I have been managing to stay on top of the house work and meals, as well as little chores that have been piling up. Except the laundry, which somehow multiplied despite my best efforts. Today I have at least 6 loads waiting for me in the laundry room. *sigh*
In the process of keeping up and being so awesome, I ended up getting a cold. Yesterday I felt dreadful all day and couldn’t keep my eyes open by 2pm. J took the girls out for a couple of hours while I napped. He even got them an early dinner so all I did later was make some grilled cheese sandwiches. Today I feel slightly more human but now I have a cough and so do both kids. Ugh.
The good news is that there’s snow. Yes! Snow! A good foot or two of it. The kids were so excited so I took them tobogganning yesterday (yes, even though I felt horrible) and they are now looking outside practically drooling at the new snow again. They want to go skating today which is great except the outdoor rinks that L can use a chair on are covered in snow and I would have to shovel off before they skate. The other rink will be clear but we can’t bring a chair so I’ll have to hang onto L. And at the moment it is blistering cold and windy so maybe if we wait a while someone else will clear the ice. 🙂
