Friday morning, I was a bit sluggish and didn't have time to dry my hair before running out the door to catch the train. I blew the hair dryer over it for maybe one minute. The strands of my hair are very fine but I have a lot of them and my hair is halfway down my back. It takes forever for it to air dry. If I leave the house with wet hair in the morning, the underside will still be damp at lunch.
So I ran out the door with it wet and then my favorite commute occurred. That would be the one when the train is 20 minutes late and I'm standing outside in 30 degree weather with wet hair. Awesome.
This cold (sickness now, not weather) is horrible. No wonder why the girls were so miserable. I am actually surprised that they weren't worse. I was doing better yesterday. I slept in for a few hours and my sore throat was gone. My nose was still very runny but I thought I was on the mend. Until today.
My sore throat is back and I keep coughing. There's a lot of gunk. I feel achy. Wah. Wah. Wah. And Allie's cough is back. I keep imagining that if warm weather ever reaches us, we will all be healthy again.
I should note that I spend approximately 2 hours and 20 minutes commuting each day. About 45 minutes of that is outside, mainly walking. This weather needs to break soon.
I started this post instead of heading off to bed because Rich was cooking dinner. Yes, he cooks for us and for the girls. Not all the time but a lot of the time. I quickly want to post these pictures that I have taken over the past month of the girls' latest activity. I have no idea how or where they came up with it but they take Little People and Disney figurines and place them over pictures in books or magazines. Like they are making it 3D.
I think it is fairly creative of them.
So now I have to talk about this Beauty and the Beast program. My sister-in-law was cleaning out her basement last year (maybe) and gave us this program, which is probably 10 years old, from Beauty and the Beast on ice. Who knew that B & the B would turn into one of the girls' favorite princess stories.
They also like to re-enact the scenes in the program. They have been doing a lot of that lately with books as well. I was Flounder during an Ariel re-enactment last week.
I want to note that the girls were so well behaved this weekend. We went to three different stores Saturday morning and they did so well. They played together all weekend with minimal fighting. There is always some fighting. At one point yesterday, Allie said, "Come on, little sissies, let's play this." (She is the oldest but I don't think she really understands what that means.)
