Hibernation here we come.....

So, This week has made it more and more obvious that hibernation mode is going to start soon for Cady and I. I love the fall season but I hate being cold!! I wish it would be nice and pretty but just a tad bit warmer....sweatshirt and jeans weather is what I like....please just a little warmer....pretty please! :-) This will be the first winter that I will spend not working. And I must admit I'm a little nervous about it. I'm very nervous about getting stir crazy and bored and not know what to do with myself. Will I fall into the depression that I have fought so hard to get under control? Will I get so mad at the little things that I will start taking it out on Cady? Will I be able to handle being stay at home mommy who actually stays home and not the one who tries to avoid it at all costs? Or will the opposite happen....Will I LOVE the fact that I don't have to trudge through multiple feet of snow everyday to see what inventory we have outside? Will I love being able to feel my fingers and not having to wear gloves even while I'm in the office? Will I love not having to drive for an hour for what was normally only a 30 minute drive to work because I have to go into work BEFORE the snow plows start plowing? Or....Will I forget about all of my worries when I wake up snuggled in bed under 2 comforters with my baby girl next to me all warm and cozy every morning?

I'm hoping for mine and Cady's and everyone else's sake that I am able to forget about all of the things that worry me about this up coming cold wintry season....for now I think I will just start loading up on all of the fun projects out there to keep Cady and I sane while we begin the Michigan Winter Hibernation Season!!

Please pray that we will survive! :-)
