over the river & through the woods, to grandmother’s house we go.

by @according2kelly on January 4, 2008

that’s right, it’s road trip time. we packed up the kids & all the gear, and left warm & sunny california, for the snow. (i don’t know how i ever managed to live here, i freeze so easily!) as we drove & i watched the temperature continue to drop, i found myself wishing i had bought these cute mittens when i first saw them. “what appears to be an ordinary mitten is actually a mitten-within-a-mitten (for keeping mini fingers warm while holding hands). ” how perfect is that?

anyway… we will be busy playing in the snow, playing games, eating, visiting with family, shopping & snowboarding, so posting might be a bit “spotty.” in the meantime i hope you’re keeping yourself busy… setting & keeping those new years resolutions. we’re nearing the end of the first week of 2008, how’s it coming along so far? don’t worry if you’ve already had some setbacks, you know i have. (i ran 3 days this week, but i can already tell that this cold weather is going to do me in. & although i started out with a bang, cooking not only on sunday, but tuesday as well! but i left poor jeffy to fend for himself on wednesday while i frolicked around disneyland.) when you have a little snag, or hit the wall, you just have to remember:

the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. (lao tzu)

so gone on… take that first one, then keep on stepping!

Ohhh, it is cold cold cold here. If you are wanting to come for a visit, maybe we should do that house swap like on the movie "The Holiday". I would gladly trade this for warmer weather. Hope your trip is fun. The snow is beautiful, I do admit!
