I love Saturday!

Saturday has to be my most favourite day of the week. It is the first day of the weekend, with another weekend day to look forward to and Alan is home. It is a slow/busy day of rest, cooking, shopping, projects, reading and cleaning.

Alan is building me a lovely hall shelf for just outside the bathroom. There is an area at the end of the hall thatis perfect for storage, 8 inches deep by 7+ feet tall by 3+ feet wide. We purchased lumber and Alan spent the morning prepping the area, I bought paint and things are moving along nicely.

Alan is off at his lip-reading class. Yes, there is such a thing. Alan is hard of hearing. Actually, completely deaf in one ear and hard of hearing in the other. He wants to be able to function as effectively in the workplace as possible, IF his hearing deteriorates any more than it has, so he is taking this class. He can already lip read reasonably well (don't all husbands?) and we sign a lot at home, and he has hearing aids. I, personally choose to believe that his hearing will miraculously come back.

The boys are playing wii. They earned the games by cleaning their room, which looks lovely... other than the occasional yell by Liam when he doesn't win (he has yet to master good sportsmanship), all is quiet on the boy front.

I have decided to add a few more animals to the boy's pet collection. I think it will be good for them to have pets to care for and study. We will be adding a lovely black guinea pig to our family early next week, and possibly a lion-head rabbit. Alan thinks I am crazy, but having pets to care for teaches kids to care for someone other than themselves, responsibility, empathy and is supposed to be calming... all good things in my book.

Will soon post pictures!
