I turned 39 last Saturday! It’s been a week since then, and more than two weeks since I’ve blogged, and it’s been busy and eventful and so much has been going on. So I desperately need to catch up here.

It’s a new year, and Picasa is dead. Picasa has been dead for quite some time, but I was still using it to make these outfit collages. It is surprisingly hard to find a collage maker that will just let you take some number of vertical photos and put them in a grid, nothing fancy. I got a new laptop this week (more on that later), so now the old copy of Picasa I was using is gone, and I can’t download it anymore. Ugh.

I haven’t posted a playlist in forever. No idea why, I just haven’t. But I’m ready for spring, which has been a bit of a tease this week with freak snow falling yesterday after weather in the 50s and 60s. So, this is what I’ve been listening to. Still fairly moody and wintry songs, but with a little bit of irreverence thrown in for spring’s sake.

We had a small little snowstorm on Sunday, but now it’s Friday night and the eastern seaboard is hunkering down for a giant snowstorm worthy of all the nicknames. Jonas, that scamp.

I’m a bit late with this, it’s been a week. It’s been a month. H turned 3, I had the stomach flu for a week, spring never came. Huge highs, some lows. I’m glad March is over, but I’m also bummed. There’s no buildup to H’s birthday anymore, and suddenly we just have a three-year-old.

Last week was an absolute BEAR. I came home Monday from work and got sick, and I stayed sick through Friday night. In between bouts of thinking I was better before getting sick again, we had a blizzard. And H and I played in the snow. AND, for the umpteenth time this winter, we snow painted. Which was so incredibly good for my soul.

I’ve been so sick this week and out of commission since Monday afternoon. I felt somehow inundated and not-quite-myself at work on Monday, which was supposed to be the kickoff to Read Across America at school. We had a delayed opening because of snow and ice, and the day’s events were rescheduled…to Wednesday, when I was home sick with the stomach flu.

I loved last weekend. I only left the house to go get some lunch with Adam and H on Saturday. The rest of the weekend was spent inside being a glorious homebody.

I have a lot of big goals for 2015, but January was a little much. H’s been waking up at all hours, and we’ve had snow days, pinkeye, and my own stomach bug just this week keeping us so cooped up ever since the holidays. And really tired. There have been a lot of leggings and ponytails this month, which usually means mama’s too tired for laundry and hairdos. I missed a lot of outfit photos, and I’m fairly sure I was wearing yoga pants on all of the missed days.

I haven’t posted about school in forever. Well, it’s winter, so…we’re reading winter books in pre-k and kindergarten! It snowed this weekend, which makes this even more appropriate to post about. We are well into our novels in grades 1-6, we’ve been reading them since November. And I did a lot of various holiday stories with the little ones in the fall. Now it’s January, so we’re enjoying some snowy stories.
