Yesterday I kept Elliott home from school. She woke up with a cough. It was cold. It was raining. It was windy.
Pros and Cons of being “stuck” at home on a rainy day with a coughing kid:
Plan Holden’s party
Fold and put away laundry
Do more laundry
Make the guest bed for Uncle Rodney this weekend
Write thank you notes
Less likely to spend money (unless I shop on-line, which I don’t do much)
Have a Chocolate Peanut Butter milkshake while one kid is napping
Have a Chocolate Peanut Butter milkshake while one kid is napping!
Why did I do that? Why did I pull out the Dreyer’s Slow Churned Rich & Creamy Vanilla Bean Light Ice Cream, lowfat milk, TJ’s Organic Midnight Moo Chocolate Syrup and the jar of peanut butter???
Why did I throw it all in the blender with some crushed ice???
Why did it seem like a good idea at the time???
Because it looked like this:
I don’t need to be eating this…a rice cake maybe? Some water? But not this.
So, I don’t recommend making this. It’s NOT good. Who likes chocolate and peanut butter together? Who likes ice cream? Who likes milkshakes?
Today is a new day! I will put on my NB’s this evening and do a little run…I am going to run AWAY from Milkshake Land!
