Today I slept a lot
I thought it was allergies but now I think I'm actually sick. Again
It was raining so we didn't go to the playground playdate that was planned and I took a nice long nap instead (dh is home for the day).
Ok, to back up, dh woke us up to drive him to his eye doctor appointment. We thought he was getting his eyes dilated but it turned out he wasn't so we got out of bed at 9:30 (yes, in the am!) for nothing. We dropped him off and then the kids wanted to explore the office complex so we did. They started hunting shapes. I tell you it was right out of Sesame Street or something, :LOL 7 and 3 y/o running around saying "a rectangle! I found a rectangle!" over and over and over. There were. A lot. Of rectangles.
We got home and realized the rain wasn't letting up so we weren't going to the playdate
So we went to Target to get dh some sweat pants and pick out a birthday present for a friend for next week. We got home and that's when I conked out so I have no idea what the kids did for that time.
I had a dream about a ham sandwich for some reason
so sent dh out to get the makings for one. Kids and I played Carmen Sadiego USA jr. game. We played it "right" for about 5 minutes and then Bridget wanted to just run all over the map. She told me one of the pieces was her penpal Georgia and asked me where she lived on the map (the penpal who hasn't written her back in over a year by the way - uh hun? Uh . . . nevermind). I told her Georgia lives in Australia so it's not on this map. She said ok, she'd put Georgia in Georgia then :LOL Then she asked where her cousins lived and I pointed out Calif. Then she put a piece on Colorado and I told her that two of her friends used to live there. She said oh, so they aren't Americans? :LOL I explained (again) the concept of states and she said ok, so they aren't New Jersyans and I wasn't sure how to answer that one
. She asked where another penpal lived and when I told her she was in NJ with us, she said she'd pretend she lived elsewhere and put her playing piece in Missouri, :LOL
Bridget is back on Zoo Tycoon. The girl is obsessed! She hasn't played the game in months (a year???) and now she's been on it for days. Weird.
Owen asked to watch a Gymboree video and I realized that was the first time in 3 days the tv had been on. Weird! Usually they watch videos every day but they haven't asked lately.
Now Robert is working out downstairs and, after dumping out a bin of toys on the computer room floor, Owen wants to "do an experiment". Why does he always ask at night when I'm tired? Not like it's bedtime or anything, but can't he ask at, say, noon or something? You know, when I'm vaguely like something resembling "perky"? Ok, in the time I took to type this last paragraph, he turned on his construction computer game, :LOL Ah, three year olds. What an attention span!
I hemmed a pair of Robert's pants today and then started to do some curtains and messed up (measure TWICE cut ONCE
). I came here to de-stress after realizing I had screwed up. I can fix it but I'm a bit brain dead and didn't feel like thinking it through
Ok, off to clean up the sewing stuff in the front room, possibly do some volcanoes with the 3 y/o and get bedtime snacks going.
