I just bought a giant box of 36 organic toaster pastries. This morning Ethan opened a pack, (two pastries) ate one and decided they were gross. Jonah spied the uneaten toaster pastry, took one bite and said he didn't like it. So now I have 34 organic toaster pastries that my kids won't eat. Maybe next time I can buy a small box from the grocery store first and try out a new food item before committing to a giant box from Costco.
I think I have SAD or "Seasonal Affective Disorder." When it's cold, dark and rainy, all I want to do is stay in bed all day. Of course I don't stay in bed all day, but it seems like it would be really nice and cozy. During the day, I don't really want to leave the house, even if we are out of milk and I have to eat my Raisin Bran dry. All I can bring myself to do is snuggle under a blanket, read books and doze off every 45 minutes or so.
If this is SAD, then I have to say, I don't really mind it all that much. In fact, I almost look forward to the rainy, cold days just so I have an excuse to curl up with a book and nap all day. However, I suppose it would be nice to see the sun eventually.
Question: Can I have S.A.D. with out actually being "sad"?
This is the last week of school. To be honest, I'm in a bit of denial. I've sort of been ignoring those e-mails about donating items and money for the teacher gift and end-of-year class parties. I haven't signed anyone up for basketball, swimming or bug camp. I have even given up on creating summer bingo, which I could never get to work just right anyway.
Eventually I'm going to sign up for My Reward Board and get the kids to hopefully help around the house a bit (more reading time for me!) and work on some summer goals. I've got a few ideas for crafts that we might work on, and of course we will visit the library once a week.
Robert started riding his bike to work this week and I think I'll start walking to the library and store a bit more often. We live 1 mile from a library/shopping center that has everything I could possibly need. I might get one of those little carts to drag home groceries in. Of course I'll need to wait for the weather to warm up a bit and for the rain to stop.
To be honest, seeing the number "4" up there next to "regular unleaded" makes me sick. And it will probably be a "5" before too long.
