Minus Thirty Seven

January 23, 2012

Just a sample temperature from the past week and a half. Also my sanity on a scale of one to ten. (We’ve also been under quarantine due to a pink eye outbreak. If I ever get a chance to make a horror movie, the opening scene will be the application of antibiotic ointment to the pink eye of an hysterical preschooler.)

Today was dangerously warm at -25 C, but things really get going Wednesday  when we’ll have a brief, bittersweet visit with temperatures just this side of zero. I’ll be taking the children sledding in their bathing suits.

Anyway, things can get a bit loopy around here when we’re not allowed out of the house.

The result of James and I being cooped up: Unconventional portraits of myself. I posed for this. Who do you think has more talent?

The result of Jasper being cooped up: Anger. At least that’s not my leg.

The result of J.D. being cooped up: Inventing Lego sets that probably would have been discontinued. This is the Logger vs Eco-terrorist set.

    Jasper biting the table reminds me of the toddler in Lemony Snicket who loved to chew things.

    Hope everyone is feeling better soon – Jasper is looking a bit desperate!

    I see you still have your wonderful creativity with Lego, JD – albeit in a more adult fashion!

    Awwww, the cold spells. I think it seems even worse this year because we have had such a mild winter! At least we will get a bit of warmth coming up!
    I don’t envy you the antibiotic in the eye drops, we had to do eye drops for Lachlan about a year ago, when he was a bit smaller and little less strong, and even then it was almost a 3 adult job, one to sit on him, one to hold his eyelid open without ripping it off because he was struggling to keep it closed so tightly, and the last to be a super hero and get that drop into his eye in the 1/4 of a millisecond that we were able to hold it open for.

    You poor people! I, too, remember the screaming and struggling that came with eye drops. That was me. You kids were great.
