randoms :)

our life lately has strayed from the norm...
lots of snow means no school for ry...and no extra kids for me here to care for...
it's actually kind of nice, if you must know...tomorrow will begin the 2nd week of no school...

anyway, i'm kind of off with my days... it's OK tho... :) we'll have plenty of time to get back on... :)

this time, we had about 1 1/2 feet of snow... we're at 51 inches for the "season" so far. we're 3.8 inches away from the record... :) i think we just might beat it this week... they're calling for 5-8 inches on Tuesday night...and perhaps another storm coming this weekend...

part of me is sort of sick of the snow...but i really do love it... i think the only part that annoys me is shoveling... :) hehe :) the snow is heavy, and when you have as much as we do, you shovel and shovel...and you don't feel like you get anywhere... and, this time, there's ice underneath the snow... and we have a really long driveway (or so it seems when there's 1 1/2 ft. of snow)...

we lack a consistant schedule in many ways...we DO work hard at keeping K's schedule normed...we wake up, have breakfast, play, naptime for K, play/lunch/play, nap, play, eat....hen ready to go to bed... but it's OK...i kind of like life like this... :) since i don't have a specific topic to write about, i just feel like i have a bunch of random thoughts... i have those in my head all the time... :)

~K got a kiddie couch - The Backyardingans are all over it... it's so cute... she loves it... :) she takes a book and goes and sits on it to read...just like a big girl... :) she spends much of her play time playing with it... :)

~i am strangely addicted to shows like Jersey Shore and Teen Mom... :) they are such interesting shows....

~i am not really sure that i can claim a "home" location (northerner?)... my dad was in the military and we lived all over... anyway, our friends, who are from TN (southerners) gave us a Fry Daddy a few years ago for xmas... it's a running joke about us "yanks" not being familiar with a frying machine... :) we've used it 4 times...but i took it out tonight and made some fried broccoli and my own mozzarella sticks... all in celebration of our "appetizer dinner" on Super Bowl Sunday... :) terribly fattening but YUM! :)

~i'm glad the Saints won... i really like the storyline of the underdog coming out on top... :) it's going to be one heck of a Mardi Gras... :)

~i have some really wonderful friends... :) i'm really blessed... :)

~lately, when K is whining/crying (usually when she's tired), she's added a funny ending to her whine... it goes something like this.... "wahhhhhhh rah rah rah rah rahhhhh" :) maybe she's listened to too much Lady Gaga with her mom :)

~our dogs really need hair cuts and a bath, but i think it'd be so cruel to shave them when there is 1 1/2 ft. of snow outside...and there's more to come... but they really smell...

~i would really like to read a book right now... i've got a few that i'd like to read...but i usually fall asleep before i get a few pages into them...

~when i wake up in the morning, usually to K's voice calling, i dream about sleeping in... but i get up anyway... i wonder if i could sleep in again or if i'd just miss hanging out and having breakfast with my girl...

~i need to do some cleaning around here... the kitchen and spare bedroom are at the top of my list.... but i'm not really motivated...

~i feel really bad for the dept. of transportation here... they've been working 12 hr. shifts around the clock for 10 days now... the snow just keeps coming...

~the birds are so cute in the snow... they are really hungry, so i've left some seed out on a plate for them... they come hopping up and eat it right by our sliding door... so cute...

~i need to make a committment to going to bed earlier... i really do...

~i got a shot last week for tetanus and whooping cough...had a weird reaction... now i have a nice knot on my arm...and it's itchy...a tad bit swollen... it used to be raised, warm, and swollen...wonder what's going on...

~we should really start looking for a church... i miss it...

~i love the way it's almost completely silent outside when it snows... amazing & peaceful... :)

~i am so thankful for everything that we have in life... there is really a lot of suffering out there among the human race....we're truly blessed...


*meal plan will come tomorrow... :)*

I too need to do some cleaning, but I'm not motivated. It snowed here last night, but we didn't get near the snow you guys did...So, our snow is probably what you're going to get on Tuesday. The district we live in has school today, but most of the districts around here (including the Wichita district) are out. The mom of the kids I baby-sit actually teaches for a local private school, and they're out. So, no kids today....And, I second your desire to find a church. We have a great church we belong to here, and we've spiritually grown 10-fold since being there :)
