This morning, at work, I saw a mouse. Twice. It peaked out under the cooler, I screamed, it ran away. It peaked out a little bit later. I screamed. He (or she) looked right at me, time slowed down and we stared into each others eyes. And then it ran away. Again. I am telling you, that mouse had cartoon eyes.
The boys went night skiing. I opted to stay home and do glamorous mom stuff like go to the grocery store and meal prep for this sugar detox. And have the house to myself.
At the grocery, I chatted with a nice, older gentleman in line. I just love talking to people in the check out line. I don’t know why, I just love it.
I found candy hearts in the Valentine’s Day section of the store. It was the traditional little box that was around when I was a kid. Of course I had to buy one! I can leave little messages to my boys in their rooms and lunch boxes! And they can roll their eyes.
I opened the box at home and this is what I saw.
