Winter Fun

The kids and I had off today because of the snow/ice storm......so we went spent some time outside trying to sled. There is more ice than snow really and the sledding isn't all that great.....but we persevered. We had lots of fun!!!! Now we are going to hang out and play some games.

Devastating News

I know I have asked for prayers for my daughter's friend Katianna. She was diagnosed with cancer in the Fall....it turned out to be a rare, aggressive, untreatable form of thyroid cancer. Katianna passed away over the weekend! I just have no words..........

Telling my daughter was one of the hardest things I have done as a Mom....we both just held each other and cried. How do you possibly help your child who is 9 understand the death of a friend.

Please pray for her family and hug your kids....you really never know!!!

What a Wednesday~

I don't have anything witty or wonderful to share today.....why??? I am soooooo tired! I only worked this morning...but it is open house week at the preschool where I work. So it was an endless trail of parents in to visit and wanting to chat....all while I was still trying to teach my class. I tried very hard to meet everyone's needs today, but it was really hard and I am so exhausted from it LOL.

Off to rest this evening!!

I am so happy the weekend is here!!! We don't have too much planned. I hope to continue my cleaning and organizing. We will probably go shopping for hubby's birthday gifts...he still isn't sure what he wants yet LOL.

Tomorrow is the Ravens playoff game!!! GO RAVENS!!!!!!!!

So not too exciting but at least we are all home and can hang out together.

Baby it's cold outside!!!

I am sitting here in front of the pellet stove, sipping a cup of tea and trying to thaw out. It is just bitterly cold here and I don't like it at all.

Thursday is normally my last day of work for the week. But I am going in to substitute for a few hours tomorrow. I would much rather just stay home and work on my deep cleaning/reorganizing projects. Oh well.

Please say a prayer for my daughter's friend Kati she is not doing well.

Starting the week off right!

I am off to a good start. My menu is planned for the week. I exercised this morning. And have gotten some deep cleaning done in the kitchen. Also attempting to reformat our old computer for the kids to use in the game room...so far so good with that.

I am making this Recipe: No-Knead Bread - New York Times today and some French Onion soup. It should hit the spot on this cold day.

Hopefully the rest of the week goes as well....I plan to keep a positive attitude...so that should help.

I feel like I have nothing good to write about. We are back to the grind here and it isn't fun. Work/school/activities...oh my!!!

I need to get motivated. Meal planning, organize around the house and a whole long to-do list.

I think I am in an after holiday funk!!!! Hoping it lifts soon.

Back to Reality

Well it is back to school for my kiddos today. I have one more day off before returning to work tomorrow. I have a bunch of errands that I need to get done today. We took the tree down last night. The house looks so bare....I need to redecorate. I do this every year...put the decorations back out, but change things around a bit.

We had a wonderful holiday break. Lots of relaxing and family time.....I am sad to see it end.

Only 2 more days of break


I am so enjoying the hanging out, no running around and no real schedule.....how will I ever return to reality!!!!!!!!!
