First, there was the non-historic day. I got to sleep in (yay!), then we started putting together the pantry. Only to find out, once it was almost completely put together, that we didn’t have the feet for it. Grr. So, either someone messed up in shipping it to us, or someone messed up when placing our order. Because we needed the feet.
This might require another trip to Ikea. Which wasn’t really in the plan.
On the other hand, this could get Hufflepuff her nightstand and bookcase without spending 3x the price by getting it elsewhere. Which is good.
So, after we couldn’t complete the pantry, The Chosen One and I went to The Container Store. For 2 hours. We were successful in finding several solutions to problems we had already defined (yay!), but then we found more solutions for problems that had not been defiled. Which is less yay, because that’s just spending more money.
The historic evening was at church. I brought all 3 girls to the General Women’s Broadcast. We had a ward get-together where we brought desserts (peanut butter balls and chocolate chip peanut butter cookies) and chatted before the broadcast. It was the first time the 8-adult females have gathered around the world to listen together. We heard some lovely talks, mainly about keeping the covenants from baptism through the temple. The temple was mentioned a lot. It was a very nice meeting. Hufflepuff ditched me to sit with her friends, and so did Gryffindor. Ravenclaw stayed with me because I had the colored pencils.
And, because I’m the most awesome parent ever, we went to Sonic for dinner after having had dessert. Brilliant.
Tomorrow is Fast Sunday, and we’re praying for my brother & sister-in-law’s baby to grow strong and healthy.
But now we sleep.
