 Carpet for the basement has been purchased, although installation may not happen until next week. I still need to get the adhesive and trowel to secure it down, plus sweep, vacuum and mop the basement floor in preparation for the installation.

Pari was actually hungry after school. I don't know if this was because of the smoothie we sent for her lunch (she usually doesn't eat since the patch has the side effect of being an appetite suppressant) but it's worth exploring. She even did her homework with minimal fuss, which is why she's currently playing Lego Star Wars.

Tonight someone is coming over for some costume sewing, the craft room is still cluttered but will work. I need to get dinner done before arrival so there is no wait. I'd say that the living room could be picked up, but seeing Kiyan flinging blocks around makes me think it would be a vain effort.

I was considering ordering some FX contacts, and also ordering some frames that I could use for costuming. Both cost a bit more than I wanted to spend, but while looking online I found some grey colored contacts for $15/case (10 in each case), which would work for both general costuming. 10 pairs of contacts will keep me good for literally a couple of years, considering I wear them at faire if I dress up, and Halloween (maybe the zombie walk, if I feel like it). 

I wanted to have a whole new outfit done for faire by now, but have done nothing besides order the new contacts. I was hoping for matching family pirate outfits, but the craft room being unfinished didn't help. But the tv room is almost done, which allows me to move some stuff out of the craft room and set it up. I might actually get the kids pirate outfits done by Halloween, although I'm not holding my breath.

I just happened upon them while looking online, they were a good price and free shipping. Sounded good enough to me.
