I realized yesterday that I was officially tired of winter. It came early this year-- usually I make it a week or two into February until this happens. Seattle and Oakland are looking mighty good as places to live when I get my kids off to college. One of the advantages of my soon-to-be nursing career is that there's a shortage of nurses everywhere-- even in places with decent weather.
