I allowed myself to use most of my child-free time today to paint, so I scattered supplies all around the living room and wrapped up one painting while starting two new ones. I also figured it would be a good time to watch all 208 minutes of The Fellowship of the Ring Extended Edition, since everyone else in my house either a) hates it or b) is too young to watch it.

Next week: The Two Towers! You’re gonna have to toss me!
