School and Christmas are now behind us, as well as a visit from MIL's great-grandchildren, ages 4, 2 and 1. I used to have the patience of Job, but not anymore. I guess I would make a terrible grandma, as I was exhausted after only an hour with them. The volume got me, for one. When did kids get so loud? I so wanted to sneak into the bedroom with Bud and our dogs to avoid the cacophony.
And of course, they wanted to touch everything, and there is nothing kid-friendly about MIL's house. They managed to get through the visit without getting bit by a dog or breaking something.
We once again played Wii on Christmas day. I would have had more fun if it weren't for my back. It has been giving me fits for about three weeks. My weight isn't helping matters much. I need to kick it into high gear and GET THIS WEIGHT OFF!!!! I have zero will power during the holidays. This Christmas there were no green vegetables in sight, I swear. Just lots of carbs and starches.
I put in several job applications. We are in need of some cash flow, and I know that since I am now a graduate, MIL will be asking me when I am getting a job. I want to beat her to the punch!
I really want to hibernate, and it really isn't that bad out. No snow, so that is a huge plus. Maybe we can get through this winter with minimal snow. If we have blue skies, that is always a bonus. The overcast days really depress the hell out of me. The sunshine really helps.
MIL is slamming shit around right now, so I guess she is pissed about something. Guess I better get off of here!
