Flying Solo–Four Days, Two Children, One Dad

Denisa’s off in Bangor for the next four days, leaving me here with the kidlets while she helps run youth conference (a church activity for kids 14-18). Not that I’m complaining. I’d much rather be the one here with the 2 kids than the one there were the 100. 🙂

So what’s up on the agenda for me and TRC and DC? Today we might take an exhilarating trip to the dump to drop off some garbage. We might follow that with a rousing house cleaning, and perhaps a jaunt to the grocery store. Rumor has it there’s still some discounted Easter candy, and that’s exactly the sort of rumor that needs to be explored.

In the meantime, I’m crouched in front of my computer, trying my darndest to figure out what makes my new narrator tick. It’s driving me more than a little batty. Good thing I’m off to the circus tomorrow with the kids. That should distract me much better than all the cleaning that’s on the docket today.

The glamorous life of an author, folks. Living the dream.

In other news, I have to make dinner for the next four days. And I can’t just have cereal (which is what I would have if I were just by myself). For some reason, Denisa seems to think cereal and milk isn’t “nutritious”–whatever that means. And I do agree that feeding the kids nothing but cereal for four days straight probably isn’t the best choice I could make.

Which leads me to look over the other arrows in my quiver. Mac and cheese? I already tried SpaghettiO’s on them the other month, and neither of them liked it. Maybe tuna sandwiches? I also make a mean batch of pancakes.

Let’s face it. Cereal might be one of the most nutritious options available to me. 🙂

Wish me luck!

    I’ve been babysitting my marvelous granddaughter lately (now 17 months old) and it’s quite a challenge keeping up with her. But oh, so fun.

    P.S., I’m really loving VODNIK.
