Might have used this title before, not sure. Kids are home today, feels like -28 C with the wind chill, Louis is napping, Ruby is not. Really struggling to get her down these days, I just don’t know what it is. She is in her room, playing and crying off and on. For some reason I can lay awake at night thinking of things to write on here, but then when it actually comes to it my mind goes blank. I would like to post some non-baby related news but honestly, there is just not any non-baby things happening – at all. I did go to the Peter Doig show here which was awesome, and actually we also looked through the design collection they have at the museum here and it was so fun! It is really solid. Maybe I will find a few images and post them here just to take a break from all the baby photos.

This girl just keeps crying, wish I knew what to do…

The very, very end is cut off, basically just the music and fade out, the only downside. Loved this movie so much!!

From his soon-to-be Auntie! Lucky boy. And lots of other things. I actually uploaded a ton of photos but I am trying to pace myself. Basically had to force myself to pick up a camera again these last few weeks, feel like I have really let everything slide this last bit but am now trying to make a concerted effort to become one with the world again. Finally took down our “winter” tree (aka our Christmas tree), I am sure everyone in my family will breathe a sigh of relief about that. Turning into that kind of a crazy lady for sure. Just for the record I removed all Christmassy type of ornaments and added hearts to keep in season, but well, whatever.

What else? Not much. BUT, we did watch the best animated movie the other day, will post it next.

On That Note…

I am actually completely digging this right now, the animation is so terrific and the jazzy beats are great too. Plus endless references to NYC, which seems neat (using all my 5oies lingo here). I love the contrast of the painterly backdrops and the stiff figures…so wish I could draw like this. Maybe with some practice??

Oh Yes, And 2014.

Don’t even know where to start. Strange times. Patrick got a short-term teaching job at a university a province away which means I am solo with the kids. Not all bad, but definitely intense, and I haven’t really felt the brunt of it yet because of help from family and friends. The upshot is that there is zero time for anything non-baby related, so there is absolutely nothing doing with anything. I have a big fat zero to report on the getting anything done front. But, on the bright side (just deleted the non-bright side lucky you), I have learned to make a quiche (hard for me), the house is *tidy* if not “clean”, I have now watched all 140 vids on youtube of The Berenstein Bears, and we are now working our way through 105 vids of the 1960s Spiderman cartoon. We have found some amazing things at the thrift store, Dear Mom took me to IKEA, Dear Dad bought me a seasons worth of groceries, Patrick will back to visit in 2 weeks for a week, and well, you know, time marches onward so things will get better soon. Right?
