It has been really, really cold. Apparently Watertown made national new for being the coldest town in the U.S. or something. Plus, Chris asks for it often, and I never make it. Mainly because I'm not very good a making chili. I am trying to use those dry beans and I never get them prepped all the way or something. If I use cans it becomes mushy...and don't bet me started on the over all taste. I think I'm an okay cook. Not horrible, not wonderful. I just go through phase where meal after meal is a disappointment. I'm in one of those phases now. If you have a chili recipe, please share. I am trolling the interwebs to find one.
Amelia had taken on the new task of changing her clothes a bajillion times a day. I don't care too much except I'm not fully aware she is changing her clothes until she walks out in the living room or where ever I may be. And she makes a pretty big mess during the wardrobe changes. And I'm laxing on making her put away her last outfit since it's not dirty. My fault, but she should realize that is what I want from her right?
And Simon...Oh Simon. When he isn't screaming or clinging to my leg, then he is determine to piss his siblings off by changing the input on the television. Owen now knows how to change it back, but as soon as it is changed back Simon waddles his way to change it yet again. Which then begins the whining that was mentioned two paragraphs up.
I'm hopeful anyway.
While driving home from school.
Brent (the kids' friend): I want that. (points at Taco Bell)
Brent: I want that. (still pointing at Taco Bell)
Brent: That. (Taco Bell)
Amelia: I don't know what your problem is.
Driving up to the gate.
Soldier wearing neck gaiter: Welcome to Fort Drum.
Soldier: Have a good evening.
Chris: You too.
Amelia: He looks like a "inja".
Talking about her "friend" from Carolina. (not sure who the friend is).
Amelia: Hers in bed.
Me: She's in bed.
Amelia: Right, hers in bed.
Me: Not her, she.
Amelia: Her-she's in bed.
Me: Yes, she.
Amelia: Hers in bed.
Pronouns are hard.
Now I'm just searching for things to share. I posted more this week than usual. Or maybe I'm trying to finish up to watch Season 1 Disc 5 of Game of Thrones.
