This week has been hectic. Two sick kids, driving all over creation to Peanut's daycare, and getting lost twice on the way there, and work of course. We went to see the Christmas tree lighting at the Capitol. It was beautiful and very Xmasy. Except for the two extraordinarily whiny kids I had with me. Who's kids were those? I have no idea, not mine certainly. Yesterday was Peanut's 9th birthday! Stop growing damn it. Normally I'd post this on Sunday, but since it's Christmas I thought you guys could use the internet to escape from your family for a minute. Here's some of the links that have kept me awake all week.
And here's the weeks link that helped me stay awake all night. Enjoy!
