We had a great Christmas and New Years with friends again this year. As soon as I have gathered all the necessary photos, I'll blog about 'em.
The boys are FINALLY back at school (well, the oldest two) and all I want to do is crawl back in bed and hide from the laundry.
BUT, it's a new year and this year, I'm resolved to conquer my laundry dilemma--not let it conquer me. (If I throw away half of all the boys clothes, it would be physically impossible for them to dirty so many, right? RIGHT???)
In other news, my poor little Baby Gray is sick. He has a low fever and cough and is, therefore, not currently the most smiley baby in the world. It makes me realize how spoiled I am that normally he lets me set him down occasionally and plays happily. This week he only wants me to hold him in-between his 5 minute cat naps.
Gabe is also sick with a seriously stuffy nose (the kid refuses to blow his nose!) making him talk with nasal voice (think Ruprecht from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) "Mother? Not Mother? I wanna peanut buttah fandich, Mother!"
My coping mechanism to get me through the long cold winter is the same as it's always been. No, I don't hide in the kitchen with a bottle of liquor (I'd say "Jack" but that would imply I know what I'm talking about and I don't.) No, no, when the kids are sick and the laundry is piled up, I hide in the kitchen and drink...
And this year, I bought myself this handy little gadget to facilitate my addiction.
The Cocoa-Latte Hot Drink Maker from Back to Basics. I walked into the BX one day and they randomly had two of them. I took one and ran and didn't look back.
My (Japanese cow) milk consumption has increased ten fold as I'm sure my weight will if I stop nursing right now.
Well, my baby wont stop whimpering so I guess that's my cue to call Urgent Care.
...and then I'll make some hot chocolate.
