’tis raining

By Tara Zandra | April 20, 2007

I wasted most of my morning finishing my book. Eh, it was alright. I admit to losing interest towards the end because I was just ready to be done with it. You wouldn’t think, but it was very politcal and even philsophically religious. I’m glad I read it, even if there was complete, unnecessary, crudeness (which is a better adjective than the “vulgar” I used yesterday) sprinkled in the oddest places. I still think I’ll read another of his books, but in a few months or so. Oh, and how they made this book into a musical is beyond me, I can’t even fathom it.

We did not get to go to Park Day today due to rain. So after I finally finished up my book, I got myself and the kids ready for the day and did lessons with Tabitha while attempting to put Daisy down for a nap. Right now I’m avoiding emptying my dishwasher, but at some point I need to give in.

Tabitha and I were supposed to make bread and potato soup for tonight’s dinner, but again, most of my morning was wasted and it became too late to do that. I’m thinking we’ll make the bread tomorrow and then the soup tomorrow night and it will cook in the crockpot all day Sunday while we’re at Disneyland.

Tabitha had Brownies last night and they had a court of awards. She received her pin for doing cookie sales and also 5 more Try-Its. She’s really motoring through them. She’s been with the troop since January and in that time has earned 11 Try-Its; some with the troop and some on her own. I need to iron all the new ones onto her vest because pictures are coming up soon.

During her meeting they worked on a science Try-It which involved the classic experiment of blowing up a ballon with vinegar and baking soda. Tabitha loves that trick so we did it again when we got home and talked about all the forms Carbon Dioxide takes and its uses. Then she and Chris talked about how and why it’s written CO2. Nice little science lesson there :)

*sigh* I really do need to get into my kitchen now.
