HAPPY BIRTHDAY TINA!
I hope you are having a great Saturday birthday, dear taryns_mom! :-D
I'm at work today. There are tons of people next door working on McDonald's right now, and I'm so glad to see them. I want that McD's back up and open for business again so bad - the traffic they bring in will really help to put me at ease while I'm working here...
The zoo field trip was during the day yesterday, and then at 6pm we were back at the school for the annual PTA carnival. We didn't make it to the school carnival in either of A.J.'s first two school years, so last night was the first time. I spent $20 on tickets (80). The pizza, nachos and popcorn had to be bought with tickets as well, but even so, we had plenty. Heather
had brought in 50 box tops for tickets, plus she also bought some and gave them to the boys for games. The boys did the first 5 games or so together, and then Jack just wanted to play on the playground while A.J. tried everything else. They received little prizes at each booth, but Heather and I were the most excited when A.J. won a small whoopie cushion in the 'Toilet Toss.' He played a few games 2 or 3 times, and we all shared some cotton candy (though Jack was still playing away). We still had tickets leftover, so the boys tried the 'Lollipop Draw' a few more times, in hopes of winning Heather a big pixi stick. A.J. won one for her, and then it was time to get going - all the booths were packing up. It was a fun time, and the popcorn was much too salty, but hey - that's what school carnivals are supposed to be like, right? ;-)
I cleaned up the kitchen and gave the boys a bath and put them to bed when we got home. I continued filing papers in the office, and I cleaned several things off of the kitchen counter. I wanted to get lots of things done last night in preparation for my Pampered Chef show on Sunday afternoon, knowing that I'd be at work all day today.
I slept so soundly last night. I didn't stay up too late, and I crawled into bed just a few minutes after midnight. My feet were so tired by the end of the day. I swear, I must have really wimpy feet. :-P
I think I may have accidentally hung up on Philip
this week. Possibly twice, even. See, he tries to email me beforehand that he's going to call on a certain day or at a certain time, and I do everything I can to be there for that phone call. But earlier this week, the phone rang at some point, and after I answered it, there was a forever long pause. I decided that the person/machine wasn't going to answer back, so I clicked the 'off' button as I moved to put the phone back up. In that millisecond of time before the connection was actually cut off, I heard a voice that sounded a lot like Philip's say "Hello?" It was too late, though - I'd already pushed the button.
And then the same basic thing happened again yesterday morning. Again, I wasn't expecting a call from him, and we were in a rush to get out the door and get to the zoo. I answered, waited a bit and then hung up. Again, just a split-second before the phone went off, I heard a "Hello?"
I hope I didn't hang up on him - especially twice - but I do worry that I did. :-/
