Well Rich is home for a few days and the kids are off school AGAIN! Friday and tomorrow are national holidays so the school systems figure why bring the kiddos back on Monday might as well have a 5 day long weekend. Remind me to send a thank you note….I feel the need to express my gratitude....hee! Actually it is really nice for all those taking a vacation but not us; we’ve been homeward bound. Suffice to say we’ve had a lot of family fun time (thus my blog absence)!
Friday we took the kids to an indoor “snow” slide to rid them of some energy. They had a ball and repeatedly recanted "how embarrassing mommy is"….all because I screamed like a baby going down the slide. Not like I was the only one ….okay so I was.
Well Friday’s “snow day” was foreshadow of a COLD weekend. We seemed to skip right over fall and dive into winter. Evenings and early mornings have been in the lower 40’s. Now remember that is without any central heat and brick/cement homes. Brrrrrr…..it is cold! I am tempted to pull out the bean soup again….hee.
The family fun days and wintry evenings have left the kids tuckered out giving me and Rich time to cuddle by the heater (oh, I long for a fire place). Wish I could say it has just been Rich and me but another man has come into the picture….a Mr. Jack Bauer.
Two months ago that name did not even ring a bell but lately we’ve spent many intense, rather emotional nights together. The sad thing is after 2 months we just finished Season 1. It has been one long ‘24 hours’! How many more Seasons to go?
In show reality it is only 6 full days but to finish them all for me will feel like a lifetime. Oh if I could go back and do it over again I never would have begun this adventure with good ole Jack; it is just too much for me!
Since the cold weather has just begun and I turn into a couch potato huddled by a heater, dressed like an eskimo, with hot drink in hand, I think my nights with Jack will continue. What have I gotten myself into.....please send help!
