Our kids on the other hand, were totally thrilled! They were even hoping it will stick so they can make a snowman! Woah! Hold your horses – weather and kids! This mom is NOT ready for winter! My coat is still stashed away deep in my closet. I just pulled out my sweaters and scarves but for the warm fall weather.

By the time, the kids are tucked in their beds, we both are exhausted from the whole day of work (business and home) that all we can do is watch TV on the couch cuddled up.

For the last couple of days I’ve been a walking zombie…. “Walking Dead” has nothing on me. I could scare you just like that. Until I have my morning coffee. In peace. With my Hubby. Getting ready for the day.

I needed that one more hour!
