Painting, grocery shopping, and other adventures

This past weekend Les went to Miami. As any other wife knows, this is the signal to redecorate or at least do one of those projects that otherwise wouldn't be okayed. My projects were painting the kitchen and the girls room. Don't get me wrong, Les knew about it and even helped me pick the colors and buy the paint. He just was happy to get on a plane and leave the state while the actual work was being done. So I called my parents and they came to help me paint (Mom watched the kids; Dad and I did the painting) If I have to say so myself, we did a great job. I now have a light yellow kitchen and my girls have a pretty pink room. (Les likes it too!!!)
Last night, my friend Cindy and I went grocery shopping together. We both needed a few things and since we live just a few houses down from each other, we thought, why not go together. Who would have thought Wal-Mart at 10pm would be so fun? I think the lack of children (we each have 3) may have had something to do with it. Wal-Mart was such a huge success (we stuck to the list and stayed under $), we decided to go get ice cream, so Sonic here we come! The first Sonic we passed was closed, but that didn't stop us. We found another Sonic, this one was OPEN, and enjoyed 2 Blasts (one Oreo and one Reeses). There is no therapy out there that can beat ice cream and girl talk with a good friend. By the time we got home it was almost 11:30pm. It didn't matter if it was late, it was time well spent!!
As I am typing this, Grace and Charlotte are painting (I am almost afraid to look!!), Jonathon is veggin' out on the couch (Sponge Bob is on the tube), and Ella is sleeping (YEAH!!!!!!). Who knows what the afternoon will bring - bike ride or sprinkler? Only time will tell.
Tomorrow is the first softball game of the season, so Jen if you're reading this, come back for results and highlights. GO ORANGE!!!!
