microwave, band, homework, Nana and Grandpa

Good morning, it is Thursday.

Yesterday was run, run, run. Actually drive, drive, drive. Lets just say it was a busy day, but we did get a ton accomplished. The day started with late start for Preston's school as it was an early release day for the littles. I got off work a little early to be able to make it to the bus stop to pick up Hansen and Lillie, then it was off to Home Depot to buy a new microwave oven for over the range. Our old one died and I just decided to end the frustration by buying a new one. No one really likes the new one because it has a few less features, but it works and looks good...Thanks to Preston doing a great job helping me install it in the short time between when we picked him up from school and took Hansen and Lillie to piano lessons. So, I guess I like it more actually...blaa. After piano lessons we hurried home for a quick dinner and a visit from Nana and Grandpa. Yup, Preston's band concert was last night. We all packed into the van and trekked up to the jr. high school. The concert was very nice. The jr. high band is very good. It is also fun to see all Preston's friends playing in the band and such. Afterwards it was home again and ice-cream time. I did not even mention homework. Groan. Hansen is not the best at managing his time or memorizing his times tables so it took awhile for a bunch of long division problems to get completed all the while Lillie was running around measuring our feet for her homework assignment on the foot-long foot. Preston now can bring his laptop computer home from school, which is not so great to him as it really just means more homework for him too.

OK, yesterday was kind of a crazy day...lets hope today is calmer. Today Maren gets to talk for 30 minutes to Lillie's class about being a Librarian. Lillie's class will love her. No sports or microwave shopping or anything else on the agenda today, so lets hope we get a chance to relax!

See you tomorrow.

If you find that there's a significant difference between the time it takes to toast a toastem popup in a toaster, versus heating it in the microwave, then you need to clear your schedule. [can't remember which comedian said this, but it was a memorable joke for me] Love, susanna

I did pass on the convection microwave...but it does have a "super fast cook" button. Doh.
