Winter. I fold.

Has anyone been watching the weather channel lately?  If you haven't let me tell you-we are experiencing a winter to end all winters here in Virginia (by Virginia standards, not everywhere standards).  Anyone who knows me knows that I HATE WINTER.  (Also know that to me hate is a bad word used only in the most infuriating of circumstances.) 
We have had some serious snow storms this winter, and after having 18 inches of snow fall last weekend, I thought I was in the clear.  I was very wrong.  We (Jack, Thomas and I) are supposed to fly out on Thursday to go to Utah while Ben drives to Mexico.  We decided this would be the best because our youngest angel cries/screams/can't hear my own thoughts because it is so loud type of shrill, every time we get into the car.  When we made this decision my loving father said that he would fly all the way out here and fly back to help me with the kids.  (Wow, I love my dad.)  We just got news that because of the storm that is supposed to hit us tomorrow night (with all its 10-20 inches of glory) ALL FLIGHTS COMING INTO DC HAVE BEEN CANCELLED until Wednesday.  My dad isn't coming.  Umm...this is going to be interesting.  We are still supposed to fly out on Thursday, and we are hoping that works out but right now I am feeling so upset with snow and winter, I can't even think straight.  I am sure that everything will be fine, but right now, I have declared myself done with winter.  I am estranging myself and fleeing my homeland.   That's it.  I'm heading south. I've counted to ten and stated my peace.
Wish me luck.

I'm glad to hear everything is okay with Thomas and the E.R. Scary, right?? I will be thinking of you and praying for you. I agree that flying with 2 kids is not fun, but hey, you're super mom and I know you'll do great!! I will be jealous that you'll soon be in warm, warm Mexico - enjoy! I hope the moves goes very smoothly! Crazy weather for D.C. - geez!!!

We'll be praying for you! Just keep thinking about that fantasy version of Mexico that I'm sure is going to be exactly accurate!
