Cal is snoozing and I'm avoiding vacuuming the computer/family room. It's been a fairly productive day so far. Cal and I tidied the living room. We set up the tent and played in there for a bit. Clothes have been washed and dried.
We went with Mike for lunch at Taco Cabana. It has the benefit of being inexpensive but good and it has an outdoor eating area. This is good because it allows Cal to get down and wander whenever he wants. I can't tell you how painful it is to go out to eat with the Lord of Chaos. He's got a timer (often one that's set for very little time) and once it goes off he has to be out of that chair come hell or high water. This doesn't make for very relaxing dining out experiences. But at Taco Cabana he can wander and not bother anyone.
The wind is rather high today, which made eating outside fun. It also has kick started my allergies a little bit. I'm being smart and trying to nip them in the bud before they get too bad. I'll just have to fight the drowsiness because soon Duncan will be home from school and it'll be time to head to Tae Kwon Do.
After Tae Kwon Do we're going to eat dinner at mom's. I've been taking the opportunity on some of these TKD days to cook things at mom's that she likes to eat but are too much of a pain to cook for just one person. I did chicken and dumplings last week. They turned out pretty well. My dad ticked me off though when he asked if I used canned biscuits to make the dumplings. Absolutely not.
So Indian Tacos tonight for dinner. They're very easy to make but too much trouble to cook for just one person. My dad has become such a picky eater mom can never tell if he'll eat what she's going to cook or not. We'll make enough for him though just in case.
Okay off to vacuum. Hopefully it won't wake Cal up.
