Crazy last several weeks!!

WOW it's been awhile again! I had no intention of bailing on my blog but sometimes real life gets in the way of my fun. Who would of thought??!?

The good news is while I was MIA, I finally finished "The Crimson Petal & the White" by Michael Faber. It took me a little over 2 months to finish that 800+ page whopper. And IMHO, it could of easily been cut in almost 1/2 and could of been just as good. It was a great book, and I will recommend it to *some* people, but it's definately not a book for just anyone.

The kids & I also finsihed a couple books. "Fiddlesticks" by Beverly Lewis and "Knights at Dawn" by Mary Pope Osborne.

We had a brief beautiful snowfall the other morning. The biggest snowflakes I've ever seen. I wish I would of taken some pictures of the snow, because I don't know if I'll ever seen anything that beautiful again. But then again, Im not sure how good the pictures would of turned out, because of the 60 mph winds!!!

I've been working a lot (that's why I haven't been around). I worked at school 12 days last month, and worked for Matt 3 days. Consider the kids had 4 days off of school the month, and I was at their school volunteering 3 days. It was a CRAZY month. The weekends were there to recoop!!

I've been crazy, too. Glad I'm not the only one -- we can commiserate if we have the time!
