Good morning, DDA!

Tia - I am glad to hear you are feeling better. Pains in the gut are nasty.

My Boston connections are back in the swing of all things normal. It amazes me that those north of us can handle the snow so easily and we struggle with a couple of inches!

Oh, Tia! I'm so sorry! I am sure glad that you are feeling better, now! Yikes!

Good morning, everyone! We are supposed to have quite a sunny day here, today. Unfortunately, the temperature isn't going to get above 32, so still pretty cold!

Tonight is closing night for Katie's play. It's been a really good thing for her! Her self-confidence has risen by leaps and bounds! Being the only sophomore in the cast was hard, at first, but she's made lots of new friends, and had a great experience!

we've survived! We lost electricity Friday and didn't get it back til late yesterday afternoon. House was 44 on Sunday morning. Someone plowed one house on our street and left the huge snow bank on the street trapping us here. We've got to find out if a town plow did it so we can talk to them to make sure doesn't happen again. We've had more snow in the past and never had anything like that happen. I'm actually looking forward to going to work today.



Hugs for everyone else. I'll try to post again tonight.

A few inches??? Don't you mean a few flakes falling from the sky??

Tia, I'm glad to hear that you are feeling better.

Hi Bernadette - Good luck resolving the plow issue.

Both you and Hal are in my prayers, Terry.

Bernadette- I'm glad you checked in! Brrr!!!! That sounds really cold!!! Good luck with the plow!

Terry - Prayers for you and Hal!

Our day, yesterday, that was supposed to be sunny, instead turned gray and snowy. Not a lot of snow, but it drifted down lazily all day long. Very frustrating when you've been promised the sun!!! I'm so ready for Spring!

Katie's show closed last night. I'm so proud of her and all the cast. They did so well, under very difficult circumstances. Now, to just get back into the groove of school and homework. Luckily, Katie's grades did ok. She'll have to do some hard work in a couple of classes, but nothing she can't handle!

Still very sore today and a little slow, though now as bad as yesterday when the 95 year old lady lapped me twice in the grocery store I was moving so slow. So far my kiddos are playing very well today (knock on wood) so hopefully that continues and I don't have to overdo it too much today.
Tia, I hope that you are much better now! I first read that a 95 year old lady slapped you twice at the grocery store. I'm glad that's not what it really was, though I'm sorry that you had to move so slowly.

Glynis, it was great hearing all your good news!

Terry, you and Hal are still in my thoughts and prayers.

We had barely any snow from the "huge storm" that they were predicting. I think it was 6" from about 4:00 pm Friday until early the next morning. It's almost all gone again now. I'm ready for spring!

I think that I'm going to get that Disney trip this summer! I still feel a little guilty about scheduling without Matthew, but hopefully, he'll be beginning his own adventure. I haven't made any reservations yet, but I need to soon.

I never did get Valentine cards ready to mail out. I did the ones that I needed for preschool, and I made up some little boxes of treats for my kids. Somehow time once again got away from me. I have been feeling better, though.

Sorry didn't mean to give the impression that we were still stuck. The town finally sent a backhoe to dig us out on Monday morning. We still need to talk to the highway dept to make sure it won't happen again-if one of their employees did it-or to the neighbors if one of them hired someone to do it. I still can't believe anyone would do it.

After driving Emma to school this morning I have to say I'm surprised the electric company could get us all back on line in 4 days. Downed trees in nearly every yard. Worse than a hurricane-hurricane winds with heavy wet snow on the trees.

Elin-I did think of you on Groundhog's Day! Wish he had been right when he said winter was over.

Tammi-Congrats on your retirement! Sounds like your kids are doing great. I was hoping to talk Joe into trying track-he would be good and seemed to love the 5K in California - but he won't do it.

Deb-glad everyone in your house seems to be feeling better. How's Colby's arm? All better now? OH...and I have to tell you Lizzy's latest report card was all As with one B+. A huge improvement over the Bs & Cs last 2 years. Huge improvement in her self esteem too.

Glynis-Congrats to Katie on the play and to Jacob on nearly being ready to begin his Eagle project. The Boy Scouts in our town have a very active troop. Joe LOVES it! This year they have at least 4 boys finishing their Eagle projects but I think they are at least 16.

Tia-Sorry to hear about your diverticulitis. Hope you're feeling even better today. I thought that was what I had this fall-my pain sounded a lot like what my sister had experienced but when I saw her she said my pain was too high. Now I'm thinking my problem was IBS. I was very worried about how I would feel in Disney in November but I actually felt great there. I guess I just need to walk 10+ miles a day to feel good-oh and to be stress free.

Beth-sounds like you're feeling better! When might you go to WDW this summer? We'll be there late August.

Debbie-forgot to ask you about your next trip. Do you think you'll stay at AoA? I've got a reservation for a suite in August before we switch to BWV on my new DVC points. I can't wait to see it when I go to Pop in May.

I think we're going to try AoA, too, but one of the Little Mermaid rooms. Now that we're down to four, we can fit in a standard room. I've booked three nights at AKL (August 19-22) for the end of the trip to celebrate Laura's 20th birthday. I haven't booked the beginning of the trip yet, and I haven't quite decided when we're going to arrive. I had a PIN that I had to use before 2/16 to book that I used for AKL, but it's not good on the Little Mermaid rooms. I've always wanted to try AKL, and I know that Laura will love it. When there were 5 of us, it was most definitely out of our price range. I still can't do the whole trip at a deluxe, but it will be fun to try it for a few nights.

It is very hard to figure out the timing for this trip. Laura will likely have a summer job, so it needs to be late in the summer. Miles is going to miss the first 2 weeks of cross country practice this way, so I hope that the coach will still let him be on the team. It will be his first year at the high school. We've discussed it, and he's willing to take the chance. Since we're going as late in the summer as we are, Laura wants to stay through her birthday. She starts classes on the 26th, and needs to move into the dorms before that. And we're driving, so that eats up another day and a half. It's going to be a whirlwind for sure! But it will be worth it!

Beth - Hooray for a Disney trip in the works! I love to hear all about the planning, so feel free to share anything!

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! We don't really do anything gift wise for the day. I am making a special meal with a surprise dessert for everyone, but that's about it! Alan and I will go out this weekend when the restaurants won't be quite so crazy!

I pinched a nerve in my neck 2 days ago, and am still suffering. Ugh! It hurts to turn my head or to look up or down. Not sure how I did it. I figure I'm getting so old my warranty must be expiring!
