My First Big Seattle Snow!

Okay, I'm from New Mexico. When I was little I remember snow. We would sled. We would tube down very large hills. There was snow. As I grew up, the snow seemed less and less until we got one day of snow a year and then just mud and slush.
This is our current situation.
It's been snowing since Monday. School has been canceled since Tuesday (Monday was a holiday and no school anyway). I haven't been able to go to work because the family I work for has been working from home this week due to the weather (also, it's terrible on the roads!). We are stuck inside. It is still snowing.
It's gorgeous here! I'll never say otherwise. However, that being said, I am getting cabin fever. The girls are cooped up and getting too wild to handle. I have no ideas for what to do with them and their attention spans are non-existent anyway. I will leave this post saying this: I love the snow, but I need it to stop now.
That said, here's a suggestion to keep warm.
Keep warm and have a great day!

Okay, so here I am.

There have been a lot of changes over the past year.  The biggest change was moving my family from New Mexico, where my kids were born, to Seattle, where none of us had been before. I like choosing a place at random and moving, but I had never done it with kids before. I had no job beforehand, no apartment, no experience in such a big city.

We've done okay. I got a job at Starbucks (since I was in Seattle, why not?) and found an apartment. I enrolled Sadie in kindergarten. I am trying to make some changes to our life and blogging will be a part of it, I think. I need an outlet, so I've decided to start here. More to come...
