It’s official

I’m done with winter. I thought I was doing so well. I was appreciating the semi-warm (above freezing) days and trying to be outside as much as possible. I kept my eyes on the hope of spring. And then January just kept stretching on and on on. And slowly, the winter doldrums caught up with me and tackled me to the ground. I almost went crazy last night. The walls of my house were closing in, slowly suffocating me. I gasped for air. And then I pledged to stay out of my house as much as possible this week. So we’ll see how that goes. Not completely sure where I’ll be or what I’ll do but I hope to leave this viewpoint.

At least tomorrow’s February.

About A Story of Us

My grandparents 57th wedding anniversary and my first wedding anniversary motivated to journal the adventures life brought our way . I hope to amuse the friends and family I have all over the country and, when I am my grandmothers age, look back at what I have written and chuckle. It's been four years since I began and the snickers I bring myself as I look back propel me to write on. Cheers to the future and happy memories of the past.

    Here is a little video that the kids like to watch, reminded me of you. I’ve grown up with these winters but still have a hard time dealing with them! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDWcywiGsJ4

    You’re going to CA? I’m coming with you. I’m done with winter, too; I could stand the beach for my back yard right about now. Would your family mind a tag-along?

    So sorry for you yucky weather. I think I would go a bit crazy myself. The weather is nice at the Ranch today but I’m sure the really extra nice weather is waiting for your arrival.

    Kels, pretty sure you spoke the mind of many!! Its like this for me… four reminders running around you every moment singing..er screaming uh… chanting loudly ever so loudly their desire to be outdoors in warm weather. ” Mom, I wish we had a pool!, I wish it were warm…, I want to ride my bike, mom..,”. Brooks says, “Carson let’s pray tomorrow will be warm”. Carson says ” I dont think I remember what it was like to sweat”. On and On they remind me of their (and my ) GREAT desire for warmth!!
    I’m trying to be happy for you and your trip, but truth is I am very jealous!
    no really glad ya’ll can go! Just watch ..winter will be over before we know it!
