Tidbits from the past week or so

The blog police(you know who you are!) pointed out to me yesterday that it has been a couple weeks since I updated my blog. So here is a quick recap of what we have been up to the past couple of weeks.

~Two Saturdays ago we had one of the worst snowstorms I can remember! I think we ended up with 15inches of snow! We usually do not shovel the driveway unless it is difficult to get up and down (hey I am a patient person in that respect!) but the snow definitely required shoveling. Dan had to work over the weekend so yours truly ended up shoveling. I also ended up on the couch most of Sunday suffering from a backache. I heard on the news the average weight of a shovel full of snow is 10lbs and I can't tell you how many 10lbs I shoveled! I pray this is the last major snowstorm of the winter. After all spring starts tommorow! Of course that means absolutely zip, zero, nada here!

~The boys are all signed up for spring soccer! Just the word "spring" gets me excited! Who cares if for the first few games I will probably be huddled underneath a blanket! I can't wait to see the boys play again!

~Dan has a staph infection in his foot, I had to pick Ethan up from school today because of a bad headache, and oh yeah the dog has thrown up three times today!

~Last night we went to mother and son bingo night at the school. We had dinner and the boys played bingo. They had a drawing for 5 nice gift baskets for the moms. No I didn't win but the boys won bingo a couple times a piece. It was fun night!

~My sister and Brain are coming in this weekend for Easter! They are bringing their new little puppy Palmer with them. We are going to go to Powerflex on Saturday morning. Then we will color eggs with the boys on Saturday night.

~In one month we will be having my sister's bridal shower at a local Italian restaurant. This is our first big event leading up to the big day! Some of our out of town family is coming in for the shower so I am really looking forward to it!

There you have it in a nutshell. Nothing too exciting but I needed to post. Now I need to go stir my chicken tortilla soup for dinner!

15 INCHES of snow - not FEET! That would be insane!!!

Well it felt like 15ft shoveling it! Bad typo but I got your attention!

Living in Georgia...I can't even begin to understand that amount of snow! I am VERY impressed that you shoveled it at all!
