It’s really not so bad if you have minions to put away the folded piles you create.
We did some chores to iTunes this morning, taking frequent dance party breaks. Worked really well… until it came time to clean [insert horror movie muzak here] the bedrooms. Well, at least the front of the house is presentable, right??
Though perhaps it was a mistake to clean early in the day. That leaves HOURS until the evening time to return the house to its previous condition. LOL.
We got snow on friday. There’s still a little bit left. The boys don’t care how little is out there right now, they are loving it. This is a good thing. Though give it a few weeks and the novelty will wane and they’ll be bored again.
I thought the snow would make me sad; as if the second change in seasons would somehow remind me that I’m not working anymore. Not so much. This is a good thing.
Instead, I got to enjoy watching it fall. Instead of dreading the longer commute to and from work, the battling to get the car going through deeply rutted intersections, getting stuck behind snow-driving neophytes who can’t go above 15 mph… no more! I just get to watch it fall and drink coffee. Or cocoa!
Speaking of cocoa, we get this wonderful “land o lakes” stuff at Costco. “Flavored” cocoa: caramel, raspberry, mint, dark chocolate, etc. It’s delish! And full of high fructose corn syrup. But worth it. :)
Can you believe it’s only 40 days away? The darkest day of the year is only 36 days away… then we get to climb back up again!
In our family, Christmas also means BIRTHDAY. Our boys were born 4 days before and 4 days after Christmas. On the 21st and the 29th. No lie. According to the Aztecs (or Mayans, or whomever), the last day of the world is on S’s 7th birthday.
So we have some shopping to do. And party planning. The party planning is the hard part for me. Mostly because my marketing department needs some development… C doesn’t have very many friends. Add that to the Christmas holiday at school… yeah.
So wish us luck! Life is about to get crazy!
