I feel much the same way. Although without the red, spiky hair. It is crazy hair day at school today and I did the same KoolAid trick I did last year. It is such a quick, easy (although messy) way to dye hair, and the boys like the way it smells.
So, as I mentioned, Phil saw his shadow today. I guess that means six more weeks of winter. Technically, the first day of spring is 6 weeks away so don't we always get six more weeks of winter no matter what Phil sees? Especially in Wisconsin. We have such long winters. Ah well. I really can't complain because so far this winter has been very mild. We have not had very much snow or many horribly cold days. Not like last year. That was a harsh winter and it seemed to last FOREVER.
The weather is supposed to be mild again this weekend so we are considering taking the boys up north to teach them how to ski. There is a family friendly ski hill right by Todd's family's cabin and it is the perfect place for the boys to learn. Every year we say we are going to take the boys skiing, but this year we are actually going to do it. And, it will make for a wonderful birthday weekend for Ben. His birthday is on Monday and there is no place that kid would rather be than up north at the cabin. It is a win/win.
Maybe six more weeks of winter isn't such a bad thing after all.
