Brunch Play date
Today we had a play date for "brunch". Great group of Moms and kids, but I paid for breaking
my "never leave the house on Monday" rule. Princess has been staying up late and sleeping in lately
and I woke her up today at 5 minutes before 9 am to leave for our play date.
She was fine, until we were there for about 1 hour or so, and then it all came crashing down.
Rude, badly behaved....I was embarrassed. I also knew it was my fault.She is always more tired on Monday, and
needs to have a "down time" day with no outings, or visits. Just us, at home, jammies..all day.
Farmer Dad goes back to work and we chill. I really wanted us to both have our play date, and I paid.
The drive home was disagreeable and when she finally conked out, I knew I would pay for the unscheduled nap as well. We picked up lunch on the way home...yes I bribed my daughter with junk food from a drive thru window!
We had just settled down when my brother-in-law stopped by to help Farmer Dad with some work on our house.
She was delighted to see her uncle, but still not fit for visitors. I sent her to my sister's with my niece and her boyfriend where I hope she is having fun..at least it is quiet enough here for me to check my e-mail and download some pictures from earlier today. I even got out to the garden to help pick some tomatoes (those the ground hog hasn't taken one bite out of!) and black berries. Don't hate me because my daughter and I are both cranky...we'll be more agreeable tomorrow...I hope. Now I will try to load up some more pictures of our messy garden on the garden blog.
