Sleepy Deb

After a whirlwind of activity, culminating in a filling dinner, I'm full and sleepy and trying to wake up enough to do just a little more.

On the way to get the boys, I filled up the car. The station at our corner dropped their price by 5 cents yesterday. I also called Powers about my car. He seemed to think I'll have a good chance at getting my car back on Friday. yay! I'm crossing my fingers about the final cost.

This was the afternoon I'd scheduled for shopping. First, Tigger did a bunch of shopping. He wanted to go to Rusty Scabbard, where he bought a strangely shaped six-sided die, and some Pokemon stuff. Then to Funcoland and Zany Brainy, to look for presents for Pengie. The Zany Brainy in Lexington is closing, and the store was in great disarray. But perseverance prevailed, and we found the perfect present.

Then we went to Wal-Mart and picked up dust-mite-barrier pillow covers. Flar has decided it counts as market research, and he's keeping one of the packages for working with his client in Brazil.

I dropped off Flar's dress shirts at the cleaners, and then we shopped. I had a short list of things we'd run out of, and added to that products whose coupons were about to expire. There were a number of these that were also on sale, so that was kind of neat.

When we got home, the boys carried in all the groceries and put them away, while I worked on clearing off the kitchen table. Then I threw together a fajita dinner extremely quickly, including a side of queso. After that, I sat down and figured out calories.

For family time tonight, we played Chronology, and I won. Whee! I even had two events that took place in the same year...

Before I go to bed tonight, I have to make the bed. I think I'll leave the bowling forms to the morning, since I don't have to be out of the house in time to drive the boys.

The list:

    Monday - Pink
    Tuesday - Orange
    Wednesday - Yellow
    Thursday - Green
    Friday - Blue
    The Weekend - Purple
