First and foremost, lemme pass a huge thank you to CreepyQueryGirl and Roxy for the much-coveted
Awesomesauce Award! Bestow your eyes on this baby....
gorgeous isn't it?
I'm going to pass this baby on...but I'm going to take a day or two to mull it over.
(and keep you on the edge of your seats, I'm mean like that. Just ask my kids).
I know the rest of you are already following them, right? Regular blog visitors? If not, you're going to remedy that, right? Good. You'll thank me.
Now that we've got that out of the way, I'm gonna whine for a few. Well, sorta. You see, it's time to schedule the kids' annual hookie day. And I'm outta ideas.
It started when I was pregnant with #2 (9 years ago now, wow). I took my daughter out of school for the day and we went to see a movie, had lunch, went shopping, etc. We had such a good time, it's become an annual Spring tradition.
Last year we went bowling, had lunch, went horseback riding, then went to Coldstone Creamery for some ice cream. Doesn't sound like much, but it kept us busy all day.
This year I'm going to do one day for my son and daughter who are only 2 years apart and a separate day for the oldest. She's a bit of a nag with her sister and gets on my nerves. "Don't touch that, get back in line, not so loud" She sounds like a little mother.
But what to do? Thinking about taking the little ones to a play place. Indoor mini golf, bumper cars, and a gazillion arcade games...or maybe we'll drive to the zoo instead. I dunno. Over the years we've done just about everything!
I need some inspiration...what would you do? We're talking entertaining an 8 & 6 year old and then a 14 year old.
Exercise: (insert one sad face).
Water: Six glasses....barely.
Book: Went to the library to hide after dinner, got about 1,200 brand-spankin' new words in. I'm at 38,800. But then I remembered I have the ending drafted in another document so I'm really probably getting close to 50k!
Saved my favorite bag for last...I might actually have to buy this one if she hasn't sold it to someone else. I just A-DORE it.
