Sleet and then Snow

After getting what looks to be about 2-3 inches of sleet, we are now receiving the blizzard that the meterologists have been predicting all day and that will leave somewhere around 4-8 inches of snow. Only time will tell how accurate the prediction is.
I've asked Ray to bring home rented movies for us to watch for the next few days. One thing I've learned about getting snow in Oklahoma... be prepared to be confined to your home for more than just a few days.

I've said this before but.... you know when you go to Sonic too much when the carhop brings out your food and ask you if you got your hair cut.

I only bring this up because once again the carhop decided to talk to me in that "you are a regular so I can say this to you" kind of way. I now know their inside joke when people park on the outside spaces when it's pouring down rain. Like I didn't already know they'd rather us not get our order.

Hi, I'm normal.. and you are?

I always seem to be between the wrong people in line most places I go. I've had long one sided conversations about someone's illnesses which, oddly enough, led to the history of the town I live in. My part of the conversation was me acknowledging that he was speaking.

On one fine day at the post office, I had an old man next to me that was trying to strike up any kind of conversation he could while on the other side of me I had a young guy that kept answering him even though he was speaking to me. And the young guy wanted to talk about the government and politics. I'm not sure the post office was the place to strike up that type of convo.

Yesterday I was standing between an older lady who apparently wanted to stand extremely close to me and a biker bitch in front. Unfortunately I was too close to the biker trying to put some distance between me and the old lady. And this was bad because the biker was quite odorous. Not like body odor, but something else strange and nasty. Something I won't soon forget.

I bought a swiffer duster yesterday and I must say... I'm in love. I like that you throw the dust away. It really does work well.

Out come the trees

The Christmas trees are up or should I say out. I really don't have to do anything with them except get them out of the attic and plug them in. A little decorating here and there and "voila".

I must get some other things done today, bills, cleaning, laundry. I've been putting this stuff off and it's piling up!

It's all about the kids

Today's been a long day. We were up early to go to a soccer game and then the kids had guest over for the day. Another soccer game and then some of the kids were off to the movies. I watched a couple of movies today in between all the running around. Tomorrow will be more relaxing after one more early morning soccer game.

Not just a blogger, but a bloggee

I've just been reading the blogs this morning and one that I find interesting to read is Life (and death)... He's a malaysian doctor here in the US who's writings are humorous and interesting. It's hard to find a good blogger.

It's the day after Thanksgiving and the day after I had given myself permission to over eat since it was the National Holiday of "Stuffing". I do not plan on repeating the events of yesterday however. As delicious as it was, it was also miserable to feel that full.

Happy Turkey Day

Hope everyone is getting ready to sit around their tables with their families and enjoy the fixins. I know I'm going to and it's going to be delightful, delicious and just what this mom looks forward to.

Today is Caitlin's birthday. She has let everybody and their neighbor know about it. Exactly what I would do if I were 15. Happy Birthday, Caitlin!

Take that!!

Who doesn't love the fact that O.J.'s television special and books have all been cancelled? Yes! I read that all the books that had already been sent out would be recalled and "destroyed"!! Ha! Unfortunately he has already been paid over 3 million dollars.

Just bloggin'

I hear that November is National Blog month so I guess since I'm about 19 days too late.. I had better get with it. I just haven't had much to talk about except the occasional "my husband is taking a new job in Texas" story. And then "now he's not, at least for right for now, maybe later". I can't keep up so what would have been the point of publishing it.

Busy, busy busy.

I just finished helping Hayden with homework. We had to make a pop-up book about Egypt's leaders. As we were finishing up I realized that this was just "busy" work. I hate when teachers give busy work as a tool to get kids to retain information. Especially when the project takes hours to complete.

Night of the living dead.... literally

I had a night, a few days ago, where I don't remember getting into bed. I remember that I was tired and heading to bed but I was so tired that the next thing I remember is waking in the middle of the night sleeping on the wrong pillow. I have a certain pillow I use as I'm sure everyone does and this pillow was not it! And I was mad about that but it was too much effort to get the right pillow so I just went back to sleep. When I woke the next morning I tried to remember the events of the previous night that led me to the wrong pillow. Nothing. I can't remember pulling back the covers, or what was on tv, or setting my alarm, even though.... thank goodness I did that.
