Winter in April. Boo!

Hi! I don't have much time to write because today is FREE SATURDAY. That's right folks, the kids are at Grandma and Grandpa's house for a 24+ hr stint! Wahoo! So Patrick and I are spending our Saturday busting out our gigantic to-do lists.. clogged drains, fire detector batteries, shelf installs, garage cleaning, drawer organizing, birthday gift wrapping, etc... And hopefully we won't be too exhausted after all this because tonight we have DINNER RESERVATIONS. Yehaw! A real date night!

We do have a babysitter now & she is great! So we have been going on an occasional date but not enough & usually on a school night. And it's short because we are paying by the hour.

So anyways you have probably heard that Minnesota has been pummeled with snow this week and last week. Last week when it came we thought it was going to be a one-time fluke. We had really nice weather the weekend prior and had just pulled out all of our lawn furniture and started cleaning up the yard. Then we had a big snowstorm. Poor lawn furniture was covered in snow. It was high enough to have to snowblow the driveway. Then it melted. Then we just got pummeled AGAIN. Like at least half of a foot. This morning at 8am it was 18 degrees outside. The high temperature these days is 20 degrees below average. Cy's school had a snowday on Friday. Can you believe it? In the middle of April! It stinks. It's the winter that keeps on giving. The forecast for next week sin't looking promising either...

So, we are still doing our usual WINTER activities still... aquarium, rides, playdates in our playroom, some snow play but we are pretty sick of that (the grown-ups, not the kids!) and we went roller skating which was AWESOME!

We have been entertaining a lot lately which is so fun. Mostly friends with kids. And I am starting to get into cooking! As much as I can for being so busy all the time. I also am starting to get back to exercising, thank God. Pants that fit a month ago barely close so it is about time!!

We are looking at joining a new gym. Our current one doesn't feel that safe. Not a big deal if you are just a grown up who wants to do a quick work out but it is a big deal if you are using their kid care. So we are looking at ones that feel safer, which means of course, they are more expensive too!
