I made the most of the day on Saturday. Jennifer, Aunt Darlene, Addie, and I went to the Parent Palooza, the Shop and Stroll, and the Showcase of Homes. Addie was participating in the fashion show for Patty Cakes at the Parent Palooza. Very entertaining! Addie did a fabulous job! Other than the fashion show I can't say that I would attend again. There were only one or two booths that we were interested in. We had a tasty lunch at El Acapulco then headed to the Shop and Stroll. Again, this was a nice distraction, but not a very substantial shopping trip. Regardless of the futility we enjoyed browsing. Later, we made our way to the Showcase of Homes. There were some interesting floor plans and home design ideas. Jennifer found some ideas to help with choices for her new home, and I envied the ability to be creative. We all had a great time and were home sooner than we anticipated. Jeff and I were planning on attending the Brown's Halloween party. However, Jeff was still mowing the yard when I got home and then had to workout. Needless to say we were very late, and didn't arrive until everyone else was on their out. We got to mingle a little with the remaining guests, but missed almost everyone. Finally, a late night trip to get groceries at about 10:00 p. m. These spontaneous trips only remind me that soon it will all change and we will have to plan each and every outing that we take! Oh, the best part of this day was the house was presentable when I returned from town thanks to my lovely hubby! He does yards and laundry! Eat your hearts out ladies! I would be glad to rent him out for $100 a day.
Today was a brilliantly relaxing day! I worked on report cards for parent conferences on Tues., hung out with Jeff, and watched a movie or two! We spent some time sitting outside on the patio, enjoying this wonderful fall weather. I love this time of year. October, November, and December may be the busiest months, but they are my favourite!
