Today is the first day of the rest of my life!

 At least that is what it felt like as I walked out of work to a balmy 65 degree temperature. Seriously, this winter SUCKED. I know I choose to live in the midwest, and normally the winters are fine and there is always a little whining, but this one was down right ridiculous.

But the best feeling in the world, is the feeling that you just triumphed over one of these ridiculous winters. The smell of mud, grass, melting snow....glorius.

I went for a walk around Lake Calhoun last night and it almost brought a tear to my eye (okay, it actually did, but that was the pregnancy hormones, not the weather). I cannot wait for all of my summer days where me and Baby H can cruise around the lakes, enjoying the sunshine, and basking in the fact that I didn't have to work that day, and I don't have to work the next day!!

In conclusion, F-off winter. Don't come around these parts no more. You and your kind are no longer welcome.

Dad rented a lawn comber and racked up MANY bags of dead grass. I helped bag, and got all the flower beds cleaned out. Bring on the warm weather (and hopefully - no bad storms). Mom
