We had a day'o'errands yesterday. First stop: library!
It's always a fun production.
Next up was target where I fixed some couponing errors from my Saturday visit. Coupons can be stressful business. Conference snacks to send to lex and we were off to the post office. These two are not always fun to run errands with. It can be like herding cats. They are just smart, energetic girls that like to explore and laugh loudly. Unfortunately not everyone thinks they're as cute as I do, and I'm quite certain their running and laughing can get pretty annoying for other errand runners.
I try to come up with creative things to keep them occupied. Like taking a picture to send to sissy to tell her ythat her package is on it's way. Laney literally turned around and walked straight away from me. And franks did this:
We met Matt at gymnastics and Chris and I headed out on our date. We stopped at the Waldorf mall for some belated school clothes shopping and then to a 6:30 showing of the maze runner. We read those books together years ago, so we were so excited to finally go see it! We were running late (surprise!) so Chris went to get seats while I got the popcorn refill. (we have a system) when I went in the theater to meet him, he wasn't there. I walked out and after a minute saw him come out of a different theater. He'd gone into the wrong showing of our movie! He was like "mom, I saw the end!" It was so funny! Silly boy!
Matt sent this to let me know all girls were home and accounted for. Lil' miss was the only one who'd pose for a picture. Love the pose, love the pb on the leotard, love her.
I sorted laundry, nothing worked. She was awake for the afternoon. And you know what that precious angel did? She went up to put something away in Addie's room and stayed quietly playing for an hour.
For dinner I made Asian chicken salad. The girls picked out the sunflower seeds, almonds, chicken, and ramen. I said "Addie, since you like all of those things separately, is it possible you might like them all together?" It was not.
Tonight I am blogging from the comfort of cold bleachers watching the SMALL (st marys American little league) Rays take on some other SMALL team. We lost. I froze. And it was only 73! That's not cold! Not ready for winter!!!
