Springtime in February

Crazy weather we're having, isn't it? Snow one day, 70 degrees 2 days later. Like I said, crazy.

The warm started on Friday, just in time for softball skills day on Saturday and softball practice on Sunday. Do you know what happened then?

It stayed warm!!

So today I threw open all the windows and did some spring cleaning. After all, it's far more pleasant to clean with the windows open. The major rooms are all sparkling clean and the laundry is going well. I even did a couple of projects that have been waiting on a few moments of attention.

What motivated me to work so hard?

The weather! It's in the 70s in February and it's not likely to stick around, so I'm planning to take advantage of it - without the guilt of housework that I should be doing hanging over my head. I invited a friend with girls around the ages of K and L to spend the day with us tomorrow and we're headed north to a big park to spend the day outside, soaking up the warmth. After all, it would be absolutely criminal to stay indoors in weather like this.

In fact, if you'd like to join us Tuesday, let me know and I'll tell you when and where we'll be. It'll be fun, I promise.
