Don't feel too bad for me though...much of my "dead tired"-ness has come from playing hard. Lately we (me and the kids):
- spent an afternoon with some friends at the local zoo. really hot day, but really fun day
- went to the free kids movie at the theater and saw a "Pirates" Veggietales movie. The kids loved it and Alex did great
- spent an entire day at an awesome waterpark with friends. so fun
- celebrated our friend Sam's 6th birthday - it was a nonstop party, from the park to the waterslide. awesome
And today I had 9 (yes 9) of my friends over at my house stripping wallpaper. AND. IT'S. GONE. All of it!!! I seriously can't believe it, I think I'm still in shock - but so excited! Oh yeah, I forgot to mention how many kids were running around playing amidst the wallpaper-removing-chipotle-eating-chaos. 24. Let me say that again for you. TWENTY-FOUR KIDS. (Can you believe we have that many kids between us?!?) They did awesome and it was so fun! Thanks everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So this afternoon I cleaned like a madwoman, Paul cooked up a storm, and we had some friends over for dinner. It was great : )
Paul left for work at 10:30 pm (which is right about when the kids finally settled down in their beds). I had grand plans of washing down, spackling, sanding, and prepping the walls for paint...but here I am.
Hey, at least I'm not sitting in front of the tv right now
