Daily Grind- 3/8/13

Good Morning Ladies! Sleepless morning- which is bad because I will be tired but good because I get a few free moments to get on the boards (especially since my phone is not working).

Jen- Delayed Congrats on the new job.

I have to work today. Then off to a wake (prayers and pixie dust needed. My DH’s friend from HS last her battle with cancer at 36. Her family, friends, and son will need a lot of prayers). Then Saturday and Sunday are non-stop as well with sports, two birthday parties, etc. Have a great weekend ladies!!

Thank you, Michelle. I'm so sorry to hear about your DH's friend. Scary scary stuff.

I haven't spoken to my mom this morning. They sent her home yesterday (after determining it was just an "attack"). I'll give her a call later.

We have about 8 inches on the ground and more coming at the rate of an inch or two an hour until around noon, but the school only has a 2 hour delay. Yeah, no, I don't think so. The (very very busy) street in front of my house is covered in snow, and no sidewalks have been plowed...yet, my house is too close for a bus and my kid is technically a walker. So not going to happen. If it clears up later, I'll go into work, but for right now, we're not going anywhere. Very bad call by the Superintendent.

So...DH is on his way home. Luckily, he's fewer than 10 miles away. For now, we're hunkering down. See what happens after it stops.

Danielle, wish I could help with your dinner this weekend.

Hope everyone is safe, warm, and healthy! Have a good day.

They finally realized that it was stupid to have school and canceled it. Boss called about 5 minutes after the reverse 911 and said to stay home. DH is here now and we're staying put!

Good morning ladies. No snow today....so it's off to work for me.

Thanks for all the responses about my dinner tomorrow. Everything is worked out, but now I have to head to Sam's Club tonight and I wasn't planning that in my schedule. Will have to make adjustments and just put in an extra late night. I'm over my tantrum.

I'm so happy. My oldest DS came home last night and told me he is going to prom. He was dead set against going, but decided it wouldn't be so bad. He asked the girl he wanted to go with and she said YES! I'm so glad he found the courage to ask her.

Anyway, here' my day:

Boys to school
Me to work
Lunch with 2 co-workers
Hopefully get out of work early
Run for wrapping paper & cards
Get 5 boys from the bus - we have 2 extras for the weekend (I must be nuts!)
Dinner?
Run to Sam's Club
Prep mac & cheese - will bake tomorrow
Get everything organized to take tomorrow - there's SO MUCH STUFF!

Jen - Hope your mom is doing better today
Reddy - Love the test track car
Nan - yeah for having DD home
Michelle - prayers to all of you. So very scary.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Good Morning!

Prayers and pixie dust to all those in need.

Michelle, prayers for DH's friends family and friends, such sad news.
Jennifer, glad your mom is okay.
Nan, your list makes me tired!
Reddy, I would prefer the heat to the 8 inches of white stuff!
Danielle, for DS going to prom, will you start working on convincing Julia to go to hers?

We have a snow day here to. Everyone is home, my boss called about 15 minutes before I was due at work and told me not to come in. As I couldn't get out of my driveway I told him I hadn't planned on being on time anyway.

So I am going to work on laundry, and play with paper!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Happy Birthday, Danielle!



So glad your DS is going to the prom, it would suck to regret not going in the future.

Glad to hear your mom is home and doing ok, Jen.... Good call on keeping Morgan home..
no cleared sidewalks, crappy roads, nope my kids wouldn't be walking either...
With our crap snow this week we didn't have a 2 hour delay or anything... they had standardized testing (round 1 of 2)... well, testing was to start at 8:45am... DS12 said they finally started at 10:45am when the last bus FINALLY arrived...

Danielle, good luck this weekend.. sorry you have an additional stop tonight but the kids will appreciate it all!!!

I'll take the high temps Reddy, send them my way!

Cheryl, enjoy Legally Blonde tonight!!! Rachel have a great performance!!!

Ok, off to get started on my day!

Afternoon ladies...

I'm back home after 5 days in WDW with Dad - we had a wonderful time, met up with two nephews, brother and SIL too. Dad was here for nine days before the WDW trip and we did a lot here too: went to the Keys, Everglades, Casino, shopping - it was a great trip!

So before we left WDW our HOA puts out a notice to make sure to keep our doors and windows locked, garage doors closed and alarms on for there had been a couple break ins. A little surprising since we live in a gated community with roving security. So...I'm going out to run an errand and my next door neighbor sees me and tells me, his place was broken into!! It happened while he was at HOME...sleeping!! First of all, he is in the USAF, is military police and has a German Shepard!!! He said neither he or the dog woke up. They stole his car, antiques and all of his electronics. Come to find out from him that two other break ins have happened on our street, during the day and when people are home!!! They are young guys, under the age of 22 and they are using force - unbelievable!!! Needless to say doors and windows are locked and the alarm system is on....

Hope everyone is doing well , will need to catch up on a couple weeks worth of posts to c what everyone has been up to.

Becky

Happy Birthday Danielle!

Stay Safe Becky!!! Keep your eyes open!

Snowed in today. No school, again. This is getting really old.

DD's birthday was yesterday but DH came home super late last night so we celebrated today. He won Daddy of the year award because I sent him to Georgetown Cupcakes before coming home. DD loves their show, DC cupcakes, so she was thrilled with her surprise.

Today we are shoveling out. DH is headed to the chiropractor and the store to get milk. Other than that we are chilling at home.
