Weekend Rewind....


We have been out of school for two straight weeks!!!  Some bits and pieces....
It started snowing February 16th and the temps fell below zero and winter finally arrived.  Earlier we have had a very mild winter.  The temps were in the 50s and 60s and then WOW!! it hit.  The snow was beautiful and I could have sit for hours and just watched-so peaceful and so quiet.  I know many are thinking--out of school for how long?  how much snow did you get?  Well, about 14+ inches of snow but the temps were so cold our VDOT had great difficulty keeping the roads clear and clean.  On Tuesday, hub called and daughter's finance had an accident on his way to work.  Thankful he was okay, and hub was there to help. We aren't use to dealing with all this much snow at one time.

So what have I been doing?? I have kept grandsons a few days-played men, Star Wars, watched cartoons, cleaned, read books, and shoveled , played some more, cleaned, and shoveled, and just a never ending…

Glad to be joining.  It has been awhile and I have surely missed it.  Thanks Joyce!

1. When did you last have to interact, either by phone or in person, with someone in a government run agency? On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate the experience? (10 being fabulous and 1 being pass the Tylenol)
Just last month.  I rate this experience a 6, the person on the other end probably a 1 with two Tylenols.
2. The current governor of Wisconsin is considering a run for President next time around. Walker attended Marquette University, but never graduated. In terms ofany candidate running for the office of President (not asking here if you agree or disagree with Scott Walker's politics) would the lack of a college degree influence your vote or no? Would that be a factor in your support of any candidate running for public office, even a role less weighty than President? Oh gosh, I don't really know.  I know some people who have attended college and have not a lick of common sense and I …

Yep, I hit publish instead of save earlier....

I usually recap my weekend and week  but was kinda busy last night so....I have opted for this--

Hello Out There

We have had a very mild winter.  The temps have been warmish and no snow.  Usually we have missed around 10 school days by now.  So now it begins to snow....


and the temps have plummeted!!

I have a Kindergartener who loves to read!!  I am so thrilled about this.

He is in the accelerator reading program.  There are some days when he dislikes reading (as all kids do) but mostly he enjoys it.

He was also chosen Valentine King of his class...
I just love the smile on his face!

Our county is closed today so I have had these two at my house....


I have a feeling they may spend the night tonight.....

This weekend I purchased my mother-of-the  bride dress.  Glad I was able to find what I like-well, I found more than one dress I liked but....when trying them on-there was only a couple that I felt comfortable in.  Daughter was relieved-…
