Got to see a friend from high school today. She looks remarkably like herself; not that many changes over the past 15 years facially. But she has two boys now (and a husband). We spent most of our visiting time running after children, but that may be just as well. I have a feeling that if I sat down with her and had a long heart to heart we'd find we were very different people than we used to be. While I suspect I would still like her, such realignments in thinking may be better of coming more slowly. Still, she's in Atlanta, and we'll likely see her again.
We took our guests to the playground behind our house, completely forgetting that it was Easter Egg Hunt day. So 5 minutes after we got there, hordes of small children descended upon us (including the IguanaCoon child) intent upon finding eggs. I managed, through luck, to pick up the "win a prize" egg and (tLD being way too small for such things) hand it off to the Kit.
We came home, tLD napped, and we went out to buy books for her. Well, mostly for her. They're children's books. But as we're the ones who read them to her, we sorta needed new books to read. There is only so many times one can read "Is Your Mama A Llama" before needing something else. We also picked up some summer weight clothes as it's getting hot outside, and a new toy or two for the Bit.( In which I babble about tLD's accomplishments )
My mom is putting an offer on a house nearer to us (yay for closer babysitting) on Monday. It's going to need some work -- mostly cosmetic -- before it's good, but I think it's a good deal for her and just in general. I'll probably see if I can wrangle together a work party for painting, carpet removal and floor polishing in exchange for food and beer. But that's a little later down the line. I hope she gets the house; it really is pretty nifty.
And now off to bathe tLD and hopefully to get her to sleep.
