On Friday, Brendan's school only had a half-day, so I took off work early. Joe actually had to work late, so the boys and I had our Friday-night pizza and watched the movie "Ernest Scared Stupid". The boys are into stupid humor, and since it is close to Halloween I thought they might like this one. Parts of the movie scared them to death, and other parts they were laughing so hard I thought they'd pee their pants. lol
Saturday I had to work a few hours, and then I went by the library for their children's book sale. Hard back books were 50 cents, and paperbacks were 25 cents. I found several chapter books for Brendan, including 4 Goosebumps ones, which he loves. All in all I came home with 14 books for only $3.50!!! What a deal!
Sunday we took the boys to a free showing of Space Chimps at one of the local movie theaters. They liked it, and Joe and I actually thought it wasn't too bad considering how horrible we'd heard it was from others. The rest of the day we tried to be productive at home. Joe worked on the mudroom floor, and I dove into the huge mess in the basement (the part that we are turning into the kids' playroom). What a job! I did make good progress though, and really put a dent in the cluttered mess. Still not even close to being done, but getting there much faster than I thought I would. I'm taking pictures along the way, so you can expect some extremely embarrasing photos of our mess before too long. lol
