I hope you’re having a good one. We, on the other hand, don’t really celebrate it. 🙂 I’m quite glad that the kids are out of school and we’re not obligated to write out twenty little cards. Do I sound jaded? he he he Well, maybe I’m just lazy.
J likes Valentine’s Day. She likes to make up little crafts for the occasion. Perhaps we’ll do something like that today.
Hey, and thanks to those who continue to come by and visit and comment. My desire to be on the computer for long has really gone down lately, but I don’t want to post an “I’m on a break” message either. Sometimes I just feel like writing or hanging out and reading blogs for a couple of hours. However I can’t promise that either will happen with a lot of consistency. And I don’t want to lose complete touch with you guys. So, when I’m not commenting it’s not that I’m not interested. I’m just not on the computer.
What am I doing when I’m not on the computer you may be asking. Or not. But I’ll tell ya anyway!
Just stuff. Interesting, heh? The days feel like they’re whipping by. Some days I feel like we’re insanely busy with running the kids here, there, and everywhere. Other days we’re hanging out at home the whole time doing school and what not.
Yesterday we were at THE Mall all afternoon. (If you’re from my area you know what Mall I’m referring to.) The event at the indoor amusement park was hosted by Miss Dawn as a field-trip through our homeschool group. We were there from noon to 4:30 ish. Four…and…a…half…hours with the sound of games, rides, and kids ringing in my ears. At the end I kind of felt like I’d go mad if I didn’t leave.
I’m annoyed that I forgot my book, too. Within the amusement park there is a tube system playground thing (kind of like those at a MacDonald’s playland but much much bigger). My kids loved playing there. They made up games and stories and were content to hang out there for quite awhile which left me hanging out on the benches. And no, I had no desire to run and crawl through the tubes. I did that with them when they were three, thank-you. I did a little people watching but I didn’t really have the best vantage point. If I’d had a book (or a magazine or even a pamphlet!) to read then all would’ve been right in my world. I even tried phoning some friends but they either weren’t home or not willing to leave the much quieter food court…Dawn! 😉
Complaining aside (hmmm, I do that often, heh?) it was a great afternoon. The kids had a blast. I even got R (who is NOT into rides) onto a couple of new ones. If he’d had his way, though, he would’ve either been at the bumper cars or playland all day. And thanks to Dawn’s daughter, C, J got to go on a couple that I would never do because the spinning/swinging would’ve had me up-chucking all over everyone.
I put some photos up on my private blog if you wanna take a look.
Today we’ve got some cleaning to do and then swimming lessons. Tonight is Weight Watchers for me and Adrian.
I’ll catch y’all lata!
