Boring Days Of Winter!

It has been a few days since I posted last. I just haven't been feeling up to doing anything. Winter keeps going on and on. We have so much snow this year. The temps have been really low,in the negatives. So it doesn't leave a lot to do. The kids hate being kept inside,but its just been too cold to play out doors. Living in a small town like we do,there isn't awhole lot to indoors.

So I have been painting along and trying to keep myself busy inside here. NO fun for the kids though.

Old photos

Today is a wintery day,perfect day for looking at old photos. I have this digital photo frame sitting on my table awaiting pictures!! I decided to tackle that job today. I am finding it hard to pick through all the hundreds of photos we have taken. Some are funny and so are just so sad. I can't believe how many people I have taken pictures of that have passed on. I will be sure to add those special ones. Friends that know me think I am crazy with my camera,taking it everywhere I go. Just incase I have a moment to take some pictures. Looking back on these pictures of those who passed on,I am glad that I took the time to bring my camera. I am so glad that I have all these memories of my children growing up and my friends kids getting older. So...when you have the chance....Take those photos!!!! I am glad I did!

SNOW For Sale

What happened to "global warming"? I think it missed the U.P.!!! Seeings it was -22 degrees. We have a total of 157 inches of snow. Last Thursday we had 123 inches.....That is a whole lot of snow in a weeks time. The snow banks are just crazy here. And I don't think Spring is going to come this year...I miss camping and all the things that summer brings...

Just incase there are people out there reading that don't have snow and want to see....I will post some picutes just for you. I could send some your way to if you'd like!!!! Just leave your address and name in the comment box at the end of the post!!!

18 Years Ago....

Tomorrow will be 18 years that Nick and I have been together. Dang! 18 looong years!!! Looking back through all those years and it just amazes me. I never thought once being a teenager would end up spending so much time with one person. I had NO plans on even going out with him. He was so easy to talk to and funny. Remembering we would be on the phone for hours.

Him and I have overcome so many obtacles. Jealousy,money issues,having children so young....And here we stand 18 years later,stronger than ever. He is my best friend,the one person I can turn to no matter what happens. He has been there through everything with me and has never turned his back.

Thank you Nick!!! Happy 18 years and hopefully there will be many more!!!

Why I Hate WInter!!!

There are many reason's I hate winter!!! The biggest reason being,idiot drivers! We live in the snow capital of the US.It is winter here almost 9 months out of the year.Once it starts snowing,it doesn't stop until spring...Okay so July!!!

So,on the radio the weather man comes across,telling us there is a storm warning...blah blah blah!!! Nothing new!! But all the idiot drivers get in there cars and feel the need to go to Walmart! Not because they need to get to and from work,they NEED to go to Walmart!!!

In the middle of the highway is a wreck.....Some dumb ass was driving in the middle of the two lanes or something like that. Of course a person from another country!!! (Sorry if you come from another country,but learn to drive before you get behind the wheel!!!!) So here was a pile up of cars when we come DOWN HILL around a SHARP corner....We started sliding and the back end is going all over.....I think we slid all the way down the hill sideways!!! I was so scared....Then we come to the cop car...Sitting in the middle of the road with the officer just sitting there...HELLO MOVE THE HELL OUTTA THE WAY!!!

We made it down the hill with no injuries...Just messy pants!!!Hehee!!! Kidding!!! So....I am not moving outta my yard until the snow is gone!!!!

Drive carefully!!!

Thinking About Spring!

Today the sun was shining,it wasn't snowing.Just a beautiful day. I spent the day trying to catch up on laundry. No one ever has anything to wear,but I always have a laundry room FULL of laundry!!! Where does it all come from!?

As I am doing the laundry,I am thinking about all the stuff I could be doing outside if there were no snowbanks. I could be repainting the shutters that are in need of paint. The porch needs to be scraped and repainted. And I am so worried about my garden wondering if all the plants that I had planted are going to come back. I can't wait to start spring cleaning my yard and watching the flowers bloom. I have a few jobs to take care of this spring and I can't wait!

Until then,I will daydream about being out camping and sitting around the fire pit put in the yard,laying on the ground outside on a summer night watching the stars.

What To Do Today

It is a cold one again today! The cold is nothing new but I am just wishing spring could be here! Seeings that isn't happening for a few more months,I have to find different things to do on the really cold days to keep me busy and out of the cupboards! So....All that is left to do is paint!!! I am growing tired of painting! But stupid me decided to redo the rooms upstairs.

And being a boring Sunday...I painted the day away. I finished the hallway and the closet. Did some more in Coleton's room and did some in my room. I wasn't planning on painting my bedroom so soon,but I found this awsome green color. I painted the hall closet that green because I am turning it into a little office space.I like the color so much that I started painting my bedroom. So...I guess I am painting my room!!

Don't worry I will post pictures as soon as I am done with it all!

Wintery Days

It was the coldest 25 degree day I ventured out in. We decided to take the kids sledding in Hancock today. That wind was so darn cold! The kids loved it,but man it sure was a cold one. I am still slightly afraid to go down the hill yet this year. Its strange how an adult is there telling the kids not to be afraid,they will love it. And here I am petrified of the darn hill!

So,while the kids and the husbands went up and down the hill,Jen and I took Nikiah for a walk around the little town to keep in with my New Years resolution. By the time we got back the kids were ready to call it quits. We had a good time even though the weather was chilly!

Keep Warm!

Happy New Year!!

I posted earlier about ringing in the New Year,something went wrong with the post.So here I am trying to remember what I wrote.

We had a blast New Years Eve. Started out with dinner at the Pilgrim River.The food was done just right. After dinner we went to the DT and ended our night like usual at The Uphill. We drank more than we should have and danced the night away. Everyone seemed to gravitate over to where we were. A lot of laughing...The best way to ring in the New Year!

With that said,now I need to concentrate on the New Year,saying goodbye to 2008. 2008 went out with a bang and alot of great memories in hopes of many more new ones for 2009. And last but not least...Those pesky resolutions I made for the new year have to be followed...Hopefully I can write in 2010 on how great I did in 2009!!!
