spring fever

I don’t get out of the house much these days. Gabe’s car has been in the shop, and I hate the snow and cold. I should probably relocate south a few degrees latitude–or move to a different country. On second thought, since we’ve moved so many times already, we really should just stay put for a few years. I wonder if we can actually do that.

I spoke to the MOPS group at my church this morning–fun, sweet ladies with lots of good questions for me about s-e-x. I’m debating whether or not to start going to MOPS myself (every other Monday).We’re already at church on Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. It just seems like a little much. But the interaction would be fun, and they’re starting a childcare co-op. Mmmm…

I had some funny stuff written down that Livi and Ava said this week, but I misplaced it. I could make something up, I guess. I can’t even remember anything we did this week, although I’m sure each day was action-packed.

Saturday, we went to visit my Grandma Yoder and then my Grandpa Figley. We met my mom and dad who were babysitting 2 of my brother’s kids this weekend–Anna and Ethan. Maybe I’ll post a couple cute pics tomorrow. The girls always have so much fun with their cousins. Hopefully, they’ll get to see their cousins on Gabe’s side this weekend.

The five of us played in the snow yesterday after church. The back yard is treacherous, layers of snow and ice. Each time you step, you go through a layer of icy snow, then you can barely get your foot back out. My thighs were sore after being out there for about 10 minutes. Nina absolutely hates getting her snow clothes on. I’m really ready for spring. I haven’t liked winter since I was about eight.

When your own blog is boring you to tears, it’s well past time to sign off. Thrilling blogs to resume at a later date.

    Louisville is just slightly farther south but we seem to avoid all the nasty winter weather.  It gets cold, so you have the 4 seasons, but no snow that sticks or ice.  I LOVE IT!  I cannot stand winter.  Today it is 54 degrees and I’m loving it.  Actually went outside without a jacket on today! YEAH!  So…….my point……what is one more move?  L’ville is a beautiful, right on the Ohio River, better weather, far enough but not too far from home! 🙂  Shall I call a realtor for you?

    I wish our church had MOPS or some kind of study with childcare!  And I wish we could all hear your talk.  🙂

    One of my friends has already ordered your book based on your Valentine e-mail…that was a good idea!

    I definitely don’t miss the snow and ice…after 24+ years without it, freezing temps are even hard to take. 

    As for MOPS, we didn’t have MOPS when my children were younger but there were several Mother’s Day Out programs that allowed you to drop your children off for about 4-5 hours for a very reasonable fee.  I didn’t use them alot but it was nice to have it available occasionally.

    I miss the snow. 🙁

    But if you were here with me you would have turned the AC on in the car like I did. It was only 65, but it felt warmer in the squintingly bright sunshine. This weekend it’s supposed to be 75 and mostly sunny.

    You can go ahead and come down for the weekend if you want. 🙂

    I loved faithchicks comment about you being the resident expert on s-e-x!  Loved that!  I have to tell you our pastor got your book.  I figured he would take it home to his wife.  Instead he told her he got this book and that from time to time publishers will send him books and it was for women and something about chocolate and do you want me to tell you where it said to put it?  She told him she was diabetic and didn’t need to know.  we just laughed.  Anyway he gave the book to Mary’s husband and said “this is a book for women and she is in charge of womens minstry!”  So anyway Mary is passing it along to his wife!  MEN!

    I AM READY FOR SPRING!!!  I could hibernate in the winter very easily.  And for what it’s worth, I’ve heard MOPs is great.  Wish they would have had something like that when my kids were little.  Not sure if they did but they didn’t in our area.

    If you are looking for a nice warmer climate – you know where you could go…….

    I love snow, I miss snow, everywhere but here is getting snow 🙁

    Glad the MOPS meeting went well…

    MOPS= Mothers of PreSchoolers. 🙂

    I’m itching for spring, too. I’m not much of a trooper when it comes to being out & about in the snow & cold, but i love going, going, going in nice weather.

    Does it feel weird sometimes that you’re the resident expert on s-e-x now? just curious…that’s a big job to have!! 😀

    What’s MOPS?

    Don’t hate snow!! I haven’t seen any yet…..And I can’t WAIT for winter. It’s almost Autumn here (one-ish week to go!!!!!!!!) and I am really, really, really looking forward to the cold weather.

    I must agree with KmHunsberger about MOPS. It can really depend on the women who attend. I think the MOPS group that I attend is unbelievable. We range in age from 26 to 43 years old.

    I thought of you this past weekend when I went to see Beth Moore in Detroit. I’ll have to e-mail you.

    I absolutely love our MOPS group here….. we only have it once a month though…. second Friday morning of the month – love that big breakfast! 

    We’re itching for spring too…. Livvy can’t wait to get out and ride her bike that she is just sure she’s getting for her birthday in April.  🙂

    I am SO ready for spring…mainly bc Spring means Baby which means NO MORE BEING PREGNANT!!!! 🙂

    I have missed you this past week…you seemed MIA.

    I was in a MOPS group when Landon was a baby. I kind of liked it…I think it depends mostly on the women who attend…if you click with them or not. I was about 5 to 15 years younger than every woman in there. I am looking into joining one here for next year though. I think I may finally be ready to join a mommy group (considering I will have two kids) and women around here have kids a lot younger than the women in Detroit did 🙂 Anyway… 🙂

    My sister was describing that snow to me. According to her, my niece is too light to sink through the icy top layer, so she just trucks over it with no problem. Beki was chasing her (read: trying to run!) in that mess that captures your feet and makes it HARD to move. We don’t have that going on down here, thank goodness, but I’m still ready for spring. I think we have a warm-up coming this week. Yay!
