Yes, that's the temperature that it was this morning. 18 degrees. It only got up to 30 degrees this afternoon and now that the sun has set the temperature is falling-fast. I'm shivering, my teeth are chattering, I may loose a toe or two to frost bite, my lips are a beautiful shade of blue...all this with the heater ON! Ok, so all those things may or may not be happening but I AM cold. Too bad it didn't snow. :(

So this morning I actually got myself ready and headed to the DMV to renew my driver's license. The last time I was at the DMV was when I was 18. Since then I have taken the easy choice and renewed online. Unfortunately I waited till my license was already expired to go online this year only to read that you can't renew expired licenses. Grr. So I have been procrastinating going in and finally made the push to go there today. I was expecting long lines, grumpy people, and an overall dumpy experience. Pleasantly, it was none of the above. Apparently since WF is the size of a peanut, you can be in and out of the DMV in less than 15 minutes and are treated to some sincerely nice people. Way to go small town USA!

That was the only time I was out of the house today. I am in need of some melatonin. Sunshine please. Fresh air. I think it's suppose to warm up on Tuesday before another cold front comes thru on Wednesday night. Maybe the boys and I can get outside for a couple of hours...

I ordered the Firstborn Series by Karen Kingsbury this morning! Can. Not. Wait. I told you, I'm addicted to this writer right now. And yes Marci, I'll send them your way when I'm done. :)

Let me give a few shout outs here:
Spellcheck-you forever have changed my life.
Amazon.com-what would I do without Free Super Saver Shipping?
Febreze-you make my house smell awesome and Stu doesn't make me throw you away.
Sippee cups-wow, I would be a much madder mom now.
Milk-my children are gigantic thanks to your calories. My almost-two-year-old is in 3T/4T because of you.

Hmmmm...maybe millk is our issue. Allison is 2 and a half (almost) and is in 4T/5T. Of course this probably has nothing to do with the fact that my hubby is 6'3"!

We got our kitchen at Toys R Us. Funny story about ours- I bought it two times. It's original price was $260. The first time, I had a coupon for 20% off (so I paid $208). Then it was in the sale ads for $199 and I called and asked if I could use another 15% coupon on top of the $199. They said yes but I had to return the first one and re-buy another one, so I ended up paying $170. $90 off! So I would totally recommend watching for some coupons if you're thinking about it- they're worth it! You can find it on the Step2website for cheaper, too ($239 w/ free shipping)- it's http://www.step2.com/product.cfm?product_id=1402. Good luck!
