I am SO Cold

I knew that winter was coming. We had a couple of brief sightings in November and December - but they were quickly forgotten with numerous days of above average temperatures. You had to look in cool, shady places for find evidence of snow.

BUT to have the temperature drop over 22 degrees in less than 24 hours is a bit ridiculous. We skipped over winter and fell into a bitterly frozen hell that is hard to comprehend.

This morning the temperature was -30 with a wind chill of -38.


That is minus 36 F

I don't need a snow day. I need a "it's too cold to go outside without freezing my skin off" day.

Thank goodness for long underwear, hot coffee, the block heater in my car, and fuzzy socks.

12th day of 2012

Well I made it trough another crazy holiday season and now it is 2012.

There was a lot of travel (driving to and from Edmonton, flying to and from Vancouver), and good food, and time with family, and parties, and good friends.

Of course, yet again, I never got the whole house decorated for Christmas - and I admit that there are still too many decorations up (little do they know that they will all be placed back in the crawl space by the end of this weekend).

2011 was a great year - even if I ended it with more weight on my body and no pregnancy. It also had some challenges with finances but we are working on improving how we budget our time and money.
