just because I have to....

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.

I may not be able to find the mac& cheese but I can fix your laptop when you drench it in iced tea so that you can go on blogging! said...

I am LAUGHING OUT LOUD (LOL was not strong enough). A week does not go by that this does not happen in my home. I think now that Eric has had eye surgery he will be able to find things so much easier.....oh no wait, he's still a guy.
