Munchkins bundled up and playing outside - check. Apron on - check. Now, what the heck should I make for supper tonight? Salmon patties? Barf. Tacos? Shit, no lettuce. Soup? Too much chopping. Hmm. I'll bet checking out Facebook for a while would help. Hello, glass of wine, shall we update our status?
"Mom, we're freezing. Can we come in now?"
"Absolutely! Hey, get your damn snowy boots off the floor."
"Sorry! What's for supper?"
"Oooh, it's the house special tonight, kids! Bowl of Raisin Bran! Suuuuper exciting! "
"Moooommm, that's all you made? We were playing outside for, like, an hour."
"Actually, it was an hour and a half. But for your ungrateful little palate I've also created the delectable side dishes of Kick in the Ass and Go to Your Room. Would you care to partake, Your Highness?"
Grumble, grumble. "No."
"Sorry, what was that?"
"Thanks, Mom, I love Raisin Bran!"
"That's the spirit, dear. If you eat all your supper you can have a bowl of Mini Wheats for dessert."
Now, back to kicking some Wordscraper ass...
