This past week included a snow day, parent/teacher conferences, finding out we have ice dams and water leaking in through the windows, a visit from Sean's brother, preparing for Artemis' surgery, spackling the bathroom walls for a fourth time, organizing the kitchen pantry, eating Chinese food, filing taxes, chiseling snow off our driveway, and New Girl marathons on Netflix. I'm really ready for the weather to be warmer. I'd like to fill my days with things that don't include snow, dark mornings, dark evenings, cleaning up leaks from icicles or shoveling. I don't mind the Netflix marathons. I won't lie.
