Relaxing Evening...

Well work wasn't too busy, being a holiday and all... There were quite a few people but no one really asked for help so I was able to get a bit done today... I got all the price changes done and all the kids shoe clearance is full again... I just remembered however that I forgot to scan the athletic shoes for missing styles, I'll have to remember to do that on Thursday... At lunch I watched Who Wants to be a Millionaire, my book I am reading right now is not holding my interest very well... the contestant on the show was 21yrs, a college student and she won $250,000... Then after lunch I worked on putting out the men's shoes but did not finish the big pile that the receiving guys opened yesterday... I have not however got to the rest of the boxes that need opening as I keep getting distracted with these other projects that I am doing...

Then it was home to do my 225 crunches... It has been weeks since I last did them and I want to get back on track... I have also been drinking more than my one cola a day... I am past the munchies though, well except for the regular munching... Hubby had a meeting after work tonight and they decided to do potluck this time instead of their regular pizza or deli sandwiches... So hubby brought Stove Top stuffing... He fixed it, I didn't help, actually I forgot it was today, lol... I heated up some pizzas for the boys and I had the left over cube steak, kidney beans and macaroni salad...

Now the boys are in the showers... It's back to school for them tomorrow... I never did any practice book with son3 or even read his library books or wear his eye patch... Bad mom... but he did have a fun four days off; sleeping in the family room with son2 and hanging out with son2, watching movies; Get Smart, Kung Fu Panda, Mothra and Veggie Tales Lord of the Beans and of course playing Play Station and computer games... So they are in their rooms early tonight, well at least by 8pm, which is in ten minutes...

I have done two loads of dishes in the dishwasher and three loads of laundry which all the machines are quiet right now so need to go switch them all around... and I vacuumed after son2 got the family room back to normal... In the morning I have a date with the checkbook as it has been feeling neglected lately as I haven't done any updating or balancing in it in a while...

Fringe comes on tonight so as soon as hubby gets home we can watch it and probably fall asleep, lol...

Happy Journaling...

I bet son3 had a great weekend; sometimes the books need to be put away and just let them be kids, right???

glad you are having a relaxing evening and that you are off from work tomorrow :)

Fringe was good tonight...so was the Mentalist & Law & Order SVU!!We watched Mentalist & DVR'd Fringe, & I watched SVU & DVR'd Without a Trace, which I'm going to watch in a moment....I'm so addicted to TV :)
I think it's great that you just spent 4 wonderful days with your boys. Sometimes a family needs to put away the work and just love each other....it's good for your souls :)

Okay now you're making me tired again. Crunches, laundry, dishes oh my. We won't even talk about books. I was hoping that I would have my small book read by now well gee I read the first chapter feel asleep then I've been painting and stripping wallpaper since then. Maybe I can read around Christmastime when things should be calm right or at least when we get a big snow. Sounds like a plan. Kyan asked me today where his snow boots were. Poor baby he's outgrown them. So I will have to get a new pair. I may crochet him a little scarf to use all the others are to big for him. When Lauren was little she use to love when I would make her shawls. Glad everyone will be back on schedule again. I'm sure it was nice for son3 to enjoy some time with his big brother. Speaking of which where's son1 at lately? Is he speaking anymore or just been busy?
Hugs, Chrissie
