Today marks day four of being ice/snow bound. I did make it out briefly yesterday for a very quick trip to Target. We were out of diapers and since the roads had cleared just enough to be safe if you were very careful I decided to go so I wouldn't have to resort to sticking maxi-pads in the girls training pants to get them through the night. Then this morning when we woke up to five or six inches of snow, I was glad I went out last evening!
The girls weren't too impressed. They said it was cold and they didn't want to go out in it. We spent most of the day doing little projects again. I wanted to start our Valentines but somehow it never happened. There is always tomorrow, since I have a feeling we won't be going anywhere then either.
I think my biggest accomplishment of the day was NOT baking a chocolate cake and therefore NOT eating the entire thing. I think for some reason being stuck inside for four days makes you want to munch all day on chocolate. Since there is very, very, very little chocolate in the house (the girls potty training rewards) it's been pretty easy to not munch on chocolate all day long. But then it dawned on me I did have all the ingredients in the house to make a chocolate cake (cocoa powder!) so then it took will power and great distraction to not bake it. Because I knew if it got baked it SO would have gotten eaten. By me. I might have shared one piece with John and the girls. Here's some photos (okay, a TON of photos) of our day!
