I put "stacation" in quotes because we hyped up to the boys that we were having a stacation for spring break, but really that was just code for we have no plans and aren't going anywhere. Yea!!!
I had a major bad attitude going into the week. I think our lack of plans and my lack of motivation to make any just had me envisioning days on end of four birds pecking me with an endless repetition of "What can we do now?", "I'm bored.", "I'm hungry.", "What can we do now?" playing on a loop for nine days straight.
But, once I was reminded that it is sort of awesome to sleep in (daylight savings really came in handy here because we completely ignored it and started our days at 8 instead of 7 which was delightful) and curl up with my pups in bed and watch Too Cute or cartoons before starting our day I shifted gears and we had a great week. And it didn't hurt that for most of the week it was beautiful outside!
The absence of liquid starch didn't last too long. Once my alpha boy had seen the possibility of making slim on pinterest there was no turning back. He asked constantly when we were going to "do that experiment"? So I somehow managed to procure the two supplies (equal parts clear glue and liquid starch, add food coloring) and we were all set!
Speaking of brownies ;) we made some.
