This is SO not what I was going to do tonight

Holy Blog Of Doom, Batman! I just had a cup of tea and realised I have not updated this since I had to start working to pay the ridiculous food and gas prices to feed my kid... You would not believe I spend all my time in front of a computer. I hope you still love me! I am absolutely consumed with discovering time doesn't stand still, commitments, just generally being a slave to my employer, my day is passing in a blur from the moment my child manages to unlock my bedroom door and use me as a jumping castle to 11pm at which point I fall asleep on the couch. I am not complaining though. Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get. I will try to remember I promised you I will write something that makes sense soon. Truly! Until my paycheck dawneth.

It's spring break this week. Let's see, I don't remember Monday, Tuesday was spent at Putters all afternoon with our summer park-group friends, Wednesday...

The feed store has baby chickens and ducks again, so daily I field begging "Let's go to the feeding store and pick up chickens!" I made a deal with her that the answer would be yes if I didn't have to hear it constantly. Once per week, on Wednesdays, just prior to karate class, as the feed store is across the street. We got there early today, to go with plans, and GASP! No chickens. Empty bins. They'll get more April 1. Disappointed Kidlet.

So we proceeded to our next fun thing--we were going to see Bolt! at the cheap-seats-theater, but apparently so was the rest of our town because the showing was sold out. Dejected Kidlet got an ice cream cone and 10 minutes' worth of browsing the toy aisles at Target instead. Just looking, not buying, as we have no money. We did find shoes for her to wear to Nate's wedding in May, to go with her gorgeous flower girl get-up, so the trip to the mall wasn't a total loss. We purchased tickets for Friday's showing instead, so she'll still get to see it.

Thursday we're going to a puppet show with marionettes, The Jungle Book, at our new downtown upscale theater-house. I haven't been inside since they've remodled, so this should be fun. Free show, designed for kids. Can't pass that up.
