Happy Valentine's Day!

It being Valentine's Day, I took daisy_knotwise, Katie, and Julie to the little girls' favorite restaurant for lunch.

That would be the McDonald's with the Play Place near our home. *sigh* However, it was cleaning lady day, so it was good to get them out of the way while Miss Yolanda finished up around here.

Dinner was late, as we discovered that our favorite carry-out Chinese place was crushed by the holiday. Usually, the food is ready in 15 minutes. This time, it was 45 minutes. And since I escaped from work rather later than I had in mind due to a late emergency meeting...

But lovely valentines were exchanged over lunch, the girls were excited, Gretchen was happy, Katie enjoyed the Valentine's Day party in preschool, so I'm going to count this as a success.

Well, other than the fat lip that Julie managed to give Gretchen with a head butt. Apparently, it bled spectacularly, to the point where Katie wouldn't look at it.

I think any scheduled kissing tonight will be postponed until a later date when Gretchen comes off the disabled list.

  • I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends

    With a lot of help from my friends, the pile has been moved successfully. Back to work tomorrow, where I will work on shifting different piles. :)…

  • Still Behind

    I am *trying* to catch up on things. I may eventually succeed, but this was not the day.

  • Digging Out

    I have way too many things that need to be done. I will make some more progress on them soon. On the other hand, the house is a good bit cleaner…
