I hope all of you in CA will remain safe. <3
Let's see: destructive fires, massive earthquakes, devastating hurricanes, mass shootings, trash talking with nuclear-weapon-wielding despots ... did I miss anything? >_<
Fairly nondescript weekend, although I did kick my legs out from under myself on Saturday at tkd class, trying to do a kick that my PA tkd school didn't like so I'd never done it until 2 weeks ago. Landed flat on my back, essentially unhurt, but I had minor whiplash pain in my neck Sun-Mon. MiniPlu volunteered at a color run (where they throw colored chalk at you as you pass by) - she did this last year and had a great time, but this year they stuck her and her friend on bounce-house-minding duty, instead of chalk duty. The region where the race was has a reputation for rich brats and, sure enough, MiniPlu came home in a towering rage at the horrible children she'd had to deal with for several hours, while their moms stood around, noses in phones, and did nothing. Our church had their first-ever doggie-themed picnic/bbq thing - low-key and casual, but it was nice to take Jade on a field trip, so to speak, and the animals were all blessed by our priest. (We told Jade this means we expect her to be positively angelic from now on.)
Also on Saturday, I was pulled over by a cop and politely informed that my car was ( out of registration )
Otherwise, yes, weekend was fine. Ran a bunch of errands, kids and I got our flu shots, slogged through exhaustion yesterday (Mon) morning - I was awake from 7:40a-9a, went back to bed in lieu of running, got up again at 10:30a, dragged my feet until finally going to the kitchen to make caramel for the apple pie I'd baked the night before, and pumpkin chocolate-chip bread to take to school today. And only around 12:15p did I finally get around to the treadmill.
Will and I seem to be taking turns being mopey and depressed. I suppose it's better than both struggling at the same time, but it means not a lot of joy going around, you know?
So here, have a smile: how to put peanut butter on bread in five easy steps
, none of which involve just using a knife. :P
Yuletide assignments are out! I am cautiously optimistic about my assignment. It definitely bears a lot of further thought, but I really hope I can have fun with it. Anyone else on my flist participating in Yuletide this year?
Speaking of fandoms, here's the rest of the 'shipping meme, gacked from thesmallhobbit
: ( Would you ship them in a box? Would you ship them with a fox? )
And, as usual, I need to go fall on my face now.
