While it has been pretty typically cold here in Southeast Idaho, we don't have any snow. That is very, very not normal for this little town. Right now everyone seems to be getting slammed with snow and yet, we have nothing. The weather people say we might get some tomorrow. Honestly, I'm not complaining about the lack of snow. However, it does seem like if it is going to be so cold we may as well get something out of it. The kids really want to go sledding and make a snow man with the awesome new snow paints they got from Santa for Christmas. Right now all we get out of the weather system that is bringing snow to places like Seattle, is wind, wind and more wind. I don't know whether to hope for snow or not.

Snow or not, we've all got the January blues. It happens every year. I get sick of gray, short days and start to get itchy to move. My kids get sick of the dull weather too (which is probably why they are hoping for snow). Mr. Spud suffers too. He is always too busy, stretched too thin and he also starts thinking of looking for a different job. Somehow I've got to find a way for us to take vacations in January. We need to get a timeshare in Arizona or something. We need the break!!!
