You're halfway through the week!
Rainy day here, and we don't have much planned. I wanted to go to the farmer's market but I think we'll skip that due to the weather. I do need to hit the grocery store for a few things, so maybe we'll get lunch from the salad bar while we're there.
Since we're stuck inside I should probably tackle a few things like having Travis do a few pages of the summer workbook, and maybe work on his note reading, since his band teacher has once again communicated how VERY IMPORTANT it is that he have 6 months of piano lessons before starting percussion next year. This woman is nuts...it's not happening! He's not taking piano lessons in order to satisfy her when he's taken drum lessons for over a year already. I had kind of planned to work with him on the bells a bit this summer but her attitude has turned me off to that...SHE can teach him the bells. But I don't want to give her the satisfaction of him having any trouble with note reading, so I might (grudgingly) work on that. ;-)
Do I sound grumpy? LOL My back is now sore in more places than it was yesterday, so I'm thinking it's because of our crappy mattress. We need a new one but have been putting it off.
Spent all day at graduation ceremonies and will do the same all day tomorrow!
The weather here has been beautiful for the middle of winter, although it's supposed to change tomorrow.
Yesterday was fun. L had to take baby O to the doctor for a scratch on his eye (which was fine) so I picked up A and took her and Mitchell to a play centre and L met us there later. The kids had fun although they were both disappointed that the original plan was cancelled which was for them to come to our house so the kids could play Star Wars on the Wii. We were at the play centre for over 5 hours though so I think they had enough fun :)
Today we are finally getting our heater fixed so there are cranes and all sorts of things going on around the house as they need to put the new heater in through the roof.
