8:30 Taylor and Stacy and Connor help pick up garbage around the property. Crazy people party over the weekend out here in the country and throw cans. Don't want any one to think it's us.

10:00 go to title company. Sign to close on house in Lyons. Yeah!! It's sold.
11:00 swing by to pick up toilets, hot water heater etc for new house at the farm.

Is that it?!! LOL

Just kidding, I know you are super busy- you run circles around the majority of Stayton and Sublimity :)

When the wedding is over, how about you take a day just for you and sneak away for a "Pamper Pam" day! Nobody will know, they will think you are still working on your list!!

Take Care and make sure to take time for yourself!! Holler if you need any help, we're ALWAYS here for all of you.......

Hi Pam,
Glad to see you and Mindy for a few yesterday. I stay busy too,and I thought if I would get up earlier it might help, but I kept meeting myself going to bed!
See you tomorrow!

JOY!
