Zeca has been waking up around 5 a.m. for the past several weeks and the lack of sleep is eroding my coping skills. We had a huge snow storm this weekend and the skies remain gray. It's been a hard winter and I am ready for the seasons to change. Right now, more than anything, I want to sit in the evening sun watching the kids play in the green grass while Luisa and I laugh and drink gin and tonics. How many months until I can have that?
