Well, it has been months since I posted. I used to be so much better about keeping up with this blog and then, life intervened. Actually, I think I was just tired of hearing myself think. :)
Work is wacko. I'll leave it at that.
Home is buzzing along. We had a snow day today. The kids and Marc were home and we took advantage. After a family shoveling event, we took to the slopes. Well, okay, we took to the small hill next to my house. It was perfect for sledding and we only almost hit the trees once or twice. Maybe more, actually. Despite the small threat of a trunk attack, we had a great time.
The kids were laughing and giggling, which was infectious. I was grinning the entire time we were out. I think it was the most fun I've had in a while and we've been having lots of fun lately. I'm trying to turn over a new page this year. I'm trying to get back my grip on those fleeting moments. It is easy to let things slide by when you are busy with this that and the other.
We've been doing some work in the house. Nearly all of the downstairs has been painted. It will be completed next week. Yay! It is amazing how different it feels now. Yes, even a little bit of paint makes me feel right at home. My sister and Marc installed crown in the dining room, living room and my office. Love it. :) It is so great to have talented family members with amazing hook ups on materials. So fortunate.
Sadly, the house still hasn't sprouted the minions I've been wishing for to clean and cook. I guess I will have to keep wishing. Ahhh...I'm just really starting to care so much less. Choose between-play Operation or mop the kitchen floor. NO BRAINER?! You totally mop the kitchen floor! What?! No, just checking to see if you are still there. We play Operation, which is the current favorite with the kids right now.
Our house has grown a bit, well, we've added members anyway. We have two new frogs, Silvermist and Thomas. They have been hanging out with Clarence since just before Christmas. I love them. They are the best. We have also added our very own wormery. So far things are going along fine. I think they are all still alive. That's good right? We are gearing up for the growing season and my summer plans! Yes, the big grand plan! I'll share later....assuming I can remember.
Tonight, I think I will stalk a bit and hit the hay. There is a two hour delay in the morning and I'm so thankful!
