last night and this morning.

7. Came home and watched a little HGTV where I saw one of my new neighbors featured on one show and saw the houses that are directly across from us (they must have filmed it from our front yard). Pretty cool!

8. Made brownies as a Father's Day gift for my father-in-law.

9. Finished reading book.

10. Watched New in Town (with Renee Zellweger and Harry Connick Jr.) with the in-laws. Pretty funny and clean!

11. Crawled in bed, after tripping over the laundry that I really should have taken 10 minutes to put away!

Whew! Fun weekend, not very productive, but fun. Looks like tonight will be "work" night to get caught up on all my chores before hubby comes home tomorrow hopefully.
