Update on My Boring Life
Went to see Girl With a Pearl Earring last night at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. It showed there a few months ago but we missed it that go round. Evidently they had some viewers choice awards and this flick was the top pick so they're showing it again. Bonus. Good flick. Go see it if you get the chance.
Today we were supposed to get out there and start scraping away all the peeling paint from the outside of the house. This, of course, in preparation for painting the outside of the house. We didn't do it though. Mike had to run an errand for his grandmother and he didn't get back until almost noon. And I was a lazy slug and didn't scrape while he was gone so we've put it off until tomorrow. We fully intend to get up bright and early and work hard all day. Wish us luck.
So what did we do today? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Mike took Duncan and Ryan to LaserQuest. Duncan's been bugging me all week to go there so when I told him my mom offered to take him and Ryan to see Around the World in 80 Days and he didn't seem enthusiastic I knew what he was thinking. Mom offered to take the kids so Mike and I could test drive some minivans but that didn't seem like much fun for Cal so I said no.
Instead after lunch mom and I took Cal to a park for a while and Mike read while Duncan and Ryan laserquested. Cal had fun at the park. We watched the ducks too. I should have been prepared and snagged something to feed them but I totally forgot about them being there. Anyway he had more fun than he would have at the car dealership.
Mom took us home around 3:30 and I laid down with Cal so he would take a nap. I fell asleep too. Mike and the kids got back around 5-ish and he took them to Ryan's grandma's to play. Finally Cal woke up and I did something constructive in the form of tidying up the kitchen. I also nagged Mike into tidying the living room.
Now the evening is upon us and I don't have much to show for my day beyond being incredibly well rested.
