Snow Day!

We got 11 inches of snow today. The last day of school before Christmas vacation was canceled. We are expecting more on Saturday night but how much is still up in the air. I should be weather woman -- you only have to be right 95 percent of the time to keep your job.

Three Things This Thursday

The challenge has been thrown by Michelle at Psalm 104:24 to post three random things on every Thursday. It can be recipes, craft ideas, good books ... whatever you want to write about.

So here is my contribution this week: Three things sitting on my computer desk.

1. An old cellphone I am sending to Cellphone Trade-Ins for a whopping $4.
2. National Geographic 3-D glasses (they belong to Jacob).
3. A stack of pictures to be added to a calender I have been coerced into making for my MIL. Which I am sure will be as graciously received as all of her other gifts with the very monotone "Oh, that's nice."

Not Me Monday!

I did not wake up this morning to no power and a windchill in the negative zone. I did not fall down the stairs for the second time in two weeks (at least this was the first part of the stairs, not the second because I like variety) I did not get a call as I was walking out the door to say school was delayed two hours. I did not drag my kids to MOPS -- which wasn't canceled -- because I was bringing food and a Secret Santa gift. I did not say an obscenity after I smashed my elbow on the new DVD stand my husband built for my car. I did not have the uncooked french toast casserole leak on my passenger seat down onto the backseat floor. And the person receiving my Secret Santa gift wasn't not there. I did not have all of these things happen on a day when I was working on less than five hours of sleep.

Yes, she is a Diva.

Just in case you thought otherwise ...

I think this may be the only time in three hours she bothered to lift her precious head up and acknowledge the humans around her.

But of course I did wait three hours to get a book signed, so who's the fool? In my defense, I got the book for free.

All I am saying is I think a sip or two of whiskey would have the same effect -- and you get more for your money: Cold Medicine

Where am I?

I had a conversation on Monday at MOPS with my group and I was talking to them about something in Michigan -- and I totally forgot I was IN Michigan. I was explaining to them like they'd have no clue. My body was there but apparently my mind transported back to Kentucky. Guess that's the hazard of moving every two years -- your brain never really knows where it is located.
