The kids had another little break yesterday, as it was Martin Luther King Day. They had made arrangements for a friend to come over for a few hours, so the three kids had some fun listening to music. I had not noticed that the kids are a bit hard-of-hearing before…I wonder how many times I asked them to turn the music down…….
I began dinner yesterday morning, placing a roast on the stovetop and letting it cook all day. All I needed to do to finish up was place potatoes in the oven to bake and I also made some dinner rolls. A very easy day, foodwise!
Mark and I watched an afternoon Buffalo Sabres hockey game. The Sabres just seem unable to snap out of their losing streak. They had traveled to Phoenix for the game, and once again, they lost. It is disheartening, watching this team that was so unstoppable last year.
The kids went outside before dinner, and when I was going to call them in for dinner, they were nowhere to be found. I called up into the woods…it was actually getting dark, and there is no lighting in the woods! As I listened, I heard them coming towards me.
Mark and I ate dinner in the office, while watching the game and the kids ate in the dining area. Sage’s dad came by to pick him up at about 7, and after finishing up watching the game, I was too exhausted to do much of anything! I felt as though I crawled up the stairs at about 10 and went to bed.
I was awakened at 12:30, feeling as though I was going to die! My stomach hurt so badly, and I just felt as though something was “rising up within me”! Let’s just say I was sick for about an hour, then fell back asleep once again. I was fine this morning, so I am thinking I must have eaten something that made me dreadfully sick to have recovered so quickly.
After Sage’s dad came by to pick him up last night, I was able to pop outside for a few minutes to capture a photo of that fantastic moon! It has been putting on such a display lately, looking bigger than I have ever seen it!
The kids are back to schoolwork today, so things will be more peaceful than yesterday. Ah, back to the “norm”!
