A Beautiful Sunny Afternoon.

The other day after picking up Ingrid from school, we stayed outside instead of going in and turning on the tv like we usually do.  It was gorgeous out!  Sunny and warm, and one of those days you know you have to take advantage of before it snows.  Thank god we did, it's been rainy and cold ever since.  We brought a blanket and snacks out and got some much needed fresh air.  We've all been sick for ages and ages...



And now here we sit inside again.  It's windy and cold and we have blocks strewn about, two stains soaking in the living room rug (forgot Otis can grab stuff off the coffee table now, dang it!)  I'm so needing a nap but Otis hasn't slept more than 20 minutes in about a week.  I'm trying to be patient with Ingrid as she jumps on the couch, runs back and forth from the kitchen to the living room, scaring the bejeezus out of the cats.  She has energy and I do not.  I just want to lay here on the couch and cut out felt circles.  Actually, really what I want to do is have someone, anyone, come over and take my kids out of the house for a few hours so I can curl up in my bed and just nap.  Any takers?  Anyone?  No?  Okay, then I guess it's time to go build block towers...

Gorgeous pics of the kids, and love the last part of the post.

I SERIOUSLY owe you big time - the pen pal gift arrived yesterday - so I would pop over in a heartbeat to take the kids out.

It's a shame we don't live a little closer....

Isn't it weird how just eating lunch outside can make sure a big difference in a day? Such a simple thing yet we rarely do it. I've tried to do it more now that it's nice and cool out.

Nothing wrong with wanting a few hours to yourself sometimes :) Wish we could sitter-swap with you!
