It's a record. It's DECEMBER 11 and my heat has just been turned on. Yeah, it may be early for some of you down here in the "warm country," but I couldn't handle it any longer. As I drove to preschool this morning, Dutch told me it was 47 degrees outside. I was proud I had waited so long to get the heat moving in my house! Even now I'm resisting the urge to go prepare some hot cocoa. This may sound very pathetic to all of you who are actually experiencing winter, but I'll admit I've gone soft. A week in McCall is going to take lots and lots of layers to keep me warm. Today all of my children have long pants on and 2 of the 3 know what socks are. I have got to find some long underwear if skiing is going to happen over Christmas! Today I'm grateful I'm not homeless, because let's just be honest, I'd simply die out there.
