A Cold Monday

Five Degrees.


Baby It's Cold Outside!

Made worse by the fact that these frigid temps were not accompanied by snow.  

Made a tiny bit better by the fact that my principal let us wear jeans today.

That also helped make it a little easier to return to work today after two weeks home.

Two glorious weeks of sleeping in, wearing my PJs all day if I wanted, and snacking all day.

By the time my noon lunch rolled around today my stomach was growling.

And not quietly.

It's supposed to be slightly warmer tomorrow.  But only slightly.

Liberty & Lincoln normally stay outside while we are work but it was so cold today that they got to stay inside.  Of course we don't trust them to run around the house unsupervised so they were locked up in the laundry room all day.  This means two things.
1. I had a stinky mess to clean up when I got home.
 2.  They were full of energy.

Andrew is working from home tomorrow so they can stay inside with him without having to be in the laundry room.

Yes I whine about how cold it is outside.

But at the end of the day I have a nice warm house to come home to.

I can take a nice hot bath and then crawl into bed under my electric blanket.

God has truly blessed me with more material things than I could ever deserve.

I pray for those who aren't as lucky.  The ones who don't have a nice warm home to go to at the end of the day.

I pray God would protect them from these freezing temperature, that He would give them a place to warm up and food to eat.

  1. I know what you mean about the cold!! I woke up to -4 degrees!! Say what?!?! It finally got up to around 5 degrees for the high. I decided to not leave the house. hehe!

    I too am thankful for my warm home and breaks my heart for those who are less fortunate.
