Lazy Unpatriotic Veterans Day

NaBloPoMo - Day 11

Today was Veterans Day. I had all three kids home with me for the day and had hoped to take them to a community event honoring our veterans. Sadly, I was not able to muster up the strength to get off the couch until 10:00 a.m. due to a wine headache (hangover). 

Then a friend came over with Starbucks for me (thank God). So all hopes of doing something patriotic deflated. I had also aspired to do something cool like kayaking in Dana Point, or a nice bike ride along the bike path, but anything I pitched to the kids resulted in their rejection. All they wanted to do was watch movies, play video games and eat Halloween candy!! 

The only fresh air we got was a small trip to the local playground and a stop at Yogurtland. Unbelievable. My oldest chickadee fussed the entire time about being out, how lame it was, how she wanted to go home and play her video game. I can't tolerate it! Why doesn't she get excited about doing fun outdoor activities?! I should just leave her at home in the future...

After our brief stint of recreation, we stopped by the pharmacy to pick up three prescriptions for my oldest chickadee and her ADD. Unfortunately, since I haven't received my new insurance from my spouse's company, the out of pocket price would've been over $800!!! So...we'll wait to fill those. I'll deal with the consequences.  

Tomorrow I have a phone interview scheduled and Friday I am meeting someone else about a job opportunity. I'm not convinced I'm ready to return to work so quickly, but I think it's probably good for me to have reasons to leave the house each day.
