Mamatography Week 5 : Sick Days

We were sick this week. We have spent all week resting and watching a lot of TV. It sucks being a single mom and being sick. I’ve had zero energy, and the kids still need to be taken care of.

Unfortunately, I shared with the kiddos. Big Z did find the time to pamper me a bit before she came down sick. Aren’t my toes pretty?

Yesterday they were getting their strength back. How do I know? They started to argue and get on each others nerves. They did make some cute clay animals, though.

Clearly between being snowed and being sick, we’ve been in the house too much!!

Mamatography- Week 4 : Snowed In

  We met the most darling pig while we were downtown early this week. I have a special place in my heart for pot-bellied pigs. I’ve had two so far for pets, and they are just amazing. So gentle and lovable. This little gals’ name was Spoon, isn’t she adorable?

We had an unexpected snow storm arrive late Tuesday morning. So we spent the rest of the week bundled in close to one another. Our heater was broken and only working at half speed, so we were quite chilly. We used a space heater to warm up the bedroom.

We did cello lessons via Skype this week. I really enjoy the two of them working together on their cello. BigZ is really quite a patient teacher..most of the time.

Even the cats have been chilly this week. They’ve happily snuggled with us under the blankets. They are like furry little hot water bottles. I’m thrilled to say our heater was fixed today, but hopefully, the cats will still want to snuggle.

Mamatography- Week 3: Sinking

The Titanic Museum has been open for four years now. We have always enjoyed driving  by and seeing the giant ship and iceberg. We’ve been interested in visiting for awhile now. Finally, this year the museum offered Area Appreciation Days, where local counties could visit for only $8.50 per person. Tickets are normally over $20. for adults, even if you are with a group. So this was a great deal, I was thrilled! We were able to enjoy the museum with a few friends. You receive a boarding pass when you enter giving you the identity of one of the passengers on the ship. You find out your fate at the end of the tour.I’m pleased to say I survived! It was a bit depressing but very interesting. The audio tour was included for that price, I enjoyed the fact there was a separate audio tour designed for children. It was worth the four-year wait!
This week was tough because it would have been the week my middle daughter, Bella, turned 8. (See Bella: A Special Needs Diagnosis). A dear friend took my two kiddos for a few hours while I had a little alone time. I spent most of that time curled up in my bed reading and catching up on Downton Abbey. Our dear kitten, Scooter,(who was previously stuck in a tree), cuddled with me under the blankets all afternoon. Animals really seem to be intuitive to your feelings, have you found that?
Lastly, I wanted to share that Lil Z’s creation. He had fun creating a shield and crab in one. Yes, you read that right. He was very pleased that he made a crab (?) and a shield combination toy, with the beneficial feature of it clipping on your hand. It’s little things like this that give me chuckles through the week. Do your kids do crazy stuff like this?
 So why title this week “Sinking”..the titanic is obvious, my heart was sunk this week thinking of my sweet Bella..and a crab sinks in the ocean of course!
