I need a vacation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have I mentioned that February is the longest month?? It may only have 28 days, but that is God's grace to us. Even 28 days seems like 57!! It is too cold to do much, too snowy to do anything, and its been too long since we could do anything. It is simply a tough month to get through. The winter always seems to sink in in February. And I am ready for warm weather!!! I am ready to go somewhere without 45 minutes of dressing and searching for hats and gloves, ready to let my children out in the yard to run off some steam without said 45 minutes of dressing and searching, and darn it ready to wear flip-flops!!

Anyhow, enough of that. Today my kitchen window go broken. I won't even go into how that happened, but as you can imagine I am not a happy mommy today! My kitchen is cold and I have had to remove tiny, minuscule pieces of glass out of 3 different feet already today. I swept and vacuumed, but there are still renegade pieces remaining. SO I have cried, been on my knees, and have decided to get myself off the floor, pull up my maternity pants that fall down every 4 seconds, and move about my day with a smile on my face. Forced as it is, I am trying to avoid doing some sort of permanent psychological damage to my children who are home for like the 15th day this month!! Plus today is Brandons 2nd birthday and I really try not to be a royal crab on birthdays. So party on we will.

I apologize for this most NOT uplifting blog. I would post a picture of my puffy-eyed, not happy but smiling face but I still cannot post pictures so a word picture will have to do. Till tomorrow.

Hi Candi--Am having a look at your gorgeous boys!! SO cute! It is funny how different they look from each other: one looks like you,one looks like Jason. Really love seeing the photos!
Love you!

I am so in the same boat!! I HATE WINTER!!!! I need to let my kids out too, and I can't wait for the day to send them in the backyard! I was starting to feel like I am the worst mom ever, because we are so bored staying inside, and I can only do so many crafts!!
I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling this way!! Good Luck!

Winter stinks with 3 kids. You have 5 and you are pregnant - so I feel very sorry for you. Why don't you wear your flip flops today? You're the boss, aren't you??? I think I'm going to put mine on. I'm crabby today. It might help me too. Yes, I'm going to put them on. The metallic silvery ones.

Why don't you wear your flipflops? Dana wears them all winter long!! I had a rough day Monday as well, I bet my face was puffier than yours! :)
