1. I cut my finger the other day while chopping basil. I have really sharp knives, which most of the time is a really good thing. This time….not so much. I cut off part of my fingernail, and part of the finger underneath it. It isn’t bad enough to go to the doctor, but bad enough to be painful and get in the way. Typing with an injured index finger is hard!!!
We are only days away from the end of February. I can not believe it is practically March. I swear I was just wrapping Christmas presents. Now we are planning a spring break trip, and summer vacation. And before you know it my little guy will be 9. I wish there was a way to just slow things down! Less than 2 months until my son’s birthday. I guess I need to start thinking about a birthday party.
The weekend is almost here, and I am super excited. We have friends coming this weekend! I am a little nervous though. They have 5 kids. I have 1. Coming up with meals for 10 people is a lot different than coming up with meals for 3. I think I have a plan, but who knows what is going to happen. The kids all get along really well, so it should be a loud, but fun weekend!
The weekend is almost here! This has been a busy week, and I am ready for 3 days of fun and relaxation. Tomorrow I am headed to my sons 3rd grade class to help with his Valentine’s Day party. It is fun to get to go to the classroom, to see all the kids he normally talks about. Just wish he wasn’t growing up so quickly. Last year I would still get hugs when I showed up, not so much anymore The sad thing is, I know it will only get worse. I am not ready for this yet!
I talked about this yesterday, but I am seriously so ready for winter to be over. I was out running errands yesterday, and it was a whopping 7 degrees. Shoveling snow yesterday morning it was -12. As I am typing this, there is a news report about how shivering burns calories. So maybe I should rethink wanting spring to arrive early thing. No, nevermind; I think I would rather workout than be cold.
I can’t believe how crazy the weather is this everywhere. Every time you turn on the TV or get on the computer you see updates about freezing cold temperatures, schools being cancelled, and crazy ice storms. I am feeling very fortunate for our Colorado winter. We have had pretty mild temperatures, with a few days of snow here in there. Sunday was 60 and sunny. Monday we got 6 inches of snow. Wednesday was back into the 50′s. Hard to really complain too much.
I can’t believe it is Thursday again already! Having a 3 day weekend really has thrown me off this week. One would think as a grown adult I could adjust to these things, but I can’t. I went grocery shopping for the week on a Wednesday…craziness I tell ya’!
Are you getting ready for the weekend? My weekend starts this evening. My parents are flying in, and will be here tonight. Tomorrow afternoon we are headed up to the mountains to spend the weekend up there. My brother and his wife are meeting us up there as well, and this is going to be our Christmas celebration. We will also get to go snowshoeing and hopefully some sledding, if the weather cooperates. Should be a relaxing, and great weekend.
It has been awhile since I have done Thursday Things. I am hoping that with the new year, I can get back into it. It is fun to share more than just recipes with you guys! We have a couple of trips planned this year, and this will be a great place to share them with you. Along with everything else that is going on, that doesn’t fit during the normal week. Hopefully you are excited to have these back as well!
I thought summers were supposed to be laid back and lazy. So far these first 3 weeks have been anything but! Working from home and having an 8 year old at home make it stressful. He wants to play and have fun; I mean he is 8 you can’t blame him for that! But, I have work to get done. So it is a tough balancing act. We are making lots of trips to the pool, and he has played with friends a few times, so hopefully at the end of the summer he will say it was a fun break.
