It's so cold
It's cold, cold. 13 degrees out right now, with wind chills as low as -20. It's been like this all day Sunday. Very windy and very cold. At this point in the winter no one, absolutely no one, wants to be outside. If it were December and snowing, we'd be out frolicking in our snowsuits and boots, but at this point all anyone can think about is getting past the cold. Of course, this means that for a weekend day we were holed up in the house. Freak out! in a multitude of ways. The basement became littered with styrofoam and cardboard. The little legos (the little ones meant for school age kids) were repeatedly pored over heads like water. Chairs were fallen off of, tables were banged into with limbs and noses, and heavy toys were sent airborne, spinning past little heads. Finally, it was birthday party time (at a local children's museum) this afternoon, and everyone had a relatively good time. Meanwhile, Daddy cleaned the house, mom cleared her head a little bit, and BB felt a little love from old friends. Now the laundry is done, sheets are clean, and the bathtub doesn't sport dirty paw prints anymore. It will be Monday morning soon. We can't wait until spring.
