This post is a choppy listing of thoughts that just randomly popped into my head. Some days are like that. Choppy. 🙂
I phoned a mom from the school yesterday and set up a play date for today. She has a 9 yr old son who seems like a great kid. She and I talked on the phone for well over a half hour so I think we’ll have a good visit as well. I’m looking forward to it. I was considering inviting one of Dd’s friends so that she would have someone to play with, too. We’ll see.
It was interesting to read your comments regarding phone calls. Personally, I’m a yapper. My friends and I have been known to be on the phone for hours. I clean house, do laundry, dishes, etc. while I’m on the phone. It helps me. In fact, I’ll call L and say, I have supper to cook. I need someone to talk to. Adrian does not understand, however. We’ve had many a “discussion” on the topic. I know some people who don’t like the phone – I just happen to be one that does. The reason I’m not calling those other moms is because of silly stubbornness. They’re acquaintances, though. Even still, I do need to get over myself and phone them.
Having friends over is a great way to motivate the kids to clean their rooms and the playroom. “If you want so-and-so to come in here you better clean it up”, I’ll say. And they sure get movin’!
Yesterday I ate way too many potato chips. I don’t buy them except that we just had a party. I have plenty left over, and just can’t let them go to waste. We had Coke left over as well, which is another thing I don’t usually buy. There is a reason I don’t buy this stuff. I’m addicted! Potato chips, in particular, are my nemesis. I can’t ever just have a few. Yesterday I pigged out and then suffered for it all evening. I’m not used to eating that stuff anymore, and I felt like crap as a result. I’ve gotta get them outta the house!
Its 10:30 and I’m not sure how much school work we’re going to get accomplished today. We’ll do some reading, but what else? Hmmm. Maybe some math fact questions on the white board. I want to get some flash cards. The children don’t have many of the addition/subtraction math facts memorized.
Okay, I’m going to go and get some laundry started and then round the kids up.
