Sep 30, 2011 Today's Agenda
So, we got into Buffalo last night a little past midnight after an uneventful drive from Brooklyn. I only had to yell once, after Fiona decided that the best way to get the iPad from her brother would be to mimic what he was saying.
I slept in this morning until a blissful 9:45. I knew my mom had left for work early so I expected the kids to be starving, which they were. But since they’d gotten up and headed straight for the TV, they hadn’t even noticed that my mom had left them breakfast!
It was a breakfast so typical of my mom I should’ve taken a picture:
- Slow-cooked oatmeal for Fiona
- Bread for Jake to toast – with the crusts cut off
- A fun-pack of M&Ms for each kid
- A scratch off lottery ticket
She cracks me up. She can feed them whatever she wants – she’s taking the turtles off my hands!
As for me, I was about to make some toast when I remembered that Mighty Taco opens at 10am, so I ran out the door in pjs with $5 and my car keys. The only time it is acceptable to drive one block is when going through the drive through will camouflage the fact that you’re braless and haven’t brushed your teeth.
So today will be filled with boring errands – things I should’ve done already but are easier to do here: get the car cleaned inside and out and the oil changed (hello, Delta Sonic!), then inspected, mail some stuff to my sister in St. Thomas that my niece has probably outgrown by now because I waited so long, and buy poster board and other crap for the TWO projects Jake was assigned for a four day weekend. Don’t even get me started on that.
Have a good one!
