My goodness, where does the time go? I hate it when I don't post very often. I know, you all hate it too. :)
My husband was here at home for 2 weeks. We both survived it. :) He needed to take the vacation time from work - a use it or lose it thing. We enjoyed the time very much.
We watched quite a few movies, played some card games, and even had a date one night. Our
New Year's Eve was quiet. We ordered take-out, built a fire, played a game and watched a movie.
Alan did some projects while he was home. I appreciated that so much. He installed a new sink and faucet in the laundry room. (The old one left a lot to be desired.) The new one looks great.
We rearranged furniture in our family room, moving a couple of large pieces to our living room/dining room. The fish tank got a new home in our front room. It's a 29 gallon and a heavy
thing to move. It took both Alan and Bryan to carry it. So the fish have a new location and new tank mates as well. We bought them 4 new pals on New Year's Day.
Fish with their new tank mates. New friends are at the top. :) They are GlowFish which Jadyn had been asking for.
It's been ridiculously cold here in Minnesota. This is our 10th winter here. It always seems like a novelty at the beginning of the coldest part of winter. We marvel at how cold it gets. I heard that
it reached about 16 or 17 below zero a couple of nights ago. Craziness!
The kids went back to school today, and Alan went back to work. It felt good to get out and run some errands. I do love to check things off my to-do list.
There's no business like snow business!
The best part of playing in the snow is warming up afterward, with hot chocolate in your cup.
Kitty demands equal time on the blog. Look at those eyes....would you want to mess with her?
