I had a wonderful day today. I woke up, got the kids ready for school, dropped them off, then took a walk with my friend Deborah. Allyson was going to come to but her kid was sick so she had to stay home. After my walk, I talked to my friend Tama on the phone. We decided to go into town together. I know that sounds like we hop in the covered wagon and ride down a dirt road for two hours in our aprons and bonnets. We did some shopping. I got two new table lamps for the nightstand in my bedroom. They are really pretty. I bought them at Real Deals. Then we went to lunch at Thai Chili. I order the Tai Pad. It was good. I had leftovers. I ate them already. Then we went to Walmart. We looked at the flowers in the garden section and talked about which ones we wanted to plant this year. I had to buy some husky pants for Boy #2. I don't know why he has gained so much weight. He doesn't eat too much. I do admit that the boys need to be more active. They are turning into "vidiots." At least that is what Mini Me calls them. After Walmart we went to the Encore shop. Tama got a great deal on a pair of sandals. I almost bought a dress, but then I put it back. When we came back from town I went the tanning salon. Don't give me a lecture. I don't want to hear it. I'm going to Hawaii in April and I don't want to be pale. My 60- some year old mother-in-law goes tanning too. So there. Then I picked up the kids from school. They had a great day. Their teacher sent me a thank you note for teaching art in their class last week. That was nice. The kids wanted to go to Gofer, but I said "no." Maybe tomorrow. When I got home Hannah, my cousin, was there. She watched the kids while I washed and vaccumed the car. I got some of that spray stuff that makes your tires look really black. It's cool. I listened to my new Sheryl Crow cd while I cleaned out my car. My favorite songs on the cd are "Peace Be Upon Us" and "God Bless this Mess." Amen and amen Sister Crow. After I got the car all cleaned up, Hannah watched the kids some more while I went to church for a meeting. It was a meeting for all the adults who teach the children on Sundays. We talked about how close children are to God and the different ways that we can show them love. The speaker, my personal friend Kelli, referenced Gary Chapmans book "The Five Languages of Love." It was really inspirational and then we had brownies. I'm home now. Hannah is gone. The kids are in bed. Mini Me is in my bed. I am already thinking about all that I have to get done tomorrow. Top of the list: Lunch with friends. Bottom of the list: Laundry.
Thanks for listening,
