I live with them, and they live with me.

Thank you for your kind words, thoughts, and prayers over the past week. My worries have lessened a bit, and I am feeling more positive.

Last Friday was “white out” day at the elementary school: wear white and hope for snow. Snow was not in the forecast for the day, but amazingly it did snow about an inch. I think I was more excited about that little miracle than the kids were!

After a weekend of milder weather, we have returned to below-freezing temperatures and a cold wind.
Today is the perfect day for scented candles and cleaning the house.

Someone unearthed a string of white lights — for what, I do not know — and left them on the floor. They’ve been stepped on at least once. I’ve plugged them in a few times for the ambiance… and safety.

  1. I have lots of extra Christmas lights stuffed into boxes that I’m not going to use. Just thought I’d tell you in case you wanted some other wads of lights to plug in and let sit around. haha

  2. I also have random strings of lights. I picked them all up last night because grandma is coming over today….and she is all judgy.

  3. I guess someone wanted to give you an incentive to hang them (the lights). πŸ™‚
