Free lunch and free time

Today's Fake Quote:
"There's no such thing as a free lunch - unless, of course, you get lunch for free." - Y. Berra
We had co-op this morning, and for parents' meeting every week someone brings in snacks. Well, today, someone brought a whole tray of gourmet wrap sandwiches! I probably don't need to tell you that I quickly scrapped my lunch plans and pigged out. Yummy! They were from a local restaurant and coffee shop, so I might have to visit there sometime soon.

Co-op days are always good for catching up; they did "school" at co-op, so we don't do any at home. I could catch up with my DVD recorder. I record stuff constantly, but finding the time to cut out the commercials and put the stuff on DVDs isn't always so easy to come by. Right now I have a bunch of movies for the kids, a whole slew of movies I recorded for myself, and a bunch of tv episodes I wanted to keep. The hard drive holds about 80 hours of stuff, and I've only got 10 hours free, so that tells you how badly I need to get it cleaned up!

On the other hand, I have some library books I'd like to read. I just discovered Nora Roberts and can't put her book down. She lives near here, too, so I might have to go stalk her meet her. I just finished a John Grisham yesterday. Love him.

And then there's the house. It could use a little floor scrubbing and de-cluttering.

I think what I really need is a whole week of co-ops. Then I could really make some headway around here.


  1. (is a DVD recorder the same thing as a DVR...is that the same thing as TIVO? we have none of those but they sound very fancy and useful)

  2. Yeah, a week's worth of co-ops would be nice! I guess I could send them to school to get time to clean (people regularly suggest that to me with a straight face!), but ultimately it just isn't worth it.

  3. Which Grisham did you read? I almost bought The Appeal this weekend - I still may

  4. TKW - I emailed you to explain :)

    Jen - Yeah, but at least at co-op I know they're in good hands!

    Cheeky - It was The Broker (from 2005). Before that I read Bleachers, in which one of the characters went to my college at the same time I did - that was kind of cool!
