Leap Day

After thinking through this post, I've realized that nothing I'm about to write is related in any way, so I think I'm going to resort to a list. My house is filled with lists at the moment.

* Happy Leap Day!

* Yes, I just used a bullet point to wish you happy Leap Day. I'm pretty sure the movie Leap Year is to blame for this, but all of a sudden I've been thinking Leap Day is some sort of Irish holiday. When I was trying to figure out meals for this week, I almost thought I was supposed to make corned beef and cabbage or something Irish-y like that for today.

* Speaking of meal planning, I spent the bulk of the day planning out and then cooking for the month of March. I still have two meals to make, but most of them are done and in the freezer, ready to be pulled out and dumped in the Crock Pot. Yay! I've been wanting to try freezer cooking for awhile and today just seemed like a good day to do it.

(Probably because it's Leap Day and the Irish are know for planning ahead.)

(I have no idea if the Irish are known for planning ahead or not.)

Anyway, it took me about two and a half hours for the actual putting-together-of-the-items-to-be-frozen, but it took me quite a bit longer to plan it, buy the ingredients and to be honest, I haven't gone back into my kitchen because I am scared that the mess might have grown. But, I made ten meals that should give us dinner plus leftovers.

I am pretty proud of myself. ;)

* I had grand plans for the rest of today but Nathan woke up all crusty on the nose and coughing, so we stayed in the general area of our house today and I ended up staying in a pair of yoga pants all day. Again.

* I say again because yesterday my amazing mother picked both Nathan and me up, took us to her house after a brief stop at the grocery store, fed us, entertained us, watched My Fair Wedding with me while the tot slept and then Jon came over and she fed us all again.

My mom is wonderful. And then Cayce brought us Starbucks.

I heart my family so much.

I also stayed in my yoga pants all day yesterday too.

(I am becoming one of those moms who will likely end up on What Not to Wear. And I welcome it with open arms. Come, Stacy. Come, Clinton. Come, $5000 credit card. I have no sentimental value with any of my clothes.)

* I realized this last week that it has been many, many, many moons since I sat down and read a good book. In actual book form. So, I might need to change that soon. Anyone have any suggestions?

And now, Jon is home, Nathan is up playing and coughing and I'm hoping to talk Jon into watching Leap Year tonight after our baby goes to bed.

Since it's apparently an Irish holiday and all. ;)
