Break out the flannels here in Michigan! Flannel sheets, one blanket, one quilt, one very tightly knit afghan, fleece nightie, makes a warm bed for the night. I slept a little better last night all cozy and warm under all of that. Our ... Read more

We are having a snowstorm now, with about an inch already sticking, so travel on the expressway will not be fun. It is a 100+ mile round trip, during rush hour both ways through Flint, so I am not thrilled, but DD needs to see this doctor. ... Read more
