It's Saturday evening and I have accomplished a lot today.......a lot of nothing!!! Have you ever had one of those days were you just can't bring yourself to do anything. I went to the store to buy some laundry soap so I could wash clothes, but haven't even stepped foot in the laundry room.
Earlier a huge thunderstorm rolled through (one of the thing I love about summer), and I just sat on the rocker enjoying the activity. The kids are now enjoying all the new puddles to jump around in.
We rented Into the Wild to watch tonight courtesy of Lessa'srecommendation. So I guess if I can stay awake long enough, I will pop some popcorn and enjoy the movie.
Now Rodney on the other hand has been extremely productive today. This morning he worked on his annulment papers from his first wife (over 10 years ago) so he and I can convalidate our vows through the church. After he was done with that he stripped down all the old wallpaper in our downstairs bathroom, removed the "popcorn" ceiling and is now in the process of painting the room. Sigh, I guess I will get back to warming my recliner seat now *smiles*. I hope you all are able to enjoy a lazy Saturday to.
School let out a couple weeks ago and we have been trying to find ways to stay busy with the kids. We purchased passes to a local museum, and season passes to a local amusement park trying to keep the kids busy. Even with both those it seems our library seems to be our most frequented, useful, and not to mention cheapest resource. All three children are doing the summer reading program which offers incentives...(IE prizes) to encourage summer reading. As always, Victoria is reading more than her share, while Chandler and Maddie take a little prompting. I have also heard that Barnes and Noble has an awesome reading program where the kids get free books for reading, so check out you local B&N and see if they are participating.
