It's cold here. Not average winter cold, but freeze your eyeballs and snot cold. Today's windchill was 40 below. Cold weather sucks. It freezes your brain and makes you do crazy things like book a last minute mini vacation to L.A. Ha! I'm so excited. We leave 4 weeks from today. $600 for two round trip tickets, 3 nights in a 4 star hotel on the beach and a rental car. Can't beat that. It'll be a happy (two weeks late) 4th anniversary present to ourselves. Better start using the self tanning lotion. Iowans are very pasty in the winter.
