Staycation: Day 4

Things that made me happy today:
1. Rain
2. Sewing AND completing two special order dresses for a special friend
3. Ice cream (will probably make me sad, too...)
4. Enjoying a text-message LOL with my daughter
5. Bubble wrap!
6. Michael Buble (oooohhh yeah!)
Day 4 of our staycation was detoured from our original plan due to the baby having a slight fever (teething?), and the torrential rain that poured most of the day (yay!). The 3 older kids really had a problem with that situation, after all, I had promised them something fun every day this week. Think, mom, THINK! Well, it IS raining...a nice, slow, soaking rain....
Mom: "Kids...why don't you go play out in the rain?"
Kids: "YEAH!!!! LET'S GO!!!"
Mom: "Whew..."
So, out comes the camera, and the day's fun starts.....until the thunder. Ugh. They did get to play for about 20 or 30 minutes, though, before it became potentially dangerous. Cost: FREE
When they came in, they were content for a while, then the whining began again. So, the thinking cap went on again. LIGHTBULB MOMENT!!!
Bubble wrap.
Yes....30 sweet, poppy, stress-relieving feet of it. Oh, the simple joy of popping those little pouches of air. We jumped, walked, squished with our toes, twisted, & one-finger-at-a-time pop, pop, popped that bubble wrap. The day was saved once more. Cost: $4.40
This day didn't turn out like I had originally planned it, but it was still a pleasant, if a bit...ummm...whiney day.
I keep trying to post pictures to go along with my posts, but I'm not having any luck. I would like to make this more interesting....It goes through all the motions....then, nothing. :(
