It's gone -

but not forgotten. The Snow. The piles and piles and PILES of snow that we came to loathe.

For those of you that know me, you know how much I *LOVE* the flurries, the smell, the sound, the crunch, the everything........ everything except when it overstays its welcome....... everything except when I can't get up a small slope by my house and have to watch the SUV's skate past me....... everything except when I miss work for 3 days straight.

It really was beautiful, I've got photos to prove it, but even by the 3rd day it took Cole a good 3 hours before he wanted to go outside. He was normally waking me at 7am with boots in hand, "Mama...... can we go outside now?"

I'm just glad he finally got to enjoy some snow. It's normally so rare here. Even talking to Shawn's brother in Michigan days before, they had nothing so far! Northern Michigan with no flakes yet and us with snow twice (it was soon to be 3 times). Strange.

Being at home did give me a chance to get a little more organized and do some well deserved purging!! I brewed a big pot of coffee and let the caffeine do its thing! Yippee! Went thru the cupboards and got rid of old mugs, bakeware I have yet to use and baby Cole stuff I just don't need. I "found" my table, filed away the important stuff (really, how long do I have to keep my old phone bills??) and organized all of Cole's artwork - ugh. What a GREAT feeling!!

I know it's a little late for the pictures, but my computer at work is my only outlet, so you just had to wait.
