We had a crrrranky day. I think we’re all still tired from the bonfire party, if ya can believe it! That was a long night for us. It started at 6:00 pm and we (kids included) didn’t come back into the house until 12:30 am! 6 ½ hours of running around outside for the kids, and I know I barely sat down. Whew. It was fun, but tiring.
In the morning ds and I had some conflict trying to get school stuff done. The two kids bickered a lot today as well. We did have some fun playing Pirate Math in the afternoon. Ds thought up slightly different rules which made the game more fair (considering I was playing), and not as drawn out.
After that the kids played well for awhile, and I talked to a friend on the phone while I tidied the kitchen. It’s funny how much housework can get accomplished during a good chat with a friend. Listening to audio books works well for that, too.
Later, I decided it was time to clean and re-arrange the kids’ bedrooms. I enlisted their help, of course, and away we went. Their beds were underneath the windows – which is okay in the summer, but too cold for winter. I don’t know why I thought that moving bookshelves and dressers on my own was a good idea, though. My back is feeling it now. The kids were excited after we were finished. They thought that it was like having brand new bedrooms.
Because of the bickering, the kids got put to bed early. We tucked them in at 7:00 and they were asleep shortly after – obviously they needed an early night.
Now I’m on the computer checking emails, etc. Escaping the City is changing the format (or something) on her blog. You need to be invited now. I was clicking on that, but my computer started acting funny. Every blog that I clicked on went to a “MyFamily.com” website! EVERY blog…except A Spot of T, and I think that it’s because she’s through TypePad (whatever that is!). I re-started my computer. That seemed to help a bit. At least that “MyFamily.com” stopped coming up all of the time. It’s still not great, though. I’m still getting a lot of errors. I’m doing some scans on Norton, and found MANY errors. I’m trying to fix them now. We’ll see.
I’m considering backing up my blog. Not really sure how to go about doing so. Does anyone out there back up, and if so, how?
