a day in the life, my internal dialogue

Today was a teacher's workday. Rewind to any other day of the school year...our normal routine is that it usually takes an atomic bomb landing to wake Dylan up. And then he still hardly wakes up! Not this morning, not on the one morning where we can sleep in....nope. He was up bright and early at 7am. Of course he was.

We had coffee and eggs and toasts and talked about how to spend our day out of school.

I decided I was sick of looking at the dust in the corners. Well, actually I accidentally used the bathroom downstairs in the basement: READ: Dylan's territory. OMG, after that I decided I needed to CLEAN. So we spent the morning (we meaning I) cleaning, vacuuming, dusting.....I felt much better after it was done.

Then we made our way to Target with the windows down, it was such a beautiful day. Karsen and I wanted a bagel from Brueggar's. Dylan decides he does not eat bagels. Ok.....

Off to Target we go to get snow boots. Yes, I just typed that sentence. Dylan is now in size 8 MENS!  We found a pair that we both liked, and I realized that this was no small victory! One less thing on my to-do list.

The new Diary of a Wimpy Kid book came out this past Tuesday, and Dylan's goal was to get it today with his birthday money he had saved from last month. Target was SOLD OUT. Meijer was SOLD OUT. Start the pouty attitude. Like it was my fault or something. Yes, life is unfair!  Finally, we go to Barnes N Noble....they had it! Mission accomplished. Return the sheepish, sweet look on his face. My heart melts when he says "Thanks Mom". He counted down to the days until this book was being released.



Fast forward one hour, we are back home. I love walking into a clean house :) Dylan is downstairs reading.  I bet he will have the entire book read in the next 20 minutes.  Countdown starts. Karsen is in the living room flipping and jumping to Miley Cyrus songs on Napster. Actually, I am the DJ; as I am blogging, I am finding her fast or slow songs depending on her mood...well actually depending on which "routine" she is working on. She is wearing her new leotard that we got her for her birthday. She loves gymnastics as much as I did when I was her age. <3

I have mentally planned what we will be having for supper. Wondering if we will watch a movie and snuggle on the couch tonight.....Chris Brown, "Forever" is playing now...Karsen thinks this song would be good for a floor routine. Yep, I agree baby! Chris will be home soon, going to start dinner. I love Friday nights.

We got the book on Tues at my kid's bookfair. Jakob finished it yesterday. He LOVES those books. I love that he loves them. And actually I have read them all and I enjoyed them too. ;)

Snow boots. Oh how I long to need those!
