Nothing exciting, just literal pins and needles. All of the spring catalogs are arriving in the mail so that means lingering longer on the potty after going "number one" to plan my half of the expenditure of REI dividend points. Shall I get new shoes? Some new convertible pants? Bradie does need some galoshes as the drainage here is quite abysmal. Tax refunds, dividends and the impending spring. The only thorn here that keeps me humble is the flu season. Mothers of little children everywhere hold their breath.
