Desperate Time, Desperate Measures

The past three weeks have been kinda rough, what with the hurt back and whatnot. And this past weekend, we'd just about all had we could take of cold weather and a grumpy mom. So, we did the only logical thing TO do when in such a state: we got dressed and went to the nearest mall....which happens to be over an hour away, but that's neither here nor there.

Note: If you're on the hunt for mall celebrity status, all you need to do is hold hands with your one-year-old and go for a stroll--instant fame. Seriously, I thought we might need a bodyguard to keep all the adoring fans at bay.

And malls have apparently come a long way since I was a child, seeing as how they now come stocked with mini-carousels.

And now, looking back, I am so glad we made a break for it and got out of town while we could, especially considering that this is what we woke up to this morning:

The Libster was thrilled; the Mom...not so much.

But no worries, it's nothing that our ample supply of hot chocolate can't cure.

Oh, and if you have a minute today, you should check out my friend Emily Anderson's blog and her embrace the camera segment.....

Happy Thursday to you and you and you.
