Today was a movie day. After breakfast the trio of sproglets watched Frozen. Then Sophie and I mixed up a load of chocolate chip (and Easter egg sprinkles) cookie dough, and all four of us rolled out cookie balls for baking. After lunch and half of Freaky Friday, we went to a local railroad museum. When we got back, Ryan and Sophie played outside for a while, and Alyssa watched the last half of Freaky Friday. Then it was on to Brave, then Coraline. Four movies in one day? That’s more than we usually watch in two weeks. But it was just that kind of day, what with Dan and I having colds, and all of us thrown for a loop thanks to Daylight Saving Time (I still want my hour back).
My favorite photos from today’s museum trip are of Ryan making almost eye contact with me/the camera! This doesn’t often happen, so when it does, I definitely notice. ♥ He and the girls had a great time checking out the various train engines and cars, and it was especially neat to watch a conductor use steam to make a miniature train move! I’ll post photos tomorrow, as our incredibly slow DSL connection means the photos won’t hit Flickr for at least another half an hour, and I’m out of patience.
Edit: here’s an adorable Instagrammed photo of Alyssa, Ryan, and Sophie!
Now Sophie is home, my sprogs are in bed with their new stuffed animals (a dragon for Alyssa, and a bat for Ryan – surprise gifts from Amanda and Bowtie), and Dan and I are relaxing in the living room. Even though it only “feels” like 8:05pm, I’m going with the clock’s 9:05pm and am tempted to call it a (n early) night. #feelingold
Amanda’s daughter is with us for the weekend. I picked her up from her after-school program yesterday, which was an interesting experience: I fail at door codes, and my non-existent uterus did a small leap at the sight of the babies in the Baby Room. But then as I made my way to the rooms […]

My kidneys are two organs I have never had a problem with. Since childhood I’ve drank nothing but milk, lots of water, and the occasional cup of juice. From my early twenties onward, nothing but water, as I cut out milk to cut out fat grams and calories. I drink water like a horse, though […]
