Where in the world are YOU?

It's been a long week, peeps. The Husband had a business trip, followed by a little ski vacation with his brothers. I begrudge him neither - that man continuously bends over backwards to let me go play with my girls. He lives to ski, and I am thrilled he gets to do it.

However, it will leave us home this weekend without him.

Which is hard.

The weekdays without him? We are used to that. We're pros, actually. But the weekends? The weekends are all about him. We rally around him, bask in his laughter, and make the most of our family time together. Friends are told no, phones are turned off, and emails are left unanswered. To say that we all live for the weekends would be a huge understatement.

If the weather were better this weekend, I might not feel so forlorn. But old man winter has reared his ugly head once again, and I find myself a wee bit melancholy.

So do me a solid, will you? Drop me a comment, tell me where in the world you are. Just your city and state. Or country. Or planet, if that's the case. I promise to not stalk you, send you anthrax, or demand you become my new BFF. I just thought it might be a fun little project this weekend for the kids and I to graph out the readers of this little old blawg. See where everyone is and map it out statistically.

Play along, won't you? Even if you hate to comment, indulge me this once? Pretty please?
