Are we there yet?

Today is Tuesday, December 23rd, and I find myself wishing the school system had NOT given the lovely Catholic youngsters so many days off before Christmas. Here’s why: THEY ARE BORED. And basically, those words translate into, “Hey! Let’s see how much we can bug Mom & Dad to entertain us while we’re sitting around waiting for Santa Claus to leave us some new stuff to play with!”

God love ’em.

Meanwhile, I’m thinking very seriously about dumping them both in the backyard, snow suits and all. I’ll even take pictures! From the window! *hehe* Because then it would be Mom & Dad’s turn to be entertained, thus turning the tables right back where they should be.

Check out this game of Cat’s Snow Survival, fun at its finest:

Tag – You’re It

Thank God Almighty that Catholic Hubs will be home tomorrow night, as I’ve been doing the Solo-Parent-of-Two-Children thing all week and in need of a serious break. How serious? Well let me tell you, being a single parent drives this person to crazy stunts like the following:

  • Sleeping in several minutes late without showering before shuttling kids to school.
  • Holding off on applying makeup until after the kids have finished eating breakfast.
  • Wearing puffy white workout socks with black boots under a certain long black down-filled winter coat between drives to school like a complete Mom Dork.
  • Purchasing multiple lottery tickets in hopes of winning millions of dollars, but then only winning 3 measly bucks out of the deal, money that is subsequently applied to the next lottery ticket purchase.
  • Pizza Hut take-out. Also used as leftovers the next day.

Dang. Does this make me a ‘Co-Dependent’ after all? *pfft!*
