Default How are you spending this Memorial Day?

I'm working. It's not a holiday for my company but I got here at 6:30 AM so I'll be leaving at 3 PM.
Not too bad.

My dh and kids are doing something really nice. This type of thing really makes me admire my dh and fall in love with the person he truly is all over again.

He bought a bunch of ribs and chicken at the store on Friday night. We had our cookout for just our family yesterday. Today he's cooking 3 big packages of ribs and 4 chickens on the smoker and some fresh corn in the husks. He and the kids are going to deliver it to two families that we know that are in 70+ years old and served in the military.
He is also making baked beans and I made 2 pans of mac & cheese yesterday that he'll take them.

Your DH is awesome!

We're just hanging around the house. Rachel has a new bike & I have 8 loads of laundry to sort.

that's a great thoughtful husband you got there.

My DH got home from his vacation (he flew down to the SF bay to sail with some friends for a few days) last night so I'm just starting to relax. (the kids had no school on Friday either)

DH and DD riding their bikes somewhere. DS and I were shopping and now we're home for lunch.

I've been spending the weekend doing some serious cleaning and outdoor maintenance and stuff like that since the weather is so fine (~75degrees)

It seems that many of my neighbors are taking this opportunity to do house chores as well. I can't tell you how many piles of barkdust I've seen in driveways!

Oh, and I saw a few people standing on the corner of our neighborhood street (very much just our residential neighbors as it's not a main thoroughfare) standing out there holding an american flag

I waved as I drove by.
