Aaaah, a quiet house. All the chilluns are asleep…what a luxury. Hubby is still at work so the house is truly quiet…no tv sounds or anything. Even Turbo is quiet. 🙂 I just came upstairs after giving him something to eat. He is growing like crazy and he lets us know, pretty loudly, when he wants to eat. Which seems to be all the time.
Today was a good day. My new dishwasher was installed…yay! I got the house really spiffy looking downstairs so that I wouldn’t be embarrassed when the installers came. Then the hubby let me know someone was coming to look at the airconditioner too, so the upstairs got a clean-up. The boys were told they had done enough school for the day at that point, they needed to help me get the house in order.
I came home after picking up the oldest at school and had enough energy to tackle the worst room in the house – the sun room, which doubles up as the boys’ play room and the cats’ den. I threw out 3 trash bags full of junk – especially those little itty bitty toy parts that one tends to hold on to because it seems to go with something but you are not sure where the missing part is.
After dinner time I was relaxed enough to linger in the kitchen with the boys. We were trying to make Milo, a chocolatey drink, from a powder mix but the powder had become rock-hard. The boys took turns being ‘miners’ with a hammer and a butter knife, the only way we could get some powdered stuff out was by chiseling it. It was the funnest cup of something we have had together for a long time. 😀
The oldest came and snuggled up to me while I watched a movie and he and Jenna took turns letting me scratch their backs (or arms and legs and shoulders and tummy…etc…in Jenna’s case 🙂 ). I am lapping up this time with the boy – he is very much the teenager now and moments like these don’t occur as often as they used to.
OK…yawwwnnnn…it’s off to bed for me.
