“A good deed is like peeing in your pants. Everyone knows you did it, but only you can feel it's warmth.”

i've been sick for the past 3 days with 100.6 temp and am finally get back to feeling ok.
not sure what was going on with my body but it hurt. so sorry for the lack of posting.

it was my first day back to work the other day after using two sick days, and it snowed again most the day.
so arriving home i see my children playing video games
i come in and point out that our driveway still has snow on it that they could have been shoveling instead of playing around. (mean mom, i know)
i tell them to shut off the game and get there winter gear on so they can go shovel their
great-grandmothers walks.
brady says" are we getting paid"
i say "no you doing a "good deed" for someone who is in need. without payment. without trying to be noticed. i'm trying to teach my kids. i really am. but some days they're just not working with ya
 (if you know what  i mean)
but they did it and IT DIDN'T EVEN KILL THEM!
i told them they'd be fine.

p.s. when i took this picture. when they got back from great-grandmas, brady stated to me that this was his "signature pose" so you may be seeing more of it.
