Today is freeze your eyeballs cold in Northern IL. That cloud of cold from Alaska finally made it here and thankfully I am walking no children to school today. In fact I would bundle up under some blankets and watch Scooby Doo with the kiddo all day accept that we are out of toilet paper and that's the one item you just can't ignore until the next day. So at some point, we'll bundle up in thermal undies, sweaters, wool socks, snow pants, coats, mittens, scarves, hats and sunglasses and brush the half a foot of snow off the van, start it to warm up for fifteen minutes and drive four blocks to the local grocery while thanking our lucky stars we have indoor plumbing.

We are having a bit of heat wave here, like 40 here. Sorry you have to go out in the weather, cause it sounds might unpleasant. How my mother survived the year we lived on rez with no indooor plumbing and 4 small children is beyond me!
