Whew! Yesterday was a long day, but it ended up being even longer than I'd imagined. We returned home from Heather's block party about 10:45pm or so, and we'd barely just walked in the door (we were still pulling things from the car, actually) when the doorbell rang. Our neighbors across the street invited us over for their fireworks, and they were just starting. So I chatted with Jen while Jimmy set off fireworks, and the boys played Tag with Paige and Hide-and-Seek in Jimmy's old truck. It was 12:15am when we came BACK home!
Even though it was so late, we still had to have baths and showers. We were covered in sweat, dirty, grass and bug spray. The boys bathed quickly, put on jammies, and crawled into bed. I kissed them goodnight, and hopped into a shower myself. By the time I was finished, it was after 1am. *zonk*
I hope to vacuum the floors today. And maybe - maybe - get some baking done. We'll see how that goes.
A.J. got the mail just now. My last two Netflix movies went out today, and I'm waiting on two more to arrive tomorrow. For tonight, I'll have to just watch something I already have - the shame! Along with the mail, we had several goodies:
- sample of K-Y® Intrigue&trade lubricant
- two (2!) different 4oz. samples of Blue® Spa Select&trade kitty kibble
- McGruff's Surprise Party comic book
- Sitting By My Laughing Fire
, a book of poetry from Ruth Bell Graham (Billy Graham's wife)
magazine (the boys have a regular subscription)
- a thank-you note for Jack from one of his teachers
In other words, something for everyone! :-)
