Winter Blahs and the Coming Sunshine

Man, this winter is nasty! I haven't seen so much snow in years. I don't mind the snow so much as the cold. It has been extra cold, with little one day warm-ups to get you outside only for it to drop off again. Right now there's a foot of snow on the ground, but it's been raining all morning. So much for my grocery shopping outing!

On a better note: I only have two more weeks of working midnights! At first I was sad thinking about rejoining the hectic pace of the daytime workplace with two hundred other people. But what really made me happy was spending some time with my wife this weekend and knowing I'll be able to do a lot more of that soon. I really miss having a full weekend. We also have a lot of things to do around the house to get ready for the baby in June, so being back on a nromal schedule will help.

Another thing to boost my spirits is I get to visit my parents in Charleston in April. I wish my wife could go with me, but she won't be in a state for traveling by then.
