I have the winter crazies. Cabin fever has hit us hard. Connor can feel it and it's giving me that itch that makes me want to chop my hair off. A temporary cure: drawing with dry erase markers. We have two big glass panels in our dining room that have been sorely neglected since the cold set in, so they became our canvasses.
It's a little hard to see, but 'Rado's eyes are the black dots on the right and my hand is traced in red on the left
I traced my hand, then traced Connor's nugget. Connor added his hair in after I drew on his eyes, nose and mouth. The next time the little man wants to draw with markers, I'll suggest the windows first. They can be reused, we don't have to waste paper, and it's one less thing I need to keep on hand. Win!
That took care of Connor's winter blahs for a few minutes, but what about mine? How do you handle the mid-winter doldrums? I think a visit to the chocolate shop is in order. Maybe shop for a new book for 'Rad and I (book suggestions?). Eating, coffee, and a book can fix anything.
Side note: While writing this post I was watching the episode of Bones where she has her baby. It almost made me want to cry. Seriously, it's Bones. Get me out of this house and off to coffee, chocolate, and book land, please.
