Got the kids up early and made them do all the chores. Well, the stairs still need to be vacuumed…but Little One promised to do it before bedtime. I love when chores are done Saturday morning so we can then do other things and return home to the comfort and cleanliness.
Little One and hubby went to hockey and Big One and I headed out shopping. We are going on a southern vacation and that means fun things to buy. Just got home after 10 hours shopping with a 16-year-old girl and let me tell you, I now know that I am getting old. My back is sore, my feet are sore, and my knees are sore. We had a great time and she got two beautiful bathing suits that are both what she wanted and something we are comfortable with her wearing while sitting beside us. We got a few things for the guys and a few things for each of us, but most of the time was spent walking and talking and looking at bathing suits.
The Eaton Centre sure is one big mall and I believe we walked past every store on every level.
When we were done all I wanted to do was come home and go to bed. She wanted to go to dinner with me and talk. So that is what we did. We had a wonderful time, good food, and I got caught up on all her friends and school classes and how she thinks about homework every day. She said she mostly doesn’t mind but wishes she didn’t have homework for every class this week-end.
Now we are home and some of the drywall got put up in the ongoing bathroom project. Hubby made everyone tea and we are all sitting on one couch with both kids doing homework on Saturday night.
