Anyway, I'm making them for V-day for Husband. The Crazies freaked out when I mentioned that, so they're getting hotdogs and mac & cheese. Technically, since Matt hates mac & cheese ever since an unfortunate stomach virus incident, he'll be having a cheese sandwich and hotdog.
Great...I've become that mother that makes 5,000 meals to satisfy everyone.
Life can't get much better.
Also, remember to read the recipe all the way through! I forgot the first time and neglected to see the "refrigerate for an hour" part and dinner was a TAD late that night!
Speaking of Valentine's Day, we're quite excited around Casa de Crazies. Valentine's Day has become quite the celebration at school and even though I openly made fun of my friends for handing out gobs of candy, I'm glad the Crazies are excited.
That's not to say that I'm allowing all of the candy though. I've offered $1 for every two pieces of candy they give me. What can I say? Money talks...
In addition to our special meals, the Crazies will receive one gigantic card each and a sandwich cut out like a heart (to which Matt replied, "UGH! THAT'S GOING TO TAKE YOU FOREVER!!!).
That kid has no faith.
We got some things for Husband, picked out cards, and will commence wrapping shortly. They are very adamant about their choices this year and it's amazing to see how different they are. They amaze me every single day.
Apparently they have a surprise in store for me too, but I have no idea what it is. All I know is that after telling Hailey that she shouldn't give me my surprise this morning, she threw herself on the ground sobbing. It was only after I called Daddy at work and let him talk her off the ledge that she calmed down and realized that she was a day ahead. Gotta get that girl a calendar.
I had a nice lunch with friends today. I brought the Crazies...and the iPad. Oh, the things I said I'd never do.
I'm trying the twitter thing again (@casadecrazies), but I just can't figure this shit out. When do I write things? When do I retweet? How can I quote a retweet if there aren't any stupid characters left? Who the hell wants to hear what I think anyway?? Why do I care about all of the useless shit on there anyway?
If you can answer those questions, please tweet me @casadecrazies.
LOL...I don't even know if "tweet" is a verb.
The birthday hell is coming to an end.
Husband put me on a spending moratorium for the remainder of the month...thank God it's a short month.
We booked our vacation rental for the summer. So happy!!! I'm literally keeping it up and looking at the pictures when I get depressed about our weather.
My NBH stuff is getting a little better. I saw the top of my desk for the first time in a while. I filed some shit. I'm going to have to put my Contain.er Store order on hold b/c of aforementioned spending moratorium, but I'll get there. I'll have all my useless shit in brightly colored boxes and bins if it's the last thing I do.
God, if that really is the last thing I do, I'll be the most boring person on the planet.
Or the most organized...whatever.
Speaking of, still need to get a will. It's only been four years...WTF!?!
Oh, I'm supposed to talk about baths in this post too. Well, I love baths. I love to sit in the warm water and put bubbles over my belly. There's no reason anyone (myself included) has to see that! I went shopping on Sunday thanks to Husband and his Christmas gift of North Face fleece filled with gift cards. I went to LUSH and purchased some new bubble bars...freaking awesome.
That's all. That's all the happenings. Starting to think of the Crazies' birthday already (probably because it'll be our first at this house and I have lots of great ideas for what I could accomplish in our new backyard). I'm also probably thinking about it b/c their birthday is the day before I theoretically head back to the classroom. We'll see!
Job interview on 2/26.
Do people even still wear suits to job interviews? It's not like I'm interviewing for a CEO position. I ask you...
Okay, so I haven't shared pictures of the Crazies for some time. Here you go...I warn you, they're getting old!!!
|Matt's Unbirthday Celebration at school...it was Pajama Day (in case you're assuming that I just send my children to school in their "foobies")|
|Birthday Party #2 of the month was at a nature center with a really cool owl.|
|And snakes and turtles and hissing cockroaches. It's no wonder the Crazies only had their picture taken with the owl, huh? Homie don't play dat!!|
