My grandson's visit

May 22nd, 2011 at 07:54 am

Whew! Grandchildren can wear you out! I just took care of one for one day/night and I woke up this morning feeling like a truck had rolled over me!

That said, the visit was a success. We watched movies on Netflix, fed the ducks & geese at the pond, had a picnic breakfast on the patio, had lunch at a Play Place McDonald's, and, of course, the big event, went to see a live theater production of Charlotte's Web. The play was excellent -- one long act, just right for kids, and the players were extremely talented and entertaining. Not cheap, though! After all the fees and such I paid $40 for the two of us. Next time I'll see if I can go to the box office and avoid TicketMaster.

McDonald's was $11.

After I took GS home I had dinner with the family -- and went to the playground. I didn't want to admit I was already pooped!

I sure slept well.

This morning I have been filling out surveys online, and offline I have been cooking -- I had ground sirloin to use (decided to save three patties and cook the rest in crumbles). I think I'm sold on ground sirloin. There is practically no fat in the pan. As long as I can get it on sale...

I also made a breakfast casserole which should be ready in a few minutes. And I went through my frozen bread and took out the heels to make "flat" hamburger buns -- I saw a package at the store touted as low-calorie buns and thought, I already have those in my freezer -- just need to cut them into a round shape!

I've picked up all the toys, still have to strip and remake the bed, and then it will be back to normal!

I told him next time he should stay for two nights, and he said, no, three! Better take my vitamins.

    Staying overnight at my grandma's was one of the best things I did as a child.
