So yesterday was a very very good day!!! We got a package in the mail. Dh and myself agreed on a Valentine Gift that we could share, and it was loooooooong overdue! We got ourselves a heating pad for our mattress! It has been a looong week, knowing it was processed and shipped, and going to bed shivering every night, and counting down the days til it would get here. Then last night, omg omg omg Aaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!!!! WARMTH!!!!! It was fantastical!!!! The sad thing was…. I had to get up this morning! I now require dh to turn the heating pad thingie off at 6 a.m. or so, so I can actually be cold enough to get out of bed. Is that sad, or what. LOL
Besides that we got to go bike riding again! I love love love my bike!!! It’s not sporty like everyone elses. It’s just comfortable and as beach cruiser-ish as a mountain bike can be. Here… I finally got the photos off the camera from Christmas, so now I can show you. We didn’t get much for Christmas in terms of present volume. But we did get the bikes and helmets, and all the kiddo’s got a couple of other little things they wanted. Best Christmas ever in my book! (yeah, the kiddo’s 100% did the tree themselves this year, and yeah, it’s squished to the ceiling. 😛 next year we’ll get a live tree and just lop more off the bottom. hashtag faketreedrama)
And hopefully all of these bikes will last the kiddo’s well through their teen years, and into their 20’s. And yep, it’s like having a little bit of our FL life back again! Bit by bit we are replacing all the stuff we had to leave behind.
And the bestest part of yesterday… Monday we cooked one of those cheap ol turkeys that we got around Thanksgiving time. So yesterday, I had nooooo cooking to do because everyone just munched off the turkey, and stuffing, and mashed potatoes, that we made Monday night for dinner! Emily (youngest dd) made a big double batch of blueberry muffins also, so I didn’t even have to do anything for breakfast! Life is good!
