Okay, so the evening ended up being fairly decent after all. *smiles*
Shawn called just after I had gotten Ryan to sleep, and Dani into bed (and trying so hard not to sleep). So I got to have a really nice conversation with Shawn and hear some about his life, and work, and Tatyana, and I talked about gaming, and life and my kids.
Then Kevin, Josh & Liz walked in, Ryan woke up, and Dani got out of bed. So much for peace. *laughs* So I had to say g'bye to Shawn and start dealing with the family again. I sent Kevin off to deal with the drain right away. It took a few pokes from the pipes down below (and two dousings of his hands with drano). We were just about to go out to get a plunger to try to dislodge whatever the big problem was when all of a sudden we heard a GLUG GLUG. Whatever it was had suddenly shifted after all the poking and the drano. So we dumped the last of the drano down, to ensure it finally completely was clear, and went out to do some other shopping.
I intended to buy drawer organizers and a dishpan (yes, that would be an intent to capture the junk BEFORE it goes down the drain now). We came home with those, a pair of DVDs (Enemy of the State free with Pearl Harbor), more pots and potting soil, flavored soda water for me, and a blender.
Yes, a blender. Both Kevin and I have been wanting one, so I gave up and bought us one today. And then we made shakes after dinner. Which gave me a wonderful treat tonight. I can make one for only 4 points, as opposed to the higher point one I made tonight, so this might become a more regular treat. Yum!
After we came home we did dinner, and then I went out and did some more twilight planting. I got the last 3 tomatoes into pots, and then planted some various more zuchinni and cucumber plants. Tomorrow night I need to fertilize the garden, and somewhere I need to get cages for all these poor tomatoes and the one cucumber that's going insane (BELIEVE the miracle gro commercials!). But our Home Depot was sold out of the cages. *pouts* Maybe Hewitts.
And now I'm sitting here, with Kevin napping (as usual) on the couch next to me. It'll be bedtime soon enough, but I'd like to get some writing and some more email. Yeah, its a good night. And best of all, I can curl up next to Kevin again tonight -- I've missed that the past few nights. Next camping trip I hope to go too, if my mom will help out with the kids when we go. *fingers crossed*
The weekend was a lot better than I expected, I think. I'll check the kitchen before bed, and I need to turn off the water outside still (the garden soaker hose is going). But overall, a lot more productive than I expected, and more relaxing. Yay!Posted by Deb Atwood at June 30, 2002 10:13 PM
