You have a three-day weekend coming up. You are SO looking forward to some down time, some family time, some friends time… and what happens? You get sick. That’s right. Sick. Saturday. Satur-freakin-day.
Luckily – I went to the brand spankin’ new Archivers on *Friday* – when I was still feeling somewhat well. (well enough, anyway) I mean, that was a close one!
You know what else we did on Friday? We picked up a couple of Webkinz for the kids. No, not for us. They’re for the kids. (remind me of that when I decide it’s a good idea to stay up until midnight playing games on the damn site)
So instead of doing something super-fun this weekend or being outdoors… the family stayed inside (barely getting dressed) and alternated time on the computer obsessed with their fake-animated-computer-generated pets with their fake-animated-computer-generated outdoor spaces.
Not me, of course… I was busy napping, being headache afflicted and fondling some awesome felt trim picked up on my aforementioned trip to Archivers. Besides, those naps helped keep me awake so I could play, um, I mean, make sure the site was worthy of my precious children, after they went to bed.
I’m a good parent after-all.
So when you see my children on the street… you’ll be able to recognize them from their pale skin and aversion to sunlight.
