I'm not an old-fashioned girl....

Sunday, March 18, 2012

But today I had so much fun just doing "boring" stuff.

Um, had a surprise morning date with DH.

Went for a walk past the house I spent much of my teen years in. (I needed a MOVE ON moment.)

Ran errands w/ husband to make tonight's dinner fun.

Got my kids to help my mom prep dinner. Mom is BIG on St. Pat's Day!

Took kids to library, then park for soccer play and kite-flying. It was there that I found a four-leaf clover and lost my pedometer! (at 6K)

Later, ran out w/ DH and recovered pedometer.
emoticon Whew! (silly attachment)

One of my brothers (um, I ALWAYS type "bothers"!) showed up, and we had a fun Irish meal of the usual corned beef, cabbage, potatoes. I TRACK. But we talk a lot and laugh. We sit at the table for hours, then are surprised at the time!

The skies clear a bit, and we all go outside to look thru Youngest's telescope. Trying to see Jupter's moons.

After my brother leaves, my parents and my kids and I play Crazy 8's. I suss out when my dad is holding onto 8's---I CAN TELL!!! It's fun.
I guess he's not so good at the poker face with his daughter. No, he's not Eastern European.

Anyway, for some tech-addicts, it was a fun, outdoorsy, interactive day with and without family, and I need to have more days like this on my agenda: spontaneous, tech/internet/wifi-free and interactive with others. I think we've become somewhat reclusive since our economic downturn. :-(

Forging ahead......

    Life is full of the 'small things' mostly.
Glad you appreciated every bit of it.

    I agree I need "more days like this on my agenda: spontaneous, tech/internet/wifi-free and interactive with others" too!
Glad to hear yours was a good day!
