It’s been a beautiful day in the neighborhood and we’ve been very busy. We dropped Mommy off at work and headed down to the gym. I love going to the gym for three reasons:
- It helps me keep the weight off that I lost last year.
- It gives me a chance for some “me” time as I read on the machines.
- It gives the girlies a chance to play with other kids and different toys.
These girls are creatures of habit. They like things to be the same way every time. Their routine when we leave the gym never varies -- first they do a a bit of exercising on the ab crunching device – they are quite put out when someone else is using “their” equipment.
Once we finally get out the door, they have to play a game of “Ring Around the Bike Rack.”
On to the car seat routine --
The smiling face disappeared from Emma for some reason ---
Home again, home again, riggedy jig. Snack time – a baggie with some Honey Nut Cheerios.
I think they have developed hollow legs – now some cinnamon toast.
Off to a bit of relaxation with a movie – love laying on new pillow pals – the cow and the bear.
Playing with Minnie Mouse “laptops” while wearing Minnie Mouse outfits --
A bit of playing – in the doll bed made by Grandpa for their mommy years ago.
Off to Wal-Mart for lunch and a bit of shopping with gift cards from their new dentist and birthday money.
Off to the thrift store to drop off a huge bag of stuffed animals Grandma cleaned out of the toy bin – toys that hadn’t been seen for months or years seem superfluous in Grandma’s opinion.
Oops – they saw toys they still wanted!! They rescued them.
Mommy is off work at her new job at H0bby L0bby.
They were excited to go home – and Grandma was ready for some time alone.
