So, Friday night, I went scrapbooking. Eric was in charge of the young'ens. He was also in charge of our neighbors kids. He was going to make them dinner - hot dogs, Kraft Mac and Cheese, and some fruit. No big deal.
When I came home, at midnight, the following conversation took place:
Eric: You know, when you tell me to feed the kids Mac and Cheese, it would probably be a good idea to actually HAVE some.
Me: We do HAVE some. It's in the pantry.
Eric: Uh, no we don't. I tore the pantry apart, and it's not there.
I walk into the pantry, look for about three seconds, and find the Kraft Mac and Cheese. I also pull out the Trader Joe's Organic Mac and Cheese as well.
Me: UM, what's this?
Eric: Where did you find that? I looked CAREFULLY. REALLY.
I open the freezer and pull out the large Stouffer's Mac and Cheese.
Me: We had these as well.
Eric: You are AMAZING*.
Two things you have to know - he DID try to call me, but the STUPID cell phone was on vibrate, and I missed all three of this calls. AND, he did make some quasi Mac and Cheese that most of the kids loved. Way to GO Dad!!!
(*yeah, he didn't really say that - but I KNOW he was thinking it. Oh and Linda....all I could think about was that card you gave me for my first anniversary...."Honey, we're out of butter.")
But I digress.
It's been cold, and snowy. But, for the last two days the SUN has been out...making those twenties seem not so bad.
A couple photos from the last few days:
It's winter, it's cold, it's a pain in the butt, but it's only January. We have at least three more months to go. I can't start hating it now. And, truthfully, I am okay with it, for the moment.
