Today was a very nice and special day... even though I'm now thoroughly exhausted.
First off, we went to do a little shopping, not much: just a few items to take over to my mom's. Then we went to spend most of the day at my mom's. We enjoyed good food, including mom's scrumptious home-backed cookies and fruit cake
Then, DS, Dear Nephew, Mom and my sisters DBF played cards for about 3 hours: I still can't believe DS (who's very hyperactive) lasted so long!!! And he enjoyed himself thoroughly, abided by the rules of the game and impressed my mother to no ends: she rememberbers how hard it used to be to even get him to sit down for a meal!!!
When we came back home, we had to go for some more shopping: had forgotten all about replenishing DS's meds and my own vitamins!!!
The sad part is that I didn't eat healthy, at all. And the only exercise I got was from walking 10 minutes from one store to another, but I did drink plenty of water... so that's a step in the right direction!!!
I didn't get the skates, simply because I didn't go to Canadian Tire yet. I do intend to go there tomorrow. It's the only place I've seen cheap soft boot skates!!! But we do know that the local outdoor rink is iced up and that the Rideau Canal is open for skating!!!
Oh, it wasn't DS who set the fire, it was DH. And it happened when one of his cigarettes (he does
intend to quit one of these days!!!!) fell among some carpet scraps, unnoticed.
