I Made It Through

Just checking in to let you know that I have indeed (almost) made it through February school vacation. The kids are now taking out the trash and recycling to the curb. They still have to pick-out their clothes for the week and try to find their backpacks, then it is off to dream land. Ahhhhh.....

This week the family was supposed to be sitting in sunny, WARM Florida with my parents at their beach side timeshare. A few months ago we were uninvited and friends that my parents see twice a year were invited. I guess they are more fun than hubby and myself. Excuse me if I sound bitter, but my mother's repeated phone calls from the beach didn't help.

Over the week we have managed to keep ourselves busy. A trip to the food pantry to drop-off the food Girlie's Brownie troop collected. A just so-so movie with smuggled-in popcorn and Sigg bottles filled with water. OK, OK....So I also smuggled in a big bag of Reeses Pieces. (Don't tell the kids)

A trip to the local McDonald's with some friends before the building is bulldozed in the next few weeks. (Don't judge me. It's February in Connecticut...we were cold and bored) Two birthday parties at indoor gyms. A very bad library puppet show.

Lots of backyard sledding. Two trips to the food store. Cross country skiing. (twice!) Too many bad DVRed movies.

Here's to two months until April school vacation!

PS Spell check is back!!! I can spell again!

Sorry you didn't get to spend time on the beach! But it sounds like you got a lot done and ended up enjoying yourselves anyway.
