Side Note:
For those who haven't figured it out, or haven't been here: The titles of most of the blogs here are song lyrics. If you google them, it should take you to the song and the song is good to listen to before, during, or after reading to help set the tone of the blog. I find music to be very cohesive with reading and writing.

They Learned Me Good. Uh-hyuck...

(For those who didn't get the Uh-hyuck, by the way, watch about the first 10 seconds.)

Moving along, good evening, all! I am quite tired this lovely and frigid evening. Its about 9° outside with a windchill of oh-my-gosh-I-can't-feel-my-fingers. I'm sitting at the computer contemplating taking a few (dozen) acetaminophen so that the aching in all my joints ceases...or I knock out for a few days, you know, whatever comes first. This weather across the US the last week is insane. I mean, here in the North Country it's normal and to be expected, but it is most definitely not supposed to be snowing in every other state. When Southern California gets snow, something is wrong. Global warming, Al Gore? Try global freezing-my-butt-off. Where's an aerosol can when I need it?
I've been taking a ton of classes at ACS, which I know I mentioned last post. I'm really enjoying them. Even today through the brief emotional moment discussing deployments, I felt much better and more educated. So, obviously, I took the logical next step: Signed up for four more classes! Woo! If I don't know almost everything there is to know after this, I'll at least feel like I do, right? Ha. Boost to my knowledgeable ego.
Speaking of that dreaded D-word again, Erik has been extra affectionate and easily downcast. This is not something I am used to. I don't mean to say that my husband is not affectionate to begin with, quite the contrary actually. Most people think we're mushy and silly. But this is random, long, soft hugs. It's sweet but it makes me a little sad when I see him sad or when he remembers he won't be here for something. (Today he realized he wouldn't be here for Heather's visit. He was looking forward to helping us make invitations for Carter's first birthday.) I love that I have a husband with a big heart. He's sentimental and loving and caring and I am spoiled and I know it.
His team is in the play-offs this year. I'm hoping they make it to the super bowl. We're going to go to his friend's house to watch the game this Saturday and I'm considering making him a Green Bay Packers cake for either this game, or waiting until Super Bowl if they make it and making it then. I know he'll appreciate it and it will give me a chance to try out my new decorating toys...Squee!
The cold is getting worse in here next to the window on the carpet-less floor, so I think I'm headed back to the couch to double up on blankets, chit chat with my dear hubby and probably, inevitably, fall asleep for the evening.
