Happy Friday, full moon, Valentine’s Day, y’all! I don’t know about you, but I am so glad it’s the weekend. Today is actually our Saturday because Drew is working a Sunday-Thursday schedule during the Olympics. He is also working late evenings and hasn’t been coming home until after Jackson goes to bed, giving me a small taste of what single parenthood might be like (oy). It has also snowed like three times this week and we have layers of slippery ice on the sidewalks and it’s very hard getting around, especially with a 2-year-old in tow. Yesterday, I carried him two whole blocks — for his very first ice cream date! So cute — and managed to get around ice banks, snow drifts, and two-foot slush puddles, and then right in front of our door I slipped on a patch of ice and fell hard (we were both ok, thankfully). Also, Jack’s babysitter, who watches him three mornings a week, took a snow day yesterday. Also, Jackson only naps 50% of the time these days. For all these reasons, TGIMF, yo.
I’m writing this on Friday morning and Drew is home and he’s about to take Jackson to a play space and I’m going to have like two whole hours to myself. I am going to use them to line up content for next week because that is just how much I love you guys and love working on this site. I’ll probably also do a Buzzfeed quiz or two because they are unavoidable. (But, to be honest, if it weren’t such a fucking pain walking around and if I didn’t think snow boots might ruin freshly-painted nail polish, I’d be heading out for a pedicure.).
Anyway. Does anyone have any fun Valentine’s plans?
