Yesterday, we got home from visting my sister's family up in Hudson, WI. It was very cold up there for our visit. Denver's weather was in the 50s and 60s while we were up there. It was well below freezing in Wisconsin. We saw several below zero temperatures. It was nice to visit, though. It is so much to see our two boys with their cousins, and as always my sister and her husband did a great job planning activities and entertaining us.
We got back to a voice mail from a neighbor that our outdoor faucet had been leaking badly. They were able to get our water turned off which was certainly nice of them. We had to call a plumber to fix the problem. To get it replaced, he had to cut holes in our guest bedroom wall. But all in all the whole thing was relatively painless for us. It certainly could have been much worse.
I have noticed that it is hard to recover from vacations. I am not a pioneer in this discovery. Everyone says the same thing.
Generally, I get frustrated at the health club every Janurary because of all the extra people apparently making resolutions. Luckily they are always gone by mid- February. This year Bally does not seem nearly as crowded as usual so close after New Year, so this year the extra people do not bother me quite as much.
I never really understand new year resolutions. If you want to change something, why not start immediately? If it is not important enough to start before a certain day, it probably is not important enough to keep up. That is why most new year resolutions do not last far into February.
Tyler started basketball last night. He is almost a full head taller than the rest of the kids. He is tall for his age, but I think the rest of the kids in this immediate area are extremely tiny. Connor is closer in size to most of these kids than Tyler is.
Anyway, I meant to post this blog entry 5 days ago and I do not really feel like continuing on this any longer so I am going to send it.
