I’m so happy that my kids could spend time with Ash’s dad; they were sad that today will be his last but I explained to them that absence makes the heart grow fonder, etc. And then I did a little dance in private because guests are annoying. I wasn’t in the best mood yesterday and I was just tired of entertaining. I want my house back to normal.
Isaac woke up at 5:15 this morning asking for water; he NEVER does stuff like that. Consequently, I feel a little worse for wear this morning. Thank God for coffee.
Btw, I didn’t realize that today was officially Mardi Gras. One of these years – obviously not this one – I want to go to Pensacola for it. There, New Orleans, and Biloxi all had celebrations around the same time in the mid 1800s so it’s a legit party.
I really dislike Valentine’s day and I hate having to think about all the junk I have to gather for the kids. Dakota needs valentines and heart-shaped pb&j sandwiches. The boys have to fill out their valentines and I don’t know when that’s actually going to happen, amid soccer and homework and all that. Honestly, who has time for all this when you work? WHO?
Meanwhile, I think I might get Ash a toaster. I know it’s not romantic but ours really only toasts on one side and he’s always complaining about it. Did I tell you how his V-day and birthday gift for me already came? He forgot they might be in the same box as the camping stuff so I already got some sweet knee-high socks and wireless headphones.
Of course, all my devices are so old the headphones won’t connect through bluetooth. Well, until the end of this week when my new-ish ipod touch will be here. Mine’s a second gen and I ordered an apple pre-owned 5th gen. What a step up that will be! I’m pretty excited about it. That and my Bruce Dickinson shirt are en route (although, that one from the UK) so yay.
That said, I really do feel like shopping. But oh, how I really cannot. That money spent is the last I can really stand to let go of for a while. Time to buckle down and save for summer camp. UGH; summer is such a screw job when you have kids… and work full time.
I’m not going to do Tuesday chat today so I shall end with a photo of a place I’d much rather be right now.
