January 15, 2009

So here it is, the middle of January and no updates from me all month. Do you know why?


I go to work every day. (if there is school that is) School started back on January 5. January 6 we were cancelled because of ice. Back to work on the 7th. Today? No school because of frigid temps. No ice. No snow. But way below zero wind chills. Tomorrow is still undecided. Monday will be a holiday, so no school then.

We have made a couple of trips to the airport. One to drop off my mom, who took her first flight ever. Solo, at age 65. She flew off to visit her sister and enjoyed it very much. Another trip was to pick up the wife of my husband's cousin. The cousin had thought the flight arrived at 12 midnight and his wife arrived at 12 noon. He is several hours away and was still at work. So we picked her up and brought her here until he could get away. Next week we will go back to the airport again to pick up my mom.

I have not been shopping at all except for one or two trips to the grocery store for much needed items. I have gift cards from Christmas but have no desire to go to the stores. I think I am in full hibernation mode. I just want to stay in my house in my jammies and watch TV and play on my computer.

Today's plan is to type a few more chapters of my Dad's book and get some pictures scanned and edited for that. We have a hopeful completion date for March 30(ish). Dad is still writing but hopes to be done by next week when he comes to pick Mom up. Then it is up to me to get everything typed and pictures ready so we can get everything compiled and submitted. We hope to have the completed books in hand by June 1.

This weekend is the final deer hunting weekend of the season so we will be traveling to my son's house for me to play with the kids and hubby to go to the woods if it isn't too cold. Then back to the same old, same old.

January 1, 2009

Had a nice New Year's Eve. My son, daughter-in-law and my baby grandson came and spent the night. We had a nice dinner at Applebees and then played Wii Monopoly most of the evening. Drank some nice wine and celebrated midnight with a champagne toast. We were all in bed by 12:30. We got up late this morning and had bacon and pancakes for breakfast. Played another round of Monopoly and some Wii Fit. The baby and I did the hula hoop part and everyone else thought it would be fun to video tape me. You couldn't see the baby in the tape. Just the back of my body. The kids all left to do some shopping on their way home and hubby and I are just hanging around for the rest of the day trying not to do anything that takes any exertion.

Happy New Year!!!!
