Staycation Highlights: Day 5 (Wednesday)

I am finding it very difficult to adhere to the "no chores" rule. I may not like cleaning, but I really hate living among filth. It's also very hard to enjoy life with my pretty house all in shambles.

I also had to give Q a pass because he is incapable of not working. My husband is the opposite of lazy. He cleaned the kitchen while I sorted the laundry and cleared away some of the top clutter.

It had to be done. Flies were hovering around the sink full of dirty dishes and the trash cans were overflowing. We were also out of clean washcloths, and it's not like I can call the front desk and ask for some clean ones. Something had to give.

Housework notwithstanding, we were still tired from the two previous days' endless activities. The water park trip, in particular really did us in. A few hours worth of down time was in order. We ended up spending most of the day at home.

National Lampoon's Vacation was on yet again. Mobile Home Disaster must not be pulling in the viewers.

In the evening, we went to dinner at our family's favorite restaurant--Tokyo Lobby. This place has the best sushi in on the west side, if not the entire city.

After dinner, we went to play pool. Q found a billiards hall that's allows children AND is still in business. This establishment seems to be very popular among teenagers. Also, it's not too terribly far from home. I have a feeling we'll be visiting this place again.

On the way home, we stopped for gelato. We got one cup free because I had a coupon. Thanks, Value Clipper!
