'oh, the weather outside is frightful...'

just in case we get snowed in for days, i made a wal-mart run earlier this evening. at the time it was only 42 and raining. felt pretty dang cold compared to the 80 degrees it was earlier today. but it's even colder now, and it's still dropping.

i have firewood, jugs of water, plenty of food and paint for the baby's room. hey, we gotta have something to do if we're locked in here.

the plan for a fire, christmas carols and tree decorating tomorrow evening is still on.

i'm trying desperately to get things put up and organized before friday evening when delana and kylah are due. it's hard when a two-hour project wears me out enough to be ready for a full eight hours of sleep. you know, because i have about 50 two-hour projects. if i keep up this one-a-day pace, it's going to take me until after ellie is born to finish.

i made landon sausage, egg and cheese sandwiches for dinner. you would've thought i took him to a steak dinner at bob's or something the way he was raving. men are so easy to please. it's just that the things that please them are the things we don't really wanna do. cook. clean. laundry. seriously, landon is endlessly happy with dinner, clean underwear and towels and an uncluttered living room. easy enough, huh? yeah...

anyway. yeah. so we're ready for the snow. bring it on. i'm bundled up and waiting. only draw back is doc all but refuses to poop when it's anything but sunny and 75 out.

I have the most beautifully, talented daughter-in-law who writes such amazingly, meaningful words that bring tears to your eyes and a lump in your throat and leaves you feeling all...squishy inside! That's what I tell anyone who will listen. Bet you didn't know that, did ya. I am so very proud of her and I love her so...
