Friday Night Leftovers- Super Playdate Edition

  • We had an impromptu playdate today that lasted more than six hours.  We had lots of fun.  And I am tired.
  • Elizabeth was a tad bit physical for the first half of the playdate.  She had lots of time outs.
  • I was planning on trying to figure out a sewing craft on my sewing machine today.  Since we had good friends over, I did it anyway.  And it is a good thing I practiced, it did NOT go well and I need to refine it before we do it for real.
  • The three kids loved it when I sewed on my machine.  They watched and jumped up and down.  So I ended up sewing random things for them just so they could watch.  I did like six different mini projects that all involved sewing straight lines.  (It is much easier to sew straight lines when you are being assisted by three small children.)
  • Elizabeth was up for more than an hour and a half in the middle of the night last night.  I have no idea why.  But I am not used to sleep deprivation anymore.  Therefore, I am tired today.
  • I believe I get to finish the final decorating touches on Elizabeth’s play kitchen tonight.  It will be awesome.  Brace yourselves.  (And when I say finish tonight, I mean not actually finish tonight.  I’m sure it will still take weeks.)
  • The little dog almost threw up on my foot a few minutes ago.  If I hadn’t moved my foot in time, he would have.
  • I declare that I am not making dinner tonight.  I will make sandwiches or heat something up, but no cooking.  Perhaps we will get take-out.  But Matt isn’t home yet and won’t be for a while.
  • And now I have to clean up, it’s messy here.  Even if our playdate friends did clean up before they left, it still needs a lot of work.
