This post is to make my fellow game playing family and friends just a bit jealous. Steph and I just played a game of power grid in the middle of the day on Tuesday. And it wasn't even planned. It just happened. We take turns watching each others kids on Tuesday/Thursday. When I watch, I clean the house, when Steph watches I volunteer at the school. Today was my turn to watch. Jaxon and Emily keep themselves well entertained and Sage and Holly nap. Steph put Sage down to nap and then pulled up a chair at the counter. I wasn't planning on her just hanging out but since she was making herself so cozy, I told her we should play power grid. Her other option was to go spend money she didn't have, and mine was to fold clothes. Power grid was certainly our best use of time.
It's times like these when being a stay-at-home mom is the best. It's worth the hours of doing preschool, huge piles of dishes and laundry, very demanding children, and on and on. Not that there aren't other things that I love about staying home, but today, a game of power grid and a few more than a few girl scout cookies was just what I needed. Thanks Steph for helping me be "one of those kind of people." And Mike-I hear you are the Utah champ. Just know you've got some competition with the Oregonians.
Ok, time to get back to those huge piles of laundry. They didn't go away while I was sitting around playing games.
