I think this winter has done me in. I woke up Sunday in a foul, foul mood and never came out of it. Even after sending everyone upstairs and getting on the treadmill (which usually turns a woke up on the wrong side of the bed day around), I still didn’t want to talk to anyone. So of course, that was when everyone wanted all of the attention.
Anyway, Monday wasn’t much better. It’s been below freezing here since Saturday, the heater is cranked up, and I just don’t want to get out of bed.
The littlest one has all but given up naps. Plus, he’s turning three THIS MONTH. I can’t say I’m thrilled about either of those things, if I’m being honest.
So. What can I do except throw a pity party and invite everyone over for cake? I guess I can try to look for some good things that are happening.
One good thing about freezing temperatures are that I usually take a shower in the morning and my hair freezes on the way to and from school drop off. It’s obnoxious and uncomfortable. BUT, it also eliminates almost all of the frizz that normally plagues me. So even though I desperately need a trim, my hair doesn’t look half bad. Until I pull it back and get on the treadmill anyway.
What else? Well, according to Weather Whiskers, it IS supposed to warm up this week. (Please join me in crossing fingers that there’s no snow Wednesday. Please.)
Though my sweet boy is getting older without my permission, he’s also been really funny lately. He’s found his personality and his imagination, and it’s quite entertaining. One of the things that cracked me up this week was when he’d come into the room and say “Oh uh, hiya, mama!”
Angela shared this video Tuesday morning, and I freakin’ teared up. I’m not even kidding. I love Jimmy Fallon and the Roots SO SO SO MUCH, and then add in one of the winter anthems in our house? That includes a whole lotta BELTING OUT? AWESOME. I watched it twice. At least. I’ll probably watch it again tomorrow morning. Or when the girls get home from school. Or both.
We’ve eaten a lot of cake lately, but we’ve also been baking. Hubs was kind enough to make gluten free pastries for us, and then I made little donut muffins the next day. Yeah, some cinnamon and sugar will cheer anybody up. Am I right?
And when they were done, I had a food photography protégé. (I will be sharing the recipe. Oh yes, I will.)
Last but not least, my dry winter skin is so, so happy to be pampered by real French soap again.
How is your winter going? Have any good winter news to share? (Like, that’s it’s almost over??)
