Saturday we were having a nice, lazy morning when WM called to say Jack’s glasses were ready. Grandmom and I took Jack to get them. They look so good on him, and I think they’re really gonna work better for him than the last ones. Though I will miss the green and black stripes of his last ones!
We had chicken salad for lunch. Tj worked all day to get Grandmom’s phone switched over to his old phone. I finished Grandmom’s new doily! And then Grandmom, Jack and I took naps before the show. Tj and Max played computer games while we slept.
The Sleuth show was awesome! There was a long, boring waiting period between check-in and getting to our seats. Our salads were at our places when we sat down. Right after we were seated our table mates sat down; 2 moms with their 3 kids (2 were in college, and one got the kids meal, so I guess she was 12). We realized before too long that some people seating all of us were the actors. Then the mom across from us got busy asking questions! She got us interested in asking questions and starting on the hunt for the killer then. Having good seatmates made it more fun. We’d just sat down and were eating; enjoying ourselves but relaxed. The mom sitting next to me was very quiet. She answered my small talk questions (they were from Orlando but there on a girls’ weekend) but she didn’t make any small talk herself. The room was a little noisy and made conversation a little difficult across the big table, but then we had to choose a spokesperson and discuss our questions we wanted to ask. Our show was watching a live radio broadcast of a shock jock and his partner. The shock jock had wooed and dumped the 3 women working there, and was about to fire the partner on air. He was killed after that, but it wasn’t clear if the coffee was poisoned, if he was electrocuted or if the stabbing was fatal. We discussed our questions with each other, but the across mom and her daughter had recently seen ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ and there several people had had a hand in the murder, and this gave her a leg up on the detective work. She figured out who killed the guy! It was awesome.
The show had a few things that weren’t appropriate for Max which surprised us since there was a kid’s meal option. I assumed with that option it would be completely kid friendly. Nothing was horrible, but Max noticed. Our food was very good: Tj and I had prime rib, mixed veggies (which I traded to Max for his sweet potato), and a small baked potato with butter and sour cream. There was butter and crackers on the table, and at the end we found out that horseradish looking stuff was actually the cheese dip! Heh. We all had the chocolate cake for dessert. It was unremarkable. I should’ve had the key lime pie, but if everyone else raved over the chocolate cake I would’ve been mad at myself for not getting it. Oh well. We got out of there at 10:30pm! That was another thing we didn’t expect.
Sunday morning we slept a little late; Grandmom’s flight meant we would miss church. We took her to the airport, and then went to Petco to get a new leash for Jack’s ID bracelet. I hope this works!
At home we ate lunch and then Jack and I took a nap again! Nice! I fixed his bracelet when we got up…it’s a tight fit, but I think it’ll work. The boys went to the playground and Tj and I took a walk around the campground.
Today we slept as late as we wanted. We played Uno when we were all up. That’s such a great game for Jack, it’s practically school for him: taking turns, matching either color or number, holding all the cards fanned out, drawing one when needed, or two or four when called for. It is school!
School was fine, we stayed in our PJs all day. Wonderful! School was unremarkable for Max. Tj ordered me a new phone and case. If they decided to repair my old phone I’d be without a phone for a while and then the new one would likely come in when he was gone. We felt this was the right option out of all the ones we considered. He’ll try to sell my old one on eBay if it’s repaired.
