Doing a Happy Carpool Dance

October 16, 2008 at 9:23 am (Ladybug, Nothing)

We’ve hooked up with another family that lives nearby to carpool to school. Woohoo!  Yes, I’m happier that we’re now a little greener.  But actually, I just love the free time in the morning.  So does Ladybug.  Right now she’s dancing to Sesame Street.  We never get to watch Sesame Street.  We’ve danced, read countless books, enjoyed a hot cup of tea together, gotten dressed in a leisurely fashion, and done two loads of laundry.  All in the hour we save by not driving Sunshine to school in the morning.  It’s the little things.

So I’m getting ready to go away this weekend.  Without my husband.  Without my children.  I am amazed at the sheer amount of things I need to do in order for the weekend to proceed smoothly for my husband.  If he had it his way all outfits would be laid out in the order in which they should be worn, down to the shoes and hair bows.  Breakfasts, lunches, and dinners would be cooked and neatly portioned into labeled tupperware containers.  Frankly, I’m not nearly so organized.  I feel like I’ll be lucky just to get the girls’ clothes washed.  (So Sunshine has a clean soccer uniform on Saturday morning, of course.)   

Seriously though, I think they’re going to have a blast.  The chryalids are nearly ready to hatch. The weather is beautiful.  There are passes to the zoo.  The only thing that would make the weekend better is a refrigerator full of junk food.  I’ll work on that on Friday.  
I’m going to miss them so much.

It’s Raining, It’s Pouring…

It’s a gray, dreary, chilly day in the ATL.  Perfect weather for a hearty lamb stew and some great cuddle time on the sofa with the girls.  We’re screening The Bee Movie today.  After more than 30 days with no rain I forgot how nice it is to curl up during a thunderstorm.  The puppy girl is anxious though and is pacing everywhere.  All in all, it’s been a perfect day so far.
