A Typical Night at the Cozy House

Abby wants a “root beard float.”

Jon is asked to fix something. On tonight’s list: the Kitchen Aid mixer, which was acting completely out of character while making a routine batch of pizza dough. Sigh.


Did you ever think the inside of a Kitchen Aid would be so gunky? I didn’t. Yuckeroo. Just as I was allowing myself to dream of purchasing a Bosch mixer, he declared the KA completely operational. Bummer.

TV viewing includes an assortment of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Planes Fire and Rescue, and a Pumpkin Chunkin competition.

I’m doing a little browsing on eBay. ‘Tis the season. But only browsing because of a self-imposed spending freeze…at which I’m slightly failing, but that’s a story for another day.

Riley is running around full speed ahead…in his big boy undies and my muck boots. Hooray for potty training efforts and no more huge loads of diaper laundry! Hopefully.


We’ve stayed home all.week.long, due to the potty training. It’s been strangely wonderful. I was dreading the thought of being stuck at home and not running to town at least once a day, and of being confined to our house without interaction to the outside world. Really, it’s been pretty fabulous. News flash: it’s harder to leave home with multiple kids daily than it is to just stay home. The moral of this story is, it’s a heck of a lot easier to enjoy your life at home if you actually stay home once in a while.

Cheers to that!!
