January Thaw

For the first time in what seems like MONTHS we had a weekend in which a) almost nothing was scheduled for me personally and b) the weather was pleasant. This delicious combination was further sweetened by Hubs leaving the house at 5:30 am yesterday, both kids in tow, to go ice fishing. Yes, people, I had the house to myself yesterday. I immediately took advantage of this by leaving it to go for a 2 1/2 hour run. I also did some concentrate-y worky stuff, and some lazing about on the floor reading, and some sneaking-of-art-projects-out-of-the-house-into-the-garbage. And then when Hubs came home--without the kids, who were doing a sleepover at their cousin's house--we went out to eat, where we enjoyed being able to talk without having to discuss whose turn it was to use the blue crayon, and came back and watched Julie & Julia, and got halfway through before Silas called from my SIL's house to say, "Helen has a fever. Also, she threw up. A LOT." Sigh. Overall, though, Sunday was a nearly perfect day, and even the barfy end to it had the upside that almost none of the barf in question ended up in my house (my turn next time, SIL! I owe you one!)

Next weekend: looking forward to finishing the movie.

I love the sneaking-of-art-projects-into-the-garbage comment. You moms are so busted.

Oh, yeah. I learned long ago that sorting through artwork was just not an activity that was enhanced by involving the artwork creator.
