Treats of the Week - Silver Linings

It has been a challenging week.  I've gotten some very bad news about some very dear people.  It sucks, but things can always be worse.  I don't think it's appropriate to talk about either on the old interwebs, but I definitely appreciate everyone who has offered kind words and help over the last few days.

In other news...

  • Peanut Butter and Chocolate Pop Tarts are a thing, and they are goddamn delicious.
  • Vivian had a very busy weekend thanks to all the March Break stuff happening.  We went to see Little Ray's Reptile show again, and it was awesome!  It was a Dinosaurs: Past and Present theme, so it was a lot of crocodiles and birds of prey.

Amanda and I also took the kids to see Mickey's Rockin' Roadshow on Sunday.  They kids had a blast, and meltdowns were kept to a minimum.  Vivian did have a massive meltdown in Target later that afternoon, but we had pretty much pushed them to their limit at that point.

  • Vivian and Ellyot had to wear their princess dresses to the show, and then continued to wear them while walking through the mall.  Nothing attracts more attention than two little girls in princess dresses.
  • Having vodka in the house when you really need it.
  • The snow melting just enough to remind me that there actually is grass under there.
  • Quick and painless trips to Costco.
