Here I am about to start another day of learning with my children. The sun is shining, the bird are singing and the children are at the table quietly eating their breakfast. Ooops, I spoke too soon. Excuse me for a moment please. Ok, I am back. I was just informed that Dd 1 has another sore throat. This is getting old quick. I am going to have to search for some home remedies for the common cold today.
As some of you know yesterday Dh went for a job interview. While he was told that his qualifications were impressive and exactly what they wanted, he was too far down on the list to be hired. With the state you have to be in the top 5 applicants to be hired. I can’t honestly say that I am disappointed. On another note when we got home he found out that he passed his Navy advancement exam. So needless to say he was very happy with that.
We had a fairly good day yesterday shopping at Goodwill. I was a little disappointed to see that they had raised their prices on several things. Give me a break. It is a thrift store, not Wal-Mart. I noticed that they had even raised the prices of movies up to $5.99, not that I would have most of the garbage anyway, but I think that is a little ridiculous. We did manage to find a few skirts for the girls and as always a couple of new purses for them as well. They love purses. What can I say, they take after their mother. 🙂
So after a long day of shopping and a total of driving for 4 hours we came back home, unloaded the groceries and then went outside for some family time before dinner. All in all it was a good day.
