Our favorite roomTuesday, April 21, 2009
The dining room is our favorite room in our home.
When the kids were younger, we were in this room every single night. Now with everyone’s busy schedule, Monday is the only weekday (for now) that everyone gets to be together. No TaeKwon-do, no choir practice, no gymnastics, no band practice, no music lessons, no track and field, no other activity than be home with the family!
Dinner time, I’m usually providing some laughs since I come up with words that I have no clue what they mean – words I hear on the news and not realizing that they mean “not-good”. How would I know what “tea-bagging” means? Only my 8yo and I are confused why everyone laughed when I asked what that word meant.
As we savor left-over chicken, pasta and spinach, thunder and lightning provided added “power” to our “power-down” kick-off day.
I was tired so I guess my verbal skills were way-off when I said, “Its snasty outside!”Of course, every one laughed again…
Dad commented that “its raining cats and dogs” – I actually had to ask him why they call it raining cats and dogs. (Of course, dh provided me with a history lesson …)
As usual, I'm happy to provide some entertainment to my children with my ewok moments.
