Day Off

10:28 pm: Today was the first quiet day at home without anything planned. I really like these days, where we just get to do anything we want to do. Jet was up three times, but didn't take much time to get back to sleep for any of them, and I'll take easy to go to sleep with much happiness. He did, however, stay asleep until 8:30, when John heard Jet bumping around in his room rather than crying. Jet was playing, and when John went to get him, he was right on the other side of the door, so John had to lure him around the door. That was pretty funny.

We had some breakfast and then went out to do some errands. Johanna and John are having a baby in a few months, and we had promised a care package of things we used a lot. A few of those things we're still using all the time, so we had to get a few of those at Target. John had a few things he had to get from Home Depot, Office Max, and Borders. We stopped by a Wendy's for lunch, and ended up at Safeway and the Cheese Importers for various food stuffs. We got a lot of stuff done, and Jet never slept through any of it. On the way home he was really grumpy and unhappy and cried a lot all the way home.

Once we were home, he got to eat some solids, refused to go to sleep afterwards, played, and two hours later he finally nursed and went to sleep around 4:30 in the afternoon. He slept for two hours. I took an hour long nap while John rode the exercise bike and then I got to ride the bike as well. Jet woke up right at the two hour mark and got to eat off me while John showered and then I got to shower and put on my fleece bag while John made fish fillets, French fries, and served cabbage salad for dinner. Yum.

In the mail, John found a letter from Harry and David's and it told us, cheerfully, that we have been given the Royal Fruit Of the Month Club by Carl!! Hoorah! Fresh, ripe fruit, in season, arriving at our door! I'm looking forward to the shipments. The fruit at the big chain grocery stores are always a bit suspect, and it'll be good to have something to look forward to each month.

It's been a really simple, nice day. Getting to take care of ourselves. Walt and Cathie should arrive tomorrow evening, so that should be fun in a different way.
