Remember back in the olden days when I blogged a lot and did quick takes almost every week? My brain gets in my way. It does. Stupid brain. Anyway, I love how Jenna has started doing the same categories every week, presumably, since everyone is just like me, because her brain gets in her way, too. So maybe Imma start doing that. I could even make sweet (and by sweet of course I mean lame because creative is what I am not.) graphics for each category, you know? I'm feelin' it y'all. Feelin' it.
Now if my brain would just shut up for long enough that I could come up with my categories....
Oh! Like "Weekly Homeschool" maybe? Or something like that? Category name ideas for ANY section totally welcome. Anyway, things outside of regular curriculum that we've done or do. That's fun I think.
This week, if I had a sweet graphic and a name for this category, I'd talk about "What do you hear?" which is a game we play in the car with the music on. I ask "what instruments do you hear in this song?" and Paul and Cecilia (Katy and Lizzy are only allowed to play if the small ones are stumped because obviously) and they holler out "trumpet! violin! piano!" And this is with regular pop music too, not just
3)On the Table
(Hey, I actually thought of one in advance. This is a list of what we've already had for dinner, not what we're going to have in the future. I feel more...honest this way. I mean, you know what I mean.)
Friday- Vanilla dutch baby puffed pancakes ("funny pancakes" for short)
Saturday- Fish & chips + cheesy biscuits (wow, so diet. very vegetable)
Sunday- Chinese food takeout (hey, it was still CHRISTMAS)
Monday- Eggplant pomodoro pasta
Tuesday- Slow cooker pork carnitas
Wednesday-Lentil, bean and vegetable soup
Thursday- homemade pizza (this is actually really easy and sounds fancy but is NOT. Would you be interested in the recipe for this? We sort of made it up.)
4) A picture you haven't seen
Oh yeah, these two were super into this photoshoot....
Paul and Cecilia, on Christmas Adam, waiting for the Fed Ex guy to come so they could give him his Christmas cookies. I wish I could act out what C. did when he arrived for your entertainment and enjoyment. You would laugh a thousand laughs alongside me.
5) Around the House
Since we've always got some kind of project or renovation going on, I feel like this will work.
The. Laundry. Room.
Gosh it just takes so long to do even simple things when you make a concerted effort not to create misery for the other members of your family. Know what I mean? Like, I actually stop to eat and help people do stuff instead of working from sun up 'til sundown, shooing people away if they even dare speak to me. Dang it.
Insta today. It looks way better in this photo than in real life because in real life primer looks like a small toddler used a hefty container of white out to splatter your walls. Weeeeeeeeee!
Poco a poco.....
6) Sweet Dealz
Zulily has cute dresses right now. Easter mebbe? I'm gonna have my girls pick some out now so I don't forget. I mean! Don't feel RUSHED. Because, like, I would never actually uh, you know, forget to shop for them. No. Never.
Kohl's is double cashback (6%!) through Ebates right now AND you can earn Kohl's cash AND you can get 20% off baby, toddler, and maternity stuff with code HeyBaby20 AND get free shipping on orders over $50 with code JanShip50. So. Very yes. Much shop.
Tommy: Hey, when we turn the garage into a pub (?!?!?) we're going to call it The Red Merle.
Mary (arguing with herself in the mirror): I'm a baby. No I'm a baby. No I am a baby. Nooooooo I'M A BABY!
Cecilia to Paul, re: Mass: .....and then everyone is saying all the prayers so fast and I can't even keep up and all of sudden it's like "According to the flesh...."
Me: I'm supposed to get my thinning, postpartum, shrimpy mop of hair cut in the morning and have no idea what to do with a mop of hair as shrimpy as this. HELP!!! (this one is for all of you because really, wow. It's so ugly right now.)
How was that? Good enough? Good enough! Thanks for hanging out. Don't forget to go see Kelly for all the other taking of the quicks.
