Questions: For these daily posts, are you more interested in an overview of what we did for the day (e.g. bullet points) or a few highlights? OR a combination of approaches? Photo heavy posts, or more verbal descriptions?
Once again, I forgot to take any significant photos for the day. No wonder I have no memory: If I can’t remember to take snapshots with my phone, I’m probably not taking them with my brain either.
Not to worry. My peeps have me covered. I found this on my phone today:
I think there’s a clue as to who the mystery photographer was. I know those feet.
I also found this one. That’s a lot of hair. The guy who bought Lydia’s hair recently contacted Kaitlyn to ask if she wanted to sell her hair as well. She declined. She’s a good girl, she is. [Can you name that quote? Try saying it in the first person, with a British accent.]
This afternoon while I bought a wedding gift and picked up another deal from Craigslist for resale, the girls prepared and froze 80 pounds of mashed potatoes. They are on the home stretch in this project. Just 40 pounds left! It’s a good thing, too. The wedding is a week from tomorrow!
This evening the girls and I attended a bridal shower for the same bride. On the way, we stopped at Starbucks for some free treats, and since I had a captive audience we practiced the alto part of two hymns until
we were sick of hearing them we knew them perfectly. We are not highly trained musicians so it takes a lot of effort for us to sing in parts, but I love when we really get it!
At the shower I got to spend some time with several dear friends that I haven’t seen in a very long time. I already confessed that I forgot to take photos, but that’s not entirely true. I missed all my friends, but I did get just one photo to memorialize the event.
On our way home, we stopped to pick up another Craigslist purchase. The seller turned out to be a boy we recognized from our gym! It’s a small world, even in the big city. I’ve got quite a few items to list now, but we’ll be busy most of the weekend so I won’t list them until Monday morning. There is no point in frustrating potential buyers who want instant gratification, and it’s much easier to schedule meetings when my schedule is open.
After a quick stop at WalMart, the girls and I arrived home just in time for the little ones to watch a movie with Dad. By “just in time,” I mean that they can watch the movie and still be in bed by midnight. Tonight is Friday, after all.
