So why else am I smiling? That's easy:
Spring is two months away. Just around the corner, the thermometer starts going in the good direction. Soon, the Cubs will begin spring training and mittens will become a distant memory.
There will be chicken and dumplings in the crockpot when I get home. Two of my favorite things left behind when Christopher left (other than, well, ME) are the crockpot and the recipe for chicken and dumplings. I can hardly wait to get home.
My boots are both warm and cute. Warm is necessary; cute is a bonus.
In a few weeks, I get to play in the snow with some of my favorite people. I'm going tubing!
Craig runs! That's my car's name, and he sounds so happy when I start the ignition. This morning, I got to hear him growl in four-wheel drive, as if he was saying, "Hey, you in the minivan! Get out of my way!"
So what's making you smile today?
