Playing Webkinz games to collect extra kinzcash for my kids. Yeah, that's why.
Reading Twilight and immersed in adolescent fantasies.
Gearing up to make transition from 1 smoke a day to zero. Much harder than I imagined. Now I want, like, 5.
Mourning the end of Christmas break.
Tending to my very sick little boy who has been feverish, not eating, and coughing for a week. Doctor tomorrow.
Planning some more winter escapes.
Worrying about my sister who's jet-lag depression has lasted too long.
Cursing the deep bitter cold of January.
Watching movies. Benjamin Button, Bedtime Stories, Edward Scissorhands (with the kids for the first time and then feeling really bad because Ben cried when Vincent gave Edward his new hands for Christmas and then died).
Shopping for a multitude of birthday party gifts for kids who were inconsiderate enough to be born the first week of January.
Answering Daisy's very specific questions about sex. Hard to talk to your 9 year old about this when she still believes in Santa. Harder still when she cringes and makes horrified faces when I clumsily attempt to explain. Curses on those twins in her class who started this discussion with her.
Feeling a bit guilty about all the things I should be doing.
Feeling excited about the things I hope to do this year.
