Weekend Wrap-Up

What did I accomplish this weekend?  Well, it wasn't what I had on my list.  After my nephew started using excuses like "I can't write a journal entry from the perspective of an Iroquois boy because they didn't have a big vocabulary", I knew I couldn't stand back and watch him go to school empty handed.  We spent Saturday, Sunday and Monday doing homework.  We finally finished at 8pm tonight.  He wouldn't have had so much homework except he put off 2 assignments that he has known about for weeks.  I am so glad they are finished.

I did get a little bit of my own stuff done.  The back yard is 3/4th of the way weeded.  I used the shovel to get most of them and then bought some weed spray for the ones in hard to reach places.  I bought some pre-emergent too but didn't spread it yet.  I didn't have any time for the front yard.  It was still too hot.  One more weekend before the relatives arrive.I hope it is cooler.

I'm looking forward to a short week.  A few people are on vacation so the office should be quiet.  Next week I hope to take 2 days off so it will be short too.  Next weekend, cleaning will be on the top of my list.  Hopefully, the nephew can handle his own homework.
