How does one spend President's Day when stuck at home with a kid out of school? To me, that means taking a nap or something. To Kid, that means coming through on the trip to Chuck E. Ch33se I've been putting off for a few months and to see all the other crazed fools out of school, too, competing for seating and places on the games.
I'm good on my word, but I made him work for it. I'll post more of the juicy details later, but his next school project is due in a week and he has much practicing to do. He had to run through the whole talk twice before going and once there, I would only give him 10 tokens at a time, then he'd have to come back to do parts of his speech. What a system! It actually worked and made the whole ordeal less an ordeal. Three hours felt like, say, two!
I'd hope for the ever-requested gifts (a picture of J and I together) for the grandparents to work out for a mere token each, but I should have known it was too good to be true. That cheap ass printer spoiled my gift to my mother, but she'll get it this way anyhow. And appreciate it, dammit.
