Good Morning!

Prayers and pixie dust to all those in need.

Hope everyone is feeling better.

Nan, hope you accomplish your scrap goal.
Michelle, have a great day at work.

It is snowing, they have not treated my road as of yet. Need to decide if I am going to attempt to drive to work or not. It is supposed to change over to rain later, but I seriously do not like driving in this.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Morning,

I think the worst of my cold is behind me thank goodness!

Nan - sounds like you have an easy day today. I meant to tell you that we watched the ND vs. BAMA game in the River Roost bar at POR - lots of BAMA fans congregated there. I think I mentioned that DH's cousin WON two tickets to that game and hotel accomodations. Her seats were on the 40 yard line, 10 rows up from the field! DH was SOOOOOOO jealous!

Michelle and Reddy - have a good day at work
Cassey - be careful driving if you decide to go in - I hate driving in snow/ice, so glad I don't have to anymore!

Today
Order BCS Championship T-Shirts
Order vaca prints
Add new Disney pins to display
Write out checks for bills
Vacuum downstairs
Drop off shirt at cleaners
Drop off Goodwill
Grocery shop & lotto


Happy Wednesday!

Becky

Morning everyone! Woke up to the phone ringing at 5 a.m. to tell us there was a 2 hour school delay. Then I rolled over and went back to sleep. Woke again at 7:15 to say they had cancelled for the day! The boys are loving a good snow day! I, however, had to go to work. Looks like we will be getting 5 or 6 inches total.

Off to work
Call to check on my guys at home
Check on Camp Cadet dates & registration info for DS13 & his friend
Call to cancel DirectTV at my grandfather's house......sooo fed up with lousy service! (I will not let them talk me into staying, no matter how much they offer me). Will call to check on cable for him.
Home
No homework check tonight
Dinner????? Maybe toasted cheese sandwiches and tomato soup
Clean up scrap table and finish bagging pieces
Check list and pull pieces for epcot pieces that need finished
Spend some time with my guys

Hope everyone has a good day!!

Ugh, I would have loved a snow day! They didn't treat the roads AT ALL and we were expected to get the kids to school on time. Holy smokes, fishtailing all over the road in front of the school. MENTAL. I made it to my sister's house and stayed there for a while. The roads were better when I left, but everyone appeared to have had the same idea to wait, so the traffic was horrid. Anyhow, the important thing is that everyone I know and love is safe, including me

So, work today. Dinner is probably leftover chowder.

Becky, glad to hear you are feeling better.

Hope everyone has a good day!

Glad everyone is safe and sound. There have been a few days in the years my boys have been in school where I decided the weather was too bad for them to go even though there was school in session. I wrote their absence note saying they were not there due to the weather and they have excused them every time. DS13 was in a very minor bus accident in the bad weather when he was just in kindergarten. The school waited until the last minute to send them home and by then the roads were bad. Since that time I've decided I will have the final word on them staying home if I don't agree with the school's decision. Our new superintendent seems to be a lot more cautious than the last one. Haven't had to keep them home since she started making the decisions.

Hello Everyone!

We have the rain and ice issues here also. I'm worried about my son driving home from school. Luckily, he has a short route on a main road but I still worry.

I'm making tacos for dinner tonight-sent DH to the store.

Scrapbooking--I want to make a big finish in my New England 2010 vacation scrapbook by the end of the weekend. I love autumn but I'm sick to death of trees and leaves. I have an encyclopedia worth of leaf pictures.
I'd like to get these all done and cleaned up to start working on paper dolls.

Have a great day!

I have done that in the past. If I hadn't missed work on Monday, I may have stayed home today with her, but...where I work part-time, I get paid for when I work, you know? Our superintendent is usually better about it, but this storm was supposed to stop fairly early, so I think they thought they would just wait it out. They should have at least delayed.

Gotcha, Jennifer. I'm lucky I can leave the three of them home together (since my oldest turned 16 I've been ok with doing it) and my in-laws are right up the street if they need anything. I, too, work part time and only get paid when I'm there. Stinks that more employers don't understand the struggles of a working mom.

My Mom and I take trips almost every year. In October 2010 we did a New England fall foliage guided tour. Major Stops: Quechee sp?? Gorge in VT, White Mountains in New Hampshire (gorgeous!!), Kennebunkport, Boston & Freedom Trail Lexington and Concord, Plymouth Rock, Martha's Vineyard, New Port Rhode Island. I'm in Boston right now!! We loved New England, it was great--except for several days of very heavy rain while we were at Martha's Vineyard...we could barely see anything-I'd like to go back some day.
I can't get over how much stuff we saw in 10 days!
