Read this story to practice -ed sounds.Yesterday I was so busy! At the office, I worked hard with my team. We developed a new advertising plan. Our meeting lasted about two hours. I remembered an advertising plan that worked five years ago, and I suggested we try that again. We needed to get the manager's approval. We called him on the office phone. He admitted that the idea seemed good, but he believed we should lower the budget. We reported our numbers to him and we talked about the budget for a long time. Finally, he decided to give us the money we wanted. On the way home, I stopped at the mall. I had promised my daughter a new MP3 player for her birthday. At the electronics store, I played songs and I listened for quality sound. I decided to buy one very colorful.When I got home, my son was washing the dishes. As he washed the dishes, I sat at the kitchen table and talked to him about his school work. Last year, he applied for an advanced program, and he passed. He is happy with it. He started telling me about his classes and what he learned during the day.
