It is January.  In Ohio.  It is Cold.  So cold I feel I will never get warm.  The air I breathe is too cold.  My fingers feel like icicles.  My feet are almost numb.  The only warm spot is in the living room where the stove resides.  But most of my work is on the other end of the house.  Where. It. Is. Cold.  I'm not dealing with it very well.  It is so hard to keep the girls doing school when the school room is cold.  And they have to do at least some of it there because they use the computers. 

The picture above is a beautiful hydrangea from last summer.  I wish it were summer all year.  I'm so tired of being cold.  Thankful December wasn't like this, but now it is and I don't like it.

On a more cheerful note my laptop should be here within a week!  Then at least when I want to be blogging I can do it from my couch.  Where it is warm.

Now I need to get school lessons ready.  I've implemented a new plan to get the girls going earlier.  They get 5 points for being showered, dresses and breakfasted by 8:15.  It is 8:10 this morning and they are ready.  Except for Little Sister.  She hasn't appeared yet and I decided to let her sleep.  She's my 'baby' after all.

Off the races!  Maybe I WILL race around for awhile.  It might warm me up.

Good luck on the getting-around-in-the-morning battle! :) It just isn't so fun to have to get up when it's cold and dark!

Cheers for your new plan and pray it goes well. Getting around in time in the morning makes the whole day go better. I know that but don't always practice it. God bless your day. Love, Mother
