The day began early in the morning, getting up at about 5:45, to clean and straighten the house up. I cannot leave things out of place and a mess…if I return to a messy house, I want to just want to turn around and walk back out the door!
I made sure everyone was up by 8, and we spent an hour getting ready. We filled the cooler with waters and sodas, leashed the Scots, grabbed all the necessities of the day, and we were ready to go! Of course, we didn’t forget the new cell phones!
We left the house and went to Naples to pick up the kids’ friend, and we were off for the day.
We drove almost an hour and a half to a soccer field so the kids could watch their friends play. This was a league made up of homeschooling kids from the area…the girls played a game first, then the boys. The kids went off with their other friends who were watching, and Mark and I drove to a shopping area nearby.
I ran into TJ Maxx, as I wanted to get two outfits for a friend’s daughter’s new twin sons! The little ones were in some serious trouble during the final stages of pregnancy, but with a great deal of bedrest for Mom, some hospital time, and medical intervention, the duo were born fine!
After that, I returned some items to Lowe’s from the work on Mark’s mom’s house, and then we parked near a “Wi Fi hotspot” and had some fun with the new phones! Mark showed me several things I could do with the new phone….yes, he is a techno Geek!!! The kids called at about 2:00, and said they were ready for us to pick them up.
As we went to get them, the rain began. The kids had plans to visit a nearby mall, so we gave them some money for lunch, and they were off again! Mark and I parked again, and played with the phones some more! I had fun looking at blogs…gads, how weird? fun! is that?
We picked the kids back up again at about 5:30. Then, we headed to Bath to take them to the teen skate at the Family Life Center. They were there from 7:00 until 10:00. Mark and I drove to a McDonald’s not far away, and we watched TV from our home on the phone! We giggled and tee-heed at these amazing “phones”. They really are small computers that can do so many things.
We picked the kids up shortly after 10:00. Poor Mark….they were so hyped up from the excitement of seeing all of their friends they haven’t seen since last May! They sang, they hollered, and they jabbered the entire way home. We got home a little after 11:00, and needless to say, the lights went off almost immediately!
Ah, such a restful day!
