And so are my children. I'm just tired and I put my back out canning 100LBS OF TOMATOES over the weekend, plus cutting up and freezing 22lbs of red peppers, and I'm tired. Didn't I mention tired? I should have. We're still puttering around having trips and haircuts and crises because the juice is the wrong shape and there are twin toddlers.
I refuse to do a practical craft on mummifying ANYTHINGi, no matter how educational it is to do it. Ick. I will let the kids examine bug larvae and do cuneiform on playdough and watch videos about Hindu gods, but I am not mummifying anything.
