Sushi and Sleepovers

Munchkin didn’t have a great day yesterday…she was kinda bummed all day over the events of Wednesday. When I picked her up at school, one of her teachers told me that she was kinda quiet all day. Munchkin is NOT someone who is usually referred to as “quiet” or “shy” or “reserved”.

So, I asked her if she wanted to go for dinner to try and cheer her up. And her response was “Can we go out for sushi?” I’m not real sure where that came from… But, the princess gets what the princess wants, so we grabbed Smoking Hot Roommate and headed to Coolidge Corner for sushi at Fugakyu. (Yes, I am pandering to locals…) That seemed to cheer her up a bit. She was back to her super chatty self. [Note: she won’t eat raw fish. This raises the obvious question of “Why did she want sushi?” for which I have no answer…]

Then our hot water heater broke. It stopped working and started leaking, which is really not a good combination for a hot water heater. Since no one could come and replace it last night (it was like 7:30 when we found out) we packed up and had a little sleepover at Big Sis’ house.

Since the Brain Surgeon was out of town, she appreciated the company. Things got a little silly in the end…despite there being seven bedrooms, we all slept in one bed:-P Granted, it is a big bed, but I am sure that Big Sis probably spent some time wondering how she ended up cramped in a little corner of her own bed. I say she is lucky that we weren’t baby sitting Papa Bear’s dog, too;-)

Anyway, I think all of that sufficiently cheered up Munchkin. None of us like to see her sad, especially me…it’s a really terribly, helpless feeling. She was in much better spirits this morning, though.

For the non-locals, it is colder than a motherfucker outside. It is currently 5 degrees outside, and the wind chill is 15 below. It is supposed to be a one day cold snap…back in the 30’s tomorrow…but it is absurdly cold outside right now. Ah well, that is why God invented food delivery;-) This has “Take-out night” written all over it…

And wool coats, scarves, boots, thick socks, toboggans, long johns, hot chocolate, and all of that good stuff too. Oh, one thing that surprised me in Boston was how girls still wore tiny little tops and whatnot in the winter when they're out. Do you guys just get used to it or something?

Seeing a child down is so much different that an adult in the same spirits. Glad Ms. Munchkin is feeling better.

Glad Munchkin is feeling better today. Your sleepover sounds fun. Happy Friday.

Ally - Yeah, that is standard going-out wear...bring a coat but still dress underneath it like it is June.

Brookem - That reminds me that I should start my car and let it run for a while...I haven't driven it in over a week...

k.d. - She is my princess:-) And if I can get it for her, I will!!!

The whole slumber party idea was nice and all, but I think I will be happy to have my bed back to myself. I still wanna know who kept grabbing my boob.

Is it cold outside or is it just you... :P

I won't even jab you with any Florida warmth comments.. but I will tell you that we're having a cold front this week... it was only 68 yesterday.

Sleepovers are fun... as long as they eventually leave.
