I took the car in today for an overdue oil change. Since the shop isn't far from home, we just walked home and relaxed for a while. Got my Bible study done, Ben played and drew... It was a good morning. :)

Ben was picky about wanting macaroni for lunch, but he hates waiting for it to be cooked, so I played him some YouTube videos, mostly Sesame Street. Works like a charm!

I got a call before the end of the school day, but it wasn't about Tim. My nephew Mike was sick and wanted a ride home. I'm assuming Sis #2 was working, so it's a good thing we live so close and can help.

I got a little one-on-one time with Tim this afternoon because Ben was tired and sent himself for a nap. It's kinda nice to give Tim my full attention, especially with his issues lately getting frustrated or angry and not knowing how to calm down. We had an opportunity to work on that when we were playing Snakes & Ladders together and he could see that I might win the game. (And that's why I offered to play the game, to challenge him.)

We also had time to give the car a quick wash before supper. It's too cold to have a regular spring/summer washing since the hoses aren't connected, but I ran back and forth with water in a bucket. I just really didn't like all the road grime building up! Hopefully it looks a lot better now and won't get too messy before it's warm enough for those hoses to come back out for an easier wash job! ;)

Hubby had squash games after work today. Usually it's just one game, but tonight there were two scheduled and he ended up subbing for another as well. I had a single parent evening and it didn't go too badly, though I did make use of their love of Transformers so I could grab a catnap on the couch. (Ben and his early mornings are not fun!)

Happy Valentine's Day all.  we are finally home from work.  I thought AF was on her way out (perfect timing) but nope she isn't...ugh.  I am ready for a nap.  I have a lot of things to do today but I will have to rest first I think.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Darcy, I'm sorry AF stuck around for Valentine's. Mean! Hope you got enough rest and didn't overdo it.

Another night of interrupted sleep, but I felt a bit more hopeful about Ben's cold - he was up at 2:30 and really hungry after a day of low energy and no appetite. So, I waited with him as he refueled with crackers and water. Then I managed to get him back to bed and he slept till the regular wake-up time. :) I'm tired, but also grateful for a recovering kid with something like his normal amount of energy.

Definitely a day for taking it easy if I can, so my priorities have been homemade bread and Bible studies. (It's about another five minutes to add in the church study book and guide we're using. Here I used to think I had no time for daily Bible reading, tsk tsk.) I'm also enjoying caffeine intake with tea - I used Coke Zero yesterday for the higher level of caffeine, but there's something about a hot cup of tea in my hands. :)
