Married, part time work from home mom to DS (13 and homeschooling), DD1 (11) and DD2 (9) and a giant dopey newfoundland, a crazy border collie mix, 3 black cats and a cute rat.

Sounds as though you've both had enough of being cooped up!

A|wwe hahaa - that's the worst of being trapped inside - even the dog goes crazy! :rotflmao

 

I hope your weather has calmed down since.

Got my 13 year old out the door at 710

Daycare baby dropped off at 720

Woke up 8 year old at 740

Daycare kid dropped off at 810

Took daycare kid to school at 850

Ran errands, fed baby, drove through McDonald's for lunch STARVING because I fed all those children and had no time to eat

Ran to the grocery store, bought dinner things

Picked up daycare kid from school at 12

Fed everyone, amused everyone, finished dinner so ds could eat at 4 before baseballl

Daycare kid's family (3 kids + mom) descend , create chaos and leave 415

Dd walks in 420

Daycare baby gets picked up 425

Dh and ds leave for baseball 430

Dd eats, I eat and we need to be in the car in 12 minutes to go to ds's baseball game.

 

OH MY GOD HELP ME!!!

Get yourself a copy of the Backyard Homestead. Super primer for rural DIY living. :-)

 

As for me, not closing out this thread for the month on a strong note. Had dental work today so I feel like crap. After work, I played trains and read books with Little Man, and now I'm lounging on the couch and wallowing in my misery while husband gets dinner going and Little Man fed. May print coupons later (last of the months resets!) but am mostly going to sit and do nothing. Early bedtime.

Oh, no!  Dental work always makes me feel whipped.  Hope you feel better soon.

Thanks! Husband made me potato soup, and we're snuggling up early to watch This Old House and go to sleep. So I think that will be good.
