Misc. Thoughts and Updates...

I know it’s the cliché statement of 2012, but what is going on with this weather??? We still have not had a snowfall that would make us even contemplate the possibility of shoveling the driveway, and Wednesday of this week (that’s right, February 29th) my car said 69 degrees when I was coming home from work! That night I rushed home and the kids and I spent as long as we could outside playing. And then today, a high of 65 degrees.

People are saying that we’re going to get slammed with a huge snowfall, but at this point, I don’t care…because it’s March, and even if it snows, it will melt quickly and spring is just around the corner, so we see the light at the end of the tunnel. I have learned two things this winter…1.) don’t listen to “predictors;” we were supposed to have this super horrible winter…that’s all I heard last summer and fall, and guess what? WRONG! And 2.) Punxsutawney Phil was wrong! I don’t think we’ve had a day of winter since that little booger told us that we would have six more weeks of it!

Anywhoo, the point of all of this is to say that for this cold-hating girl, this past winter has been an absolute dream! Even more proof that I belong down south!

As for the family, everyone is doing great…the kids are doing fantastic in school and Ryan continues to amaze us with how smart he is. And Colton is growing like a weed and letting us get some sleep :) He sleeps through the night now, but about every couple nights he wakes up and whines and either I’ll just turn on the music (love that I can do that from our end of the monitor) or John will go up and put his paci back in. Even our nightly before-bed nursing sessions are wrapping up…while he likes the comfort of them, he seems to get bored quickly, so I’m not sure how much longer those will continue.

I’m excited for the weekend…it will be cold (crazy weather…65 degrees one day, 50 the next, and then back to 60 degrees) and we have nothing going on. I’m looking forward to getting some stuff done around the house and just relaxing with the kids!
