Is Houston's Spring Really on its Way?

So Punxsutawney Phil, the season-forecasting groundhog, did not see his shadow on Friday, indicating spring is on its way. Well, I wish it would hurry. After dropping Little K off at nursery school this morning, I had to catch up with my friend & fellow-Mom Amy. As we talked about local schools and pediatricians, I noticed our warm breath fogging in the air. IT'S JUST COLD OUTSIDE. Come on, spring! Am I the only mom who is ready for warm sunny weather, afternoon strolls through the neighborhood without coats & blankets, and gosh... how about a dip in the pool? I can't wait. I just hope Punxsutawney Phil is right.

We've got a fun but busy week planned. Between nursery school three days this week (Oh, and my job!), we have MOPS on Tuesday with a speaker on dating your husband while my daughter plays with her little friends, a trip to Texas Children's Hospital to run the food allergy test on Little K (right, that one is NOT fun), a taste test at a Heights restaurant on Wednesday with Great Grandmother, a twirl at the Vale-Asche Playground in Memorial Park with friend Milla, and a play date next Saturday with some of Mommy's friends from elementary and high school. I've got to remind myself that Sunday is for rest! But I'm looking forward to sharing tips and fun ideas with all of you. PLEASE let me know if you have any ideas, too. Thanks!
