Forgive the copy and paste from the Bookshelf, but I don't think I used the January thread to talk about our trip yesterday. In case you happen to be interested, here's what I told my bookworm friends about our Tuesday:

We were supposed to go to preschool, but got a call that one of the teachers was sick and there was no replacement, so class was cancelled. I was disappointed by that for a few minutes, then I realised it would give me more time to get ready for our afternoon road trip to see a kids' stage show. I did a bit of cleaning, made sure our footwear was dry from the previous day's splashing in puddles (fun for the boys and I get a kick out of their enjoyment even if it means my pants and shoes might also get wet) and then we walked to the post office before making a stop at the elementary school for playgroup.

We had an early lunch after playgroup, then I cleaned the kitchen up so I'd leave a clean house for Hubby's return from work while we were gone. We gathered our things to put in the car and actually made it out of the house quicker than expected. It also didn't take long to fill up the car and grab some cash in case they'd be selling souvenirs at the show.

The roads were great for the end of January, dry in most places with some sections wet but not slushy. I think it took us less than the hour I found on one of the online map sites, so instead of going directly for a parking spot, we stopped at the mall for some window-shopping for the boys (in a toy section) and the purchase of a few necessities for me. Then we headed up to the theatre and I was extremely fortunate that I didn't get a parking ticket when I couldn't find a spot with a parking metre. We were a couple blocks away but the walk went well even with a toddler who hates holding my hand for long...

The boys had books and toys to keep them occupied once we grabbed our tickets and found our seats, so the wait for the beginning of the show was pretty good. I spotted a few familiar faces from our area, so we weren't the only ones to be glad for good road conditions.

Tim laughed a lot, danced some and was totally captivated by the show (The Backyardigans Live). Ben's very first stuffy was the bird from the TV show, so he was holding that up and kept pointing out that Pablo was also on stage. He didn't really laugh at the story or songs, but his face sure lit up most of the time. There was a 20-minute intermission after about 35 mins, then about the same amount of show once they came back. Probably just right for young kids!

I bought Tim an overpriced stuffy before we left so he'd also have one of the characters. Then we shared a fast-food supper and drove the long way home (about 20 mins more than the way there) so we'd be on the well-traveled road at night. Again, the roads were just wet in places, no ice or snow. Whew!

A long day, but so much fun for the boys and that made me really happy despite more driving than I'm used to and less time at home with Hubby.

Not much going on today because I just want to relax after yesterday. LOL I did get the boys cleaned after breakfast and then shoveled snow fallen from the roof. (Metal roof so it melts and slumps off rather than staying there all winter.) And I've just started laundry after doing some catch-up and start of the month posts at the Bookshelf.

I'll make the boys mac&cheese for lunch with apple slices. I think I'll finish off the last of the shepherd's pie from Monday. I've been more interested in leftovers for lunch in the last month. Not sure if that springs from hating to be wasteful or just getting tired of the sandwiches, hot dogs and macaroni that the boys tend to like. ;)

BTW, I'll pray for patience pills for Lindy, Darcy and anyone else who needs them, rather than opportunities for patience 'cause I know how hard those are to take. ;)

Well I'm home and it's raining so I called Doug and told him to pick up the kids on the way home bc I don't want to go back out... Cole bus doesn't drop him off until after 4 so I usually come home and then go and get them
