Cabin Fever is alive and flourishing in the Thompson home. The snow is pretty, but getting tiresome. Holiday stuff is basically done, so we are hanging out. Together. A lot of the time. MUCH of the time. Here are some family quotes to describe the level of being snowbound:
"Whatcha doin'? Why are you doing that? When will you be done? Can we play a game? Can we have cocoa? What time are we going out in the snow? Can I just follow you around?"
--rapidly spoken by 7-year-old Thompson Daughter
"It's too cold for Mommy to go out in the snow anymore. Tell Daddy to break out the Kahulua."
--Kim Thompson, snow wimp
"Now this, THIS reminds me of childhood. This is a Spokane Christmas!"
--Thompson Husband, former Spokane Native (as we are reminded regularly), Drives in Snow
And the best for last. From the lips of the very bored, 10 year old Thompson son:
"Do you know anyone who doesn't like to poop, blink, or breathe?"
God help us. Each and every one of us.
