Although the past week's weather has been dismal (to say the least), we did have some highlights. For instance, three generations gathered 'round the television last Friday morning to ooh and ahh over the DVR'd royal nuptials. The most exciting part for Allie was the kiss and Zach was completely enamored by the airplanes that flew over the palace. Apparently the shocker of the morning was my proclamation that Kate and I are both the same age...Allie, in complete disbelief, declared that I definitely looked way older...to which I replied that Kate has yet to birth three children in less than five years.
The weekend brought even more rain and an intense case of cabin fever. So, Saturday found us shopping for summer clothes for the kids. I figure summer must come at some point and we are darn well going to be prepared...even if it means wearing flip-flops in 35-degree weather.
Apparently gloomy weather also does not bode well for my diet because Ben easily talked me into consuming one of the most
Oh, and remember how I'm trying to lose weight? Yeah...I obviously forgot about that too. I've also discovered this week that running 3.5-4 miles everyday will not result in any amount of weight loss when you consume that many calories in two days' time. Was it worth it? Eh...jury's still out on that one.
So, Sunday night found us enjoying the quiet of our own home with only one kid...who is still the easiest and happiest baby EVER. We had a relaxing night of laundry tackling and kids' closet purging. Then, I decided to check Facebook before going to bed to discover that the president would be giving an address to the nation in less than 5 minutes regarding the death of Osama Bin Laden. What?! So, on went the TV and then we ended up going to bed super late, but thanks to Facebook we were well-informed American citizens....which, I'm thinking is probably not something I want to brag about, but meh...I'm too lazy to delete and re-edit this whole paragraph...so, now you know.
I think that pretty much covers the excitement 'round these parts. Thankfully, I feel the coffee kickin' in (I'm not usually an early-afternoon coffee kinda-gal...so that should give you an indication regarding the level of pre-nap crankiness that was evolving) and I'm already itchin' for the kids to wake up so we can head outside. Happy Tuesday all!
