|i ended up downloading Grey's Anatomy, but have not watched it yet. i fell asleep on the couch on Friday afternoon as it downloaded, and have been spending time with the kids since then.
it's been a nice, restful weekend thus far. we went to a pizza party with e.'s soccer team on friday evening, and while e. hung out with other 11 and 12 year olds, j. played with one of their little sisters, and i sat and chatted with moms (one of which i have a history of large amounts of dislike toward, but am trying to get over it, b/c i am no longer the one who is on the verge of middle school). i thought we'd be there for an hour, and instead we were there for two. it was nice, though.
yesterday i brought the girls for haircuts, and they look adorable, then j. had a "playdate" and e. and i drove into downtown (scary!!) to get her the next size cello. it's not only shoes and pants that she is outgrowing.
and then the day was over. whoosh!!
we spent the evening watching Road to Morocco with the kids, and then Gosford Park without. i liked Gosford Park (not that i didn't like the other - but i'd seen it before).
today we have NOTHING planned. NOTHING. we've talked about perhaps going for a walk, and j. likes the idea, but e. does not. we're all still in jammies right now, and i really am not too anxious to change that. i have made my shopping list for a roast i'm making for Tuesday, some muffins i'm making for the girls' "family breakfasts" on wednesday, and for thanksgiving - for which i'm making: mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce.
i think this week's food bill is going to be around $500. jeez.
