Tuesday, 5 pm

It's my least favorite time of day.

I'm bored.
We're just passing the time until Mike gets home from work
and we can eat dinner.


Oliver is singing songs on the couch
while perusing the Mini Boden catalog.
(Have you seen their latest catalog? If I were made of money,
my kids would so be decked out in their super cute fall fashions.)


Mabel is playing computer games in our newly converted laundry/sewing/computer room.
(Our old computer room is in the process of becoming Oliver's new room.)

How do you spend your late afternoons?

  6. Oh, how I wish for life when we waited around for Elliott to get home. We are now constantly getting homework done, having lessons (piano, chess club, and singing group), or getting ready for scouts or legos. Life gets so busy when your kids get older!

  7. Yesterday, I went to the park, and I even walked 15 minutes to get to one. It takes me 15 minutes to go like half a mile.

  8. It's a draggy part of day for us, too. I am usually trying to start picking up the house before Loi gets home and realizes I haven't done jack squat all day. :)

  9. Prepping dinner, calling Ryan to see when he is going to be home, riding bikes outside, or just checking blogs and playing.

  10. Tuesdays are the worst for me too, because Jake doesn't get home til like 7:30. Sometimes we go on walks when the sun is setting (so its not too hot). You guys should hit the park.

  11. sometimes, i sit gracie in her highchair while i make dinner and turn on Friends in the background, just to have somethin on. otherwise, we are just doing nothing and being bored. that doesn't stop her from running laps around the house every 30 seconds.

  12. I hate that 5:00 hour too. I don't know where you live, but here they have Curious George on public t.v. at 5:00p.m. It is the only way I can get my dinner made.

  13. Mini Boden does have the cutest stuff! I send the kids outside or downstairs while I finish getting dinner ready, and watch channel 3 news!
