doing something different

I have been going stir crazy around here. Chris works from 845 to 730 every day. Sometimes he's home a bit later, or a bit earlier, but that is the norm. Until Christmas when it will be a lot later.

So, being here with the kids for so long in the evenings by myself has been rough on all of us. Until I had the brilliant idea of evening field trips! I have only done them for the past two nights, but it has worked out great.

Last night, we went to the movie store at 630. tonight at 630, we walked to my sister's house and played there for an hour. It was always around 630 that our witching hour began. And no one was happy. But this way, we are all diverted before the ickiness starts.

Now, I'll have to keep thinking about where to go each night. Any ideas?

Parks, high school sporting events, libraries, friends houses, ice cream are all things I would enjoy doing in the evening if I was a kid.

By the way, can you adopt me?
