How I long to see these flowers in my front yard again! Winter is so long here. It makes me depressed. I'm cold all the time...tired of trying to keep warm. I sure am grateful for my electric blanket though, but it's too big to drag around the house during the day : ) We have a little electric heater that we sit in front of during the day when I'm doing school with the kids. That's helpful.
I'm sitting here in a quiet house (kind of nice) because I just didn't have it in me to get up and go to church with my family this morning. I cleaned up the kitchen...had lots of pots and pans to wash. I put a rump roast in the oven because my dad is coming for dinner today. It was his birthday last week & we weren't able to get together, so I thought it might be nice to make him a nice meal. He's been having some financial struggles and doesn't have the money to treat himself to meals like this often.
We will be having my famous homemade mashed potatoes (at least they are famous in my family : ) , corn, a salad and of course roast beef with gravy. I think I'm going to make him some banana bread to take home, once the roast is done. I need two ovens : ) He's doesn't really like sweets, so I don't think I'm going to make a cake for him.
I took my 4 year old daugter to a different dentist this past week. I was hoping to find a dentist willing to work with us, in regards to a treatment plan that I was comfortable with, for her decayed teeth. The only option I was given was to sedate her and he also blamed me for her tooth decay because I nursed her to long. Oh joy!...I guess this is all adding to that depressed feeling. I know it will pass, and the warm weather will be here before we know it....just venting : )
