One of Those Days

It’s been up in the mid 40s today.  Yay!

But it’s been abysmally gray, rainy, and muddy.  Boo!

I finished painting my family room today.  Yay!

But I don’t like how it turned out.  Boo!

Quinn napped for about three hours today.  Yay!

He won’t go to sleep until late, late, late tonight.  Boo!

Crap.  That’s all I’ve got for today. 

I think I need a nap.  And maybe a night out somewhere.  Specifically, somewhere that isn’t the grocery store.  That just doesn’t count as a night out.  What would the townspeople think if I left my husband at home with the kids and went to the bar for some fruit juice?  I wonder if bars that serve a town of about 300 even have fruit juice.  I hear Friday it has a rockin’ family taco night, but we haven’t tried it yet.  We also still haven’t gone to the Supper Club a couple towns over to partake of their five star fried bologna (maybe they spell it “baloney”?).

I need summer.  And a life.  But really not so much the fried bologna.

I’ll post pictures of the family room once we have everything back where it belongs.

  1. I totally relate to you on pretty much every point on your list! Maybe in different ways, but I still relate! Yes, the bar would probably have some fruit juice, at least orange and cranberry and a few others that they use as mixers, but I still can’t quite picture you heading there. Off I head to gaze back out the window at the blizzard we’re having that is about sending me over the brink of sanity. I. hate. winter.

    Um yeah, I am trying to convince Boodle that going to the grocery store 2-nite with me and Lion-boy is a date(since King and Daddy are going on a daddy date 2-nite…)
    Its not really working for her or me…

    I head out to the grocery with a friend and actually kind of look forward to it now, so sad and yet true..
    It makes me feel kinda’ bad that you’re happy it was “up” in the 40’s today. The weather is one thing that isn’ so bad about living in LA (lower Alabama). It was 73 here today. I’ll shut up now before I get some cold mud thrown at me..

    Going to the grocery store alone used to feel like a mini-vacation, but now I do it all the time and I just think of it as wasted free time. I’ve been itching to get away from it all for a while now – the date last weekend was *awesome* but I need MORE! I think winter needs to be over now, for all our sanity.
    Can’t wait to see the finished family room!!


  5. I know what you are feeling. I think we all get a little “cabin fever” this time of year. As for me, the grocery store is never an option as a date. I HATE grocery shopping that much.
