We three are all home, all together again for the fourth day in a row thanks to the freezingest, frostiest days of the season. Our region shuts down when sleet or snow roll into town, and as we speak there's a thick layer of ice covering everything. The forecast is even worse for tomorrow, and all I can say is yay for me hauling my cookies to two different Wa1marts last night in search of the World of Warcraft expansion pack that was released at midnight, or else we all might go cabin-fevery, but with it we are happy to snuggle under blankies and simmer soup and chat on ventrilo with our pals and let Huckle watch the same three episodes of Wonderpets and Dora whenever he asks.

Things are much better with The Hub back home for a bit. He'll be leaving again soon, and I'm sure by 4 days in I'll be a mess again, but I think that is okay. I'm adjusting, Huckle's adjusting, we're all just trying to figure out what happens next... But I'll tell you what, Huck's smarter, funnier, cuter, and more adorable after I take a long nap or spend a good chunk of the day being un-Mommy.

Is the expansion pack worth buying? Hubby wants it but he just got the game at Christmas. :)

Ain't it the truth.

And they are SO adorable when they are asleep.

Did I ever tell you that one a very few occassions when I was very, very tired I put a little boy in front of his favorite TV show and put my head in his lap to take a nap? They think it is funny and I know that if they get up they will wake me up.

I love Yondalla's nap idea. That's excellent.

I'm glad your husband is home for a few days and you have a bit of a reprieve.

I am relating to your last line. A nap and some time for myself does wonders.

my computer died and I had to get a new one, and I lost all my bookmarks. Can you send me the address of Spotted dog three again?
