Still here

I know its been awhile since I’ve checked in.  There’s lots going on. We’ve been on the midst of all this winter weather that’s plaguing the south,  our loveable 7 year old can’t seem to catch a break in the health department (he’s now got the flu) and life has just generally been moving at the speed of a turtle. I’ll probably have some pictures to share in the upcoming days as we are supposed to get about 5 inches of snow. Until next time be well.

What a week!!!

This is a picture of my backyard takrn the day before yesterday. The snow was so pretty and really wasn’t that bad. For the most part we had prepared in advance for the weather. What we didn’t count on was the freezing rain and ice that came right on the heels of the snow totally freezing the perfectness of the snow. At my home we had 6 inches of snow and the kids had a blast. My husband did not. He’s a tow truck driver so he spent most of his time in the weather……freezing. The freezing rain did a major number on roads, trees, powerlines and life in general. We ended up without power for 36 hours. The first few hours were ok but as we got over the 24 hour mark people started going power crazy. My kids wanted to watch tv, I wanted to take my psyc test (which I did last night), and we all wanted the heat back on. As of early this morning there were still people in our area without power. I am happy that we are not in that number. Hope everyone elses week went better than mine. 🙂
