Tell me again why the weekend is fun?

10 Feb

I used to look forward to the weekend as more than just a break from work. I really did at one time. Now, I’m just happy to sit on my ass and eat torilla chips while the kids chased each other around the basement.

So it was yet another unexciting day in the life of someone’s mother. I managed to bat my eyelids and get some money out of my father (never too old to do that) so I went to the grocery store and grabbed a few things. Blood oranges are out (woot!) but they aren’t cheap. (sad)

Grabbed the girls “Where the Wild Things Are” since I’d always wanted to get it, and I LOVE that Vivian is into actual storybooks now. I remember loving books like this and this, and new loves like this and this make me want to buy her even more.

Went and found, after much searching, a heart shaped cake pan for a cake for my baby. I had no idea what to get, so this is a better way. I’ll also make him whatever cookies he wants tomorrow. I have a feeling he thinks I’m just being cheap. Which sucks, since the fun of Valentine’s day is doing sweet things. Or so I thought.

I’m just glad I went by myself, since it seemed to be pissy kids day at the mall. Every single kid I saw was screaming, screeching or whining. I can get that at home.

Took the kids for a walk since it was only -16 out. Man, how happy were they to get out after about a week and a half stuck indoors. Poor little dudes. Ros of course is the cutest. She overheard me saying ‘Yup” to Viv, and kept saying it. Yup. Yup.

Yup.

Ros is starting to talk more, Viv is starting to mouth off, and I’m forgetting stuff more than usual.

Life moves on.

    Oh, that pic somehow reminded me of being at the beach – except – it’s, uh, snow. Yeesh.

    If you ever find any kids books by Berkeley Breathed, get them. The kids will love ’em, and so will you.

    The Edwurd Fudwupper book is especially good. 😎

    LOL @ Ros’s “Yup yup yup”

    Reminds me of those hilarious aliens on Sesame Street. (“YUP… YUP… YUP YUP YUP UH HUH UH HUH!”
