Outside My Window: The snow has been falling all night and all day – resulting in our first actual snow day of the year. Last week we had a “the roads are, like, icy” day which isn’t really as fun. I’m Hearing: My daughter watching The Jetsons Movie (streaming on Netflix) while the dog barks at all the people out snow blowing their driveways. My ten year … Continue reading Today.

Is anyone else just exhausted with the world right now?

My in laws came into town to celebrate the holidays with us and now there is almost too much to share.
