Today we had no hard commitments, so I planned to make some headway on our taxes. But it wasn't raining all day for the first time in a while, and I'd rather do just about anything than taxes, so I spent a little time in the garage doing some much-needed cleanup and giving away of baby toys.
Katrina enjoyed the better weather too.
Borrowing your brother's skateboard stuff is a lot easier when one brother is on an emergency playdate (Lance's mother needed Julian keeping Lance busy almost as much as we needed Julian not pestering his siblings!), and the other brother is procrastinating his book report. Gabriel spent the entire afternoon indoors to do a few jobs on his poetry book report that should have taken him an hour if he'd just done it. As it was, I was rushing him to finish those tasks after his bedtime, when he lollygagged around for an hour at a time.
I guess it wasn't all lost time -- the only entertainment he had was reading the poetry book. At least his skateboard saw some action!
