Yesterday was Fourth of July. How was your day? Honestly, we did not have any plans. We do not play with fireworks because our son has special needs and the expense of fireworks is never in our budget.
The weather started out overcast and then started raining. Our forecast called for showers throughout the day. I am glad that the rain stopped by early afternoon, which allowed for our area to have a beautiful day!
We did not have plans because my husband sleeps during the day because he works graveyard on Friday and Saturday. He wanted to stay on that sleep schedule.
As I have mentioned before, my in laws are live only 7 doors down from us. It makes it convenient having family so close.
My mother in law called around 11am to say she was going to Trader Joe’s and asked if I wanted to go. Since I wanted my husband to sleep soundly, I took my son with us. With my son’s special needs, taking him anywhere can take extra time and patience. My son loves going places either for a walk or in the car. He loves the adventure. Plus, I wanted to get both him and me out of the house for a bit!
While at Trader Joe’s, I only bought a few things. While there, my mother in law came up with the idea of making hot dogs since it was Fourth of July. I found the veggie dogs and we bought whole wheat buns, chips, and relish! She also picked up the rest of the items on her shopping list.
It was a fun trip. My son behaved and he was in a great mood! No meltdowns or tantrums.
My husband woke up around 2:30pm or so. My mother in law grilled the veggie dogs and brought the food over to our place and we enjoyed the food here.
We had a nice and unexpected and unplanned day! How did your day go?
