i'm not sure that i'm your friend anymore because i'm so terrible at my blog. i'm sorry. i know that it's not a real excuse, but i've really been swamped at work and it's taking over my life. i hope you can forgive me and resume blowing kisses in my general direction.
here's a big update: it's spring! things have finally been melting and it's getting really warm. sometimes it's even above zero!
also, we get to see all of the nice stuff that was under the snow:
we had to put tin foil on our bedroom window because the sun rises so early (around 3:00 am) and doesn't set until late. soon we won't get any darkness at all. i'm still not accustomed to the darkness caused by the tin foil, though. sometimes i feel like a teenage boy dragging myself out of bed in the morning.
other than that, there's not a whole lot happening with us. i've been eating a lot of grapes the last few days and ian got a sunburn on his eyeballs. want to see it? okay.
