Hi there, stranger! You have been one busy girl! First of all, congrats on being a grandma again! So happy for you! Also glad to hear the news that DS is halfway thru his deployment! Good news all around!
Call me sometime when you aren't so busy traveling (or maybe WHILE your are traveling) and we'll have a catchup chat!
(((Hugs)))

Ok you can call me bad or nasty if you have to but ........ I have seen Thanksgiving with so much snow we couldn't leave the house or so cold you didn't want to....but not this year so....and here is the bad part. When that cold front went over us and didn't touch us I said thank you.........

Then the other day stuff went by and they were saying that they were having snow in Ky and Tn ,,,,,,now don't yell at me but I said TG it wasn't here. For a couple years when we first moved here in like 71 and 72 we you couldn't have made 10 snow balls all winter... a lot of us loved it....but the farmers not so much......but hey, the years we had tons of snow and they couldn't get into the fields till late April they weren't happy with that either...

So I think after the last couple years we have had with the 2010 storms and snow the floods this year I think the NORTHERN PLAINS could stand a winter that was very light....

I haven't even had my furnace on yet.. and I am going to try not to do it till I really have to.....We have a ranch style house with the hallway down the middle and if you open the pantry door it cuts off the kitchen, living room and dining room from the bath, utility and bedrooms......I shut the utility and the unused bedroom and have the infrared heater pointing from in here down the hall......and I turn it down at night and it is just about perfect for sleeping. In the day I have a small heater that we run in the living room if we need it......I am very tempted to get another infrared heater for the other end of the house, if we don't get a lot of deep cold and wind I don't think I would have to use the furnace all winter.....I don't think that will happen.....lol
