The Big Freeze
Jacob woke up at about 4 am. He wanted a dry diaper. That wouldn't have been too big a problem, but I couldn't fall back asleep. The wind outside is howling so ferociously. It is the wind carrying in the below freezing temperatures. I was laying in bed and I couldn't stop worrying about my chickens and keeping warm. So, I've been up for awhile. I cleaned the kitchen that my son was supposed to clean last night. I tried to start a fire. I just don't have enough pyromaniac in me to be too successful with that. I made cinnamon rolls. Got the pot roast and veggies in the crockpot. Started a load of laundry. Read my scriptures. Puttered around on the internet. I'm kind of tired now, but it's too late to go back to bed. Kermit wants to be up by 8:00, which means that I'll have to kick him out of the bed. Or maybe I just need to kick him. That's worked in the past. Nothing says "Turn off that dang alarm" like a quick kick under the sheets.
