1) Cayna and Kevin went on a "date" last night. It was so sweet. He got her a corsage and everything. Cayna's dream date included a visit to the park, and her requirement for a restaurant was simply that it had to serve juice. Dessert was at Baskin-Robbins and a VERY happy little girl came home proud of her corsage, her balloon, and her blue mustache from the psychedelic ice cream flavor she picked.
2) Today I hit TWO grocery stores first thing in the morning with TWO kids. I later had TWO parent-teacher conferences and then welcomed TWO in-laws to my house for TWO days.
Bright spots in the day: a kind gentleman working in the produce section busted open a banana and handed it to John and Bethanie for a shopping snack. I coulda kissed the guy. BOTH conferences were easy-breezy. And the in-laws stayed home with the kids after we put them to bed so Kevin and I could go out and mattress shop! Thanks to the feedback on my mattress post, we tested out the TempurPedic and the Sleep Number. We're leaning toward the Sleep Number, but taking our time with the decision. I can tell you that everything I tested out felt SO much cozier than the giant slab of granite I'm currently sleeping on.
3) I cut Bethanie's hair today (because I just wasn't busy enough already!). I can't say it looks perfect, but when you're considering spending 3.2 million dollars on a new mattress, you gotta cut costs somewhere, right? Honestly, that little girl is so darn cute I could shave her bald and her smile would still melt hearts.
4) Tomorrow will be Official Effort Number Three for Kevin and I to run together. We've had two previous opportunities and both fell through. With his parents here, we're going to try again in the morning. So... the question is... will he run slow along with me and go further? Or run fast as usual and then I'll eventually catch up? Oh, and the OTHER question is... who will get to use the iPod? We don't have two!
