  • First let me update you on last night's rolls. Campbell was really talking them up, but I just had the feeling like they weren't going to work-and they didn't. They rose a little bit, but overall they were pretty dense and not tasty at all. I will not give up though.
  • Today it was even more difficult getting the kids up and out of bed. However, we did it-school went well. Whitman finished before noon, and that is always cause for celebration.
  • I did a few things after lunch, but soon I was headed to the ice skating rink with Campbell and her friends. I was the designated mother that was staying. They started ice skating so I went in there-and brrr, it was cold.
  • I immediately saw the fireplace, but there was a lady there hogging it all. So I sat down once, but soon realized I needed to get someplace warm. I figured that since heat rises, I needed to get someplace high-so I went to the top of the bleachers. It was still cold there.
  • I thought about Door Dashing me some hot chocolate from Starbucks, but figured that was silly. I eventually did see the fireplace lady stand up, and I beelined it to that fireplace. And I didn't stand up for the rest of the time that we were there because I sure wasn't loosing my spot.
  • My backside was rather warm when it was time to leave, but I honestly don't think that I can feel my toes yet! Campbell had fun, and that's all that matters though.
  • Back at home, Robby left to go and pick up supper-he had a mystery shop. Anderson and Graham left for basketball practice. While I waited on Robby to come back with supper, I walked on the treadmill for a little bit trying to warm up. 
  • We then ate supper, and now I am sitting shivering on the couch. Keaton is working on a birthday present for a friend, Reagan is upstairs surfing on her computer, Campbell is in the bonus room playing on an old xbox, Whitman is watching his ipad in the living room with us, and Anderson and Graham have abut 20 minute left of practice. And I'm trying to figure out if I need to drink some hot chocolate or take a hot shower to warm myself up!
