Wrapping Up The Week
Well, the first week of school was uneventful (in a good way). The kids did not have much homework so we could slowly get back into a routine. Poor Caitlynne is really struggling with the long days. She is up at about 5:30 am, leaves the house at 6.40 and, with after school activities and the walk home, she is getting home about 3.30 pm. She told me last night that she could not wait for it to be the weekend so she could sleep in. I will believe it when I see it but at least she recognizes that she needs a bit more sleep. Christopher has also been playing in the schools' intramural basketball league so he is getting home even later than she is. He must have some Energizer Bunny genes in him because he just goes and goes. Kevin and I went to bed at 8.38 last night so I think we are all feeling the toll of the early mornings.
PeePorn finished making dinner just as I returned from picking the kids up from school...
A Thai Dipping Sauce.
For what, you might ask? The fish!
Other than being cooked, it is still in pretty much the same form as when we purchased it on Wednesday. I am actually looking forward to trying it and will be sure to report back as to how it was. Caitlynne pronounced it "totally gross" and I don't expect her to give it a go but I am sure Christopher will have a taste as he is the more adventurous eater of the two.
PeePorn also made sweet and sour chicken and veggie stir fry for our main dish.
The rice cooker is amazing! Perfect rice with no fuss. According to the kids, Aunt Jan makes the best rice but what we had the other night came in a very close second.
No big plans for the weekend. Saturday morning will be basketball practice for Christopher and swim team tryouts for Caitlynne. We have a picnic to go to in the late afternoon but I expect it to be an early night. On Sunday, sports practices permitting, we will go downtown to church and then have lunch out. We have heard the Hard Rock Cafe has excellent hamburgers.
