fun, fun, fun

Today is the final day of March Break (the Canadian version of Spring Break, a term we don't use, because it's a crapshoot as to whether or not the weather will be "spring-like"...). My son's sitter requested the day off, and we were happy to oblige, however, I couldn't get the whole day off as I needed to be at work in the morning. So I came in to work at my regular o'dark o'clock, and then my husband brought my son here at a more civilized 9am. The Son got to spend the morning at my office - basically using a free computer to do his Club Penguin stuff, asking me all kinds of questions, checking out all the stickers that line the walls here, and meeting the people that Mom works with. Apart from some shyness, he did really well, and was treated to walk-through of the plant where stickers are made. Yeah, that made Mom's job of sitting in front of a computer seem really boring, and led him to ask why I didn't transfer into the plant.

After I finished up what I needed to do ("Are you Important, Mom?, loudly enough for some senior management to hear, and they happily answered that "Yes, she is". Must bring brownies into senior management meeting next week after that little bonus...), we headed out. I treated him to lunch, then we did some grocery shopping. He got to choose what we were going to have for dinner, and he chose homemade pizza. So he shopped for the toppings, we came home, and he used the breadmaker to make the dough. A buddy came over for the afternoon, which meant they played and I knit, then we made our pizzas, which beat any store bought or delivery pizza hands down.

My favourite way to end March Break - that is, if I can't be at the cottage or other vacation spot...

Sounds it was quite a fun day! I second the 'mmmmmmm...homemade pizza' plan.

Yup, homemade pizza rocks. Homemade pizza subs are a close second. Usually we do those when we don't plan far enough ahead to make hte dough.
