Dryer is humming.
Lights are on; it’s 5:30, very gloomy, and raining.
When cars go by they splash up rain off the road, a lovely sound.
I made chicken and dumplings for dinner.
Seth got mad at Sarah because she started to give him a candy and then took it back.
The coffee table is covered in books and toys.
I finished a book today, and started another.
Sarah acted so guilty as she walked by me that I asked her what she had in her hands. It was a package of crackers, a package of fruit snacks, and a granola bar. “I’ll drink some water after.”
Caleb watched numerous youtube videos of football clips when he got home from school.
Seth liked dinner for the second day in a row and gave me a hug. “I’m on a roll this week,” I tease. “You’ve been on a roll with me since I started eating your dinners,” he replies.
I tried calling Rich but he didn’t answer and then he called me back later to make sure everything was okay. Practice is cancelled so he might take the boys for haircuts later.
I took David to the orthodontist this morning, and then drive-thru breakfast.
Then to high school—–HIGH SCHOOL!
I found a vintage fiesta teacup (no saucer) for 50 cents today.
I took a newly hatched butterfly outside.
Seth and Sarah are busy running a bath, for their stuffed animals.
This was after I said “no” to washing the cat.
They are calling it the Shower Pet Shop.
There is a pile of shoes and backpacks by the door.
Mail on the counter.
I heard from Grace today, briefly; she had a quiz in math.
And Ethan got an “A” on a paper. He had interviewed his Dad about being a Manager.
Rich says it’s his first college “A”.
I think Caleb fell asleep in his room.
I know David did. I took his picture.
I normally don’t allow 5:30pm naps.
But today it just seems right.
