Long Short Day


It's 56 degrees here today and raining... My short four hours at work today were so long, lol... I set a small ad change, straightened up the sale tables, replaced some missing displays and opened boxes... And answered some questions here and there... We did sell 23 pairs of shoes the short time I was there... I thought it would never be 1pm though, lol... I picked up son3 from school and now he has been watching his PBS shows and I had lunch, I was starving... I had a pork steak sandwich with BBQ sauce, it was so good... and now I am munching on some tortilla chips... Son2 is now home and had some cereal and is now eyeing the chocolate cake... son3 is munching on fishies... We have leftover spaghetti for dinner in about an hour...
But first I am gonna have to pull son3 away from his shows to do homework... Last night we did homework for two hours... He had three pages of classwork to finish, he said he was not the only one, his regular math page, spelling words, sentences, timed reading and we read his library book... and we studied spelling words but not for very long as it was almost 7pm by then and he was headed to the bath... The last of the spelling words: search, rehearse, parent, sheriff, prove... Tonight we have one page of language, usual math page, timed reading, write spelling words and study the spelling words... He only got 6/15 right on the practice test today...
I was only able to pay one bill in between all the homework and washing pans last night so tonight I still need to pay bills and fill out bday cards for the month... Last night hubby and I were able to watch part 1 of John Adams... It is very good and I am relearning my history... Tonight we will watch Smallville, Supernatural and tape Bones...
The first daffodil has bloomed in the front yard... A couple more weeks and all the trees will start to bloom, full of pink and white blossoms...
OK I'm off to tackle second grade homework and my chores... and I think I am too full for dinner now, but that chocolate cake sounds good with ice cream while I am watching Smallville....
Happy Journaling...

Daffodils are a sure sign of Spring! I'm glad some one has signs of it coming. We have well over 2 feet of snow to get rid of around here.

I can't wait to see my first daffodil around here! I'm ready for spring.

Chocolate cake and ice cream while watching Smallville sounds like a wonderful idea. Now I'm wondering can I con my daughter into making a chocolate cake! :-)

Have a great week.
