I have not been away from this house in 4 days. Sunday was just one of those days and then a winter storm hit St. Louis which has held Monkey Pants and I captive here in this place of ours. We only have one car that is safe to drive in any sort of weather and Shane has to take that to work. So, today was day 4 of Mom and Monkey...stranded. It isn't an all bad thing being stranded. You don't have to get out of your pjs. No one knows if you do your hair or not. You find humor in the simple things. Like when I saw a recipe in the paper yesterday called "Uncle Jim's Wiener Winks" and laughed out loud and then called Beth and told her so she could laugh with me. Weiner Winks, thats funny stuff.
At about 3:00 today I thought I just might lose my mind if I did not get outside so I bundled up Monkey Pants for some time in the snow. Her first time in the snow really. She doesn't have snow boots and the snow is like 8 inches deep so I put some grocery bags around her feet and legs to keep them dry. Good idea eh? Monkey did not think so. Miss Monkey Pants doesn't talk a whole lot yet so I don't know exactly what she was thinking when I took her outside, but I think it may have been something like this...
So, our time in the snow consisted of me carrying Marlie around while she pointed and told me where to go which frankly got old real fast. That kid is heavy.
Tomorrow we might just get outta here. Maybe.
Work wise I am editing some shoots (Lacinys and Shebans they are coming!), coming up with some new ideas and thinking about fun projects that I want to do but probably never will for lack of time. Such is life.
The biggest thing I am working on is a new customer gallery site and new products to offer. I know what I want, I want SIMPLE. I want great, simple, and affordable. The only thing is, researching all of this and finding the best, simple solution...not so simple. I am getting there. I am close. It is weeks like this that I wish I had a business partner. I have had way to many conversations with myself in the last few days. Some outloud. Which only further confirms that I HAVE TO GET OUT OF THIS HOUSE tomorrow!
