“Nnnnmmggg. Feeling Laaaazzzzyyyy this morning. Wha~aat? I have to get out of bed? Right… why exactly? Nnnnmm. Oh, the kids… they can’t feed themselves?”

Seriously folks, this weather is getting me down. I don’t know about you, but in my neck of the woods winter won’t leave. It just makes me want to go into hibernation until the leaves are on the trees, but who knows when that will even be? Winter has it’s boney fingers around our throats and she’s hanging on with frigid, slushy, windy, bitter, and raw resolve; and I’d like her to go away now.
