Please pass the wine

For really good reasons (like, I have a room at BlogHer to pay for and I need to buy pants thanks to the “Summer Spread” and my laptop is still broken) Joshua and I aren’t leaving the house much these days.

Because when we leave the house we spend money.

On stupid things like food he won’t eat and things I don’t REALLY need. Like stationery. Or $5 coffees.

So we’re mostly staying at home because it’s a billion degrees outside so playgrounds are out. And we are going NUTS.

NUTS, I say.

We got out yesterday and went for an in-home play date with a friend and that was a welcomed reprieve from being trapped at home.

This morning? He amused himself by unrolling the toilet paper from the stand in the bathroom and flipping the lights on and off because he can reach them. And then he ran back and forth from room to room going “AHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!” and waving his hands in the air like he was on the run from a hairy gorilla monster. Or me.

I? Almost joined in. Because I was kind of losing my mind.

And then naptime got here and I thought “Ahhh, sweet relief.” And it was.

And then he woke up and he was all “AAAAAAAAHHHHHHWAAAAAHHHHWANTICENOWWAAAAAAHHH” freaking out until his Daddy got home. And then? Joshua amused himself by spinning in circles until he got so dizzy he couldn’t stand up straight. And he just fell over and laughed.

Again? I almost joined in with him. Because WHY NOT?


We need a new plan. STAT.

But for now I am going to go drown douse my crazy in wine and Weeds. There may or may not be cookies.

I hope you had cookies! You deserved them! Those days are so hard when you stay in. I am trying to remember what my kids did. They are teenagers now, but I remember wanting to pull my hair out!

A. I feel your pain. Seriously. B. I think I need to start watching Weeds, which means I'd need to Netflix them from Season 1. Is it awesometastic?

are the malls indoors? air conditioned? Leave your credit cards and cash at home and just go let him run around like crazy. bring some cars or balls. Who cares what people think. ;)

We have two local malls with indoor play areas, but the problem with going is that most of the time he won't play. He just clings to me and refuses to go play on the climbing things. So I end up in a bad mood because it feels like a wasted trip. BUT--it's on the list of places to go when we absolutely must bust out of the house.

I'm stopping and picking up cheap red wine, oranges, grapefruit, and apples for sangria on my way home. And I'm locking myself in my basement after the kids go to bed and watching cheesy horror flicks.

Mmm. Sangria.

Two words: Indoor playground!

Another two words: Coffee. Wine.

Good luck!
