High school girls basketball

The local girls basketball team is making a run for state this year. And because of that the kids don't have school tomorrow. Boy..I don't remember having school off unless the team really DID make it to the state championship game.

Oh man..I DO sound like my mother, next I'll be saying that *I* wore breadbags on my feet and had to walk uphill (both ways) to school everyday in 10' drifts. God..help me...

Pretty scary when..

the weather guy tells you on THURSDAY that in 2 days (Saturday & Sunday) we will be in a blizzard warning!! I found it VERY hard to believe yesterday while the kids & I were outside w/o coats on blowing bubbles and the kids were riding their scooters up/down the road. The weather was WONDERFUL! But believe it or not, for once, the weatherman was right. It has been sooo windy all day today and now it's starting to really lightly snow. I don't know how much snow we're actually going to get, but I think the wind is what the real concern is. Even a little tiny bit of snow makes visibility really difficult when the winds are blowing this hard. Amazing what a difference 24 hours can make.

Dh & I were going to take the kids to the movie today. One of the local churches where sponsoring a free movie day for families. The movie was "Barnyard". We took the kids to this movie several months ago, but we thought we'd take advantage of the free offer. We loaded everyone in the car. Braved the winds (no snow at this time) and drove to the theatre-only to find a sign on the door that said "Closed due to weather. "Barnyard" is rescheduled for next Saturday." Dh looked at me and said "Why didn't you call before hand?" I said "I did! Their answering machine said NOTHING about them being closed." We were very upset to say the least, they (theatre management) could of gotten off their asses and drove down to the theatre and put a change of plans on their answering machine rather then forcing parents to drag their kids outside on a really, really windy and cold day.

Felt like a bloggin'

Husbands can be such a pain in the a$$! If you have one, you know what I am talking about. If you don't have one, get a new pair of shoes instead.

Looks like the weather is going to be making a turn for the worst this weekend. YUCK!!

Back from vacation

We had a fantastic time with Grandma this last weekend!! We all came home very, very tired, but the kids wanted to do it again this morning (figures..lol).

Absolutely beautiful weather here in Nebraska today and for the rest of the week with temps in the 40-50°'s. You won't hear me complainin' (except for all the mud the kids and dogs will be tracking into the house because of the melting snow)!

Getting ready for a mini-vacation

And boy am I ready for it!! The kids & I are meeting my mom in Omaha tomorrow for a fun filled kiddo weekend. It should be fun!! Im a little bummed because it just so happens that this weekend is also State Wrestling Tournment in Omaha. UGH! So it'll be a busier then normal town. Thankfully I got a room at the hotel we usually go to, but the price was higher then normal. :(

Now I just wish 2 of my kids would go to bed so I can get the last minute things done around here and get to bed at a decent hour so we can get on the road by 9am.

Dh & I went to school conferences on Monday for the kids. They are all doing great in school and as I have said before, I must say it again..I am sooooo glad we fought and won this extra year of preschool. I do not regret it at all!! All 3 of them have matured (sp?) a lot the last 6 months. It is hard to believe the school year is 1/2 over!!

Winter is still in full swing here in NE. We got about 3" yesterday and overnight and it is still lightly snowing outside now. The temps are really suppose to warm up this weekend (into the lower 40's) so hopefully this new snow (and the stuff that's still here for end of December) will be gone soon, so the ice that is STILL there from end of December can start to melt. I don't know if I'll remember how to drive w/o ice?!

Oh dog sh!t!

We have 2 dogs which I love dearly (most of the time). Since we got all this snow (on top of ice and more ice) the dog shit is finally starting to surface with some warmer temps. God I hate dog shit. Everyday I scoop shit.
