Hey there all of you in blogland. It's been forever since I posted, but that's really not that unusual.
I have read so many blogs over the past few weeks with people listing to-do lists, resolutions, etc and I just can't get myself to do that. It's too much of a commitment for me. Ick.
We had a great Christmas and so far a Happy New Year. Yes, I know it's only mid January. But, so far; so good.
Soon after Christmas we left for vacation to visit family in South Carolina. It was nice to get away from the freezing (and below) freezing temps and snow for a week. In SC we really didn't do much which was nice. As a matter of fact, my husband only left the house once. Go figure, it was so we could go to Cracker Barrel for our annual New Years Day tradition. We made sure the tradition continued even though we weren't home in northern Indiana.
Although it was great to get away from the winter here for a week, we got back the night before Blizzard '14 hit our area. Yep, we had about 18" of snow, blowing and drifting snow, record break temps (our high one day was like -13 or something similar). The weather put a dead stop to everything. Roads were closed, schools were closed, stores were closed and businesses were closed. Everything basically shut down. The kids were thrilled to get an extra 3 days of Christmas break though, that's for sure. And, if I'm being honest, it was nice to have a couple extra days off work for me too. It was; however, very hard to get back in the swing of things.
As I type this, I'm seeing snowflakes outside the window just flying around waiting to land. We're supposed to get more snow today, but not too much. I think maybe 1"-3". That's do-able compared to 18" from last week.
I hope 2014 is being good to you and yours.
Until next time.....
