I’m Repeating Myself

But it’s snowing again! It was too good to be true I guess. We got a few really nice days of warm weather, like 60 degree weather, and it was so nice to feel it. And we even had a week where one flake of snow did not fall, it was amazing! But then it snowed again on Friday, about 3 inches nothing major but then the rain came and added a nice layer of ice on top and boy was that nasty.

So now it’s snowing again and we woke up to Michael’s phone ringing at 6:15 calling him out to plow. The good part of this plowing thing is that it will help pay for our boat slip this summer. If the snow ever stops and we can get the boat in the water that is! We’ve got about 6” down already and it’s still coming down pretty heavily right now. They say it’s going to stop by 10am. But oh wait there’s more, we’re getting another storm just in time for tomorrow morning. Yay!

I got my birthday present a little early this year. After years of wanting to sign up I am finally registered for Karen Russell’s Photographer’s Workshop! I am so exited! It doesn’t start until May but I am just so excited to be taking it I don’t care when it is! I wish I had a more current camera but my old and trusty rebel will have to do.

I finally went out and got a new phone yesterday since I was eligible as of Valentine’s Day. I have been dying to get rid of my Blackberry storm since I got the thing two years ago! I got the Motorola Droid Global. I had my heart set on the iPhone but with $300 price tag I said no way seeing as I already got my bday present.  The Droid was $200 but with a $50 rebate card I had from Michael’s phone and a $50 gift card I had from Xmas it only cost me $100. Not too bad. Plus most of their apps are free, vs. having to pay for the iPhone apps! And of course I got a pink cover for it! I think it needs some bling tho.

Cards for Soldiers is keeping me very busy. If you are interested you can pop on over to my other blog here. I’m headed down to my scraproom to make some Easter cards today. Went to Michael’s to try to find some Easter papers yesterday with no luck so I’ll have to make due with what I can find in my scraps I guess since I am not leaving the house today!

I’ve made a promise to the boys and Michael that I’ll spend less time on the computer. I spending too much time on Facebook and playing way too much FarmVille and and not spending enough time with my family and that was a very bad thing. So if you don’t see me around FB that’s why, drop me an email if you want!

Speaking of family, my father-in-law was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. It’s cancer, the bad kind. So our family could really use some prayers right now if you could spare them. I’d really appreciate it. Thanks.

It’s Snowing AGAIN!!!

I can’t even tell you what  number storm this is but I think they said on the news that our average snowfall is about 42” for this time of the year and we’ve got about 67” so far. It’s still coming down although it’s now mixed with freezing rain right now. Yay!

Here’s a couple of photos I took awhile ago…


I am not sure my boys will see summer vacation or if I will see a paycheck since when the base closes I don’t get paid! LOL!

But whatever, I’m going to go make some cards for soldiers. Happy snowday!
