A Good Night

Today I went Father's Day shopping for Mr. Eris. We got some good stuff - mostly functional, but one fun DVD. While shopping I decided to indulge in some DVDs for the family. I believe firmly that our children should be exposed to all the classics, in order for them to become well-rounded and informed citizens. We brought them home and watched them immediately, with dinner in between. Yes, my children have now seen The Goonies and Gremlins.

Then, as a reward for Mr. Eris's hard work at work this week (including some late nights working from home) I made milkshakes. Oreo milkshakes. My neighbor really loves those, so I made one for her too. Then I got creative and made a soyshake. I recently discovered that soy ice cream tastes like cookie dough, so I was feeling brave. I enjoyed a chocolate and peanut butter soyshake - and it was GOOD!

I also picked up DVDs. I used Father's Day as an excuse. Matt hates to get DVDs as a gift. But I'll wrap them anyway. It's all about the quantity of gifts right?

Goonies never say die!

If it's all about the quantity I am in trouble. Mike gets one present, and that's from everyone.

Eris, thank you for adding to your collection of DVDs. That way I never have to buy or rent anything.

Except two of Matt's presents were gardening tools and I gave them to him early so we could work outside today (he actually just left for Home Depot, I should still be working). Oh well, there will still be a couple to wrap. I think quantity only matters for the kids, who unwrap a cardboard box.
