It was a long day today. Though I don’t think it would have seemed nearly so if I’d gotten more than two hours sleep. 😉 But between hubby staying up late streaming video, the girl waking during the night, and the dogs getting me up bright and early… well… it was one of those twenty minutes here, thirty minutes there nights. And they don’t count for much.
Over all today was a good day though. We didn’t win any more points, but I’m cool with that. It’s nice to share the wins. If the same dog(s) always win it can take the fun and sport of it out of the weekend. More points is always nice, but not having anyone get discouraged is nicer.
After the show we tried to hit the laundromat… but there weren’t any washers available. I figured it would be busy, but didn’t expect a complete lack of free machines. So we’ll make due until we can try again – probably on Tuesday in the late afternoon.
The kid and I played all evening. And it was one of those imagination games where Mommy doesn’t actually have to get up and do too much to be completely involved. Considering I’d been too exhausted to attend the volunteer appreciation supper the Avenue Community Center put on (that I was sooo looking forward to) there was no way I was getting involved in any active play. I rather liked the game we came up with, as I could play it while laying in bed, half sitting up with a pile of pillows under my back. LOL
The girl was a secret agent – Agent Omega was the name she chose – and I was her superior. I ended up with the moniker Purple Bunny. She’d come to me for missions, and I’d send her on hunts for clues, notes, bad guys, and to rescue Agent Stinky Daddy Pants who had gotten himself into trouble and needed an injection of “pure awesomeness” in order to resume his agent duties. As Purple Bunny I did my absolute WORST British accent. Back from my acting days, I’ve still got several accents I can pull out of my pocket whenever needed, but this was a new one… purposefully awful, it kept the girl giggling. It really was a lot of fun.
To top off our evening, we enjoyed a bit of good, old fashioned, gay bacon:
Nothing like a sour yet sweet, gay treat. 🙂
Night everyone! And may all your dreams be filled with bunnies, secret agents, Chihuahuas, and bacon (of the most gay variety).
