the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Delicious morning sunshine

While temperatures reached almost 80 degrees last week, Utah maintained its reputation and hosted a nasty cold front yesterday featuring snow, sleet and absolute crud. This morning temperatures dipped below freezing. It’s the annual limbo. Both flip-flops and snow boots litter the entryway. Scarves, winter coats and light hoodies are draped over every piece of furniture in the living room.

When one of the girls asks, “Mom, is it going to be warm today?” I feel like I’m about to shake a magic eight ball before opening the weather map on my phone. Please oh please oh please let it say HELL YES INDEED.
