What I did today

My sidekick (Fly 4, the only one not in school full-time) and I were busy this morning. What we have done so far:

Zellers - rubber boots and MORE school supplies.
Grocery Store - $150 worth of assorted stuff, including more items we need for our Weight Watchers diet
Liquor Store - Wine, Wine, Wine
My brother's house - drop off some stuff, follow him to drop his car for repairs, then brought him home, coffee and a visit
School - cheque and order form for tickets had to be in today or else
Music Studio - very large cheques for the oldest 3 to take guitar, piano, and piano in that order
Home - unload groceries, on second load of laundry and made lunch
Fly 4 now napping, I am thinking of doing the same.

Bet you are glad you waited weeks for me to do a new post!

I May Survive

Last week of summer vacation is mercifully over. Oh my lord, how many more days could these children and I stand each other for? Actually, it has gone by so quickly and we have had a lot of fun, but they are SO ready to get back to school and get away from each other. Big party here with the family on Sunday, up to my ears in back to school prep for Tuesday, so next week the posting will begin. As will the dieting, the running, the cleaning of the house, the finishing up of a work project, and all the other tasks I have put off all summer. "The kids are home, how could I possibly get that done"? Will have to find a new excuse. Fly 4 and I will be home alone. Play wif me, mommy, play wif me! Hope you have a great long weekend, everyone!
