Started out at an open house for Alex's class...
Then a drive to Wichita with Daniel for a playdate. The day started out pretty overcast but got nice and sunny later...
Then my first attempt at replicating Mom's peanut butter pie....and my first attempt at making meringue, which was almost declared a disaster. But it worked. I had to make something to take to a Boy Scout dinner for Jared...
Sadly, I have no idea how the pie tasted, as I didn't get a piece of it.
Then a drive to the Boy Scout thing....get a load of (a) how tiny Jared is compared to other kids his age, and (b) the other kid's shirt:
Dinner there was good - especially since I didn't have to cook it or clean up after it - but by the time that we were done eating, I just wanted to come home and crash. Of course, now that we're home and I have the opportunity to do exactly that, I have a million things to do.
We have to get up early tomorrow - on a non-school day - to get Sarah to basketball practice. Not really happy about her having practice when there's no school, but there's not much I can do about it. She's got it Friday morning too. :( We're also going to attempt to do a little bit of shopping tomorrow to get Sarah something for her birthday.
One thing I can say for sure is that I *WILL NOT* be stepping foot inside any store on Friday. I refuse. I hate to shop, and I hate crowds. I don't care how much money I can save by shopping that day - the legal fees that I would have to pay to defend myself from killing someone stupid would negate any savings at that point. I am not a patient person when it comes to shopping - I want to go in, get what I need, and leave. I don't want to have to beat someone up in the process.
One of these years, I'll actually do my Christmas shopping throughout the year, like I always say that I'm going to do.
Haha. Yeah, right.
