Anyone else not feeling like taking a cruise in Italy any time soon? Yowser! Those poor folks! :(
DH came home sick the other night, and I thought for sure we'd all be goners. Turns out he ate leftovers at work. I guess I forgot to send him to work the first day with a sign that said "Do not feed the pappi". The thing that makes me mad was that I had sent him with a nice lunch, too! Serves him right! (mean of me, right? lol)
Even the snow here is just wetness. All we have is a slushy mess. It's icky out there, and wasting my wood! I want it to be warm again! lol
On the bright side, DH is at home today so I put him to work. He's currently grooming the Corgis, and I had him vacuum earlier. Maybe I should con him into cleaning the bathroom next? ;)
I've seen this before: How Much Is A Homemaker Worth? It's a good reminder that it's not necessarily always in a family's best interest for Mom (or Dad instead) to work, too. By the time you add up an extra vehicle, gas, work clothes, faster prep foods, daycare, etc - depending on the job, especially if it's minimum wage, you can end up almost losing money.
No, really? Study: Junk food doesn’t cause obesity in middle schools It's called no more P.E. - where you really had to hoof it - and cutting back on recess. Let's not forget that the most exercise your average kid gets after school is walking into the house from the bus or up the stairs to their room. We've created a nation of LAZY kids. Bring back P.E. and home economics, and watch our kids start to get back on the right track.
...which reminds of all those brutal "line drills" during volleyball season. Do they even do that anymore? Man, our coach was EVIL. lol If you had a slowpoke who didn't make the time, he'd make you ALL keep running the drill until you made the time. By about the third of fourth time, you'd want to cry.
...he really was evil. I missed ONE serve. ONE. And he wouldn't let me serve the rest of the season. What was worse, he'd sub in my most hated school rival in my place. You know, the one with the Snow White hair.... yeah, I have issues. ;)
DH still carries my senior picture in his wallet. Isn't he adorable? lol ;)
I ran out of cat food. With the weather, I got stuck buying at Freddy's, so I'm just waiting until Magick's sick again. Sabbath is happy though, she got "junk food". lol I really wish I could get her off the dried kibble. I tried making a version of those Purina Busy Bones for the Corgis this weekend from scratch. I have the basis for it, but I'm still needing to tweak a few things. It wasn't as hard as I would have liked it to be, and I need to make them a bit smaller. The Grumpy Princess enjoyed them though. lol
