Thirteen Things I'm looking forward to

1….A glimpse of sun. It has been raining, sleeting, or snowing here since Monday.

2..Playing one of my son's lengthy strategy board games this weekend. He always beats me mercilessly.

3..Having some of my kids' friends over today. They are a nice buffer after all this inside together time.

4..Finishing a blog post about unschooling. I have been overthinking it.

5..Having my husband bring me my coffee on Saturday morning while I laze in bed. He heats the milk, and sweetens it just right. This little ritual means everything to me. It's the little things, guys.

6..Listening to my son play the piano.

7..Spending some overdue alone time with my husband. Fingers are crossed about getting a babysitter.

8..Going to the library to get some new reads. My bedside stack is running low. Any ideas?

9..Making Valentines with the boys. They indulge me a bit here.

10..Planning the do-over for my parents' 50th anniversary debacle.

11..Getting in a good long walk/gab fest with a friend.

12..Buying my next pair of pants in the next smallest size. The exercise is working!

13..Sun, sun, and more sun. Did I mention that already?

We have the sun just not the warmth. My little ones can't comprehend that just because it is sunny out that it is not warm.

I am happy to report that the sun is finally out here and I went for a wonderful walk without being all bundled up. I wished for the sun for a long time too. Good luck. Great read and I really liked #5. Awesome. It is the little things. Have a great TT. :)
