Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

Well, it's almost midnight and I'm exhausted. It's been a long day of doing last minute things for the crop tomorrow. Tomorrow is the fund-raising crop for the Divisional Youth Band. The food is bought, the bags are packed, my stuff is ready. It will be a very busy day. Spencer and Jennifer (Pat's daughter) will be coming along to help out for the morning. Then they have to leave around noon as they have a concert in the afternoon. They have no idea what's in store for them. They will be peeling potatoes, setting tables, carrying bags, playing solos, and doing dishes. I think by the time noon hits they will be so glad that they have to leave.

Tonight we were at Cathy and Don's place. It was Don's 50th birthday celebration. We went skating outside, in the extreme fridgid temperatures ... OK, I didn't go, but everyone else did. I was the hot-chocolate runner. I stayed in the warm car and went to Tim's to get everyone a hot chocolate.

Afterwards we went back to their house and played a game of pictionary. It's bee a long time since we've played that. I was amazed at how well the boys did. It seemed like they were all on the same wave length. Maybe because they're brothers they were of one mind. It was all very strange.

Anyway, it's been a long, but fun day and I have a busy day in front of me tomorrow. I'm not looking forward to waking a 14 year old up after him only having 6 hours sleep. Yikes!


  1. Since I'm a terrible skater, the position of hot-chocolate-runner would suit me just fine. Let us know how the crop went.

    I hope the crop went well... I wish I lived closer so I could tag along to one of the awesome events you keep organizing! :D
