It’s COLD out there today! Low 20s and windy. I’m sure my northern friends would be happy to warm up to that, but for us Virginians, that’s cold.
Today I had one absolutely must do on my to do list: stay at home and wait for our shipment of West Coast beer. (Yes, I do have my priorities straight LOL). I also needed to do some laundry, file, and pack for our weekend trip to Texas (aka someplace warmer than here where the Inauguration will not be taking place). To make the day go faster, I invited one of Shoo’s friends over to play. Those of you with kids know that you can’t leave two not quite and just barely three year olds alone for more than a moment at a time or you’ll find the cat shaven and the book case on fire. Ok, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but with a house that also has a 7 year old, there are plenty of not age appropriate things for them to get into.
So, my day went something like this (remember, I live in a colonial style two story with the office and the laundry room in the basement). Run to the basement, throw in a load of laundry, run to the main level, check on the kids, run back to the basement and grab the suitcase. On the way up to the 2nd level, check on the kids. Run upstairs, set out suitcase, run back downstairs, check on kids, run to basement, file a few pieces of paper, check laundry, run to the main level, check kids…. Keep doing this until three loads of laundry are done, many papers are filed, and suitcase is packed. Since that wasn’t enough of a workout, I did abs and then ran three hill interval miles on the treadmill after Beer Geek got home.
And the beer didn’t actually get delivered until after we picked up Jones from school, so we really didn’t have to spend the whole day at home, sigh.
