So much for trying to be better at updating here. Well, it’s now February. I’ve completely missed an entire month of the year – not quite sure where it disappeared to though. Between recovering from the holidays, trying to get to work between snowstorms, and struggling to stay warm without spending a fortune on heating bills, the entire month just kind of snuck past me.
Here’s a quick recap of what has occurred since I last posted:
- I managed to finish all of my quilt orders and gifts with a couple of days to spare before Christmas. Everyone seemed thrilled with my work – especially my brother and his wife.
- Chad and I spent several days at my parents’ house celebrating Christmas, Dad’s birthday, and new babies (my cousin’s). We had a delightful time and throughly enjoyed the time away from home and work.
- We also celebrated Christmas with Chad’s family.
- Spent New Year’s Eve at home and asleep before midnight.
January was a mass of snowstorms – one of which kept me from getting home one night after work. We had a lot of wind with the snow and it just wasn’t safe to travel. So I spent the night with one of my co-workers. Cold weather was also a challenge last month. We had a lot of days where the temperature didn’t get above single digit numbers. Combine that with the snow that we had on the ground and it’s been a long, miserable winter so far. Chad’s pool league started up right after the first of the year so we’ve been spending one night a week in the bar for that. Thankfully this is the last week of the regular season – only two more weeks to go!
That should just about bring this back up to date. Hopefully I’ll do a better job of keeping up from now on!
