Well, wii survived the birthday wii-kend. You know, at our house, birthdays last more than just one day. Celebrations usually get stretched out for a few days, or in some cases an entire week. Will was sad for the fun to come to an end because of school today. It's okay though. We only have a four-day school week, so hopefully it will pass quickly. For all of us.
My week is terribly busy. I am generally pretty good about not overloading my schedule, but several major things happened to fall this week, and it couldn't be avoided. The blog may be a bit quiet because I'm just trying to stay on top of all that I have going on the next few days. I'm living for the weekend! John and I have a Valentine's date planned too, and I can't wait to tell you more about what we're going to do. So very excited about that.
It's snowing again this afternoon. I hiked this morning (6 miles--woohoo!) and it was beautiful outside. In fact, it was beautiful all weekend. Abbey and I ran some errands this afternoon and I was so excited because we didn't need to wear our coats. I've worn a coat everyday since October, I think. We got home about an hour before I had to get the other kids from school, and it felt like the temperature had dropped about 30 degrees. It was F-R-E-E-Z-I-N-G. About the time we got home from school it started snowing. I think we're only going to get an inch or two. I hope so anyway.
A bigger, stronger snowstorm is supposedly heading our way in a day or two. This one is supposedly going to bring "significant accumulation" to our area. We'll see. I got really tickled a couple of weeks ago when a friend in Arkansas blogged about how beserk everyone gets when the weatherman hints at snow. You'd think that living here where it snows a lot that people wouldn't freak out, but they actually do. The "panic-o-meter" is already inching to the right. We'll see. This is really not the week that I need a major snowstorm to hit.
Do you just love Hobby Lobby? Abbey and I went there this afternoon and got some stuff to make Valentine gifts for the kids' teachers. I'll post a photo once we get them finished, but I'm hoping they turn out really cute. That store inspires creativity in me. I kept wishing I had more time to walk around and get ideas! So fun.
Must go get dinner finished and start some homework. I hope your week is not as crazy as mine!
