Hello again! Hope you are well on this crisp clear winter day! We currently have about a foot of snow on the ground, not counting the piles. There are piles of snow everywhere. It's absolutely heavenly if you happen to be 3-1/2 years old.
We took Christmas down today. It's always kind of nice, at the end of the season, to get your room back. Now it feels like the new year. I start thinking ahead... what will 2013 bring? Jai and I are trying to make a list of all the things that need us to spend money on them, so we can try and plan out where our limited resources will be going in the next year. As always, the list out is longer than the list in, but it is nice to be thinking ahead, and dreaming of little ways to make improvements. My lists always start out with the fun stuff, and end up with the stuff that I remember as I go - things like maintenance, repairs, and bills. Jai looked at my list, and said, "that looks right, if we do it in reverse order." Booger!
