Hello, dear ones. How are you? I am good, just here trying not to double space after periods. :)
I woke up crabby. Or, rather, became crabby as soon as I came downstairs and had 3 little people clamouring for bagels. Back off, children!! Let me have some coffee. geez.
I am better now. I fed them (even though they can all feed themselves. harumph.) and have had the coffee and paid the billz and now I feel better. Sometimes Sundays have so much to do, it's overwhelming. That's what I get for being a slacker all week, though.
Jay's memorial service was last weekend and it was so good to go home and remember him with our family. Everything I write about this just sounds wrong and too little somehow so I don't know what else to say. :( My heart breaks for his family but at the same time I am filled with thankfulness for all of them.
It is suddenly spring in Wisconsin!! It has been so amazing this last week, it's felt so good. Thank God for spring! I was just getting SICK of winter so the timing was kind of perfect this year. :)
I spent yesterday going through some summer clothes. (sorry, I can't stop double spacing after periods.) Spring break is in a couple of weeks and we are taking the kids on a surprise (to them) road trip, our longest ever. We are going back to Tybee Island! Yay! I can't wait. Patrick and I loved it there. I think we were there 14 years ago?? cray. (sorry, I like to say cray. keeps me young.) (or makes me look dumb and old? but who cares when you feel young? ;) )
This has been fun for me to have this secret. I have lists and piles and have been buying random snacks and supplies. I know the trip will be long but I hope it brings us even closer as a family. (snort.) :)
In closing, here are some pictures from one of the best times last winter, sledding at Grandpa's house. Our dad has made these snow slides since we were young. I know I have pics of previous ones somewhere on this here blog...it's a tradition. This year it was particularly epic and all of us got involved and had so much fun. I have more pics on my tablet with James, I will dig those out and add later.
