Good morning, Saturday.

It's almost 7:30 and it's still dark outside yet I've been awake for over two hours now. Sigh. Terry had to work today so I got up with him and woke Chloƫ to get her ready for hockey. She wasn't feeling well at all and decided to miss today. Funny, though. Now she's behind me playing ball with the dog. No sign of illness at all. Conveniently, it is now too late to get to hockey. Hmmmm. Duped?

Looking at pictures of her in all of her hockey gear makes me so happy for her. And so proud. I think it's amazing that she is getting so many opportunities to explore herself and find the things that move her.

Spring is coming! Right?

Valentines Day is over. Groundhog day was weeks ago. We had a winter thaw last week and had temperatures of 15C. They didn't last though and this morning it was -16C again.

I've dealt with it fairly well this winter. We've been super busy with Chloe having hockey four times a week, both girls in swimming and ballet too. Plus, being forced to go out daily to walk Angus let's me enjoy weather I'd normally hide from. But here is the cold, hard, late February truth; I'm done. There you have it. No sugar coating, no rose colored glasses. I want flip flop weather and I want it now.
