Time to up the Vitamin D intake

We are on Day 2 of no sunshine, and I am feeling it. My Vitamin D levels are dropping and I am sleepy! I could close my eyes and fall asleep, even with kids running around me.  So, like every winter it is time for me to up my Vitamin D intake. Hopefully I can get it under control this year, without having to do my normal winter Prescription that my Doctor has to write out.

Day 2 of no sunshine also makes your kids CRAZY... Or at least it makes my kids crazy. I mean we are talking about a level of crazy that cookies and ice cream doesn't even make better. Yesterday we did a bunch of their 'favorite' activities, to still end up with melt downs left and right. I promised them baking cookies, and playing in the snow today. Both activities are quite a lot of work for me so I am keeping my fingers crossed for a nice afternoon. As any mom would know, there is nothing worse than doing an activity with a child, and having the child be grumpy the entire time.

I know I am not the only one dealing with this cabin fever crazy. How do you combat cabin fever? Any ideas for making the kids happy? If I did not have kids, I would be curled up on the sofa, reading a book, and drinking Trader Joes sipping chocolate. But I do have kids which means maybe making a cup of tea, that I will have to place in the microwave at least 10 times. I don't remember when the last time was that I was able to enjoy a hot drink in one sitting. Let alone curl up on the sofa and dive into a book. Oh well, I wouldn't have it any other way. Crazy kids and all!
