I'm sure this is a sign... the weather turned poor as soon as we left. It must be Texas' way of saying we're supposed to come back.

You've missed these types of temps. Come on just admit it. You're reveling in the the memory of your childhood.(giggle!)

You're right, Sally Sue. I DID go out and buy myself a winter jacket around Christmas. HOWEVER, that was SUPPOSED to be for when I went to Canada two times in FEBRUARY. NOT FOR TEXAS, for heaven sake!
Fancy Pants, I have shut out any and all painful cold memories from childhood. Do you hear me? SHUT THEM OUT!

I am definitely laughing! and perhaps more than a little bit happy. I know I'm cruel but seriously everyone should have to at least deal with a little winter weather.
