- We took C to an Ice Cream Social for incoming Kindergarten students. He loved the elementary school and asked "Do I really get to go to school here?" J and I were slightly freaked out. It finally hit home that he'll be going to school soon.
- We got signed up for spring soccer and C proclaimed that--this year--he will not spend all of his time playing in the dirt and picking flowers. He's going to "help my team win the game." We'll see.
- I made a mental note to buy new running shoes for C and another one to dig out the lawn chair and blankets for me. Spring soccer = lots of running (or flower picking) for the kids, but lots of sitting in the cold for the parents.
- I went shopping on Saturday and discovered that the only things I really liked were purses and necklaces. What I really needed to find were shirts and shoes. Now what?
- I started painting the living room/dining room/kitchen/halls last night and I'm a bit worried that the color is too dark. I was hoping that seeing it in the daylight would help me to make up my mind, but it's so cloudy today that I still have no idea what it really looks like.
- I gave up sweets for Lent and I'm currently feeling about 24% homicidal. It's early yet.
- C has a cold (AGAIN) and is beyond crabby.
- I am officially on spring break this week, though in reality I have to prep the second half of the semester, compute midterm grades, and return countless emails.
- Reading for fun
- Hardy house plants
- Taking a nap on a rainy Sunday afternoon (Oh, yes I did!)
- Being cozy at home when it's cold and rainy outside
- My sweet, sick, crazy, crabby boy
A container with wheels + a boy = Impending doom.
P.S. C just gave me a ticket for being a "mean" mom and not letting him go to school on Mondays and Wednesdays anymore (long story). It will cost me "one penny, eight quarters, and one dollar" to pay for it. Good times!
P.P.S. He just told me that "one penny, eight quarters, and one dollar" means I owe him "three dollars and one cent." Holy cow! Is it just me or is this five-year-old a counting prodigy?
