I broke down...

and turned on the heat this morning. I woke up chilly several times in the night, in-spite of my own personal furnace. And sure enough, this morning when I got up out of my chilly bed into the even chillier air, we had our first hard frost.

Today is my 33rd birthday. It's one of those fairly invisible birthdays and I was tempted to just keep it a secret, but like I said, I broke down...

My big plans for the day include trying to just do things that I want to do like mosaic, vacuum and watch some indulgent morning television.

I also broke down and got the kids some clothes yesterday. I had been waiting for my JC Penney gift card to arrive, but it has not (yeah, I know...it's been like two months..it's NOT Ree's fault..she's been super sweet). Vin has grown out of his all of his pants and has been wearing "high waders." Mattie had no winter/warm coat and has been wearing sweaters on these cool mornings. And Charleigh had no long sleeve shirts and about two pairs of pants. They looked so cute and warm this morning.

I'm breaking down in some other ways too, but that's another post for another day.

Keep your feet warm!

After I wrote that comment, I saw all the spelling errors and realized it might appear as if a chimp had taken over my laptop.

ANYWAY.....

Happy Birthday...a day late.

Turn up the heat and start a fire in the fireplace, kick back with a glass of wine and make Robb rub your feet.
You DO have a fireplace, right? If not, start a bonfire with all your bills and junk mail in the front yard.
