saturday morning was building cleaning. we share our church building with two other LDS congregations, every third month, our ward is in charge of cleaning. the kids got up willingly, maybe not wantingly (ethan's turned into a true teenager who grunts. i had to laugh, he used to be a morning person until just recently. it's kind of cute actually), but willingly, and we got the church cleaned in less than an hour because so many members showed up. usually after building cleaning we'll go out to breakfast (a 4 times a year treat for our family). but this particular saturday, kel had bishop stuff to attend to, so we postponed breakfast. annie and i went grocery shopping and had a discussion about $4.39 deodorant (the kind that she claims smells so very good--my retort is that no one should be smelling your armpits) versus $2.99 for a two pack deodorant (the kind i buy for myself and i know it works just fine). i told her if she wanted the kind that smells so very good, she could pay the overage. she wasn't too keen on that. it's time for her to get a job and buy her own beauty products. she ended up with the $2.39 deodorant that smells pretty good. i love that girl. i'm already counting down to when she goes away to college and it makes me weepy. i still have two+ years. i need to stop counting down and just enjoy.
when kel got home from his meeting we went to einstein brothers. i love the artwork in that place. so very funky. i got the thin bagel BLT (400 calories mom!) and it was a near perfect sandwich. it was just fun to spend time together. it sounds like we've been eating out a lot huh? i'm still not into home preparation mode after being in LA. i did make dinner last night :)
the rest of the day was filled with the normal saturday things, but it was still a good day.
today is my friend ronda's birthday. she's 40. she's testing it out for me. i like have older friends :) happy birthday dear ronda! p.s. i'm really not worried about turning 40, i hear it's a pretty good decade.
and that's it. it's off to church now. hope today is a lovely one for you too!
