Yesterday proved to be a good day as I got a lot of things done. The kids can’t stand to see me sit and write so I got a lot of cleaning done. I also managed to get the frame done on a 1,000 piece puzzle I bought for the kids to put together. It’s amazing how much time you can waste sitting and staring at puzzle pieces. I shoveled too, it took me two whole hours and my whole body was screaming by the time I was done. It’s amazing how much time you can waste
shoveling and staring at piles of snow.
For lunch I decided to do something creative to break up the day for the kids. So we had an upside down lunch. An upside down lunch consists of putting a blanket over the kitchen table and eating underneath. The kids think it’s the coolest thing ever. As we sat under the table eating our PB&J and Cheetos I told the kids about how when I was little I used to eat Cheetos and then wipe my orange fingers across my eyelids and pretend that it was eye shadow. They thought that was pretty funny.
We then told stories. One person would start the
story and say two sentences and then another person would take a turn and we kept going until someone ended the story. It’s fun to see how their creative
little minds work. It was a fun day (minus the shoveling); I really enjoyed my time with the kids.
National Hugging Day
Today is national hugging day. Use it but don’t abuse it. And if you aren’t into hugs just say so. Don’t bother with the pathetic side hug either, that’s more like a half hug.
A couple of days ago I asked some of my author friends if they had ever paid for Twitter followers. I’m a pathetic loser when it comes to generating Twitter
followers. Basically they said it was a bad idea.
I was pouting and replied (big sigh) I guess money can’t buy love or good Twitter Followers. The reply was that I should put that line on a T-shirt. So I
researched it and it turns out that it’s pretty simple to get a T-shirt slogan printed. If I get enough votes I will win $500 and my slogan on a shirt. In your
free time go to the below link and vote for my slogan. Thanks in advance!
It’s nice that Facebook allows us to see what’s going on in other states and around the world. One friend in Tennessee was disappointed that they were getting no snow and that it is supposed to be 60 degrees there today. Another friend in West Virginia said to be careful because it’s slippery and the grass is crunchy. Where I live there were reports of skidding cars and pictures of accidents after the 8 inch snowfall we got yesterday. This just goes to prove one thing: the grass is always less crunchy on the other side of the fence!
British Word of the Day – Grem
Grem means to spit something out while making that god awful coughing and hacking sound that brings phlegm up the throat and into the mouth. In the U.S. we call this hawking a loogie.
