It was so fracking cold today. My kids have bad colds and haven’t been sleeping. I’m the kind of tired that comes with a pre-cold. Instead of taking the kids to swim lessons and a class at the zoo I opted to stay home today. We watched too much TV (mostly Jim Zim’s model trains or Japanese train unboxing videos. Oh how I wish I were joking). Luckily I was able to get out of the house tonight.
Today is Galentine’s Day, a holiday created by one of my favorite fictional TV characters of all time, Leslie Knope. One of our local theaters had a celebration, and I went with my friend/cousin Deirdre.
We were handed a glass of champagne on our way into view Steel Magnolias. I laughed. I donkey cried. I wore knitwear. I had a wonderful time.
I hope you had a great Galentine’s Day. If you weren’t able to get out to a movie with a friend, I hope you were at least able to enjoy a waffle. If you are not a Parks & Rec fan you are really going to question this entire paragraph.
