We have fun out of town plans with family this weekend. It’s something we’re all looking forward to. A day off of work. A weekend away from the routine. A fun new thing to do in the middle of the winter doldrums.
But you know what’s also fun? It’s the thing I did last weekend.
NEVER LEAVING THE HOUSE THE ENTIRE WEEKEND.
Ok, I did leave ONCE because I had to pick up some swim diapers (not for me, obvi) from Target for this coming weekend. Other than that? We convinced people to come to us. Which was great for a super windy, below freezing couple of days.
So much yarn. So many episodes of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
And when my husband had people over on Sunday?
Peace out, buds, I’m going to stow myself away in our guest bedroom and just enjoy some peace and quiet until the kiddo’s naptime is over.
And if you’re curious, this is my list of essentials to basically live in a cave for 2 solid days and be ok with it:
1. Stockpile pizza delivery coupons.
2. Acquire wine during the week.
3. When letting the dog out in the backyard, take a deep breath of outside air to remind yourself what fresh air is, but also to reinforce the idea that it is way too cold for this nonsense and quickly go back inside.
Yeah. That’s about it.
Until it gets warmer, this is likely to be my routine for every other remaining week of below freezing temps.
And that is lovely.
