Little pleasures

29th July 2008

I got out to grocery shop by myself this evening.  It was lovely.  I
can sure save a lot of $$ and get everything I need when I don’t have
the kids!

Still mourning the end of the Tour de France, Brian and I enjoyed the 5 minute highlight clips of several stages through On Demand.  Ah…  The Tour de France never gets old 🙂 

The kids and I enjoyed Chuck E Cheese this morning.  At first, Josiah enjoyed just climbing up into the little rides and buckling himself in, not needing the ride to go.  Then when I finally started one with a token, he reached for me, saying, "Iss sca-wy!"  But then he found the fun in putting the tokens in himself, not really even caring about the game or ride.  Hmm.  We were doing better before then.  But they had a great time.  Chuck E Cheese always brings back fun memories of going as a child with my report card and getting tokens for all the A’s I had received. 

I even got something somewhat accomplished today.  I’m trying to organize our craft/art stuff, which was exploding off our pretty built-in bookshelves.  I’m 75% done, and the kids enjoyed coloring and playing while I worked, not needing to be in the middle of my task. 

All in all, a good day.  Hopefully, things will be quiet and productive tomorrow.  Library and laundry are on my list.  Then Thursday we’re on the road again to Chicago!
