the kids go back to school tomorrow! i go back to work the day after that! i will finally be out of the house for longer than the occasional trip to the grocery store!
yeah, i know i could have gone outside or found some free activities for the kids and i to engage in, but for one thing it's ridiculously cold out, and for another, going anywhere would have required gas for the car, and we really are kind of super broke right now. plus, we had a ton of stuff we could (and did) do here. it's just that no matter how big your house is, it is never, ever big enough for kids home on winter break. note to self: use up all your float time this year on honeymooning or something. don't wait until december!
what did i do with my break? knit. watched too much tv. worked on some crafty projects. cleaned random things, like the front of the fridge. read a few books. overall, i'd say i feel pretty refreshed and ready to get the hell out of the house. i'm also ready for the kids to go back to school and for them to stop hanging around complaining about boredom. there was literally NO SUGGESTION i made this week that either of them took, and it wasn't too long ago that i started saying "boo fucking hoo" when one of them lamented the lack of stuff to do. tomorrow i plan on doing all that stuff i didn't do while they were home, washing some scrubs, and cutting up some veggies to pack in my lunches. we had our last fat farm vacation meal today (pizza!), tomorrow we go back on the wagon. i'm ready!
