We have SNOW in our forecast! I know for many of you that wouldn't be news, and for some of you it certainly wouldn't be GOOD news, but this IS San Antonio! We'll have freezing temps the next few nights and maybe two or three different forms of freezing precipitation. I wouldn't want it to last too long...but there's something very comforting about checking the stores of milk and bread, surveying the firewood, and thinking what we'll do with our time if we're snowed in. Okay, iced in. Can't imagine that any accumulation of snow around here would be enough to keep us from getting out of the driveway.
Meanwhile, The Papa is away on business in Las Vegas, where it's also snowing. One of these days I'm going to make a surprise trip to meet him on one of these trips. There's just something slightly fishy about all the business in Las Vegas and Hawaii, doncha think? Anyway, thankful for other burly males (my sons, silly!) to help keep us safe in his absence.
Grandson Sam spent a night in the hospital with serious asthma complications. We're rejoicing that he's now home and doing better.
My goodness, can it really be time to schedule senior pictures for Beth? She and her father and I had a little "meeting" this week to discuss graduation plans and such...this can't be possible!
And yes, it's also time for American Idol again. Yeah, we're some of the addicted. This year we'll be taping the episodes and watching on weekends since we've made a commitment to no TV during the school week. I'm slightly ashamed to say that AI was one of the considerations when we made this decision. If anything could have thrown us back the other way, this would have been it. But really, our results with no TV from Monday until Friday night have been even better and less traumatic than I ever expected, so no regrets here.
I got all the Kids Praise CDs uploaded to iTunes this week. Now waiting on "Music Machine" and "Bullfrogs and Butterflies" to arrive and then my nostalgic kids library will be almost complete. What fun!
Tomorrow--Navy Bean and Ham Soup. A staple of ours on election days, and welcome any time the weather is frosty. Dirk had Aubrey call to make sure we had everything we needed in case we can't leave for a day or two...happily I had just made a major shop at the commissary and we're good!
SOMEtime in the next few hours, hopefully, I'm going to go be with Steph G. as she delivers baby #3. This will be my second time with this sweet family, and I can hardly wait! (Evidently Steph CAN wait, since she was due Wednesday LOL) She's planning to liveblog the early labor, so go check it out at The Greenhouse.
Okay...back to three-hole-punching the week's worksheets...
