I am alone in the house for the first time in 8 weeks and 1 day. It is quiet. It is still. It will not last (Steve is picking up Dahlia from Grandma's as we speak).

We tried to go skiing today - it's bloody cold out though. Warm enough this morning (27 degrees) but the arctic air mass moved through and now it's windy and blustery and COLD. Ugh. We got a teensy way onto the trail and turned around - screw that! Instead we hiked in Chester which is much more protected instead. Much better but still cold. Both Steve & I are CRABBY and I think the baby is crabby too. We're going to have Sammy's Pizza for dinner...hopefully that'll ease the crabbiness around this place. I hate being crabby.

Tomorrow Dad arrives - YAY! And next weekend we're journeying to Austin - yay! My Mom has even offered to take Dahlia's overnight shift next Friday - I am already dreaming about dreaming!

oh YUM!!! I love Sammy's pizza! Enjoy the quiet while you've got it and enjoy the heck out of Grandpa's visit too!

You're going to have a great week, sounds like! Glad you and Steve could get out and about. There's always some relief in being outside (whether it's dang cold out or not!)

And how is it that we can never connect in Austin?!? I'm going to an AA retreat this coming weekend and I can't back out - I'm leading several activities. Believe me, if I wasn't leading, I'd drop it in a heartbeat to see you and Steve and Dahlia!

Have a good one! Love you!
