This and That

I haven't been very good about blogging lately, I know. Things are just hectic. So, I thought I'd do a condensed version of what's been going on.

First of all, happy birthday to my Mom today. We're into February, which is known as The Birthday Month around here. My mom is February 1st, I'm the 17th, Connor is the 22nd and Anna is the 23rd. Very poor planning on our part, I must admit. Crazy times.

Strawberry picking a couple of weeks ago. Florida amazes me. One week, everything is frozen and things are turning brown and it looks like we'll never make it back to the beach. Then, a few days later, the kids come home from the strawberry fields with these and a lot more just like them. Of course, I still need to spend a week cleaning up the yard, cutting things back, hauling lawn debris to the compost pile and replacing plants, but, at least I have strawberry shortcake.
Connor got glasses. That's been a big help. When he got them he threw his hands in the air and yells, "Yeah! Glasses!!!" Kids? I don't know.
Tucker grew up. I refer to him as 'My Little Pony' now. He's not even six months old and he already weighs almost sixty pounds. It's ridiculous. He walks us now, not the other way around!
And, of course, the fridge died. The day I was going to put the deposit down on our ski house rental, it just decided it was done. It had already been repaired 3x and didn't actually work right anyway so it had to be replaced. Of course, the new one cost - almost to the penny - what we were planning to spend on our trip. So, no skiing this year. Very sad. Better luck next year, I guess.
