wow this week has gone by so quickly...I can't believe it's Thursday already...didn't we just start on Monday?
Monday: I helped out at Church to get a mailing out. I was a bit put off that the secretary didn't have everything ready... she was still running copies when I got there and they still didn't have final approval on the acutal letter that was being mailed. I went in at 9:20am and didn't get out of there until about 12:10.
After I got home Darly was itching to go to her friend's birthday party...but I still hadn't heard from the birthday girl's mom yet... this party wasn't really planned all that well. Mom still needed to run a few errands and told us that she would call when she got back home for us to come over. She called after 4pm...I get Darly there at about 4:30 and stayed to chat a bit. I didn't get back home until 5:30...and of course I didn't feel like trying to start making dinner that late...so DH & I went out to dinner. DH was a grump, so that was a real pleasant dinner. :p
Tuesday: We had plans to go to a fall festival with our friends...but I had to wait until the birthday party girls woke up from their slumber party. From what the girls told me, they woke up long before the mom did. I didn't get to the farm until 12:30. But we all got in and had a lot of fun. The kids got to pet goats and see rabbits and a baby alpaca and ride on the barrel train ride a ton of times. The farm added a swing stucture from one of those expensive playground selling places...I joked with the other mom that we drove all that way and paid all that money for the kids to swing on a swingset that we could have done at the park down the street! We then loaded up the waggon and went to the pumpkin patch to pick our pumpkins... I think they had pulled all the nice looking pumpkins to use as decorations by the barns cuz out in the fields the pickins were slim! And the prices they charge make you wanna choke...I should have told Darly to just set the pumpkin down an we'll get one from the store for a lot less! oh well.
Tuesday night is gymnastics class. She had a good time, but didn't really get to try too many of the skills she worked on during her private lesson that she had on Saturday. Perhaps she'll get to do them Thursday.
Wednesday: was park day. Darly was bummed cuz her friends that she spent most of Monday & Tuesday with weren't there. But some other friends did show up. She played, I talked it was fun. On our way home we stopped off at the bakery thrift store. It was interesting... I have to check the price I pay for our normal bread to see if I got a good deal or not. Darly got to try her first and last Moon Pie...she didn't care for it. Oh well.
Wednesday night is Confirmation class and since it was the second week of the month they go do something fun... like see Beverly Hills Chihuahua. Darly asked me to come along. It was a really cute movie...a bit predictable in places, but not too cheezy. The only part that was too far fetched for me was that the main character Chloe (a Beverly Hills spoiled chichahua) is kidnapped to be in dog fights!!! And her first "fight" is up against a Doberman. Luckily Chloe is rescued from the fight by a former police dog who then helps Chloe find her way home. It would have made more sense to me if the rich dog was kidnapped to be ransomed...and once the ring leader of the dog fights realized who Chloe was that is what he wanted to do, but to start off with the dog to be in a fight was silly in my opinion. Of course they needed a way for Chloe to meet up with the dogs who help her and who is gonna belive that the former police dog and the muts were kidnapped for ransom. oh well.
Today: Darly is upstairs doing who knows what...well I can assure you it isn't cleaning her room...even with the incentive of getting paid for keeping it clean. sigh
