brrrrrr

What to do, what to do??? I cancelled my dentist appointment for today because of uncertain weather, lack of childcare & a conflicting time with Pella. Tomorrow is supposed to be even colder than today & that's the only time they could get me in until the end of February! I don't want to go out in that cold nor do I expect my friend to take out her children, drive 1/2 hour and watch my kids. If only my babysitter didn't go out of town! I hate that I'd have to cancel again...and I haven't been to the dentist since like last Feb! That would probably be the first time in my life going that long between appointments! Good thing my teeth are good...but I want them to stay that way! Especially with all the denture-wearers in the family! So I'll more than likely cancel but I hate it that they can't get me in sooner...unless of course I were to complain about something (I'm trying to think if I've had any issues in my mouth lately).

I forgot to mention yesterday about my boys' fascination with the snow plow! I think the truck must be a combo plow/salter type thing & the back sticks up. They saw it drive by (how they've missed it before is beyond me) and were CRACKING up!!! Oh boy, those 'southern' boys! LOL

I think I've become a hermit crab. I never want to leave my house. And it tends to sometimes make me a crab! It is so cold out. I miss days when I'd spontaneously take the kids to play at McDonalds & catch up with a friend. The days I wasn't afraid to go out because it was too cold. I never go anywhere besides church lately! I don't even go to the grocery store anymore unless its absolutely necessary. I guess we're saving money on buying things we don't need & on gas but it is really annoying to have no life outside of my four walls. My 'socialization' tends to be through facebook these days. How sad is that?

I had so much to catch up on with your blog here! I falling so far behind on blogs lately :(

I hate these cold snaps. It really does feel like your stuck in the house for days.

All the pics are so cute!

That new law is SO stupid! I have wondered how it will affect me. I'm hoping that the fabrics I buy will be tested?

Besides school (work) Facebook is my only socializing too!! So funny.

I completely understand the feeling--I feel like this time of year, we don't get out much...
Did your supervising teacher make it? I would't worry too much about the homeschool laws here...seriously. Our teacher never comes either.

Did you see the new Karen Kingsbury book that's out?? "The other side of Heaven" I think it's called...I got it from our library!

I could have written the last paragraph in this post. ;) Winter will end sometime, Jamie...it always does and when it does, life can resume as normal! :)

Could be worse, Jamie. You could still be in Mississippi!! No seriously, keep warm. I just saw on the news about how cold it is in your neck of the woods. Next time you feel stir crazy, take that time to thank God for such a cozy warm house and just enjoy the peace. And while you're at it, send some cold weather and sopme snow to Texas. We could use a little snow break right about now.

I have become a hermit too. We did make it to a new church on Sunday and it felt great. I do try and get out for a little bit with the dog each day. It helps to be away from the kids, the house, and work. Sometimes I have to go to "mommy meetings" (well that is what we tell the kids)the meetings are always held at Target or some other store lol. This week I haven't attended a "mommy meeting" because of the cold.

I am a hermit because I choose to be. We will start getting busy again when HEARTS starts next month.

Yup, life here in the midwest is all about being stuck in the house. And I'm living my life through Facebook, too. Hopefully it isn't that sad! ;-)
