Day of Final Post Adoption Visit

I was off work today for Veteran's Day - no husband, no kids.  I get two days like this per year.  I never accomplish as much as I want to on these days.

Today I:
  • took the kids to school
  • rushed home to get Hank to the vet by 9:00 for his annual shots and to have them check a new lump he has on his belly (couldn't confirm or rule out a new tumor, we'll just be watching it to see if it grows any more)
  • cleaned the kitchen, loaded the dishwasher and ran it
  • sorted through and somewhat organized paperwork
  • went to Walgreen's to buy shampoo, cough drops, toothbrushes, etc.
  • drove thru Mickey D's for lunch
  • came home, fed the dogs, gave them pills from the vet to kill fleas, took them outside and then back in
  • put stuff in the bread machine to make bread for dinner
  • cleaned the downstairs bathroom
  • unloaded the dishwasher and started dinner
  • left to go pick the kids up from school
  • came home and continued getting dinner ready
  • our social worker Nikki came over for our final post-adopt report (showed her how to make lasagna while we talked)
  • Tim came home, finished post-adopt visit
  • ate dinner
  • kids did homework and listened to each read for a little bit
  • watched Andy Griffith DVD Tim got from the library while checking my eBay auctions and researching items for my next auctions
  • turned off TV to go start showers
  • checked dogs for fleas (only found dead ones, yay!)
  • hugged and kissed everyone goodnight
  • downloaded picture for blog
Here is a picture of Nikki and the kids on our last visit.  Tonight, I still need to make lunches for tomorrow and get myself ready for bed.

I really need a day like this about once a week, just to stay caught up... but I get 2 per year.

You are an amazing woman! I love days like this - if I could just get one. I do get a couple of hours every couple of weeks. I live for that time!
