Ha Ha... what a day!

Today started pretty early as the x-ray dept at the hospital was a walk in and they were open early.  Caila and John wanted to go to lunch after that so I got to trapes around with the whole family.  What could have been an early day went on, and on, and on.  Stop at Goodwill, now another Goodwill, and then lunch, then Home Depot...

We had lunch at the Dragon Chinese Buffet.  Never has disappointed us yet.  Ate entirely too much and then I decided to have a plate of banana pudding.  I'm not kidding, it was a plate of it.  So many cookies, and bananas and pudding.  I felt that I would pop!  Of course John and Caila ate multiple plates of rice, chicken, shrimp, noodles, etc. and topped it off with ice cream.  Lovely.  The check came and the fortune cookies came; mine was good for once.  I hope that is good luck; it must be, because just as I reached for the bill, John grabbed it and said that it was his treat.  That IS good luck. lol

On the way home we stopped at Home Depot to get paint for the patio set.  This is of course one of the things on John's bucket list for his week off from work.  The new buzz word for this, I understand, is a stay-cation.  I'm trying to get him to take me to the beach come Wednesday or so, just for one night.  We will see... lol While John sanded and re varnished the hot tub enclosure, Caila and Eric, her best bud, sanded down the patio chairs and got started on painting them.  Pretty paint.  We got a color called Rosemary.  Matches the cushions and umbrella very nicely.

Later this eve we made a fire in the pit and chilled for a spell.  I got so tired, wined for my recliner and John gave in and we came in.  Just then the kids came back from am/pm and accused us of not caring about them... lol  We are the ones that felt ditched.  lol  Anyways, we are inside, and they are outside.  I just hope that they do a good job of spreading the fire out when they are tired of it. 

The way I see it, today was a very long day, but we were together 90% of it, so it was a great day!

Now the kids came in... lol  "Did you spread the logs out?" ....
