Iiiiii’mm sooooooo c-c-c-cold.
Brr baby, brr!
The temps have been brutal all this week but what’s made it infinitely worse is the wind. I’ve been putting off getting gas in my car for the last few days but finally couldn’t hold out any longer. I think my face was permanently frozen when I jumped back in and cranked up the heat. Who needs botox!!??
I went to the dentist yesterday, which is always a pain but I’ll admit I feel better when I walk out knowing I got a thumbs up on cavaties for the next 6 months and my teeth are feeling smooth and shiny. I had to leave work a bit early to make the last appointment of the day – so I rushed over – only to have to sit and wait 15 minutes before they’re ready for me. Ugh. Then they ran out of time and didn’t have anyone available to chart my gums – so they did some quick checks and gave me a $10 gas card. *rolls eyes*
Mom and Dad drove Alex down to Madison yesterday for his WI send-off. The local news was there along with U.S. Olympic speedskater Casey FitzRandolph and Department of Corrections Secretary, Ed Wall.
The news blurb was so cute – and they have a quick segment with Alex. I have to admit, every time I watch anything on TV I start crying. It’s so overwhelming and I’m super proud of him. It’s surreal seeing your family on television!

Opening ceremonies are on Tuesday. I’m a nervous nellie over here waiting.
Last night was super-quick dinner eats since I had to dash home from the dentist (slipping a bit on the on-ramp and almost freaking out, EEEK!!!) and get some food ready before class. We’ve found some decent organic dinner sausages that are perfect pan-fried with some veggies.
Class again tonight and then we coast on into the weekend. Nothing too crazy planned – I am dropping off my old camera so the parents will each have one to bring with and Ben’s donating his noise-cancelling headphones for the trip too. I have a facial tomorrow, which should be fun and hopefully not leave me battered and brusied the way my massage did. Can you believe I’m STILL bruised, swollen, and tender on my arm?
67 days until April 1. Hang in there folks. Winter will be over before we know it (we hope!).
