Yay! It's Monday!

Did I happen to mention that it is 30 below zero C? And blowing snow. It is darn cold. I would definitely have to say that March has come in like a lion. I spent two days last week without a vehicle, as it was so cold my battery died and I couldn't start my car until Grandpa D came to my rescue.

Anyhoo, I am feeling much better today. I had a nice long chat with my sister last night. We haven't talked in ages, we have let our busy lives get in the way, I guess. She is an amazing Mary Kay consultant and had just finished a seminar weekend. She was setting new goals and making plans, very exciting. I am really proud of her for making such a success of her business. Her passion for her company and for women is totally inspiring.

Today is clean up my house day (mostly? folding laundry and scrubbing bathrooms day. Every day is scrubbing bathrooms day, my boys are gross) My girlfriend called and then came to pick up my preschoolers for the morning. Isn't that sweet? Another friend is coming for coffee tomorrow morning and then two of my sisters will be here. And my Dad! The rest of the week is adequately full as well. And when I am busy, I am much less lonely for my hubby. I still miss him terribly, but distraction is good.

I hope you guys have an amazing week, I look forward to chatting with you as the week progresses.

  1. I'm glad you're feeling happier, and I hope that the weather will warm up there and here. It was a warm (though torrentially rainy!) weekend, and I had hopes for spring until I woke up this morning to more snow. I'm so done with snow.

    Hugs! I agree, busy is good. My best girlfriend called this morning and invited me to lunch tomorrow, she's taking the day off for 2 doctor appointments with 4 hours in between and I'm going to take Bad to the sitter and we're going to eat and chat and shop. Without children. Bliss. My mood improved immediately.

  4. I hate cleaning the bathroom! I think that guys in the house should have to do it, because they make most of the mess. lol! Like that would ever happen.

  5. Well- something just happened mid-comment and it disappeared. so if you get two- sorry bout that.

    I was just saying how you sound quite chipper today- glad you seem to be feeling better.

    I keep clorox wipes handy and wipe down the toilets on a regular basis- then I dont have to work so hard at keeping them clean
