DAY 59 What will they think of next?
"The life of the creative [person] is lead, directed and controlled by boredom. Avoiding boredom is one of our most important purposes." -Saul Steinberg

Out of this boring lunch provided today the kids managed to concoct the twin towers, or so that's what they're calling it.

This is Connor's latest creative money making scam. I went down to tuck him in last night and this is what greeted me. I had to laugh. Today he was totally stickin' to it.

Other highlights:

  • Haldan is still on the outage schedule, hopefully for not much longer.
  • I had intentions to get the kids out of the house until I realized the spring on the garage door was broken. I was stuck without a way to get the car out of the garage until a repair man could make it over and fix it. $210 later we were able to get out of the house around 2:30PM.
  • The kids and I went to see "Tale of Despereaux". After changing seats in the theater 4 times we settled on 3 rows from the front and I had a stiff neck by the end of the movie.
  • The kids both had to write an apology letter to me for last night's trip to TJ Maxx (so I could finish my sister's b-day package- you owe me Shawna).
  • They also had 2 other time-outs in their room and Connor lost his DS privileges for a while today.
  • Connor and Camille played nice together most of the day playing soccer and building dams together, but the other half or so they were at each other's throats- literally. It's definitely a love-hate relationship. Wish they weren't so competitive.

I can't believe I've made it 2 whole months on my project 365! I really never thought I'd make it this far. I have to give myself a pat on the back. I'm still not sure I'll make it the entire year, but I'm still gonna give it a go. It's been quite the challenge. There's days it'll be 9 PM and I have no idea what I'm gonna do. I've found the best thing is just to take gobs of pictures and hope ya like one. I took these photos of the kids today and when I sat down tonight to do my blog I didn't know if I had anything until I reviewed my pics for the day. I love that I can sit and reflect on the day and remember sweet moments, even after a rough, exhausting day like today. They really are good kids with gobs of personality.
