A New Month

I see that it's been almost a month since my last post! No wonder my mom mentioned that I hadn't blogged lately. Sorry about that. I've been busy dealing with some pain and a new addiction to Facebook...all my comments have been there lately.
January was pretty good except for pain. Ian has been playing basketball games on Saturdays. He has two more to go. The last one is Feb. 14Th. Not sure who thought that Valentine's Day would be a great day for basketball, but that's the way it is.
January also brought some unwelcome van problems that we're still trying to figure out. We replaced the alternator, thinking it was possible that it was the trouble, but it wasn't. Right now we're trying to figure out why our oil light keeps coming on...I'm sure it has nothing to do with going 11,000 miles between oil changes!!!! Ugh! I'm not in charge of that, but I think I'd better mark the calendar so I can remind the person who is in charge of getting the oil changed...he shall remain anonymous!
After all the snow in December, we had flooding in January and then Ian got sick and shared his illness. We're still trying to get back into our normal routine..last week was the first week we resumed activities. It felt good to be doing "normal" things.
Today is Groundhog Day and of course, he saw his shadow! I did see a promising sign today...I saw the first crocus in bloom, a pretty purple one. A nice reminder that winter won't last forever. It's nice to be reminded!
