- For work I secured my kids a weekly gig volunteering at a local llama farm
- It is cold. It snowed today. Last time I experienced snowy weather was January 21, 2007 when it snowed in Tucson my freshman year of college. Everyone fah-reaked out and said we should close the school calling the event a blizzard (okay so "everyone" was me, but still it was crazy). As I watch all of these poor kids calmly walk by my house on their way to school I realize I am totally out of my element.
- Everyone is posting facebook statuses about listening to Christmas music as a result of the snow. Confession: I've been listening to Christmas music since August.
- I got pink eye last week. I don't know if I've ever had it before. I probably have, but not since I can remember so yeah.
- Speaking of nuisances, the hamster has been missing for 6 days now. This is escape #6 in 3 months. We weren't sure if she was still alive until Joseph made the mistake of leaving her jar of food on the floor... Next day it was empty. That was like 3 weeks worth of food. Suspicions tell us she is somewhere in the utility room, probably cuddling up next to the water heater.
Apparently it is super-uncool to actually like the llamas, so my kids just complain that the llamas will probably kick or spit on them.
Come on, just look at this face:
This is not the face of a jerk llama (although in their defense one of the llamas flatulated in a kid's face) Regardless, I absolutely love llamas so too bad kids, we're staying.
Here is my pink eye:
Here is my pink eye:
Sprinkle flour across your doorways to find out where your hamster is coming/going--it will leave tracks in the flour (After 3 days of us stepping in flour we decided she is probably not in the kitchen area)
Tie a piece of string/floss to some hamster food, your hamster will take the food to her stash and you can follow the string (she just cut the floss and took the food)
When we came outside to take Joseph to school this morning there was a li'l snow on our car.
By the time I dropped him off and got back home it was going crazy
So I sat on the couch, cranked up the heater, and enjoyed the show outside my window.
