I don’t know about you, but I’m beyond ready for spring to get here. I don’t know how much more of this cold I can take! Normally, I’m like “Yay! Cold!” and “You can always put on more layers. There’s a certain point where removing layers can get you charged with indecent exposure.” but this year is RIDICULOUS! I feel like this winter started WAY before any of the other 23 winters I’ve experienced in my life. And people talk about global warming. HA!
As we all know, Groundhog Day is February 2nd. I see NO point in this “holiday” at all. When did Punxsutawney Phil go to college and get his degree in meteorology (or whatever the proper term is)? Plus, why do we rely on a GROUNDHOG to tell us if there will be 6 more weeks of winter?! NEWS FLASH! The first day of spring is ALWAYS March 21. Never any earlier, never any later! It’s the way the world works! The only plus of Groundhog Day is the movie Groundhog Day showing ALL DAY LONG!
Now that that little rant is over, I’ll move on to updates. Little Man’s birthday party is slowly coming together, although I still don’t know what type of food we’re going to have. I need to find sharper scissors before I can finish Little Man’s outfit for his party because the cutting I have to do is way too intricate for the scissors I currently have. Little Man is still working on his top two teeth coming through. I’ll be SO relieved when they finally come in. Little Man has 10 to 20 minutes of walker time everyday now because Poopyhead (my husband) feels he’s behind everyone else his age.
Speaking of Poopyhead, he is in Georgia for the week. His brother is graduating from Army Basic Training on Wednesday and he drove down today so he could get a bit of rest before facing his brother’s wife (don’t even get me started on that topic, you do not have the time to read about it). Little Man and I were going to go but couldn’t due to limited funds. So far since Poopyhead left today, we’ve played, watched movies, napped, and he got a bath. He’s in bed fast asleep now.
OH! I just remembered why I titled this post what I did! I LOVE smoothies. Like absolutely freaking LOVE them. I worked in a coffeehouse like thing my first semester of college and we made smoothies and I got hooked. They were so addictive, I probably got about one a day no matter what the weather. Everyone thinks smoothies are great for you, but I’m fairly certain these ones weren’t. I’m trying to eat a little healthier than usual, so I whipped up a green smoothie today. Now, you’re probably like “green smoothie eww” and I would have to say you are wrong. If you use the right type of green (I used spinach) and you add in the right things, you don’t taste the green at all! I mixed in milk, yogurt, banana, and peanut butter and that smoothie was GREAT! I have this issue of adding too much stuff to my blender, so I have enough left over for breakfast tomorrow (and possibly the next day). I want to try to introduce it to Little Man, but I need to figure out how to thin it out more.
Ok, I think that’s enough of my rambling. How is February treating you? Let me know!
