The Trials of a Busy Mom

It’s so quiet here this morning

My kids (well, the potty trained ones at least) slept over at my parent’s house last night.  Just for fun.  And what did I do with my kid-free evening, you ask?  I went to the cannery and worked.  Yes, that is the excitement of my life.  I dropped John off at my sister, Amy’s, and went to the cannery.  It was kind of fun, loading all those cans.  I made up cases and cases of cans, lifting and hefting.  When I left I was sweaty and very tired.  But it was a good tired.  Now there are 6 cases of wheat, potato pearls, onions, hot chocolate mix, pudding mix and powdered milk in the back of my vehicle to be unloaded.  More work!
After I came home and put John to bed, Ryan and I watched the Prestige.  Interesting but odd movie.  If you’d like to borrow it, I have the DVD in my permanent collection, thanks to the generosity of radio contests.

So, today we have no swimming lessons, no theater class, and only one child for the majority of the day!  How fun!  It’s like they are all at school again!

    We watched The Prestige a few weeks ago. Dentist husband loved it but I thought the whole cloaning thing was a little ridiculous. I also am not a huge Scarlett Johansen fan, but all in all I thought it was a good movie.

    Yes, we are having fun with your kids on their overnighter. They are great kids–very well behaved, most of the time. But no one wanted to sleep double in the queen bed. So one of them slept in a very unusual place. I don’t know if you will be able to guess. (the closet)

    I hope you enjoy your “me” time today. What a treat! And I love being good tired. I love the feeling of being satisfied from accomplishing something I needed to or wanted to do.
