The house seems pretty empty today. I awoke to only half of my children being home. It is very rare that my kids stay overnight anywhere, so rare its maybe once a year. And on those days I feel kinda lost. Its pretty quiet...theres no bickering and rough housing going on. LOL
My 3 and 5 year old woke and played play dough for a few hours this morning and Eve has been being Eve. I figured to day I would take the younger three to McDonalds and let them play for a while.
Last night my childrens god mother gave my 5 year old 3 dollars as a way to make herself feel better for not taking him as well ;-) So I told him we would go to dollar tree and he could pick out a few toys. I got a great idea from Tiany and her post from yesterday. I decided that on our way to the dollar tree I would stop in at the Local Bath & Body shop and get some nice smelling lotions and soap. Well I gave it a most noble and honest effort. I smelt about every scent from sweat pea to vanilla sugar. I just couldnt get past the 9.50 price tag on the bottom of the bottle (you know back when they first opened the price for most of their products was around 6.50) I decided that I would go ahead and see what they had at the Dollar tree instead. LOL So I ended up getting a bottle of rose lilly shower gel and some playdough, molding clay, puffy stickers, and some "scheduled" play time totes (to hold toys only to be played with during specific play times)
Turns out that the shower gel smelled really good, BUT it doesnt lather. haha
Anyway in another noble effort to take more time for myself, while I was deep cleaning my bathroom this morning. I sat on the floor and painted my toe nails (I figured they could dry while I cleaned the toilet.) They hadnt been painted in over a year. As I was cleaning out my cabinet I realized that I have had the same bottle of hairspray for two years. LOL I guess you dont really need hairspray for long hair that hasnt been cut in many years and lives in a ponytail ;-))
Dont give up on me yet, I'm still working on it.
