Rambling Update...

I would like to say first thing, "THANK YOU!" for all the prayers, support and sweet comments left on my last post. I feel blessed.


That being said, I feel like I need to update my last rambling monologue.

Well, it DID FINALLY SNOW. I left work Thursday afternoon to a rainfall of white. I hurried to the store to buy the needed supplies, you know the milk, bread and peanut butter, just in case the electricity went out. The store was CRAZY!!! Everyone having the same idea as me, I guess. I came home, got my camera out and took some pictures. It was BEAUTIFUL.



I then cooked Chicken Spaghetti for dinner. YUMMY!!! We watched the "Survivor." Loved it, because it is all returning players, so I already knew who to cheer for. LOVE Colby from 10 years ago in Australia.

Kevin went out to check the snow...still snowing. He and the kids throw a snowball at each other and then come back in. Plenty of time to play tomorrow, right? It is still coming down...
I woke up early to check the TV for school closings. Our school wasn't listed. I tried another channel, still not there. I went to the computer...NOPE. Surely there must be a mistake. This was like a bad joke on a mommy who didn't want to go to work, with two kids that certainly didn't want to go to school...

We had to bust a move...
We had to do all the stuff we didn't do the night before...
Jordan is mad, while writing names on Valentines. Doesn't help that he sees the schoolbus pass on the "clear" road. He huffs and puffs some more. Kayla decides there is no use in even fixing herself up and declares it a glasses, sweats, ponytail kind of day. (So thankful I made her do her homework last night!) I did the only thing I could in this kind of situation...I TOOK PICTURES FOR MY FRIENDS IN BLOGGYLAND!!! :)

This is my backyard...




Unfortunately this is the road that somehow forgot to freeze on country roads and bridges so school buses could not get through, therefore cancelling school and making my home a HAPPY home this Friday morning.


This is the picture of the four wheeler that caused the whole problem in the first place. I told my hubby it was his fault. (HAD TO BLAME SOMEONE!!!) Just like a woman who carries an umbrella, and therefore it doesn't rain. I told him, since he went to the camp and got the four wheeler, because the roads were going to be bad, that it is his fault the roads were clear. Sounded good to me! :)




Here is a picture of my happy campers. See Jordan is so mad, he isn't even wearing his coat. WAIT! Before you turn me in for being a bad mommy, the coat he wanted to wear was in his dad's truck. They are So HAPPY...




Well, life went on... we went to work and school. I was loaded down with teacher gifts. Nothing like feeling appreciated. Of course my family loved them all, for they were all different kinds of chocolate. For those who don't know, I'm allergic to chocolate, so like I said, MY KIDS WERE HAPPY! Maybe that made up just a little for the lack of snow today.
Oh, did I tell you, the snow was melted by the time they got home from school...
We then, went and took my in-laws their Valentines, because we weren't sure of our Saturday schedule. Roses for Grandma and Chocolates for Papa. Papa said he might give her a bite. :)
For all of you who have prayed for my Mother-in-law, THANKS!!! We appreciate the outpouring of love. She is doing well and is in good spirits. Kevin went with them to the specialist on Thursday. She has a surgery scheduled soon and radiation treatments will follow for now. The mass was small, the size of about half a thumbnail, which is good. However, they do have to go in and remove some more tissue around where it was. This is her second time around going through all of this, so she kind of knows what to expect. Yet, it is never an easy thing. I appreciate you continuing to keep her and the family in your prayers.
After we left the grandparent's house, we parted ways. Kevin and Jordan went to the basketball games, while Kayla and I did a little shopping, then stopped by for some cheese dip from our favorite Mexican restaurant and then curled up in the living room and watched "FAME."
I had been dying to see it. I remember sneaking around watching the show when I was younger, singing the theme song. However, I was kind of let down. Still loved the music and dancing, but I didn't think they let me really get to know the characters, like they did on the old show. So, I'm glad I watched it, for old time sake, and enjoyed a movie night with my favorite gal, but I probably won't buy it. Oh well...
I think I will end this rambling post with a confession. My Girl Scout cookies came in today. Please tell me that half a box is a serving size and meant to be eaten at one time. Oh well, they only come around once a year...
Well, friends, hope you have a beautiful weekend. All of you that still have snow on the ground, throw a snowball or two for me...
Blessings...

Sis,
Oh, I am so sorry for the K and J. When I saw it was heading your way, I just knew they would be excited about it. What a bummer. Tell them I was thinking about them during our two - 8 plus inch snows. The residue is about to melt off, with the exception of the piles where I uncovered the cars. Well, tomorrow is another day.

Love you all.

Sorry you didn't get your snow day. Bummer. Praying for your MIL. Yes, I totally believe that half a box is a serving. There are only two servings in a box of Girl Scout cookies. Totally rip off. LOL
Have a great weekend.

Praying for your mother in law! I thought about you a lot yesterday and wondered if your kids were getting snow. Sorry they did not get enough to stay out of school.
Hugs,

Thank you God that the mass was small!

Can't wait to see FAME.

Loving Survivor this season! Stephanie and Colby are my fave.

My kids were bummed about the snow, too. Didn't hang around long enough for any good fun.

And...

I love cheese dip. I think we need to plan a girls' get-together. You.Me.Kay...and cheese dip. Let's do it.

We had one of those snows last night ... pretty, but no snow on the road, which meant not enough to even sled. BUT, it was Friday night, so it made for a very productive (cleaning) Saturday.
