It’s cold, it’s dreary, and the days are short. You may be wondering if winter will ever end. Some people like winter; I’m not one of those people.
I don’t hate winter, but I’d be fine if winter only lasted one month.

It could happen, right?
Alright, so winter in the Midwest is never going to be like that, and with kids underfoot we need to find something to do to entertain them for the long, dreary, and cold days.

It only ended because I wanted my living room back.
