So I guess I'd have to say the winter has been a mixed bag for us. I mentioned before that we've had some great winter weather for this part of the country. That respite makes it a little easier to tolerate the thought of the coming summer heat. But we haven't escaped the nasty bugs that tend to go along with this time of year, and we've long observed that the more people who live in our house the longer these bouts last, because our family loves to share! Seems like no matter how many times we wash our hands, how much we air out the house, how carefully we control the disposal of used tissues, we end up with a few weeks each winter when all we can do is nurse each other. Maybe that's what it takes to make us actually look forward to the heat!
During some of the down time I've been doing a lot of bloghopping, getting to know some of the fabulous gals out there who contribute some real writing gems to Bloggityville.
