A Different View

Thankfully, January is OVER!

Working 50+ hours a week is not fun. I work in the corporate world in which claims have to be filed according to statutes. These statutes have no flexibility. So when the year started, there were 300+ claims to be checked and not enough hours in the day. There were three of us working 10 hours a day, with the sixth day being 5-8 hours. Talk about TIRED! BUT goals were met and happiness was spread throughout the land.

During the chaos from work, a nasty little virus named “bronchitis” came for a visit. Unfortunately, it definitely out stayed it’s welcome. Having spent almost the entire month in the house, the bug was finally stomped and the family was set free.

Just when I thought the month could slip away into the abyss without further issues, I receive a phone call from my husband. He decided he wanted a different perspective…with the truck. Thankfully, both of them were fine and the truck runs great.

Thankfully, we can now focus on February…and make January a distant memory.

And so it begins

Waking up Monday morning to get the precious children ready for school only to look out the window and see this:

School went from being a two-hour delay to canceling as road conditions worsened throughout the morning. The life of a school student. Needless to say, the boys were quite happy to go back to bed.

I enjoy all four seasons and am usually ready for winter by the time the first snow settles on everything. But this time, though the snow is pretty and peaceful, I can do without the bitter winds which accompanied the snow. And then proceeded to hang around even after the snow melted.

Welcome Winter! Please make yourself at home. Lay your white blanket anywhere you wish. Ice belongs in the kitchen freezer and those mind-numbing winds can stay in the Artic.
