Rainy Day Activities
It's been a dreary day here clouds and rain all day. A perfect day to stay home. But any Mom knows staying home on a rainy day means having to entertain the kids while trying to be somewhat productive.
It's been a pajama day.
A little extra TV time day.
A day of cleaning the kitchen, laundry (aka the usual), and trying to play catch-up day.
A day I finished the instructions for Kayla's upcoming Kindergarten year which goes along with her safe snack boxes. I had to make a second one this year since she'll be in two classrooms this coming year.
A day I started shopping for a new VCR (mine is on its last legs) which has shown me there are no more inexpensive alternatives. They're all VCR/DVD combos. I don't need a DVD player, only a VCR.
A day I priced a DVR which I'd love but learned it won't fit into our budget right now. In the process I learned my Fios bundle period is ending next month. Which means my price will go up by $50. But...I could rebundle for only $10 more (no other option really) and this time I'll get Showtime and HD (even though I don't have an HD television). But the icing on the cake is I'll get Wifi on my laptop. And not Wifi in my home, but Wifi that goes with me wherever I go. I can go to the airport and get free Wifi access through Verizon. Talk about making my day!!!
I made pizza dough in the bread maker for dinner tonight.
I made some more Power Balls.
I took sugar cookie dough out of the freezer and made cookies with the girls.
I made Kayla's day by washing her new bathroom (bought on clearance last year for $5) and she's wearing it around the house.
And I'm hoping for a relaxing night tonight while possibly munching on a few of those cookies.
So it was a day of productivity and quality time with my girls. Sometimes rainy days aren't all bad.
