I've put off painting a day. I've come down sick with something, and now it's raining cats and dogs. I'm surprised I have a net connection at all in this weather, so I really shouldn't complain. To keep in good spirits, I browsed around for festive pictures. Isn't Candy Jack here a gem? He's an AOL pic. *rofl*
Last night I hung out with the guys for a while, just watching tv and making Oldest leave Mini alone with the new toys. Erm, rather old toys. The ones I found in the closet... remember I wrote about those? The ones I argued with oldest about giving to Mini? I came in twice yesterday to find the new/old toys on the dining table out of Mini's reach. I asked why they were up there, and Oldest loudly proclaimed, "I don't want Mini to break them!"
Okay, we are talking about a 15 year old getting fussy over baby toys. Cheap ones at that. An old wind up musical "tv" and a bear shaped toy clock. Nothing fancy. Granted they were his, but as far as that goes he didn't even know we had them anymore until a few days ago. As far as he was concerned, I'd chucked them in the garbage when he outgrew them. He's never even asked for them over the years. I told him to leave the toys--and Mini--alone. *shakes head*
Tomorrow if I'm feeling better I plan to get as much done as possible. I don't want to have to do a scrap of housework Friday--hubby and I are making it an anniversary weekend. I'm going to attend the RD chat, and that's about the only finger I plan to lift all that day. Then on Saturday we're going shopping--yay, Victoria's Secret!!--and going out to eat without the kids. Woot! Proof that I am indeed a woman, and not just a mom. Ha ha!
