Random Thoughts #53

  • My husband took 3 days off from work last week to attempt to finish K Man's new bedroom. He's moving into M's old room, who moved into the old master bedroom. K is officially sleeping in there and 80 percent of his stuff has been moved. It looks pretty awesome. I hope he can keep it nice for at least a week. ::holds breath::

  • The predictions for a huge winter storm yesterday fell short here and I'm a little disappointed. Why? Because I'm weird. Because I was prepared and didn't need to go anywhere. Because I kind of like the idea of "thunder snow." (We were treated to a few bursts of thunder though.) Because I've spent most of my life in Minnesota and heard all these stories of the winter storms and mostly I've not experienced it.

  • I've found some great clearance deals in the last week or so and love it. $3 fabric storage totes for the kids' room? Fabulous! These have been great for the reorganizing of K's junk so far...and I got 2 bins each for M and K as well. I confess I have a storage bin/box addiction.

  • I finally got my "new" bread machine (bought it about a year ago!) to bake a decent loaf of bread. This is a wonderful development for me. I loved my old bread machine and used it all the time. ::moment of silence for the death of the beloved bread machine::

  • Laughter and smiles are much preferred to yelling and fighting and there has been much more laughter around here in the last week or so. I LOVE IT.
  • One of my biggest pet peeves are people who dish it out but can't take it. If you are condescending or insult me outright I will do the same to you. And generally I won't lose sleep over it.
  • ::deep breaths:: ::deep breaths::
  • I love making my kids laugh with silly things. Laughter is good.


I'm also writing at Midwest Parents this week. Come visit me? Pretty please?

And so you're sleeping now ... where? In the tub?

I have never heard of thunder snow. (Could be a superhero.) But back a million years ago, a Chicago weatherman talked about "thorms."

Love the laughter and smiles, and I hope they will stick around!
