I got home last night and burrowed under a blanket in the living room. My office at work gets really cold in this weather unless I blaze the heat in the whole building and that just seems wrong. Owen had requested pancake night for his birthday so after I'd warmed up totally I got that stuff together. The cayenne we bought at Schnuck's didn't seem too spicy. Hmmm....turned out ok though. I actually really like pancake night because all I do is the spicy chicken and then throw it in a warm oven to stay warm. Then I vacate the kitchen and Leo and Ernie make pancakes and Owen or one of them sets the table, gets fruit, syrup, etc. I curl up in the media room with Annie and watch DVR'd episodes of the Chew. I fast forward through any audience game things or craft episodes and so it really is quite delightful.
Owen seemed to have a good birthday so we were all in a happy mood. It was a nice evening. Today, back to school they go....but at least I woke up to a bit of snow.
Such an exciting life I lead!
