Not so typical Thursday


Today should have been a typical Thursday in early August for us. The Elder Cracker Jack should have been working on his test prep (just to prove that he's made it through fifth grade) and the girls should have been enjoying the day off. Instead the morning started with a trip to the doctor's for Father, he's alright but it gave us a quick scare when we got informed we needed to come in unexpectedly. The Elder Cracker Jack DID start his work on his test prep after we got home from the doctor's office, but quickly got involved in an abundance of other things - helping clean up construction mess outside, cleaning inside, preparing lunch while I did more cleaning, more outside cleaning. By the time we actually noticed the time it was already past 3pm! A quick call later and we were on our way to Grandma's house, with a quick stop at one of my friends mom-2-mom sales.
Well, it was supposed to be a quick stop but we stayed and visited. None of the kids had seen each other in about eighteen months. And I got so wrapped up with visiting that I completely forgot to BUY anything! I hadn't seen my friend for as long as the children hadn't seen her kids, and I hadn't seen her parents (she was holding the sale at their house) for about twenty years! We were there for an hour and then decided that we should probably get over to Grandma's house for a quick visit.
By the time we got back on the road it was after 7, so instead of BLT's (with turkey bacon) and soup for dinner we made a quick stop for pizza. Then it was home, eat, quiet time (quickly), and bed.
Not a typical Thursday at all, but I do wonder if all that cleaning could be counted as a mix of home economics and shop?
