This is the absolute worst time of year in the Mid-West. You look outside and it seems as if nothing will ever grow & bloom again. Everything feels dirty. Too make things worse our hot tub still isn't fixed! How dependent we've become!
Another thing annoying about this time of year? The people hogging up floor space at my workout class. Yeah, I'm talking to you sweating, annoying lady who walks right across my yoga mats.
I've decided to start eating out of our freezer more & guess what? It's saving us $25-$50 per week! The bad news is that our beef & garden veggies aren't going to last as long as usual. That means we must plant more this spring & 1/4 of a cow just isn't enough for us anymore. It doesn't help that we have no venison in the freezer. Proof that it's not a good idea to let the small ones pass while waiting for a wall trophy. Wall trophies don't feed the family!
This one? She's growing way too fast. I don't mind the messes, honest. I just want to put time in slow motion right now. I love this age. She's starting to talk so much. She has her little sense of humor. What a fun time we're having with our little bug!
The other ones? They are doing well. My big school kids that are gone all day. Hard to believe it but they will soon be six & eight! I realize that the beginning of this post is a bit sarcastic& negative, but really I have so much to be thankful for. I only hope and pray that we will be guided from above as we raise our little family. I'm beginning to realize that it doesn't get easier as time goes on. I'm thankful for friends who have been there, done that. I'm sure I'll be picking your brain as time goes on!
