A phone call around lunch time changed the course of the rest of the day. Our coworkers (who are like adopted grandparents for our kids) wanted to know if they could come over and play games and visit in the afternoon/evening. They were going to bring dinner but I was in the middle of fixing something so I said I would just make two more servings and then put it in the fridge and cook it when they got here and we would grab sandwiches for lunch. We don't have that many opportunities to just get together and have fun with them and they knew we were housebound because of being without a car. We all enjoyed the unplanned visit but it meant that the only thing on my to do list that got done was the two loads of laundry. ("grandma" helped me fold and put away each of the two loads) And the upside was the major pick up that happened in the living room and dining room area. Now the house looks nice for tomorrow and we will just keep the same list of little bites for Friday.
