I started watching Failure to Launch this morning while trying to squeeze in some Jillian. I think it set a nice little tone for the day. After 17 minutes and 17 interruptions by way of my charges I quit. Sebastian had woken up at an ungodly hour and Julia can smell when Sebastian is awake and she is asleep so she woke up at a less ungodly but still an ungodly hour as well. It felt like I should be throwing food at the kids (lunch) before the most wonderful time of the day began (naps) at 8:12 in the am and I knew no one would live to see their naps if we all stayed cooped up in the cabin. I found a crayon sticking out of Theo's mouth and decided then and there that we all needed out. Simon was in a surgery soooooo ... Costco it was.
It was freezing outside and miserable trying to get the three kids into the cart with the proper legs in the proper cart leg holes with Julia narrating, "it's just too code!! it's not too hot!!" and did I grab my Costco card? yes! and no! we are not buying that jar of 5,000 Jelly Bellies and OH MY GOSH Julia your life is not over because the receipt with the smiley that the nice worker drew on the back blew away. She couldn't hear me over her, "MY FAAAAACE!!!" .... sobs that were so loud and dramatic that she stopped an elderly lady in her tracks before Gladys popped her eyes out of stare mode and made her way into the warehouse.
We visited Simon and I stared at his pizza and bread sticks filled with cheese while I munched on some "leafs" as Julia calls them and probably cheated with some Italian dressing. Whatever.
We got home and after I finallllllllly got all the kids to sleep ... and started tap tap tapping away about all things thyroid and low iodine diets because everyone cares about both sexy subjects when BAM ... the zest of reality ... Sebastian started his blood curdling screams and was UP.
And thus .... my failure to launch a post about thyroid and low iodine diets. I'll reprioritize and get it done tomorrow ....
