Well, we've slouched into Lent here, and when I say slouched do I mean it: I had grand ideas of limiting screen time, and I think we've been actually pretty successful with the older kids - they are at least being mindful of screens and building Legos a lot more - but GAH the younger ones. Sometimes I just need to think or cook or do the laundry and boom. Back to Scooby Doo.
But I have not had chocolate in two and a half days! And NO FACEBOOK. I know you can't stand it either - the unbearable suffering around here. But when I want to ignore my children and absentmindedly scroll around on Facebook, I CAN'T. I have to either do something more productive...or pay attention to the little buggers. The horror.
So I'm slogging along, trying to be a slightly holier person. It's pretty darn hard for a hedonist like me.
Speaking of self-inflicted misery, here is a link to my "detox journey" for Tulsa Kids. Although let's ignore that it is a three day detox and I did about 3/4 of a day. I think what I learned? I was just meant to chew.
Anyhoo. Today starts the spring soccer season, and it is about 33 degrees and raining. And windy. Spring soccer season always starts about two weeks to soon. By the Grace of God Will's games (yes there were two) were cancelled, but Rory and PVT are in Oklahoma City playing in this awful muck. I wholly understand the desire to play soccer when it's 70 degrees, with no wind and no humidity; under any other meteorological conditions I am left confused. And then we have two more games this afternoon. So I'm here worrying and fretting that no one gets a nice old case of pneumonia before spring break.
Come soon spring and Easter!
