Breaking dishes

Why is it, when you break a plate, it is never the one that already has a chip??

Rare day today…the boys were over at a friend's house and Jeff is on a "guy's weekend" so I was in the house absolutely alone! Got some more raking done (still sort of on top of the leaves…although it is a bit disheartening to realize that I am re-raking the same areas for the 3rd week in a row and there are still tons of leaves left on the trees), pulled together some birthday/Christmas ideas for my dad, cleaned up a bit. The problem when you have the whole day "free" is that it can be overwhelming to decide what to get done…and then you spend the whole day doing a little bit of everything and feeling like you got nothing accomplished.

Well, I am determined to make it to bed by 11pm tonight. We (the boys and I) are driving to Virginia Beach tomorrow afternoon to spend Thanksgiving week with my in-laws (Jeff will be joining us on Wednesday). Another perk of homeschooling is that we can go and do what we want, when we want. :o) I am hoping to go to a few museums, squish a few pennies and see Harry Potter IV with Jason.

Off to pack some more and then to bed!
