It's Freaking Cold
Mini apparently had a nightmare this morning. He woke up screeching for his daddy, and in his attempt to give me heart failure and beat me to a pulp - two birds with one stone, you know - he clobbered me with a 5 AM headbut right to the face.
It took me several minutes to calm him down, and explain that daddy isn't "gone", he's gone to work. Oy, what a morning. I got up with him after that, and we came into the den. I turned Sesame Street on for him and found couldn't get the coffee on fast enough.
Oldest, who mystifies me by wearing sweat pants in the summer, and who won't put on a damn pair of gloves or a tobogan in the winter to save himself, wanted to stand in the dining room with the front door wide open to the 20 degree chill and wait for the bus that way. Uh, hell no. You're not freezing me and Mini to death! Go layer up, kid. He pouted around about it, but it appears the gods are merciful - the school bus came and took him away to the Land of Angst for a few hours.
In another twenty minutes or so, I should be able to call hubby and let Mini talk to him a minute. He's still toddling around looking for his daddy. In the meantime, I'm going to dig out my demons and get them ready. Yep. I'm finishing the draft today by adding those two scenes I mentioned adding days ago. Slackass... Yeah, that's me. I went to bed telling myself I'd just bite the bullet and finish it. If it's too short, I'll sub it elsewhere. I've got too much going on here to worry about it right now.
This morning, first thing online, I went to the Advent Calendar. For those who might Neo or otherwise care, there was 350 Neopoints, a pop-up Braintree card, and a mini decorated Braintree. Cute! That's the Braintree in my pic today. After seeing the Halloween Lupe in the pic next to him, I'm starting to think I might need one. *lol* ^_^
By the way, Neopets.com owns all the rights and indicia, the characters and their names and the rights to those names, and the artwork, and all that blah, blah, blah for today's post picture. Gotta write that. The NeoTeam get their Neo-Nickers in a twist if you don't post that stuff when using their pics offsite. Oink.
