This morning we got up and went to church.

Then came  home with our 2 houseguests who are with us for a week.

Then 2 more friends showed up with their 2 kids, unnanounced. Our houseguests had invited them and forgot to tell us!!! Lol! Luckily I was making a huge pot of soup anyways so they stayed.

Then DS went for a nap and the surprise visiters went home, the rest went to church again. I stayed home and watched the DVD for my new cricut expression! Then tinkered with the machine. We had some dinner and just now I finished making some cookies.

Yesterday was a fun .Valenetine's Day. I got up early and had some nice time to myself, writing and then poking around MDC. 

At 7 the kids got up and discovered their valentine's. I had left a trail of hershey kisses leading to them. DD got earrings and a shirt, and ds got a shirt and a watch. I gave my sweet hubby his valentine, which was a card and a ceramic cup.(We're big coffee drinkers.)


I worked out while dh got the kids their breakfast. When I cam out they had signed me valentine cards! I left to take ds to school, came home, brought dd to preschool. Came home again and did some lesson planning(I teach two music classes a week), laundry, and put together a dinner in the crockpot. Then I left to go volunteer at my son't school.


At 11:30 I picked up my dd from preschool, we came home, ate lunch, and looked at the valentine's that she got at preschool. Then I took her to a playdate, where I enjoyed the company of the mom but spent the next two hours having an allergic reaction to their dog.


Ds came home from school, and we all went for haircuts and new shoes. I hate shoe shopping with a passion when I have both kids with me, but ds's toes were literally about to come out of his shoes, and dd needed new ballet shoes for tommorow. Then, home for dinner.


After dinner we had choclate dipped strawberries that my dh got me for my valentine. Then I played the piano while he got the kids ready for bed. Kids to bed, and then dh and watched the Godfather while drinking wine.


Yesterday was a great day.

That sounds nice, Natalie! My mom used to play the piano when we were going to sleep and I loved it!

Yesterday I took DD for a walk in the jogging stroller after DS went to school. Then we came home and made lemonade, her new favorite activity. She let me get a little work done after lunch, then we picked up DS from school and the kids rode bikes outside with the neighbor kids for a couple hours. We desperately need to go shopping, so we had mac and cheese for dinner and I worked more while DH did homework, baths, and bed for the kids.

post #33 of 36

I got off to a slow start this morning. We slept in. 


We woke up, had cereal for breakfast/lunch, then hopped in the tub. Got dressed, and saw I had a text from one of my neighbors (M) asking if I was interested in his wife's boots. I don't wear that size, but I know another neighbor (L) who would be interested in them (knee high leather boots w/ a treaded heel & buckles). I threw a load in the wash, I headed outside and ran into that neighbor out on his porch. Ended up hanging out on the porch with him while our daughters played together outside. He took me inside to see his artwork (AMAZING pieces, btw). He gave me the boots to give to my friend. 


I dropped the boots off at my place & DD and I headed over to the clubhouse so I could have some coffee and DD could watch cartoons. I texted my friend L asking if she was interested in the boots. She came right down to meet my daughter and I. We headed back to my place and happened to run into the neighbors (M & his wife) who gave me the boots in the first place. It was the first time my friends met. We made plans to hang out in the near future. See, L and I are planning an art show/sale in a couple months and we're interested in having M sell his work there. 


L and I sat on my front stoop while the kids played outside and ate popcicles. Some guys are in the neighborhood trying to sell their cable/internet service, so we let them do their sales pitch to us, and just chit chatted for a bit.


After awhile, 4 y/o DD and I headed upstairs, while 10 y/o went and played with her friend in the woods by the lake. I changed the laundry over, blasted a classic rock station on the radio, burned some incense, and cleaned the house. I made dinner, and the cable/internet guys stopped by again to see if my husband was home (he's not). They took off. I loaded up the dishwasher, and they're still washing right now.


Texted with M to make plans to hang out later tonight after the kids go to bed. DH's still not home. JUST got a message from DH right now that he just finished with an emergency at work and he's leaving the office right now. 10 y/o DD is working on her homework while 4 y/o DD is playing quietly in her room. I'm just sitting on the couch, feet up on the ottoman, incense burning, sliding door open, laptop on my lap, listening to the radio. "BUT I STILL HAVEN'T FOUND WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR...."

Got up, fed DD breakfast.

DD & I went to the clubhouse and made myself an iced coffee.

Met up with my friend and went over plans for the art/craft sale/show/share

Gathered wood with my DD & friend

Helped friend prepare the wood at her place (cut it, dried it out, brushed it off, waxed it, etc)

Dropped off some of the prepared wood at the clubhouse

Took DD home for bathroom break, clothing change

Made lunch (blueberry wheat pancakes & turkey bacon)

Took DD to the playground. My friend joined us at the playground and had his wife bring their kids over when they got back from an appointment.

Older DD got out of school and she saw us at the playground, joining us with her friend. 

I just came inside. 

Sitting with my feet up, laptop on my lap, while 4 y/o DD takes a nap in the other room & 10 y/o is playing with her friend down by the woods/lake. I'm blasting some music ("Tom Cruise is Tom Cruise Crazy!")


Tonight the girls and I will meet up with my friend and their girls.
