Where has the winter gone?

I can't believe that it is March already. Where has the winter gone? Now don't get me wrong, I'm quite glad that it is passing quickly because by the end of February, I'm ready to see the end of the snow. I only got to use my snowshoes once this year because the snow was always quickly followed by rain, so the snow was never that great. Yesterday it was 12 degrees here, around 54 degrees farenheit. That is pretty amazing for this time of year. Sid lay out in the sun all day.

I had a great work trip to Gander and I got back on Friday evening. I've been on a cleaning kick ever since I got back and have gotten rid of ALOT of junk. I just love to sit back and enjoy after the house is all clean. Brian has finished laying the flooring in the spare bedroom (Sid's room) and now just has to paint it. Then he has to start the flooring in the other spare bedroom (to be the kiddo room but right now it's our computer room). I'm hoping that will all be done before the end of Spring.

In between my spurts of cleaning, I have been hooked on watching curling. I've never played but I love to watch it on tv. I've watched several matches live but it's definitely easier to watch on tv. The women's Canadian championship game is on this evening so I'll need to get all my junk cleared out by then so I can sit back and relax.

I head to Hawaii with Mom in just 3.5 weeks. The countdown begins. Just three more weeks of work!

I wish that I could sit and enjoy a clean house. It seems that every time I get a room cleaned and move to the next, the girls have followed me and worked their magic to make it messy all over again. :)

Enjoy your trip to Hawaii. I am sure it is beautiful there. :)
