Being home with the kids sometimes makes me desperate for communication with adults. I got a lot of that today.

I went to the library with Alyssa this morning. She told me not to look out the window. But I did anyway. I was not happy with what I saw. It is currently -1° feels like -17°.

Alyssa is a really thoughtful gift-giver. Last year she remembered that I had mentioned something about my cookie sheets and she got me amazing, nice ones that I use every day. I few months ago she asked me if I had an apple peeler/corer/slicer and I said that I wished I did. So she got me one for my birthday. I love these things!

I hosted Make & Eat Nite tonight. I was having a hard time coming up with an idea of what we should do and then I came back to food, where I always end up. We had a freezer meal exchange. Quite a few people canceled last minute so there were only five of us but it was fun.

I made zuppa toscana and breadsticks. We ate it for dinner last night and it was amazing. I hope everyone else likes it, too.

Sam took the boys out to dinner and then put them to bed downstairs. He did a great job of keeping them away from ME Nite to not break the "No kids allowed" rule.

I got to communicate with my sister on the phone today. I am so excited to see her in six days! I did not communicate with Sam very much today so I should probably get back to that now.
