My Mundane Musings

Growing up I longed for the fast paced life of big city life and corporate America. Now I’m a stay at home mom of 4 in a small rural community! And I wouldn’t have it any other way! (At least for now).

Rainy days and Tuesdays always… March 18, 2008

Filed under: family,kids,life,shopping — Rebekah Sanders @ 10:19 am

mean lots and lots of laundry! Tuesdays are my equivalent on Monday. Mondays are Chip’s day off. We get to spend the entire day together and generally have a lot of fun. It’s probably like a lot of y’all have on Saturdays or Sundays – which are incredibly stressful/busy days for us. But Monday! I love Mondays! The weekend services are behind us. We have a day of rest before we have to start the push to the next Sunday. And we just like to have FUN!

So, yesterday, we went SHOPPING!!!  Kait and I needed new Easter clothes, so we hit the mall! The Littles were at Chip’s parents house, so it was just the Bigs and Lexi with us.


I interrupt this regularly scheduled blogging for this CRAZY story…

I was sitting here blogging when I heard the refrigerator door open. I thought it was Seth. He’s turned into quite the little food stealing monster lately and is constantly getting into something from the fridge. So, I figured I’d sneak in there and startle him a bit. What I found when I got to the kitchen was absolutely unbelievable!

It was *not* Seth in the refrigerator. It was Daisy. Our beagle/basset mix. Our bagel. Had opened the refrigerator door and had pulled out the leftover stromboli from dinner last night and was happily chomping away. I think I hollered something like “ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!” just as Tom and Lexi walked in the door.

What in the world? How did the dog get the fridge open? Can she do it again or was it a fluke thing? And apparently we have to remember to start using the lock on the refrigerator (it’s really a toilet lock, but it works) regulary. Not to keep the kids out, but to keep the DOG out!

You may now tune in to your reguarly scheduled blog reading…


Anyhoo, so we hit the mall! And it was a VERY productive day of shopping! Not only did I find what I was looking for, but I actually found a pair of brown dress shoes that fit! And were on sale for only $15!!! SCORE! Chip found a shirt he liked. Kait got a cute pair of black ballet flats as her reward for cleaning out the van for me. The three boys all got new polo shirts for Easter. Kait got a new pair of jeans because suddenly every pair she has are suddenly too small or have a big, gaping hole in the knee and I do *not* take kids in public with holes in their knees! It was a long, successful, arguement-free day at the mall! I love retail therapy!

Still shaking my head over that whole dog thing…

And tune back in tonight for my almost-live blogging commentary on American Idol…
