What we do when the cat's away

You don't want to know how much of a Homer Simpson I turn into when Kulani is away. I am a zombie. Here are some pictures of our activities:

The girls having a teddy bear picnic in the spare bedroom upstairs. It was rainy yesterday and today, so we had to entertain ourselves indoors.

Lilia mixing up some fruit salad, yummy, yummy.

Nohea sportin' the Racer's colors via a blue bowl full of oranges.

The real story: So since Kulani is gone, I am able to relax and read a good book. This one happens to be the newest Stephenie Meyer book, The Host. So I try to distract the girls, so I can selfishly read and forget about the mess that is my home. And since Kulani isn't around, why bother cleaning when I can read?! So I made a nice, huge, healthy bowl of watermelon, which the girls ate from all day. Then I made a quick lunch of ramen. And we ate dinner at the girls' favorite: McDonald's! Luckily I wasn't reading Fast Food Nation. I think I'll stay blissfully ignorant from reading that book.

I'm so glad to hear that other moms give up on cleaning while the hubby's away...but then...I don't do as much of it as I should while he's here either.

Hmmm...well, I don't clean when Mark is out of town either--but at least you are stimulating your mind. When Mark is gone I generally watch a lot of lame t.v. and catch up on my celebrity gossip. Good for you!

Ah yeah, where would we be without lame TV and celebrity gossip? A girl after my own heart.

You are so darling! That looks like fun.

Will you let me know how that book is? Janessa wants to read it, but I want to make sure it is good. She loved all the Twilight ones, but I heard this one was more adult. I actually HATED Twilight (start throwing the stones), so I don't want to read the new one. I will count on others like you to approve it for Janessa!
