P was out at a junior high school reunion so I was in charge of the little ones. They both got flu shots yesterday so were feeling a bit down.
Spent the morning cleaning out the closet; now have a pile of old suits, shirts, shoes, jackets, and sweaters to donate to some worthy charity. Also sent off a box of old books. BookOff is a used book store chain that buys Japanese books, and they have a deal with Room To Read, a charity that collects English books for south-east asian countries. I think they stock the libraries of factories that employee child labor or something socially meaningful like that. Anyway was waiting for the delivery guy to come pick up the box of books and the kids were moving slow, so I started cleaning out the closet.
After lunch P took off so I loaded the kids onto the bus and headed to Shibuya then walked to the park in Nakameguro for a birthday party of one of the kids at school.
After running around, making balloon animals, and munching on snacks (that was me; the kids spent most of the time at the playground), we headed home, ordered some pizza, took a shower, and got our jammies on.
Ton crashed out on the couch quickly. The Mighty Mo was fighting it, and I didn't have any breastmilk power to lull him to sleep, so after some sniffling and crying and wandering about, and rolling around and sitting on the couch, I finally got him unconscious. Ton was crashed out on the couch so I dragged her into the bedroom and retreated back to the dining room table to be productive (read: facebook.com. boinboing.net) until P came home.
