We have been getting snow here in small amounts in the upstate. On Dec 21, Mother Nature must of gotten a wild hair and decided that since the world wasn't ending that needed some snow. We had rain/slush/snow on the 21st. I then had 5 days straight of shoveling. I got a day off on the 26th, only for her to turn around and dump a foot on us Dec 27th. I have no clue how much we have gotten today. I did shovel at lunch time when I went out to get the mail, but I'm going to wait until tomorrow to do it again. At that point I'll probably have to dig out the snowblower and use it again. Only 29 days until we move south and I hopefully won't see snow for the rest of the winter.

Off Track

So I made it about a 100 days or so taking photos. To me, that is great that I was able to go that long. Things are crazy around here like normal still, but I now have 3 kids in school (yahoo!). Somehow the 5 hours a day that I get to myself is just not enough to get everything done. Since I've last posted, we have had adventures to the zoo, camping a couple of times, another awesome hike, a car accident (totaled out my baby), a couple of day trips, me walking my first 2 5Ks, and other adventures. I've also decided to not try to do a photo a day anymore since it oblivious doesn't work for me. Instead I'll try to do more about places we visit and things to do since it's more of who I am.
