it’s only words, and words are all I have

Little Mister likes sitting in a big kid chair at the big kid table. #latergram cars. always with the cars.
I put someone in the sink while I was making dinner. Because he was hanging off my legs and pushing me away from the counter. Such a "helper". #latergram They did this themselves. #yestergram

So, the sun shone today. THE SUN SHONE TODAY. It’s amazing the effect some blue sky can have on a person because the grey December skies are trying to kill me. And they’re succeeding. They make me want to crawl into a hole and never come out. Although the Saskatoon road conditions also make me want to do that because DO WE HAVE EVEN ONE SNOW PLOW IN THIS CITY? AND NO I AM NOT GOING TO LET THIS GO BECAUSE IT IS FREAKING RIDICULOUS. I mean, I’m not expecting my street to get plowed, since it has never — in the two years, five months, and seven days we’ve lived here — ever been plowed. Even though it currently has more than a foot of snow on it. But main roads? SHOULD NOT have MORE THAN A FOOT of snow on them FIVE DAYS AFTER the snow fell. And when the roads DO finally get plowed? They should not get plowed BACKWARD, during RUSH HOUR. Seriously.

I’m done now.

guys and balls Go to sleeeeeep. You are very tiiiiiired.
Gorgeous hoar frost this morning! (It's my first time leaving the house since Thursday.) Thanks, Mom!

In the real world, the grey skies make me not want to do anything that requires leaving my bed. Or my couch. Or my house. And I want to eat ALL THE THINGS that are bad for me. Although I did quit diet coke. Six days and counting. But, um, I kind of fell off the wagon yesterday, so, one day. And counting. Mr Christmas (aka Noah) would love to have our freezer overflowing with Christmas baking and the house overflowing with Christmas pretties, but I’m just not into it. I really don’t like (secular) Christmas at all. Music? Decorations? Baking? Presents? I could do without all of it. And yesterday I told Liliana that Santa Claus is not real. I am a horrible, horrible person.

In the internet world, the grey skies make me ignore my inbox, privatize all but a few months of my blog archives, strongly consider blowing the blog up entirely, and abbreviate my Facebook name as much as possible in an attempt to become a little more anonymous. I fight disappearing completely all day long.


Someone insisted on sitting at the table with the big kids. And joining in their conversations. Someone got a suit today.
At the police station getting a couple criminal record checks done. Poptropica time. I don't care what they're playing, they're GETTING ALONG!!!   (Okay, I do care what they play and monitor them closely, but still. GETTING ALONG! No fighting! No rudeness! No yelling! It's a Black Friday miracle.)

Also? I’ve been reading Twilight. I KNOW. I hate myself. I’m a sucker for self-destructive behaviour. But for once, I found a movie that is better than the book. The first Twilight book? HORRIBLE. The movie? Also horrible, but at least it had A PLOT LINE. The second book was better. The second movie still had terrible acting, but had some action. The third book? Even better. More action, less vomit-worthy EDWARD IS SO BEAUTIFUL! than the previous two books. Maybe the fourth book will be void of AND EDWARD IS SO BEAUTIFUL? One can only hope. But as much as I think they’re horrible, I also can’t stop reading. I’m pretty sure every Twilight book is laced with CRACK.

In news of things involving better taste, Noah and I have been going though Boy Meets World during the few moments our children are concurrently unconscious. We own the first season and have been getting the next ones from the library. In light of the whole Girl Meets World thing, it just feels like the right thing to do.

And in the Things That Suck category, all the kids are sick. With different stupid things. Kaylie spent Tuesday and Wednesday at home with a headache and sore throat. Liliana’s voice is hilariously hoarse. She puked all over Noah on Tuesday night (because she couldn’t stop coughing because she couldn’t stop crying) and peed all over Noah on Wednesday night. The latter is not sickness, but he is sure nervous about what tonight holds. Preston has had green snot flowing from his nostrils for about a week now, and woke up from his nap on today with grooblies in his eyes. FANTASTIC.

OH! But in SUPER GOOD news? I finally sent out the rest of Preston’s birth announcements this morning. He’ll be 20 months old in five days. I rule at life.

And then I asked Noah to proof-read this post and he told me that it’s kind of whiny. So I hit the Publish button anyway because that is what I do.

    It could be worse. You could be reading 50 Shades of Grey.

    • mrswilson Friday, December 7, 2012, 5:03 am

      Ha! That will never happen. EVER.

      • Becca Friday, December 7, 2012, 10:21 am

        Stick to that Never. I promise you, you are not missing a thing.

          I read them. And by read, I mean I skimmed them.
          Atrocious writing, totally unbelievable plot, and I’m sorry, but BDSM leanings are not the sign that someone is screwed up, nor do those interests typically develop because of neglected childhoods and early sexual experience.
          That kind of history is more in line with psychopathy…

    I feel exactly the same way about the Twilight books. The last two movies are the best and I actually liked the last book. Seriously they could have cut out the first 2 or 3 (I forget how many there are) and just went straight to the last one. So. Much. Better.

    Sonja’s comment made me laugh!

    Get better Wilsons!

  • Kami Friday, December 7, 2012, 9:18 am

    PS tell Noah if he swings by my house I can set him up with lots of baking and you can claim you made it. I am cool with that because then I won’t eat it all!

    • mrswilson Friday, December 7, 2012, 9:57 am

      And now he wishes we still lived in Regina! ;)

  • Becca Friday, December 7, 2012, 10:23 am

    Feel better all!

    And I hope you get more blue skies to help you deal with the grey ones.

    How do you feel about fresh flowers? A nice bouquet of pretty flowers on my kitchen counter helps me in the dead of a dreary winter….

    • mrswilson Friday, December 7, 2012, 10:26 am

      I do like flowers, but my allergies do not! They make me sneeze. :(

    “I’m pretty sure every Twilight book is laced with CRACK.”

    That is the ONLY reasonable explanation!! I own all the books and they stare at me, taunting, because they know I will read them again despite knowing how awful I find them >.<

    • mrswilson Friday, December 7, 2012, 10:50 am

      And I nearly bought the box set at Costco the other day. CRACK!

  • Monstergirlee Sunday, December 9, 2012, 9:54 am

    You won’t lose me that easily.
    I have yet to check out the Twilight books, good to know I’m not missing anything.
    Hope things get easier soon, take care.

  • jennifer glen Monday, December 10, 2012, 12:16 pm

    I just heard the Life of Pi movie is actually better than the book, if you can believe it, and I heard the book was good too. I haven’t read or seen either, so I’m just going on what someone told me.

    • mrswilson Monday, December 10, 2012, 12:33 pm

      I’ll put that one next on my list. :)

  • Meg Wednesday, December 12, 2012, 4:43 pm

    Can’t get rid of my with some whiny, lady, though I may be behind in reading :)
    Couldn’t handle Twilight. The books or the movies, although Taylor Lautner looks a lot my step-brother who passed away 9 years ago, so it’s nice to look at him sometimes and think what he’d be like if he was still kicking around :)

  • mamalang Friday, December 14, 2012, 10:50 am

    I think I commented on your Facebook or Instagram, but Yes, they are laced with Crack. And after I read them? I felt antsy and unfulfilled with my life. Uhm, thanks but I don’t ever want to live that teenager angst again. Come to think of it, it was about this time of year when I read them. Maybe that helped contribute to that feeling?

    Anyway….I wish you lived closer. We could commiserate in the hate of winter and Twilight together :)

    P.S. – I love Sonja’s comment as well. Won’t be reading those anytime soon.

    P.P.S. – I went back and capitalized just for you :)
