Oh, I wish my mom was close enough to spend the evening with. That sounds comforting. I love visiting home and sharing time like that when we are guests.
After dinner here, we have to get the kids ready for bed and then double-check their backpacks and folders. I think we have a few more years before this phase settles into a more pleasant routine. Unfortunately this makes me a nightowl who looks for a bit of unwinding when I should be sleeping. I'll read a book or visit a forum.
I make phone calls to family and friends, read a book, write in my journal, post on BellaOnline, play music, or watch a tv program. When my boyfriend was still here (he recently passed away) we'd snuggle together on the couch and watch a movie, sometimes giving each other foot rubs.

It depends. Usually I'm playing catch-up with some things I didn't get to during the day or talking to the kids. Maybe getting back online like now. Often we watch a family movie together or my husband and I will watch a movie alone later. Then I read until I can fall asleep.
