"Yes, we did produce a near-perfect republic. But will they keep it? Or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom? Material abundance without character is the path of destruction"-Thomas Jefferson

Baby, It's Cold Outside!

Can you say 'brrrrrrrr...........'? This winter has been so fecking (thank you Eileen for that wonderful Irish word!) cold and damp that I'm on the verge of screaming if we don't get some sunshine soon! And I'm not talking about that watered down sunshine that barely filters through the clouds. I'm talking about full on, so bright it makes your eyes hurt, sunshine! Is it spring yet?

Don't get me wrong. I truly enjoy winter. I just like for it to be over a little more quickly than it actually is. I love the cocoa, the warm blankets, curling up with good books. But at this point, I'm just ready for spring! Wildflowers, walks outside, the smell of fresh damp earth, butterflies! And I can tell Reagan is ready too as she stares longingly out the window most days!

Speaking of Reagan, she is already down for her nap..at 7:46 a.m.! That's because she woke up at an unearthly hour this morning. And that means I'm going down for a nap too! Amazingly, for the first year of Reagan's life, I thought naps were a waste of time for me-I had waaaaaaaaaay too much to do.

Now that I'm an exhausted mom of a toddler and after a year of getting less sleep than tortured prisoners, I am a firm believer in good old fashioned naps! And with that, I'm off to curl up in my blankets!

  1. Ahh...there is definitely something to be said for living in the South; although, it didn't get above freezing here today (but tomorrow's high is 58). Sounds like you've got the February blahs, which I believe are pretty standard no matter where you live!

    And about the naps - I never would have survived the first year without them; and now, with a toddler and pregnant, I live for them. :-)
