Having little kids and being in the house around the clock, though, is a different story. Being inside this long without a trip in the car can cause strange things to happen.
I gave up on getting dressed on day 2. This is an outfit that Emmy would call an "I'm a mom now and I gave up," outfit.
People start picking strange places to nap.
Oh gotcha! She was pretending.
(I knew but acted surprised)
I knit a lot. This isn't strange but being able to finish things without interruption is. At night we sit by the fire and talk. I knit.
Hi I'm Mary but you can call me Ma Ingalls.
Yesterday Sean and I took turns walking to 7-11 for entertainment. He went first to make sure it was safe. Ha! That just sounds so wrong doesn't it? I sent my man out on the ice with a broken foot to make sure I wouldn't fall. We live less than a mile from 7-11 and we figured it would be open and it was. I bought some candy and chips for the kids and I managed to fit four different cereal bowls, (the plastic kind filled with cereal with a 'fill line' inside for your milk) in my coat pockets. It was 20 degrees during our outings. At times it felt colder than that though. Not that I know what colder than that really feels like.
Since I was successful at walking on ice and dodging the cars brave enough to be there, I decided to get crazy for dinner. I warmed up at home for a few hours then bundled back up. I set out at about 4 walking the other direction and went to McDonalds carrying a cooler to keep the goodies warm on the trek back. Then since that trip was successful I also went across the street to Sonic to get two Route 44 drinks. I had a drink carrier in one hand and the cooler in the other. I was pushing the limits. I wish I'd taken a picture. I will never forget my voyage into the wild to get food for my family. I felt positively invincible. Sean cried he laughed so hard when I walked in the door back at home.
Tomorrow I'll show you what I've been making for Valentines Day treats. I'm proud of them and really like what I made, mainly because I got to use glitter.
Y'all have a happy day.
