Today was very long.

Jason stayed home from work again. DirectTv was to come out again to upgrade our receivers to HD (high definition) between 8-12. Well guess what? Again, for the 3rd time now, they didn't show. Eventually he showed up like an hour late and then there was a big problem because they had put in the wrong order so after many calls to DirectTv and the local distributor and threats and pleas and headaches things were finally straightened out. Hint: If you have DirectTv, you can get pretty much whatever you want if you threaten to leave. The sales people may say it can't be done, but the cancellation department always works it out.

Our original plan had been to go to the Everett Childrens Museum after the kids got up from nap. Due to the stupid DirectTv people, we didn't get out of here till almost 2:30 (the place closes at 4). We got there and had a really good time. We were able to go up to their Rooftop Adventure which was abso-freaking-lutely awesome. Like, that alone would be worth the price of membership. So cool. Here are some pics.

(yeah, we know!)

After we got home and corralled Tilli (she escaped by busting out a screen while we were gone), I went to Target to return some things and pick up a new hair dryer. Then off to G.I. Joes to return something else, then over to Ace to see if they had fence boards (nope). While I was there, I was inspired by their garden area and I picked up 3 rosemary plants (for a rosemary hedge), 2 thyme creeping plants (for ground cover around my lavender), a dahlia for my porch pot and a purty bush with purple leaves for my backyard.

After dinner the kids and I and Jason planted everything and got the (very cranky and tired) kids to bed.

Tomorrow? Lots and lots of cleaning. It never ends. Sigh.
