Groundhog Day

I got up this morning and saw that Punxsutawney Phil had not seen his shadow and that Spring will come early this year.  ROFLMBO!!! Oh, if were only true!!!  I can't imagine winter giving up it's nasty hold on the northern (and not so northern states) anytime soon, can you???  We're supposed to get our share of that nasty huge storm but it won't be anything compared to what the rest of the US has seen.  You see, it's 68 degrees and it's supposed to make it to 78 today.  So, we'll get some rain, maybe a lot and some wind, again, maybe a lot but we wont' have to deal with the frigid temps or the nasty white stuff.  We won't even go there about the ice that you all are dealing with right now.  I wish that I owned a huge resort and could have all my friends from up north come down to Florida for the winter.  It does sometimes get cold here, 30's during the day but it never lasts for more than a few days and we never have snow.  Sigh* 

No stitching going on here.  I wish I could blame it on the new morning/afternoon routine and the work routine but that's not it.  No, I'm not in another stitching slump either.  I'd like nothing more than to sit this afternoon and stitch until my butt goes numb. lol  I have to wait on my new glasses.  They probably won't be in until sometime next week.  Argh!  I did try to stitch using my reading glasses but even with the light directly on my material, I still had issues.  The frogs that came to visit were because I couldn't see well enough to count. Well duh!!!  You'd think I would have picked up on that wouldn't you??  Nope!  I just thought I was tired and would make my eyes work themselves out of that but.....when does that ever work?? lol  Maybe I can find a small project and my stronger reading glasses and attempt a little stitching today.  I'm having withdrawals!

Have you ever had a conversation with a four year old that leaves you wondering if you've lost brain cells??  Ryan is my little angel and he is more advanced than some of the kids his age.  They adore him in his VPK class and ask him to be the leader when doing the ABC's and reading and anything else.  He's that good!  He's also the one that asks you twenty million questions and no I'm not kidding.  I love it when I finally figure out that he's already asked the question before but then comes back ten minutes later and asks me again.  Are you trying to trick me Ryan? lol   He starts with something cute and ends up asking me some of tough ones.  I find myself totally speechless most days with the way his mind works (not to mention with the staggering amount of questions lol) 

Mommy, is the sky blue?  Why is it blue? When you die, do you go to heaven?  Does your body go to heaven?  What's your spirit?  Why does it go to heaven without your body? Where is heaven?  Is it above the clouds?  Is it above the stars?  How far is it?  Why is it so far away?  Can we go there to visit?  Why not??  When you die, can you come back to life?  Why not?  That's just a small sample of his questions, and yes I'm answering him as we go along and he just keeps on going and going and going.  When I'm too slow in answering him (because this tired old brain is still trying to figure out the question before last) he gets mad!  ARE YOU LISTENING TO ME?  WHY WON'T YOU ANSWER ME?  He also gets mad if someone isn't paying attention to him and someone else answers the question.  I usually try to answer questions for Daddy if he's distracted and boy, does that tick Ryan off! lol   I WASN'T TALKING TO YOU MOMMY!  I WAS TALKING TO MY DADDY!!!!  I love that little boy! lol

Hey. Sounds like you have lots going on. 68 degrees? What is that? Must be nice. Hope the weather didn't get too bad for you. Can totally relate to the very last part of your post. Matthew does not like it when I answer for Daddy either. Don't worry about your glasses. They will be just fine. Can't wait for spring break. With any luck we will be heading for sunnier pastures. Take care.

Hi Terri, I sent you an e-mail about the kits but it was kicked back for some reason,so...I am not asking any $$ for them. I just need your mailing address and I will get them out to you as soon as possible.
