Today was a good day. We have seemed to have a lot of them lately, which I am certainly thankful for, but almost have a feeling it is merely the calm before the storm (as any mother with young children, or any aged children, can attest).
We managed to salvage all of our food from our fridge/freezer breakdown. My husband called our appliance repair man at 8 am and he was at our home by 8:30. Fortunately, it was something that could be fixed and only ended up costing us $120. (We were bracing ourselves for the possibility of having to buy an entirely new unit) Disaster averted.
We spent the later part of the morning and the early part of the afternoon visiting with my grandmother. My sister and her four children also came by so the kids had a great time playing with their cousins. My daughter has really blossomed socially lately and seems to really enjoy being around her cousins and all of her new dance friends.
Since it's Thursday my daughter had dance class this evening. My husband was able to get off work a bit early to come watch. The teacher was kind enough to let him sit in on the class since he has not been able to come to one yet. Our daughter was surprised and very glad to show off her moves.
We capped off the evening by going to dinner with my mom and my sister and her children after dance class. I feel like we've been busy and on the go all day, but it was a fun day and the kids were great and my husband is off tomorrow which makes this evening more relaxing. Now, just looking forward to listening to Obama's speech.
How was your day?
