Baby, it's cold INSIDE!

I was awoken to the sound of my husband telling me that the heater is broken and he is waiting for the tech to call him back. We ended up having to leave the gas stove on (the front two burners) to keep the house warm. When we got up it was a "balmy 63 degrees" (as DH would say). It took until 11 to get it warm again(that and almost $400). At least we know it is fixed right this time, and that the AC is going ot get a good going over the spring.

My DD#3 was not happy with the fact that she couldn't go in the kitchen(had her locked out for her own protection). She has been n a roll ever since. I think I finally got her to go to sleep, but not with out any fighting. At least I know it will be quiet for the next hour or so!

Now to get DS and DD#2 to take a nap! Oh wouldn't that be a nice queit afternoon!

It's the little things...

that make me happy! Last night my husband decided to finish putting my sewing area together. I now have a chair, table and light in the living room to stitch in. I have had said chair for 2 years, but because our baby girl needed her playpen in the living room, we didn't have room for my stuff. Jillian is now over the "cage" and will not get close to it, so we took it down and put up my stuff.

I have a glider, table and Portable Daylight(Thanks Angi!!) sitting in front of the window. This summer I will be able to look out at my rose garden(I have 19 rose bushes in the front yard). I will also be able to watch the kids ride their bikes, while Miss Jillian is napping, and not have to pace back and forth worrying about Jonas listening to the kid across the street(We can cross the road. We don't have to ask. We are big enough....)

Now I have to convince the kids that the chair was put there for me to sit in! So far they have been in it more then I have! Oh well, the newness will wear off soon, and it will be mine, ALL MINE!
