some days you just need to put up a sheet fort and read books, eat snacks* and watch the carebear movie on repeat. these days usually work best when there is rain falling outside and you have an inexplicable slightly runny nose. since there isn’t much else to do you should probably fold laundry (but in no rush, there is nowhere to go anyhow) and do the dishes. but then, back to the fort. in fact, fold said laundry in the fort. don’t do the dishes in the fort, that would be messy and besides the builder didn’t even bother to put a sink in. nope, just a blanket, some pillows and a pile of books. but to be fair one of the books does have a tiny finger puppet in it so the builder wasn’t totally unfit. on these days you should definitely consider wearing only jammies or at the very least cotton clothing with lots of stretch. you know, for all the snacks and the not going anywhere.
* saute some shredded brussel sprouts in a little sesame oil and soy sauce. top with toasted sesame seeds and thank me when you’re done cramming your face full of it.
back to the fort!
