I grew up in California, but I grew up in the "cold and snowy" part of California, and it still wasn't as cold as the Yukon (or Illinois, for that matter XD .) However, we used a wood stove when I was a kid, with air vents to pump it through the house and my parents kept it in the low to mid 60's most of the time. My bedroom, though, if I wanted to close the door and have some privacy, was usually at least 10 degrees cooler than that. Oh, how I loved my down comforter!! My daughter asked me, today, if we could walk home from school. (There's snow on the ground that she wants to traipse through.) I kind of laughed and told her "we'll see." Yeah, I don't think it's happening. I draw the line at walking in wind chills that dip below zero F. I can't imagine biking in -31*!!!
Congrats on the positioning, Chapsie! I wish my OB actually palpated for positioning, but they rely too much on technology, so I have to wait for my u/s next week to find out how baby is doing, in terms of position. I'm very nervous that she's going to wind up breech, like my first baby, though I'm fairly certain I always feel hiccoughs in my pelvic region, so here's hoping... And I would totally love a belly massage, right about now. *wistful sigh*
Darnit. Those photos have me crying and my husband is working from home today... and apparently trying very hard to ignore my tears. ;)
