I started mine with a viewing of "The Princess Bride" (which apparently isn't available for Netflix streaming in the US, so we actually have an advantage for once here in Canada, where our Netflix selection is still quite slim in comparison).
It was supposed to be a "Community Watch" with online friends, where we'd use a voice chat (thanks to an author who also plays World of Warcraft and allows us access to the voicechat server) and all enjoy the movie together. Took about half an hour to get started and at first it seemed like everyone was enjoying themselves, but gradually the folks in the East were tired and others had Internet problems. Not the rousing time I was expecting. At least the movie's always good, no matter who the company is. ;)
The kids went to bed about a half-hour into the show and I haven't heard a peep for a while. Hopefully I won't bother them if I decide to catch up on dishes - I used naptime today to finish a book, so I could profit from some alone time and improve a slightly sour mood. I didn't like the end of the book, but it sure was nice to have a quiet house! (Tim wasn't taking naps but we've started to put him in bed with a book and sometimes he does catch up on lost sleep from Ben's bad nights and/or early mornings. I really like having a little break, even though I tend to keep busy with chores.)
I think Hubby will be taking a drive to our hometown tomorrow - he has a bank account there we can't transfer for a certain amount of time, so he'll deposit some money and probably come right back to spend the rest of the day with us, hopefully playing lots with the boys and causing them to be in good moods so there's little fighting. ;) Meanwhile I'm just planning to relax as much as I can to shake the monthly grumpies. Maybe we'll get to the library and I'll do some writing here and there - started something new last night even though I have a novel to edit and another half-finished novel-length story to fill in.
Speaking of novels, I just wrote one. ;) Thanks for reading it and I hope you're having a good weekend!
