So the rain won't stop will it. And we have three weeks off of school with no place to go. No visitors coming either. So last nite I had a great old pity party and was depressed. Like what the heck I'm I going to now in this endless rain with no school? bye bye backyard play, bye bye walking around christmas lights, bye bye park, bye bye zoo, bye bye fun. Plus I was moaning that we weren't going anywhere and boo hoo, whine whine do you get the picture? Fortunately Jason doesn't pay much attention to me and is used to the crazy.
BUT , when I woke up this morning I felt better. Silly nitetime sadness. Now I'm ready to tackle the week (or else super fake like it which I think counts just as much).
So here's what my plan is. Do whatever I want that makes me happy, which in turn makes the kids happy. I've been dying to have some wassail so I woke up early and went to the store and bought the supplies. Plus some chips and cheese/salsa dip, our like fifth bag of clementine cuties, cucumbers and some eggs. Lots of eggs for yummy breakfasts. Funny how food so influences my feeling of control. Plus I figure I needed to go to the store while Jason was home (at 7 a.m.) and even already had red lipstick on and a Coke Zero....now if that its sending the world a message that this lady is ready to tackle the week of horrible rain, what the heck is?
So here's what we will do....
Make lots of wassail. Possibly a new recipe everyday. Did I mention that my kids don't drink it? Hmmm....I'm gonna have to pee a ton. Today was Cranberry.
and some Texax sheet cake, I love you Paula Deen. Did you know that she is the grand marshall for the Rose parade?
Sugar cookies. Sugar cookies alone is quite a project.
Hmmm..what else. Oh yes, watch every Christmas cartoon possible.
Puzzles, playdough, legos.
Invite kids over to the house to play with my kids and take a chill pill (in form of chocolate) at what that will do to my home's cleanliness. So far we've already had three.
Naps. At least every other day. Myself included.
Videogames, Wii Sing and Just Dance
Buy some peppermint ice cream that I was too cheap too. (its seasonal people!)
Thats it for now. Send over your ideas, I gonna need them.
Thanks Tina for getting a picture of Baylie as an angel for her 3 year old preschool class. I stole this picture off your blog.
Fortunately the week after Christmas Jason is home so we are good til then.
