It’s the long weekend. The kids have Friday and Monday off. I thought I would have an easy Friday but I was wrong.
I made all three meals for the kids and Mr. O — pancakes, quesadillas, garlic noodles and shaking beef. I did three hampers full of clothes, wash-dry-fold. I dropped off a whole bunch of clothes at the cleaner for Mr. O. Then took the kids to the park. While they rode their scooter I snuck in a bit more than a mile of walk to get some steps. The park is next to the library so we returned books and picked up 28 more. That’s enough to fulfill their reading needs for two weeks. They read for more than an hour in the afternoon, then I let them have their games for another hour while I was making dinner and folding laundry.
Mr. O texted to say that he would leave work at 4 pm but didn’t come home until 5:30 pm. Dinner was great; garlic noodles and shaking beef were well received. Mr. O wanted to take the kids out for some sweet dessert but they wanted to save that for tomorrow and traded that for a movie at home; movie without popcorns. While they watched their movie I went about my way to clean the kitchen and the bathroom. Oh man, I hate cleaning the bathroom. It’s actually Mr. O’s job but he has been so busy lately and too exhausted from work so I do it for him whenever he is unable to carry on his share of labor. I am such a good wife. 😍😃🤩
Talking about movie, they wanted to see Aladdin tomorrow in the theater. I am a bit iffy about it but they like Will Smith so I guess I will give it a go.
