Clarifying...I guess it could be a little humorous....

My clarification is on the weather.  I never put a bottle of wine in the fridge...and noticed at 12 that it wasn't 80 like my weather app said.  So then I figured thunderstorms weren't going to roll in either.  So I checked my weather app on my phone and sure enough, I had it still set on Florida weather.  dumb.

Clarifying that I did do one load of laundry so far but nothing has been folded.  The window is still splattered with Sydney's smoothie drink - what have I done today...I have mastered casting on with knitting and have a washcloth half finished.  BAM! 

Today I was "THAT" mom or "THAT" neighbor.  The girls that moved in down the street are like in 4th and 2nd grade.  And they blast a radio channel that isn't really appropriate for kids (I don't think).  Don't get me wrong the channel plays great music, and I even put it on with the kids.  But I am always listening so I can shut off the talk radio that happens between songs because that is where it gets a little iffy.  So them blasting it at loudly that I can sing to Katy Perry's Firework song in my house with no windows a little much.  So I contemplated emailing the mom or just wandering over and talking to the girls.  I wandered over and used Sydney as the excuse that it is so loud that she can't nap.  I actually am surprised that she is able to nap with it on.  Anyways, they giggled and turned it down.  I am glad I went that route.  Their grandma opened the door and nodded too.  She must have agreed and maybe was relieved that she didn't have to listen to it either anymore. 

I am gearing up to get mindful on our eating around here.  Ed has been working late or not always able to let me know of his timing and I have gotten really lazy with dinners.  Sometimes I feed the kids and then I have a bowl of ice cream after they go to bed.  Sometimes I make Ed and I something else.  Sometimes it is cereal.  But I miss home cooked, well rounded meals.  They are going to make a comeback here.  BIG time. 

There was also no lunch on the picnic table.  It was still only 54 degrees at lunch.  I made the lunch happening at the picnic table when I was still in Florida's weather zone. 

Miss Sydney is such an independent little busy girl.  She roams about and is so happy when she finds one of her little books, or a little button or door to play with.  She loves to fling her toys out of bins.  And she will stand at the guest/toy room door and shout in thought is she is telling all the toys in there to watch out because she will get in there sooner than they think. 

It's Thursday.  It's been a good day so far.  Just needed to clarify that knitting was WAY more fun than folding laundry and hearing the bird chirps was worth being "that mom" and dinner is up in the air.  Waiting on daddy's ETA.

Funny you were still using Florida on your weather app, but the weather must be really nice there if you thought it could possibly be 80 today! What awesome March weather!
