Boy, I will tell you this -- these days are the doldrums of winter. There is no more boring time than January and February. Too far from the holidays to still feel that thrill. Too far from Spring and Summer to feel that tingle. Boring, boring, boring. I guess it is a good idea to take a long vacation at this time of year. Unfortunately, I am not.

As you can see, I don't even have anything decent to write about. Politics? No. Religion? No. Cooking? No. Books? Well, maybe. I just finished "Turtle Moon" by Alice Hoffman. This is the first book by this author that I have read and I truly enjoyed it. Intense characters and interesting plot with a good ending. I just started "Then We Came To The End" by Joshua Ferris. This was reviewed by kookiejar and seems pretty good.

Waiting for Spring!

I am working today and it is very quiet here in the office. My daughter and her family are coming to visit on Friday for the weekend. Definitely I look forward to that. Those two little guys will perk me up!

Happy Winter (ha, ha) to all of you.

Even here in SoCal the weather gets gray, the kindergarteners get grumpy, and so do the teachers!

Please send back the sunshine!

Have a great weekend with Beth and the boys! Spring will be here soon - I hope. I'm so tired of winter too.
