LMAO!! Oh, this thread is fun to read. I'll add my two cents here.

We did church this morning, I made noodly noodly soup for lunch (whew! tough work!) then I did a quick grocery run and vacuumed the upstairs. Kid #1 is out walking the dog with DH, and kid #2 is raking the leaves. I am trying to convince them to go bike riding over to their Gramma's and then maybe I will go for a "nap" too. Heh heh heh.

Dinner is going to be leftovers as I go to yoga tonight and a heavy meal and yoga mean much pain for my belly!

It's not so easy with children around who can walk unassisted and open doors, is it, Alix?

Well, I have to admit being the loser on my bet- for now.

Aidan is taking his nap now, so it is relaxation time for me. I have a big bowl of brown rice with tofu and peanut sauce and once I peel myself off this chair, I will go for a hot long shower. Then clean up a bit :-(

kadesma,
My fingers are crossed that we both get sent home!
They say jury duty is random.. but... I'm not sure I believe it. This is the forth time I've been called.. and I have many friends who've never had the pleasure yet. Paul and I got notices with in a week of each other.. and everytime we've gone there's been someone else there that we know. KING county is huge how can we keep being picked???

I just decided to have a nice relaxing day around the house. Got up at 8 am, made a pot of coffee. Had cereal for breakfast. Played fetch with the dog. Put laundry in the wash machine. Started watching the NASCAR Nextel Cup race at 10 am. Played around on the computer. Loaded the dishwasher. Baked chocolate chip banana cake. Made jambalaya for dinner. My kind of Sunday nothing to stressful. This is my last day of my vacation, so I decided that I was going to enjoy it.
