After the girls and I got back from the race, we sent The Dude back to his house to rest. The kids went outside to play and I made lunch. They came inside to eat, and then went back outside.
Sarah ended up going to a friend's house for the night, so she left mid-afternoon. The other kids came in for a snack, and went back outside.
Then someone (aka "me") got the brilliant idea to head up to the library. On foot. Because, you know, 3.1 miles at a run isn't enough in one day. Let's add another mile or so...
The boys got some movies, Emily got a book or two, I got some books and a couple of movies. For once, the boys actually semi-behaved while we were there.
When we got ready to leave, Daniel announced that he was tired. I knew that he wasn't going to be able to walk the whole thing, but I had hoped that he would walk at least part of the way home. Nope. Wrong answer, Mom.
We got home, the kids played outside, I made supper and they came inside to eat and then went back outside....needless to say they all needed baths tonight. We finally got that done around 8:30 and they all fell asleep in front of the television - I just can't imagine why they're so tired. *snicker*
And I've been trying desperately to tackle the laundry. I'm not making much progress.
I think I might just push it off to the side and go to bed...after I get a shower and wash the stink off of me. Blech.
