Glad it’s Friday

The zoo trip was great. We had a really good time and the kids were fun. Another mom and I had three boys in our group and it was sure tough to keep up with them. All very active and very energetic. We, of course, had to go see the snakes and the lizards first. Then on to the spiders and then finally the sharks. All ew factors for this mom. haha

We had lunchy in the picnic area and the kids were ravenous. Then it was off to look at other animals before time to regroup with the others. We saw the hippo, the rhino, the elephants, the lions, tigers, bears (oh my!), and our final stop was the monkies and gorillas.

The gorillas are cool. They have these viewing rooms where only a pane of glass separates you from the gorilla. The kids thought that was cool because they could walk right up to it. But this particular one had a special gross-out moment. As the five of us are standing there, watching the thing, it decided to first shake its head back and forth and then up and down. Then it barfs in its hand. We all shouted “EW!” and then again when it decided the stuff in its hand was a…um…delicacy.

Sweetie went running away shouting, “GROSS!”

He said it was NOT his favorite part of the zoo. haha

Almost all the kids slept on the bus ride back.

After we got home from school, I went for an much overdue oil change in the car and then off to Target where I spent way too much money. But what else is new? I got the baby Night at the Museum and we’re watching it tonight! It’s movie night at our house.

Saturday I’d like to make a trip to Ikea, but I’m not sure about that yet. I’m dying to get the TV bench to go with the rest of my furniture and call the living room done.

I have had ZERO time to work on the book which is disheartening to say the least. I’ve got all the ideas in my head, I just can’t seem to get them down on paper. Doesn’t help I’m exhausted every single night of the week. I hope to get same pages in tonight and this weekend.

At any rate, I’m certainly glad it’s Friday. And looking forward to having the next two days off.

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
