Kid 3 came home elated: his homework continues to collect mouse stamps - 10 mouse stamps = one grab into the treasure box.
Kid 2 came home grumpy. He cheered up once we got to the apple juice press, and he discovered a centuries old linden tree that has a scab that looks like Sauron's eye. Heh, made my day, too.
Kid 1 found his knit hat again. Another kid had found it on the street and turned it in at the school. Maybe there is yet hope for mankind.
Kid 4 was delightful and horrible in quickly alternating cycles.
In other news: more apple juice, lots of walnuts, sewing both by mother and daughter (me for needs, she for fun). Thursdays are always crazy busy but in a good way. The kids discovered they have a week break at the end of the month. Kid 1 has a test essay next week. He may or may not have swimming (instead of gym) in school tomorrow. He also lost his gym bag on the bus.
Oh, I put gas in the car. The price at the pump was 1.56 Euros per liter. (Yes, US Americans, there is a hell. For those mathematically challenged: that's $7.63 per gallon.) As I paid, the woman at the cashier said, "Oh, look. The price just dropped to 1.50!" I had no words. Well, I did, but I should not reproduce them in printed form.
I notice a lot of typos, that probably means I should go to sleep. And that I shall do. Good night.
