We're getting ready to batten down the hatches here in New York. There is a rather LARGE nor'easter heading our way apparently, complete with snow measuring in feet not inches and high winds. We're more inland so the wind won't be as bad for us but we're still piling up the porch with firewood just in case we lose power. After spring like weather last week we're now in the midst of twenty degrees below normal temperatures. I'm hoping the little buds popping thru the ground will be able to survive.
Son number one, Connor, headed out today to catch a plane to Wisconsin for his first ever business trip. He'll be gone for a week, including St. Patrick's Day. : ( He's so calm about traveling alone. I don't know how I'd feel about it. I'm the first to admit I rely way too much on my husband when it comes to the details of getting to the airport and checking in and all the other things that go with it. Since he was very young, Connor has been pretty much fearless when it comes to new experiences. I've always tried to give my kids their freedom and their wings as often as I can. It's so different from when I was a child and we were free to roam and not have to check in until dinner time. We were safe and never really worried about bad things happening to us. Not that bad things didn't happen. We were just blessed to live in a town where we felt safe. I made him promise he'd text when he was safe and sound in his hotel room. Thankfully his flights there and back shouldn't be effected by the weather. How ironic that he's avoiding a snow storm by going to Wisconsin. BRRRR!!!
Now I'm off to pop a chicken in the oven. I hope you're having a beautiful and peaceful Sunday!!
