Weather is making me grumpy

I was suppose to be running the Winter Carnival Half Marathon this weekend but since it is only going to be a high of 7 degrees for the day I decided that it probably wouldn't be the smartest idea. The last two days here in Minneapolis has been great weather but yet again we are settling in for a cold spell for the next week. I am starting to think we need to get a winter home or know someone who has one!
Owen hasn't been in the best spirits either. The poor little guy has a terrible cold and is absolutely miserable and is kind of making me miserable and grumpy too!
On the brighter side - my training is going well and I feel like I am swimming faster, yet I do have some technique I need to work on. Coach Dan is great though and I love the workouts he gives me - it really helps to have things changed up so I don't get in a rut. I wish I could have him at every swim session to tell me what I need to work on!

It's a cold day here in Minnesota and since I didn't have to step outside for my workout Owen and I had a fun day inside.
Owen and I decided to first build a fort with the cushions from the couch but then I found the Superman outfit! A friend let us borrow the outfit from Halloween and I totally forgot we had it in his closet until today. I pulled it out for him and he was all about putting it on. He had a blast jumping on the cushions and pretending to be Superman. He was still wearing the outfit during lunch and told me that Superman was all done eating! We will see if Owen or Superman wakes up from his nap.
