Today being Columbus Day, I was looking forward to the kids having the day OFF! Which means, I don't get to sleep-in a little, well I don't really get to sleep-in, the baby is still up, but you know what I mean, I have to get breakfast ready, and run the kids to school. We've got a routine down somewhat down, which cuts down on the chaos a little! Instead they get a half day Weds., Thursday and Friday OFF! Which an extended weekend is more like it! Yesterday, we tried to get our haircut. I know Sunday's are a day of rest and businesses close early. I just thought that meant 6pm. My husband was running around doing things for his business, and by the time he got home it was 4, we got to the salon a quarter to 5, and the lady said,"I'm sorry we're about to close!" Working in restaurants, I understand the feeling of wanting to go home, so I wasn't going to press the closing in 15 min issue, so instead my oldest daughter and I went to the Halloween Costume store and got her, her costume. It's a secret, I'm saving a pic of for Kailani's Halloween Costume Contest. I promise a pic of my daughter's haircut. I'm going to trim it an inch or so and see if we can blend the part where she cut it.
Here's a few shoutouts on a Monday morning that brought a smile to my Face.....
Liz posted pics of The Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque. If you haven't been, it is one of the funnest things to go to, and see! I would like to go back and see the Night Flights. Kelly's post about Kid's Responsibilities is up at 5 Minutes for Mom. ChiliHead has posted some great Halloween Decorating Inspirations, to get you in the Halloween Spirit.
Everyone have a great Monday!
