I'm So Over It

Winter, that is.  Today I had to threaten Owen that if he didn't get outside I was going to make him clean toilets.  And that was after we spent 2 hours watching Good Luck Charlie on Netflix.

I think I'll pass

Let's chat about that for a second.  I've mentioned that I want to move into the set of that show before.  So I got the genius idea of getting a free month trial for steaming Netflix so I could actually watch the show and escape reality for a teensy bit.  And then, when all the kids and I sat down to watch it, I dropped the Blu ray player remote into my giant glass of pop that Truitt was trying to step in for some unknown reason, which then short circuited the remote.  I dried it out for hours, but no luck, so off to Radio Shack I went where I bought one that once I got home wasn't compatible, so I had to go back and get a different kind.  That is a lot of work to watch free movies for one month.   And so far my free month trial has turned into a $20 mistake.

Have to say though, the kids and I are thoroughly enjoying the show.  Until my eyes start burning and I realize it's only 2:40 and still 3+ hours until Chris gets home from work.  And what exactly are we going to do for the rest of the day?

The three littlest kidlets have decided that the answer to that question is jumping from the coffee table onto the couch and back again.  Do you see those insane sharp, metal corners?  So far, through 5 kids, no injuries but I am not sure how much longer it will stay that way.  They think it's hilarious, I think it's a giant medical deductible waiting to happen.

Stone and metal, totally baby safe.

Also, I have to threaten at least one of them a day to not take the tiles out of the table because I don't have any replacements and Mommy will be very upset if they break one.

Naturally, you would think taking them outside would be a good option.  Do you know how much work it takes to get the babies outside?  Too much.  And then they just fall over and get their faces covered in snow and cry.  Totally not worth it.

Multiply times 3

February and March better go by really fast because I am starting to go CRAZY in my house.

Happy Love Day.

PS:  I made the Nutella stuffed brown butter chocolate chip cookies, and am so, so sad to report that it was just way too much for me.  The brown butter just took things too sweet.  Maybe if I had used it in the recipe off the back of Nestle it would have been better, but this recipe called for mostly brown sugar.  I think I am still in shock from everything coursing through my veins.  Of course, if you like uber sweet, run, run, run to the kitchen and make them immediately.

PPS:  Chris loved them.  Figures.

PPPS:  I leave for winter camping in the Boundary Waters in less than 2 weeks.  Somehow, I am just not getting up the gumption to get excited about it.  Chris thinks I should be out every day pulling all three babies in the sled on my skis so I can "get a feel for what it's going to be like", since what they collectively weigh together is about what my sled will contain.  I just give him dirty looks and tell him that I'll be fine.

  1. The Boundary Waters will be a great adventure. You'll be free of the rat race if just for a few days. Take lots of pics.
