We had such a fun day....

We all kind of slept in today. Well the kids and I did. Kevin had already left for work and I had gone back to sleep. We got up and the kids grabbed some breakfast. I still have a hard time believing that they are old enough to "do it themselves". I always like feeling needed. But they are trying pretty hard to stick to the new chore charts that we made the other day. Everyone has certain jobs that are theirs daily or on a rotating basis.

Got a chance to catch up on some blogs that I haven't had time to read in all my cleaning days. But I am pretty much caught up. There are several blogs that I really like and will be trying to add them to this one sometime in the future. I want to ask the owners first though.

I have to mention a really weird thing that happened to me this morning. I got up at 4 o'clock as always to make Kevin his coffee before waking him up. Well I monkeyed around doing things to stay awake and tried several times to get him up. At about 4:20 am I sat down in my chair and cuddled up with a blanket with all intentions of just sitting and waiting a few minutes before trying again to wake him. Anyway I fell asleep! But that isn't the weird thing. I woke up at 5:00 and kind of freaked--like "Oh no!!". So I jumped up to go wake Kev up but as soon as I was on my feet I realized that my legs were both asleep--feet too. I fell down! Smacked my forehead on the wooden homemade footstool we have! Nice sharp corner!!! I had no feeling in my legs and had to crawl from where I was about three or four feet to get to a place where I could pull myself up!! I walked to the bedroom carefully as the feeling came back into my feet first and then my legs! WEIRD!!!

Kevin was happy to see that his cousin and good friend Mac was here when he got back from getting firewood with Travis. They had a good visit over some beers and then went to Travis's house. He has a pool table. Got home quite a bit later than I expected but at least he had a chance to see Mac. They were very close growing up--especially in their late teens,early twenties. I felt a bit of jealousy over their relationship when we first dated but I quickly realized that Kev always came home to ME. So I was the winner in the end!;)

The kids and I had a great time checking out a Science tote that we got form our library awhile back. Zack was thrilled to find a gadget in it called an "Optic Wonder". I have always wanted to get him one but have never done it but he has asked if I could PLEASE get him one. I will certainly try my nest. I know that they are not that expensive so I am sure I will do it soon. Of course he also wants the "Lord of the Ring" trilogy. He checked out the first book in the set and had it read in less than four full days! He is so fascinated with stuff like that. I try to maintain an interest in it so we can chat about it but I really have never been into science fiction-type stuff that much. But I will admit his enthusiasm is contagious!! He hasn't watched the movies (well a little of the first one) so we will be getting that when we get to the library.
Guess I'll head to bed now.
