Today, I got to walk with M. at 2 p.m. and D. at 11 a.m. Oh, and the rest of the T. family, except R. (another R.! So confusing!) who was off with A. and A.'s sitter, aka, "The Adventure Club". But I get ahead of myself.

T. got himself up as per usual. His sitter wasn't due until 10:30 and he is pretty self-sufficient these days, getting a yogurt for breakfast and then wandering around amusing himself. A. was a tougher nut to crack, however. R. and I both slept in, and I eventually dragged out at around 8:30 (boy, tomorrow isn't going to be easy) feeling like I had a bit of a sore throat (yep I do). After getting dressed, and finding out A.'s sitter -- who was due at 9:30 -- was going to be a bit late, I was like, yay! I started putting away some of the doll clothes and accessories that never got put away from the previous evening's playdate. Then I started opening up some of the remaining boxes of doll stuff from Presents Day. A. woke up and started participating in the unboxing and organizing activity, so that was a nice, calm start to her day.

R. fed her pancakes for breakfast, and I've finally figured out how to do 2017 in M&M's on a small pancake (hint: sideways! also, I use a single M&M for the 0, saving some space). D. and R. (the aforementioned from the Adventure Club) arrived. Off went the sitter and the two girls. D. and I were going to walk, but I remembered I had a 10 a.m. phone call, so we had coffee for a bit then she went home. I had a lovely long phone call -- but never long enough -- with K. So nice to be getting back in the routine.

D. and her family (minus R.) and I and their two dogs all had a nice walk. Then D. and I went off for lunch at Julie's Place which is open again after their winter break. We had a lovely catchup conversation; amazing that it takes two meals and a longish walk to catch up after a week, but it really does.

We stopped at the hardware store next to Julie's so I could buy some calcium chloride for the driveway (we were basically out and it has been very icy).

I had a nice walk and snack with M. at 2. Then I cleaned the kitchen sink, range top, toaster oven, counters and ran the dishwasher.

I'm having leftovers (squash soup, brussel sprouts with bacon) for dinner.

There's a lot of cleaning to do around the house, but it isn't too bad and at least the laundry is all caught up on.
