Yep, we were off school for two and a half weeks and I only updated twice. Yay me.
Life intervened. Things like sleeping late took precedent.
Oh wait. There was no sleeping late at my house unless you were over the age of 14.
Hmm. Let me clarify. There was no sleeping late unless you were over age 14 and less than 42. Which, if you do the math, leaves me out. Lovely.
But, things like staying in jammies all morning, reading books while snuggled on the couch, playing with toys to our hearts content, and eating dinner later than usual were more important than updating the blog.
side note: I still haven’t even done our Christmas letter. I am shooting for Valentine’s Day/Chinese New Year this year.
Let me take a moment to clarify that I took part in all the above activities except playing with toys. I drew the line at that event.
Christmas came, we saw, we conquered.
Hmm. Thinking back to Christmas Eve.
We went to Mass….and all the kids mostly behaved. Ahem.
My laptop decided get sick for 36 hours and about killed me.
Resorted to the crackberry to survive…gasp.
Stayed up late to build a “bleeping” Barbie house on Christmas Eve. Ugh. It was midnight until all was built and played with by those older than 6.
Christmas brought new kitchen appliances for a girl, a new guitar for a boy, new Barbies and Littlest Pet Shop pieces for short people, and………….marshmallow guns for all!
The New Year was upon us rather quickly. Oh, by the way, we chose to celebrate on Irish time so we could do it at 8pm. Hey, no excuses here. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
Dave and Katie departed for Pennsylvania shortly after the year began to visit his parents. So, while the cat was away, the mice played. We had Mickey D’s for breakfast, junk food for lunch, pizza for dinner, and stayed in our jammies all day.
Well, only once. But it was fun!
Now we’re back into the school groove again, complete with frigid temperatures and snow in the forecast.
Need I remind you that we live in Georgia?
