So we've had a week of stormy, rainy weather and I'm already feeling (pre-mature) comradery with those in the North Pole.... A few things have contributed to this. Buckets of rain and cold wind, a toddler who is more S.A.D. and cranky than I am, and no car to escape in = a recipe for the blues!
(I apologize to my family in all (cold) parts of the country who are scoffing at my low tolerance for gray skies.)

The major high point in my week was getting the news that my sister and my brother in law want to gift their 2003 Hyundai to us!!! We are just trying to find out the logistics of getting the car here and I'm telling you, this news couldn't have come at a better time. It's going to massively improve our situation!

So, when the sun comes out and I feel like smiling again, probably in a day or so, I'll snap some pretty pictures of the clean, sparkly, smog free world and post them.

(Also, thank you to John and Carol who visited from Ohio and got me and Anders out for a bit today. That was a major boost.)

It amazes me how much the weather can affect someone's mood. I always say the sun makes everything better. This winter has been a rough one for me. Seems to be more bitter than last year, maybe it's because I am older.

Hope the sun is shining for you now and congrats on the car!!!

Here's to sunny days!

Sorry it's been hard for you this week! I can definitely sympathize...winter is always harder for me, and this year especially with all the snow combined with having a newborn whose schedule keeps us at home more than we're used to. I'm eagerly awaiting spring!
