You guys, it's Thursday. I've hit that point in the week where I don't care much for anything except for how fast tomorrow will come and when do I get to put my kids to bed? In spite of my own personal resignations I've managed to stay pretty on top of things this week. Exercised every day? Check. Edible meals on the table? No extraneous spending? Double check. Children fed and cared for? Check Check. Daily shower before noon? Miracle check. Nap schedule enforced? Check. Work completed? Check. Measurable time spent NOT wearing sweatpants. When has this happened in the last 12 months, check.
I mean really, it looks like I have things under control, and I suppose I do friends. But man, sometimes control can turn into a snoozefest, especially when the weather has been all menopausal lately. Case in point, I took the boys out for a quick yog on Monday, thinking the snow wasn't supposed to hit until later. I was mistaken and was soon penitent for my colossal misjudgment as I sprinted 2 miles home in the sideways blowing precipitation. We finally made it home and after a few minutes passed in which I contemplated throwing up, because guys, sprinting 2 miles at panic-speed is a lot different than casually jog/walking them let me tell you what, my eyes un-crossed and I took a hot shower to warm up. The children? They were fine. Fortunately I had remembered to dress them warmly, pad them with blankets, and even one for the top. They were tented in. I even clothes pinned the top one on because I am not so serious about the yogging to have invested in a rain cover or anything smart like that. Why am I even telling you this story? Oh yes, to demonstrate how desperate we can get for a change of scenery. Enough so that we're willing to play chicken with some storm clouds. Obviously that was one gamble that did not pay off for me. Neither did that one time I hit the garage with my mom's van when I totes thought I had it cleared. Nope. No dice. A career in Vegas likely will likely remain out of reach.
Thankfully, the sun came out today for a bit. The park was nice. The boys took naps. I put off my work until later and watched "Castle"on the DVR, then decided to write out this bit of nothing as well. Oh, and then I took some pictures of myself on photobooth because what else is there to do?
