Liza has been in Aberdeen for 2 weeks and 1 day. She is heading back to the cities tomorrow – and has had many adventures.
Mark and Michael were gone until early Saturday morning – so up until then, there were dog chores, casino chores, house chores, little dog chores, and work chores to be done. Tony came and helped for a week, so that was wonderful. Mark and Michael got home early on Saturday, after having been up for a whole day. We met them at the airport, helped them unpack, and settled in for a day of doing chores and getting organized.
Michael’s 13th birthday party was on Sunday afternoon. Four friends joined us out a the bowling alley and the boys bowled for three hours. We bowled a couple of games, and decided, quite frankly, that we just aren’t that good at bowling. But it was a fun and stress free party, as now that the boys are 13, its much easier to supervise. We were remembering what pool parties at 5 years old were like – and not wanting to go back to that time!!!
Sunday evening was spent doing dog chores, and dealing with little dogs in the house. We watched some TV and just got things organized, and worked on loads of make up work for Michael. Tony left on Monday afternoon, to head back to the cities, and Liza is still in Aberdeen, wrapping things up and waiting for her car to be finished so that she can go pick it up. She’s got a few errands to run – getting ready to head back to minneapolis tomorrow!
Sad about missing St Pats in the cities though. The past couple of years have been reall fun, so here’s to everyone else and drinking green beer! 🙂
