In a normal March, Brad and I would have already hit a beach someplace. Mexico, Jamaica, Bahamas.
I would have gotten a break from the 6 month long/near constant winter here in fabulous Minnesota!
But alas~ this year that is not the case.
I'm struggling, kids. I'm not gonna lie to you. The days are longer. Daylight savings time has ended (Praise God!) but we still have at least a foot of snow and it's very, very cold.
So...bring on the unbearable ennui!
en·nui[ahn-wee, ahn-wee; French ahn-nwee]
a feeling of utter weariness and discontent resulting from satiety or lack of interest; boredom:
So...that's where I've been. I've had ideas for posts. Cake pictures I've wanted to share. A pile of books I want to read. And yet..when I'm not working, I find myself watching episodes of "Chopped"and other things I'm not interested in! I almost can't stop myself!
What I need: Fresh air! Sun! Warmth! I'm pasty and broken!
Just kidding about the last part.
Flowers from Brad for our six year anniversary on March 2nd. (We've been married five, together for six.)
Now THAT is happy!
I did see my best friend for lunch and pie yesterday. That was also fun. She is hilarious. I wish everyone had someone like her in their corner. She's very sweet, thoughtful and loyal. And when I am not my best self, she gently points out "Well..maybe that wasn't the BEST way to go about it." Necessary. Everyone needs that.
I also saw my nephews Emerson and Andrew for lunch last Friday. They both had the day off of school. Andrew was throwing out hilarious comments left and right and sounded mature. We drove by his school where he's in fifth grade and he said "Well, there's the school that's failing me!" ??? I tried to ask more about it, but he and Emerson heard a song on the radio that they had to sing along with. After lunch, they wanted to hit the McDonald's playland. Once we found it (I'm not super clear where all McD's playlands are in their neighborhood) Andrew said 'Yeah, this will be fine but I really like the older ones. This is too modern."
And later...as we're leaving McDonald's and getting (I think) Shamrock Shakes around 5:30PM- Andrew loudly says "yeah, I think the Catholics just take themselves too seriously!" and proceeds to order two double cheeseburgers while everyone else is getting fish fillets. LOL. Hilarious. He's been "forced by my grandma" to go to classes for a catholic communion. He is so. funny.
I will now be heading back to work!
Have a beautiful day!
