No, I didn’t get any jewelery or trips to fabulous warm tropical places (I could only wish), but I did get served breakfast in the dining room.Â We have “fancy” oatmeal and tea.Â Basically we had porridge in fancy dishes, and used my fancy teas cups.Â It was really fancy. *snort*
I opened all the kids
crap lovingly made treasures and oohd and aaahhhd appropriately, then we went to church, where I’ve discovered that I’m getting a little too round for my guitar to be hanging off the front end of my belly.Â I have to play once more in 2 weeks, and then I think that might be it.
After church, we came home and Jon had made a pork roast, with potatoes and veggies and gravy.Â It was delicious!Â Apparently, Jeremy likes potatoes – Can you tell?
It was a nice day, and probably the nicest part of it didn’t even happen to me.Â We told Chris that it was Mother’s Day today, and just left it at that.Â We didn’t tell him that he should do or say anything to Momma, but the next time that she came into his room, he motioned her over and gave her a kiss, and told her that he liked the shirt she was wearing.Â See, like I said, it didn’t even happen to me, but it was pretty special to be there to see it happen.
This morning we had another wonderful, amazing, mind blowing thing happen.Â We’ve been rotating through 3 breakfasts at our house – Oatmeal, EggsÂ & Hashbrowns, and Pancakes.Â We have had milk alternatives available, and even had a bag of Kamut puffs in the cupboard, but the kids weren’t far enough removed from regular milk and regular cereal to really “buy into” eating this new crap (as they thought of it).
Well, apparently, two months of the same 3 things for breakfast and no cow’s milk or cereal has broken them down.Â We got up a bit late this morning, and I suggested that Jon offer them cereal with Rice milk, Kamut puffs and Maple syrup drizzled on top.
They scarfed down a bowl each, and them came back asking for a second.Â It was the easiest breakfast that we’ve made in 2 months, and while the cereal is a bit more expensive, we will add it into our rotation maybe once or twice a week.
Jon took me to Starbucks this morning, because we were having an Administrative meeting.Â He brought his Administrative stuff, and I brought my administrative stuff, and we had a coffee while working on our respective “stuffs.”Â It was quite nice, and I even cheated and had a big ol’ piece of carrot cake.Â
Well, I’ve got to go and do some work for Jon, and then get busy cleaning the house!Â Hate Housecleaning!Â It never ends!
