I spent my morning washing the last of the dishes, and scrubbing out the microwave. I also did some loads of laundry. When Z got back we went out to the grocery store. Osher Ad was a mob scene. It took us an hour and a half to get in, through, and out - and we barely needed anything. Just vegetables and some dairy stuff. Ridiculous. We dropped the groceries off at home then we kidnapped a vaccuum from The FamBily House. While the ovens were kashering we cleaned all three couches and all of the rugs. I also washed all 400 ball-pit balls and did a wash of stuffed animals. We also cleaned some hard-to-reach corners. Then we returned the vaccuum and kidnapped Frank on our way to the spice store.
Also Debs had a baby boy - so that's an exciting mazal tov to 'shout out'!
I blanched and peeled 2 cups of almonds - then turned them into 3liters of deliciously creamy almond milk. I may have gotten Buzz hooked on chocolate milk.
We didn't spend all day in the kitchen though. We actually spent the whole morning out of the house. Z got me a special and exciting Pesach present - a food processor and hand mixer! Then we went to the mall to let Buzz get out some of his energy.
We were pretty relaxed when candle-lighting time arrived. Z went out to shul. Buzz stayed up for dinner then went to sleep without too much fuss.
Shabbos morning we walked over to The FamBily house on the early side. Lunch was delicious and fun and after a few hours we decided to make the most of the nice weather and we walked back home - Phil came with us and hung out until a little before the end of the day. Buzz was zonked even though he took a 2 hour nap in the afternoon and he went to sleep right after havdala.
Now it's morning again and there's nothing much to do besides for taping up littler 'chametz' signs on the kitchen cabinets that we're 'selling'. We're trying to find something fun to do today because tomorrow is a nice long day too. It's not too sunny and hot out so maybe we'll just have a picnic out at the park - that could be fun. I'm going to go suggest it to the guys.
