We have been trying to keep it slow and catch up on things that need doing, as last week was hell on wheels, and next week looks to be just as busy.
I usually hate to run around so much, but it seems like scheduling the crap out of the week seems to keep me from loosing my mind in the dreary, cold winter.
So I make myself crazy and run run run.
Then when we have some stay at home for a few days in your pj's, well that's just fine by me!
We checked out an Opera for kids on Sunday.
It was pretty good. We have seen many theatre productions,
but this was the first in which they did everything in front of the kids, make up, set changes, just so they could see everything involved.
I have been trying very hard not to let the season get to me this year, I seem to suffer from SAD. So, I have been buying plants to keep me seeing green, vibrant things. We decided to do some indoor gardening to help rejuvinate us and the plants.
It was a good smell, that damp soil.
Everybody was excited to play in the dirt.
We also decided to paint some pots,
in which to plant some Hyacinth's in to help liven things up even more, and that smell!
We can't wait!
We worked on our Valentine's day cards.
It's been a nice relaxed week, so far.
The wii has brought us much entertainment. our current faves are: Lego star wars, Punch out, Boom Blox. Mario Cart, and Fishing Master.
Isn't K ridiculously cute in his pink striped footies? As you may have guessed they were bought for M, but she found the footies intolerable. K fell in love and snatched them up. He even named them. They are not Pj's or footies, nope, those right there are his beloved Oompays!
We have a concert of Christmas songs to go to at Yale tomorrow.
Yep, Christmas songs!
It was cancelled during the holidays due to a storm and was rescheduled. It will be fun to hear some merry tunes one more time.
Christmas seems so long ago already.
