Weekend Update

Posted by laura on May 03 2009 | Fun

>Our weekend kicked off on Friday afternoon when Tom rode his bike home from work and found Hot Wheels sitting in the driveway waiting for him, counting.

>Found this on the floor in the art room:

>Saturday morning I got to go to ballet. And make ricotta pie. Not simultaneously.

>Saturday afternoon we went into the city for a sleepover at Amy and Peter’s house. It was awesome. The kids played like maniacs, we made pizza, we got caught up.

<The kids were up before 6am.

>We had donuts with Amy and Peter and the gang. Jelly filled, white frosted /  half sprinkles, old fashioned, maple and chocolate glazed. I had the chocolate glazed.

>Played this afternoon with Amy and Andy’s kids – Tom took an entire crew to the park like the champion he is. Then the girls and I made a fairy house in our neighborhood park. Learned that fairies are “one inch and five centimeters tall.” Found that surprising, but was informed that “if they were shorter they wouldn’t be able to carry an umbrella.” 

>Talked to Mum and Dad.

>We bought our tickets for Boston!! July 8-25.

<Found out they’re closing our high school for at least 3 days because of the swine flu.

>Had pancakes for dinner.

Now that’s a weekend! Here’s what’s coming up this week. Do you see this disaster?



Turns out I have three fabric bins that are threatening our home with a hostile takeover, so this week is Face the Stash week here in my house. I have to make at least enough of a dent to get the lid back on. If you don’t hear from me by Tuesday, call the mounties, would you?

  2. It as great fun, thanks for the write up.

    I forgot to mention that I managed to cause a 3 star injuries to most of the kids at the park:
    * 2 screaming boys (head whacks)
    * 2 crying girls (shin and face)

    Once 80% of the kids were crying, I decided to stop the game.

    Tom, there’s one thing I know in this life and that’s that you must always shoot for 100%. Please do not give up so easily next time.

    Also, our children will be forbidden from accompanying you anywhere this summer. Nothing personal.

  5. Joe – why so cautious? There’s always a chance that your kids will be in the 20% accident free category.

    Hmmmm, good point, plus if they happen to escape unscathed I’ll know it’s a good day to buy a lottery ticket.
