Winter Wonderland

Hi everybody....geez another week has almost slipped up and past me by. It has been a busy week but that always seems to be the case with me. The first part of the week were typical work days. Went to work, came home and crashed. Same ole story, same ole song. But yesterday I ended up taking the day off from work because I was going to have to leave work early for my follow up eye appt. Anyhow, I stayed home and worked on training all day for work. Whew, what a relief to have that behind me. Went to my eye appt. and they gave me rave reviews on my I am good to go at least for another two months and then they want to see me again for another follow up. Just making sure that the 'flap' has healed completely by then.

Today I worked all day but ended up leaving about a hour early because it was snowing like crazy. It was a long and exhausting drive home, traffic was terrible and there were cars off the roads, just a mess. It took me over three hours to drive home this afternoon. Needless to say when I got home, I was to pooped to pop. Michael and I were the only ones here, so we had some soup and cheese and crackers and called it dinner. :) I am so blessed that he doesn't have to have a big huge meal everyday. I don't think I could physically do it if he did. Although I did get up and clean the kitchen and put out some fresh fruit that I picked up last night while we were out, and put out some big muffins for tomorrow morning breakfast for anyone that cares to partake.

Not sure what tomorrow holds as far as work is concerned. At this point I am going to try to go in if it doesn't do anything else tonight. But if it does, I might end up having to stay home and I really do need to be there if at all possible.

Looking forward to this weekend. I always enjoy three day weekends, but it is going to be very cold in the single digits so thinking we might be hanging around in the house this weekend, which wouldn't be a bad thing because I have quite a bit I could do. Tori has a cheer competition again this Saturday so will definitely go to that. Her last one for her Junior year. It's hard to believe she will be a senior soon.

Guess for now, I am going to run, go visit with Michael for a few more minutes and then I am going to hit the hay and call it a day. I hope you all have a pleasant evening.

Will be around to visit with you soon.

Hi Cindy, My same question. I can't imagine having to drive in the snow let alone the rain. Simple dinners are nice and we enjoy them. We have even had canned tomato soup and quesedillas. Have a safe weekend. Hugs

Hi Cindy! Wow - what a commute! That would be awful in the snow (& scary). I am glad your eyes are healing well & that you are doing so well. Still wish I had the nerve to do it, but I am a chicken. I think your simple dinner sounded wonderful! Have a blessed weekend, & make some time just for YOU! Hugs!

Hi Cindy,
Three hours getting home. What a mess that can be. I know how exhausting driving in snow is... as I have said before, I don't like it. Pretty but can be not kind. Have a good weekend and extra day off. :-)

Hi Cindy...I hope today is going well for you. So nice that it is Friday. I hope you will have a really enjoyable weekend. Packer game on Sunday. ;) Hey, I would be more than happy to share my template with you...I find it so much harder than shooting in the dark most of the time because I just don't have the time to really learn it. I'm not even sure what IT is called! lol This template took me days and days to get just right...but finally it came together. I started with the Sunflower can find the link at the bottom of the right hand column...and see what you think. But I know you are busy so if you wanted to start with what I have and make your own needed changes, just let me know. See you! :)

It's the weekend Cindy!! Yahoo!! I'm glad you made it home safely in the snow the other day. We haven't had much snow here since New Year's. We've had a light dusting but all the big mounds melted in that "heatwave" a couple weeks ago.

Enjoy your time away from work this weekend!!

Hugs xo
