Happy Valentines/Snow Day!

It's that day of the year I used to dread, til I met B.  He's made this day special for me for the last 13 years!    He worked last night and is sleeping right now.  No surprises with this man, he's already told me that our Valentine's evening will include a trip to the jewelry store...YES!  And that's just one of the bazillion reasons I love him.

On other fronts, it's a Snow Day at  my work which means I can work from home in my pjs.   I have a tote bag full of things to do, and basically 4 days to do them since Monday is a holiday.  So, thank you mother nature and all the presidents for giving me this 4 day weekend!

The only downer is that I've been up since I got the "no school" phone call at 5:30 a.m.  I could have slept in...but my brain wouldn't let me!

So to recap my day so far....the love of my life is getting me a gift at a jewelry store later and I don't have to go back to my office til Tuesday and I'm in my pjs!

Happy Valentine's Day!

We're Going on a Road Trip

This weekend we are heading out to see my family.  Tonight I am preparing for the trip - mentally and physically.  It's a 4 hour drive each way and most of that is on the boring interstate.  Plus, it's always at least 10 degrees colder there, so even though we are going to be there less than 48 hours, I have to pack a ton of stuff.  Snowmobiling clothes for B, shopping and visiting clothes for me!  My dad's house is usually about 80 degrees, so I need short sleeves for inside and sweaters and warm clothes for everywhere else.

The last time we visited was at Christmas, so we have missed 2 birthdays and there is one coming up that we will celebrate.  Those gifts are in the entryway, ready to head out.  We are taking a tote full of stuff we borrowed from my sister 7 years ago, back to her and out of our hoarder room.  I'm not even sure what else I need to pack - at least 2 pair of boots (brown and black, of course), scarves and gloves.  It gets to the point where I just put everything I own in the back of our vehicle and take it.  B rolls his eyes and packs everything he needs in a Walmart bag. 

It is easier to pack in the warmer part of the year - but if you asked B, he'd tell you that I still take way too much even then!

No My Fingers Aren't Broken...

So, what's the excuse this time?  Why haven't I written in forever?  I don't know.  My fingers aren't broken.  Our computer is working.  I have had time to go on Facebook and all the other websites I surf on a daily basis.  I'm a slacker.  Make me stop!

Today was a snow day for the schools, so I got to work from home and I loved it!  Nothing like doing laundry while you are making a PreK survey online.  Running the dishwasher and entering assessment data is fabulous!  Can I have one of these days every week, please? 

The downside, B has to go to work regardless of the weather and today was a work day for him.  He just got home after his 12 hour shift and is now out moving snow and trying to find my vehicle.  Mind you it is still snowing, but if he doesn't do some of this now, it's going to take him twice as long in the morning to get going in the morning. 

It's really a beautiful, light, fluffy snow.  The kind you see in Christmas cards and movies.  The reality is shoveling, paying a plow driver, and slippery roads.  The good news, is it ends tonight and tomorrow it will just be a memory.  Until the weekend and the next promise of the snow!

Chat with you soon...I promise, for real this time!
