Today was -- and continues to be -- the perfect, lazy day.
We went to the local outside ice rink / sledding hill and I got to watch Husband play some ice hockey and spend time with other friends/parents while our kids hiked up and down the hill for an hour and a half.
Back at home, all snuggled up on the couch, we watched some episodes of Dog, had leftover chicken and waffles and napped. Upon waking, I ate whoopie pies and drank some beer while watching Cinema Paradiso. A year ago, my son wouldn't have been able to read the subtitles.

The house is clean, I'm knitting, the kids are 'making' dinner (I think they're just warming up the chicken and waffles)* and we're going to watch some old horror movies until it's time for bed.
We may enjoy some port, too.
Keeping a family is a lot of work, especially on the weekends. Having a break like this together -- and really enjoying a day of relaxing nothingness -- is absolutely amazing.
Just as I was about to post this, the kids brought out our 'appetizers' -- dry toast speared with a lit birthday candle and covered with partially boiled (mostly raw, actually) potatoes. Suddenly, the remainder of this lovely day seems questionable...
