Got a lot of computer time today

By Tara Zandra | May 13, 2009

The girls went off into their room at approx. 9:30 this morning and save for lunch did not come out until roughly 3:30 in the afternoon. It wasn’t some Draconian punishment on my part, they were making a movie together. First they had to figure out their plot line, then they did the “sets” (and I use the term very loosely), then they worked on music. Daisy wrote all the songs, save for one and even ended up singing one of them on the final movie. Tabitha did all the voice overs as the actors were inanimate objects. We all sat down to watch it after dinner and it was quite amusing.

So I spent a lot of time on the computer. Some of it was actual work as I had a bit of Girl Scout related business to attend to, but other than that, I played and I have to say, I really enjoyed a day of nothing. Oh sure, I still did dishes and made meals and put away a load of laundry, but hardly anything really worthwhile. When they were done making the movie, but before Chris got home, Tabitha asked to play on the computer so I used that as my excuse to finally move myself. I worked a bit on Daisy’s dress that I have completely neglected for 2 weeks now. I only got the bottom ruffle on, but it is 89″ so did take a little bit of time. We’ll see if I get to it again tomorrow or not.

I haven’t worked out this week which isn’t good, but on the bright side, other than a few small flashes a day, I’m feeling much more like my normal self. But I still need to work out just because I lead a fairly sedentary lifestyle and I need to keep active for health. But I don’t feel I need the yoga for stress reduction at this time though I’ll still continue it because I do feel it was helping me be more flexible. I’m not a naturally flexible person by any means so anything that helps my muscles be more bendy is a good thing.

Miss Tabitha has just been put to bed (with a tango down the hall, no less) so the next two hours belong to just me and the hubby :)

Edited to add: Strike that, apparently it’s Wednesday, which I momentarily forgot, which means I shall eat ice cream alone and then go wash my hair while Chris watches Lost. Man I hate that show :( At least it’s the season finale and won’t be back for months and months.
