BTA: Day Two

I think this the first party where the kids getting presents has had such a serious effect on our time over the next few days.

Ziad has been doing a jigsaw puzzle on and off since Sunday night. Maya has been engrossed in learning the ropes with her Webkinz froggy. If I'd really understood how time-consuming it would be, I'm not sure I would have been so "Well, OK," when her friends mom asked if it would be an acceptable present.

I remember when they used to make little electronic Tamagachi that kids would carry around with them. There was a big flap about kids taking them to school. Anyone else remember them? These little virtual Webkinz are in some ways much worse, being as they need feeding and exercising and that you have to earn the money to buy the food by playing online games.

Foodwise, we're still plowing through the leftovers. Macaroni and cheese, chicken and rice, blah, blah, blah .... Most of the cake is in the freezer now, just a few pieces wrapped up for desert tomorrow.

Housewise, we had another busy day (even without the Webkinz) so not much housework got done. All dishes, glasses, pots, pans, etc. are now washed and put away. When I woke up this morning I planned to get the garage car-ready, but I went downstairs to find that the garage fairy had been busy during the night. All the tables returned to their places, all the blankets folded and put away, and the floor swept to boot. I love the garage fairy.

A few more school-related items have found their way to the school table, but I am still staring at three stacks of paper and stuff that need to be sorted and returned to their proper locations. Until that happens, though, my kitchen is looking pretty good. Things could be worse.

Henry was addicted to a Webkinz for awhile (I really wanted the pug so we got it for him), until he decided on only playing video games and let me do all the care taking. We disagreed and he stopped playing. Do you know the membership is only good for a year?
