Who's going to tackle Saturday with me?

Jean in Newcastle

Recommended Posts

Our A/C seemed to be going out yesterday.  Dh changed filters and turned it off in case it was freezing up.  Thought we'd have a miserably warm night but it was comfortable.  Please Lord let the a/c work.  We just got the fan replaced 3 months ago.  What gives???




Granddad is coming over at some point today.

Help 15 yo clean her room (if she needs it or will let me)

Make sure she does some math today since she'll be out all day Sunday

Try to get some Theology done today.

Putter around and try to tidy up a bit.

Dinner out

Good morning! dh and ds3 are off to the tennis tournament. ds3 still has a pretty good cold, so I hope that things go well. Ds2 is taking the ACT this morning. Hopefully, it is not as disaster. I took dd2 to practice and will head back over in about  90 minutes. I have to pick up some bagels for the team brunch following practice this morning.


To do:

daily chores

brunch with team

bbq with high school swim team

dd2 to birthday party

Pick up dd2


Have a great day!

Looks like I should have stayed in bed today.  Just got done hollering at my kids.  Seems that certain people always need to sabotage when I try to do something extra nice.


My own reaction wasn't the best.  I am having another lovely visit with my "Friend" so I may be a little unpredictable right now ....

The food exhibit at the museum was really cool.  They say they are going to have a cooking lesson every Saturday until the exhibit ends in January.  The new outdoor animal exhibit is nice too - and it has some play stuff for the kids to climb on.  I look forward to coming many more times over the next several months.


After the museum, we met some friends at an India festival, where we ate, tried some new flavors, and the girls got mehndi painted on their calves.  (So they can cover it up at school.)  Then I went to the library to pick up / reserve our next 2 audiobooks.  I made the kids watch a video about the Aztecs, Incas, and Mayas and then read a little.  So you could say it was a reasonably productive day.  Except, I didn't get much work done yet.
