From 8:30am to 4pm I volunteered and helped build a huge playground for an elementary school. :D

I'm so tired, but it was really worth it for the little kids. :tricycle2:

went to bed at 7am ( I work 3rd) got up at 10am to reem out the CheBar construction guys for the "pee" poor job they did that took 4 weeks instead of 1.5 weeks.

Got back to bed at noon. Got back up at 4pm went to store and got the 16x20 picture I had made of my 9 month old daughter (I have a 16x20 of all my children). Then went out and got oil and filter for my wifes van and oil filter and sea foam (omg advance auto parts has like 400 bottles of that stuff it seems) for my motorcycle.

Then I started cleaning up the garbage I threw on the side of the garage and brought it to my bro-in-laws who lives out in the country so we can burn it on his burn pile. 99.9% of it is wood taken out of my mud room that we are rebuilding/adding a half bath to. Then I watered all my wifes flowers (ill water em but I sure as hell aint gonna weed em). now im typing to all you lovely folks :D.

Kids had the day off of school, and "Scan" took the day off from work...

* family got up
* I started a load of sheets in the washer
* checked online to see if I passed my national EMT exam (I did pass!!!! It's official - I'm an EMT)
* went to brunch (early Mother's Day gig since I'll be out riding on Sunday)
* went to see a matinee showing of "Spiderman 3"
* stopped at home for an early dinner
* drove to the end of the earth for son's soccer game (they won 2-1; so far undefeated!)
* got home near 9 PM, just in time for the kids to get ready for bed.

Doesn't seem like a lot, but the latter part of the day involved a lot of driving. But thank goodness gas prices are so cheap (NOT!!!).

Cheers,
Loonette

Man the details.

*Took day off work--the wife left for St Louis this morning.
*Did the normal weekday morning routine. Kids prepared and off to schoool.
*Got home helped wife with her computer homework and got the van ready for the trip.
*Rode the bike to drop off my daughters lunch that she forgot. Rode to the kids new school to register them.
*Seen the wife off on her trip. Left in cage to pick son up from school. Went an bought new hinges for kitchen cabinets.
*Got home made lunch. Finished registration forms and dropped them off. Trip to Home Depot. Screws for new hinges.
*Back to school to pick up daughter. To Wally World for household items and pet food and other items.
*Repair and replace items bought to repair and replace. Off to pick up niece from some friends house.
*To dinner. Eating out on Friday.
*To liquor store for bottle of Makers Mark. Realiation that every close relative is either on vacation this week or out of town this weekend sets in, need whisky comfort for the fact I'm the one home with the children.
*Logs onto TMW.....typing aimlessly.....
A dog had his chain reduced one link at a time, every few days, until his chain was so short he could barely move. He never resisted because he was conditioned to the loss of his freedom slowly, over time. Are we in this country becoming like the dog?
