Yesterday was 9/11, the twelfth anniversary of the falling of two buildings (well, more fell, but you know the drift), heroes crashed a plane into a field, and a military post was hit (or something. Trying to figure out a way to NOT say Pentagon, but I failed.
Before school, the kids watched a little of the original live coverage on MSNBC. Madison was horrified, and Ethan was full of questions, as usual. We gave them the story of where we were, how we felt, all of that. This is the first year that they really understand what it means, what happened, and why they have so much focus on it.
My husband was also off for a scheduled day off (USPS carriers have rotating days off), so we had a bit of a date day, without the actual date, :lol:.
Now, on to the actual pictures!
After the kids were off to school, I showered (boy did I need it). I decided to take care of the brows and the other areas where hair grows and I don’t want to deal with it. Waxing leaves my face so red for so long, so I use the hair removing creams. This one is created by Olay, and is really good!
While the car was getting worked on, we went to Target. I want all the games from TableTop!
We also picked up some Lego Series 11 for the kids. I squee’d so loudly when I saw the elf. Christmas is my favorite time of the year. Now I (haha, I) need the gingerbread man, and I’m a happy camper. Madison was thrilled to see the grandma, but she wants the female scientist so badly.
Ethan got a note from his teacher concerning his. He always asks for help, and she turns it around to make him explain it. He knows it but he wants to hear that he knows it right. He’s always been like that.
Number of Pictures: 52 pictures (mix of cell and DSLR)
Best moment of Wednesday: I got to chat up my neighbors. I then realized that I knew the names of all of my neighbors in my building, and even a few in some others. I’ve lived here for 8 years, and this is the first time.
Worst moment of Wednesday: I found out that another neighbor is back with her crazy ex (or is at least allowing him to come over more often). This doesn’t mean anything but bad news.
