* I'm way behind on things around here. I have a bunch of posts started that I just haven't made time to finish and post. I want to get caught up . . . we'll see if it happens. :) Meanwhile, please forgive me that all my new posts were actually written 6 weeks ago!
Night time (and some day time) temperatures are in the single digits (F).
Snow boots are required every time I step out to get the mail.
My skin most closely resembles the color of Elmer's School Glue.
The girls and I are mildly cranky as our Vitamin D stores are quickly depleting.
My sleepwear currently consists of oh-so-sexy flannel pajama pants, a long sleeve t-shirt, and socks.
Lilian has a passport. And a Brasilian Visa.
I have a whole bunch of frequent flyer miles.
Eric needs to go down to Brasil for a couple weeks with work.
It's warm there. And sunny.
There is talk of a giant blizzard heading towards Iowa.
Eric recognizes that leaving me behind with two babies in a blizzard while he is in the tropics would be a bad idea. Very bad idea.
So tomorrow, we're going to Brasil! YAY!
We'll be in Belo Horizonte January 30-February 11 and then tack on a personal trip to Rio de Janeiro for a long weekend with friends there February 11-14. Next year, he's going to have a hard time topping Valentine's Day in Rio. :)
