Cabin Fever Saturday

Today and the last 3 days have been lame. The air quality is the worst in the country, the temp is in the teens, we had an ice storm leaving everything covered in a sheet of ice, oh, and I have a 1 1/2 year old. It's just no fun being outside!

The only outings have been to get my car registered, we went out to eat with my father-in-law last night and dinner with my family tonight. Which the eating out part was fun. We went to Settabellos tonight and had pizza and Gelatto! Yum!

The highlight of the day for Ollie was a present of play food from my mom. He told us all about the food, laughed, clapped, smiled and danced about it. We were all cracking up. He loves an audience!

Josh wore an Idaho outfit today. I did not approve of it. He loves to bother me.

Yes this blog has not been a priority for me this past year. I had way too much fun with Instagram! So if your curious to see what happened in 2012 follow Josh or I.

I have been thinking lately that I need to record my life without a photo and a little blurb. Other things go on that aren't photographed. And then there is a part of me that feels like I should make this private so I can write all of my feelings without holding back (cause I feel I have to edit since its not private and people will think I'm crazy). But then I LOVE reading other people's blogs and learning how their lives and how they are dealing with their experiences. What to do?

For now I'm going to try and make an actual effort to record. Plus Ollie goes to bed at 8. Which means bedtime routine is done between 8:30 and 9. So what they really means is I HAVE evenings! EVENInNGS! It's so nice to have time to myself to get things done and relax again.

I might do a month by month recap of what happened last year. Or I might just say forget about it. This is what is going on now. Stay tuned!

The photo is me trying my best to keep Ollie occupied while working. A whole hot and a half ( paper clip, Q tips, I pad, play dough, toothbrush, blankie and Mickey. $ Miracles can happen!
