Time keeps on ticking

The first month of the new year is already more than half over. I'd just like to get through winter quickly.

I'm finding myself disliking winter more and more each year. I've always said that I enjoy the change of seasons, and actually like living in Chicago, but lately, I've considered the idea of living in another state.

The only problem now is having a house that just won't sell. The housing market is entirely upside-down. Especially in our area.

But, the idea of uprooting ourselves from Illinois and settling down somewhere else has a bigger appeal these days, and it's not just about the weather. But that's an entirely different ball of wax that I just won't get into.

Unrelated -- fun things happening here. The boy is in the school's 3rd/4th/5th grade spelling bee this week. I'm going to see Naturally 7 coming up in the next couple weeks. The boy & his daddy will be going to see the Monster Trucks soon, I'll take the princess to see the Justin Bieber movie, and she'll be going with her daddy to the Daddy/Daughter dance at school.

We're also in the process of planning our family vacation, which I am looking forward to. The destination is per the boy's request and we are happy to oblige. How many kids actually ask to go see Mount Rushmore?
