Leaving them at home while I went to work

Work, home and miscommunications. When I walked through the door, The Princess asked me a question. Since she asks me the same thing all the time, I just presumed it was the same without asking her to repeat it. Told her if it was okay with dad, then I didn't have a problem with it. She calls. Okay with him. I tell Indy to get is bathing suit on, I get mine on. Come out. Why doesn't The Princess have hers on? "Tink, I asked you for a smoothie." Duh!

Not going to change. Make the smoothie. Gather everyone in the car. Go to bank. Drop The Princess off. Head to Sonic's for lunch. Stop at the pool for 2 hours. Go home. Watch cartoons. Make dinner which was only so-so. Not much flavor. Pan liked. Pan and Indy do his worksheets. Tink takes a break. One hour of video game. Thirty minutes of some cartoon. Good thing tv on timer, Tink fell asleep.

Reading, Knitting & Pokemon collecting

A Typical Day - Created by Jill
Late breakfast and back to bed the two went. Finally the Princess arose to go off with her other grandmother, but Indy just wasn't going to budge. When he did rise, we played a hidden object game and then LOTR Monopoly. I had more money, but he had more property before we ended it to have a lunch of Boca cheeseburgers, applesauce and Doritos.

A Typical Day - Created by Jill

Another day, another dollar. Short day, rush home to take them to the pool. Then back to the pool when Pan arrives. Afterwards by red green house may get finished.

King Kong is music to my ears

Endearing (c) Dancing Princess

It has been a great day. Indy if fun to have around. I have subscribed to and have downloaded all of their 3rd grade workbooks so that we can work on his math and vocabulary every day after dinner. Today we also included science when when discussed sound waves produced on wine glasses and brought out every different type of crystal and glass wine glasses I had. Then we looked it up to see why. We also talked about the fact that glass is actually a liquid. So in the space of an hour we did math, vocab and science and had a good time in doing it.

I really wish I was in bed

Oh I know I shouldn't worry, but I do. My preferences are the same. Drive when there is less traffic and get there early. I just can't sleep though when she is driving such a long way at night.

I had a night free of dreams

Sea Spray (c) Spinky Dink
Today should be an exciting day, if only I could break free from the house. Our local electric company is working on the underground wires and has me blocked in. Later I shall go shopping to prepare for company. Yes, they will be here soon for the summer. Today should be an exciting day.

My time was wisely used at work, but not at home

I am in the process of "finally" making baby books of my grandchildren for their mother. Hopefully I will have them finished and published by Christmas.
