Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...

... well, as long as JC doesn't mind going out at 7:00 am to shovel and clean off my car anyways! ;)
I am not a winter person. I have never been a winter person. I will never be a winter person. Case in point - my mother used to lock the door behind me when sending me out to play as a child. She wanted to make sure I did more than go out, realize it was cold, and beg to come back in. But I guess the fresh air never hurt...
There is something to be said about waking up to a beautiful blanket of the white stuff... especially when Memphis realizes that he can finally go out and make that snowman he's been talking about for the past few weeks. The kids love it. It makes them happy, and when they're happy, I'm happy. Yay for snow!
It also makes everything feel more "Christmas-ey" - and with a month to go until the big day, what a wonderful way to start the Christmas Countdown!

Welcome to my world!

Let me introduce myself -

My name is Lena, I am inching towards the "big 3-0", work as a receptionist at a local insurance company, have been with the same guy since I was 16 and have not yet said "I do" & probably never will (after 12 years, what's the point? especially when we're happy the way we are - but that's another blog). I have not slept for more than 4 consecutive hours in YEARS, I am constantly stepping on little toys, old food and a cat that never seems to get out of the way in time. I am a mother. I have two wonderful kids. Memphis is 3 and is as precocious, adorable & inquisitive as they come. Ruby is almost 1; she's charming, beautiful and a devil in disguise, I'm sure. The teenage years with her will be interesting, I have no doubt.

This is my blog - a place where I can vent, complain,boast & brag about my life & my kids.
