Preparing for the big freeze......

.....or at least it was supposed to be. Saw this morning on the WKYT Blog it was changed from a winter storm watch to an advisory. Still, a little ice is terrible on the road. The kids are still asleep and I miss them, maybe I'll go wake them up!!!

On another note, there was NO SNOW AGAIN TODAY-after posting a winter weather advisory!!!!!! What's up with these weather people??

This new Melissa Frances line is gorgeous......

.....especially if you have babies!!!! It would be great for victorian style pages too!!!!!! (esp. distressed a little bit.) GOTTA HAVE IT!!!!! Gonna have to get a second job to keep up this habit. See more about it at Melissa Frances Blog.

Snowy day at home....

well, it's isn't terribly snowy, but it's about all we're going to get I think. I would love to have just ONE BIG SNOW......I guess it's global warming, or the end of time, or something.... Sorry to have ranted so much yesterday, but that boy at karate really aggravates me. He's got to be like 11 or 12 yo, and should know better. His brother acts nothing like him, in fact he's very considerate of the other students. I don't know what happened to him, I just don't think it's fair to all of the other kids who are there to learn, and spend their money to learn the sport.

I'm off my high horse now, I'm going to try and catch up on the things I intended to do yesterday.

Another Monday down.......

Didn't get much done today, although I woke up with big plans. I cooked the kids a big breakfast and started on the MOUNTAIN of laundry that had piled up during the boil water advisory.........then Mom called and I had to go to her house and it disrupted the whole day. On the brighter side, the kids were so happy to see her. I didn't get home til 2pm so it was all I could do to get the kids bathed, myself showered, and get to karate on time. karate, we had a fill in teacher, and our "prize" student really turned on. He was turning cartwheels and jumping and hopping around. I can't stand it. He was next to Carlee in line and I was afraid he would cartwheel right on top of her, and he's so much bigger than she is. The teacher tried his best to keep him in line, but whenever he is there and his mother or grandmother isn't he is just uncontrollable. Then he got mad about losing his sparring match and threw his equipment (or should I say the dojo's equipment). I've just about had it with him, I'm going to have to say something if he doesn't straighten up a little..............

SO SLEEPY.........

I HATE WORK....I know I should be thankful for a great job, with great hours,I just don't like being away from my kids. If I'm gone just one day I feel like I've missed so much. I missed Asa beating his first Guitar Hero song. I know that isn't much, but he was SO EXCITED!!!!! I'll never get to see it. I just want to be there for everything. I can't understand how parents can spend so much time away from their kids. The only time I was ever away from either of mine was leaving Asa when I had to go to the hospital to have Carlee...and that about killed me. Well, guess you're tired of the ramblings of a tired, tired, Mom, maybe tomorrow will be better.

Another COLD DAY..

First of all-Happy Birthday to Sissy-she's like 92 or something today (kidding), anyway Happy Bday Sis!!!!!

It's SO COLD here today, and having the window open in the bedroom to dissipate the paint fumes isn't helping-we did get a little snow tho, the first real snow of the year. But its still only about an inch, think CB is right about the snowdome.

Back to MM to try and win something!!!!

The answer my friend, is blowin in the wind..........

.....or at least our shingles are. Last week's storm must have blown some of our shingles loose, and today's windy weather has blown those into the yard, where obviously they don't do much good. Guess we'll have to move the re-shingling project up a year sooner than we had planned, guess that's just how things go. At least we're healthy and happy, and shingles can be replaced.

'Nother Day

is gone. Asa got a new haircut-he looks two years older now!!!!! I'm glad the stormy weather is over. The kids did So GoOd when we had to wake them up to take them to the basement... they're so resilient. My BIL had three bundles of shingles he had to replace, of course they always have more wind than we do-but to the best of my knowledge we didn't see any damage from the wind here. We're very blessed. It did turn cold, but of course the 70 degree temps in Feb ObViOuSlY aren't normal, or we wouldn't have had the third most tornados ever in one day. Well, have to work tomorrow, need to zzzzzzzzzzzzz.
