Love me some snow!!!

Yesterday I had my first Wednesday at PT school and the sitter did great with my two littles :)  I let my class out early since they were calling for some serious winter weather, and it was a wreck getting home.  Took me over 2 hours to make a 45 minute drive and it was well before rush hour.  During the drive I saw everything from rain, to sleet, to freezing rain, to some weird slush stuff to snow.  Got home and settled in and we watched the snow fall.

Ryan worked from home last night and I cannot tell you how much I love when he does that.  He ate dinner with us, and this morning when I got up with the kids he had done the dishes, roasted some coffee beans for me and made steel cut oats for the crew.  He is now at the grocery store and shoveled the walkway and driveway....none of this would have happened if he had to do the commute :)  Thankfully he is getting everything we need for the weekend, so the kids and I plan to hole up, make a fire and enjoy the snow days! 

I feel like I am turning the corner on my post partum anxiety.  I am still feeling overwhelmed and the state of the house still gets to me, but I am able to deal with it easier and I understand that it doesn't need to be perfect.  I am also feeling a lot more energetic, guess I have all the energy I was using to stress back now.  Today I am moving laundry through, cleaned the kitchen, will vacuum after lunch and have plans to make broccoli cheddar soup and BLTs for dinner!  I also promised the kiddos we can make cookies.  Busy busy!
