Who's going to tackle Saturday with me?

Hi everybody!  I fell off the edge of the earth but now I'm back!  How is everybody?


It turns out that there is only so much time in the day to spend on the internet.  I got involved in starting up a 3rd party (I've gone fringe!) which I am very excited about.  But in order to connect I had to get back on facebook.  The party is the American Solidarity Party if anyone is interested).  I have found my peeps, politically speaking.  


Anyway, I missed have this bit of accountability though.  Even if I didn't get stuff done that I'd list here, it still had some kind of psychological effect, where it made me more conscious of what I needed to do each day.  


Already done:

got gas in the car

bought bagels for everybody


To do:

power read through the book I am supposed to write a paper on for Theo class

tidy up house (we had new carpets put in the bedrooms yesterday and we still have lots of stuff to move back).

dog gets bath and nails at pet place

send flowers to my sister recovering from eye surgery

17 yo has physical training

17 yo has piano (run errands while waiting for him)

15 yo has upcoming govt and bio exams (I think I am supposed to proctor at least one tomorrow)

17 yo also has to study for govt exam

dinner - chicken with mushrooms, salad, sweet potatoes in some fashion.

catch up on stuff I am behind in for Latin and Theo

enjoy nice weather!

I have stuff I'm suppose to do on the computer, but I'm not looking forward to figuring it out. 

Right now everyone except me is playing a board game. So I have lots of time to work on my computer stuff. (The game usually lasts about 2 to 3 hours a session)


We all should also do some chores and stuff today. But will likely put it off till tomorrow.

Our family was going to dress up in a Christmas theme for Halloween. Well my boys decided they didn't want to be Christmas presents.


After hunting around and talking about it they are going as a herd of minions. Including minion slippers we have 9 minion teddies. We taped and sewed them on clothes so that each boy as at least 4 minions covering his body.


I usually always wear my wedding dress. (For the Christmas theme I was going to go as the fairy from on top of the tree). But now I'm not sure. I have a yellow little blanket and a yellow t-shirt. I might go as "Super Banana". I'm sure that if such a super hero existed the minions would love her.


Dh said, "I'll go as Gru". But I told him that wouldn't work since I don't like him dressing in all black, and I'm not willing to try to find or make him a black and grey stripped scraf this weekend. I did tell him he can if he wants to, but he would have to put the costume together. Since his response to that was to have a nap, I'm sure he wouldn't be Gru this Halloween. :p


I do know that come Halloween night Dh will come up with a desire to make the most amazing costume or family costume for next year, ... He has yet to ever do so. But happily he now admits that dreaming about it is much easier and funnier than actually doing it.
