I’m tired. I’m REALLY tired. And I’m REALLY sick of winter – those winter blues are setting in hard core. I don’t think the temperature has been above 0 for a few weeks now here in Iowa.
Craig is exhausted, today he had to fix a broken busted pipe at the farm – he had to lay on the ground and fix it while water was still spraying with wind chills around -30 F – by the time he was done his coat had frozen to the ground.
The boys have hard core cabin fever and I can’t wait to kick them outside this Summer. Things have honestly just been tense in the house because we are all itching to get OUT OF THE HOUSE! We were going to go roller skating today but honestly it’s just so much work when it is this damn cold. Carver doesn’t have school tomorrow, I was going to take him to the fitness center and the pool but man. It. Is. Just. So. Dang. Cold.
Craig and I are laying on the couch here chatting – even if it warmed up to above 0 maybe we could even just go sledding for a bit. HOPEFULLY by Wednesday I think it is supposed to warm up. The more we spend time outside in the Summer like mountain biking or roller skating or going on walks or to the pool the harder it is in the winter when we are stuck inside.
Please keep in mind as well, while we are following out own precautions, we have all already had COVID, I’m fully vaccinated, and Iowa has completely lifted all restrictions.
Gannon is doing better – we had his follow up x-ray and he is CLEANED OUT! Check out the difference!
We used several enemas which was actually super easy – I’m not afraid to use those again. They were really effective and pretty painless.
When we were at the doctor Gannon was playing excavator ??
On a lighter note, just a friendly reminder that I don’t choose the ads that pop up on my website – I saw this come up the other day on my site ???
Anyway, thanks for reading, hopefully we can shake these winter blues. I hope you all had a wonderful Valentines day! We stopped and brought my mom a few truffles (she loves truffles) for Valentines day!
