A quick Debriefing on winter

First off…I am one proud owner of a NEW phone. Who ever said my kids have super “wearing” down power…now know where it comes from. I was an endless in my pursuit. So because of this, there is no doubt there will be a new model out in two days….

This winter has been dragging on and on…and I do not know about your house…but I am over it. I am sooo over it and this:

Sick Bay

And NOW, we are doing faces like below all because we do not want to get dressed in a thousand layers…Can’t say I blame them (the kids, you should see Joe’s face that is a way different story, and I have a harder time forgiving that one)

I am sick of all these layers

But when you tell them we are planning a vacation you might get a face like this:

a little weirdo happy to see the sun - someday

But mostly we are bored  – so bored we are doing these types of things to OURSELVES (yes to himself…how? I don’t bother with such silly questions):

Could I be more bored?

This is the SAME child that actually likes to be outside. This is also the same child you can’t trust if you can’t see…This is the same child that instead of actually listening to you decides to sing louder…AH, he is a real joy.

This looks innocent...but notice the bird feeder

And when you turn your back the youngest of my little human collection has learned to climb – I mean CLIMB. We have yet to get in the 127 hours scenario, but – it could happen.  All the way up the cabinets and get things he is not supposed to, and then give you little sweet faces of – “I have nothing in my mouth..”.Winter is killing us in the unwanted skill department:

There is nothing here...Look away

Then again there are a few in the house that seem to be in their own worlds still. My Prom Queen and Derby Boy.

I love a Crown

had to show she did not want to dress either but loves the crown!

Derby Boy


The last thing I want to mention is ME: Well, it has been rough sitting indoor thinking of my mom. It has been rough with no sunshine to speak of. It has been rough because I am constantly cold and HATE being cold.  And we won’t even begin to mention what it is like to be trapped in such a LoUd environment daily– but what I will mention is that the other day when I was stuffing my dresser (notice: I did not saying folding clothes nicely. Something that my mother would have killed me for, since she had everything color coded. That in my case, would be color coding by STAIN colors which another side note I think that I got from her dad (papa)…enough on that) I could not get the drawer SHUT. NOT super unusual but finally (after trying more than once) I took the drawer out and found something that really brought a smile & a tear to me…it was a stack of photos of my MOM. They were of all different time periods, and how they got there I have no idea. Especially since they were from 7 years ago and then just last summer. No Clue, none, but – I will take it as a sign…a sign that Spring is coming and she is still on my shoulder.

More than 7 years ago...but remember it like yesterday. Ah the warmth - from love and Summer

    Loved reading your blog and seeing pictures of the kids. Scrolling down further………. and seeing the picture of you and your mom made my eyes water again, but I loved it!
    You so remind me of her.
    Enjoy your trip to Naples.
