I Like to Think I'm Tough...

Today kicked my butt! Two nights of very little sleep, a 19 lb Sara, and 5 inches of snow made me realize how wimpy I am. It is also making me question our rather large driveway. I believe that getting the snow blower fixed has now moved to the top of my list of things to do. However, Laura sure loved playing on the "mountain" that I made shoveling the drive.
Oh, and isn't the snow beautiful?! If you look closely at the trees you can see the birds. I love having this view out my back. It reminds me of home - where I grew up - with the trees, birds and deer.
To quell Sara's whining I gave her a cookie. She does not like biter cookies or those little puffs, so I gave her a homemade chocolate chip cookie. It kept her happy for a half hour. And then we had to have a bath. One of my favorite thing about being a mommy is introducing my kids to fun and yummy things.

Last night the girls stopped by to remind me that I have a brain and rescue me a bit from my quarantine. It was great to be able to chat with all of them! Thank you, ladies!


  1. I too quickly realize how weak I am when it come to shoveling snow. That stuff gets heavy! The snow is baeutiful buts calls for a lot more work and planning. Gotta love it! :)

  2. Well, I'm always impressed with a mommy who can survive a week without the hubby, and you did a great job. Then you add the no sleeping, and snow shoveling. I have to say I'm impressed.
