Or maybe not to much. The major happening this week was my washing machine stopped working on Monday. They always have to do this when they are full of water & clothes. Also this is the second washer that has broken down on us in the last few months. It must have some electric issue because it was tripping the breaker and the sparks were flying when I tried to plug it in. My dad gave us some help over the phone, but after we got the back off of it we could not see any blacked wires or anything else really wrong with it. We will keep it around for a while and maybe my dad can look at it and find the problem next time he is here to visit.

We decided it would cost just as much if not more to have someone come look at it, so I started looking on Craigslist by Wednesday. I ended up having to wash some of Brandon's work clothes in the sink this week and am really glad I don't have to do that all the time. By Friday I found a washer that had not been taken and Brandon went and picked it up. It's a Maytag, which is in very god conition and we payed $100 for it. What a great deal.

Lets see other happening around here was we had friends who came down with stripe throat and so we stayed home most of the week in anticipation of the kids getting it. So far the kids never did complain of a sore throat.

The kids have been doing a lot of indoor playing and have not been wanting to go out and play in the snow at all. Anna is ready for summer and I think the boys are too. I don't think I can really count the number of hours that I played Uno this week, but the kids are getting good. Yesterday I introduce them to some new games, which they loved. It's fun as the kids get older and they can play fun games with me and themselves. I even showed them the game Yahtzee. It will be a while before they can play it, but they had fun rolling the dice.

The projects that I got done around the house this week was repainting the wood work bench in the basement. It look much better and I hope it stays that way till we hopefully sell our duplex. I went thought my hubbies gun stuff and organized it all. He now doesn't have boxes of gun stuff with everything under the sun in them. I put his reloading supplies in one container, his gun slings & leather pouches in another, gun cleaning supplies in another and there are a few containers of bullets and gun parts. I need to do just a little more work, but it's much better then it was. I also went through my clothes closet and took out all the clothes that are to small to fit me this winter and put them away in a container in hopes that they will fit next winter. Now I can find what I need much easier.

Well that is my week. Hope you all had a wonderful week and have a great weekend.

Wow, you've had an eventful week. Makes me a little jealous that you seem to have gotten so much done! :-) I had great plans to organize things this week but alas--no go. BTW - I keep meaning to send you this link... I thought you and the kids might like it!:
