It took me 2 hours. The temperature was around 14 degrees and the wind was blowing around 20 mph. But I was super bundled. My three layers of pants gave everyone a good laugh. Thankfully there are no pictures for proof!
I should mention that I have exercised for a total of 6 hours over the past 5 years. So when I woke up this morning I found myself to be nearly immobile. Of course all my kids are home because school is called off and Tim has gone back to work so this poses a bit of a problem for me. From my bed, I told Ava to open the pantry door and "have at it".
My current state also comes at an inopportune time for Tim - we are celebrating his 36th birthday tonight! I have done nothing to prepare and now I'm incapable of doing much of anything.
I drug my body down to the basement and searched through the "Birthday Stuff" box. I found this:
Here's what we came up with:
I also found these candles:
See how it makes a 36? No one has turned 6 yet, so we don't have that number candle. We also don't have any treats that I can shove these candles in so I think I'll make him a peanut butter sandwich and stuff them on top.
I'm going to have the girls make some cards - as a parent, you can't really scoff at homemade cards right?
Poor guy. Tim is such a great dad and husband and deserves better. I hope that getting out of shoveling the driveway was a good enough gift for him :/
Happy 36th babe!
