I'm in the northern suburbs of Chicago and yes, we've been having very cold temps here these past two days. Sunday, it was 50 and raining all day. Then, the temps dropped 30 degrees and we had ice all over the place. I had my mom here for the day, who has Alzheimer's...what a day! between feeling like crap and trying to deal with all her demons, it was challenging, to say the least! Now the cold, cold temps and snow. I am blessed, however, that I can work at home. Just have to keep my dogs happy and take them out to play...could be alot worse, I suppose.
Thanks for the support, girls! I do appreciate it!
I'm from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and it is so cold. The temp is -19 degrees with wind chills 30 to 40 below. A lot of the schools have closed due to the temps. My girls were not that lucky though so I dressed them as warm as I good (not easy with a 15 year old) and sent them to school. They have it good though, I drop them off at school and their dad picks them up. I just feel sorry for the poor kids at the bus stops. My middle daughter had her Christmas concert tonight and I really didn't want to go but I could never dissapoint her. It was a nice concert but I'm paying for it right now, I am so cold and sore. I am sitting all bundled up and just can't seem to get warm. The hubby said today that we will move to a warmer place when we retire (if I make it that long), I'm thinking Hawaii .
Stay warm everyone!
I have: Fibromyalgia, CFS, Holt-Oram Syndrome, nasal allergies, depression
