Long, Long, Long, Long...Day

Whenever Kiwi wants to tell about something she remember, (even if it happened five minutes previously), she starts by saying: "Mom, a long, long, long, long, long (however many longs she chooses to make it) day..." Mom: "A long time ago?" Kiwi: "yes, I jumped over the doll in the playroom." Well, today was a long long long day, not just a long time ago.
Currently our church building is having electrical work done and is therefore uninhabitable during our 100 plus degree temps. Our stakes solution to the problem was to send the three wards in our building to sacrament meeting at the stake center with another ward. We go at 8:30am, stay for sacrament, and then go home. This has been the case for the past two Sundays and hopefully will not happen again. The reason being, when we get home at 10:00am, we have to fill the entire day with "Sunday appropriate activities" for our 5 and 3 year old. Unfortunately those types of activities are pretty boring. We disallow television on Sundays, although G-man is starting to note the hypocrisy in this rule since Chad and I turn on the TV as soon as they are in bed. The thing with having kids two years apart is when they get bored they fight. Plus, mommy and daddy are tired from getting up at 6am, so they yell. Combine the two and we might as well turn on the TV all day because that is way more Sunday appropriate than the contention caused by the boredom in our house.
So, I guess the conclusion is we sure hope the electricity to our building gets turned on so we can get back to 11am church and the two hours of entertainment provided by nursery/primary.
