Another night below zero...

My house is old and creaky in the winter...especially when the temp drops below zero. Since Saturday we have not even seen zero and the wind chills have gone as low as 30 below. My night times have been reminiscent of early motherhood..waking up in the night to check on the baby...the baby being the pipes and water. I pull myself out of bed a couple of times a night to run water and flush toilets. Ahhh, but no frozen pipes for me. (yet!) The temps are to get into the double digits within the next couple of days. Yes, spring is definitely on the way. In the meantime, I will continue to heat up my 'corn boy' and take him to bed with me. (Smile)
