Technically, it is just another lazy Sunday. I have the day off, before the long stretch begins. We were supposed to have our Christmas party today though and I had planned to go to church, but we are snowed in. I feel trapped.

I did get my drive shoveled out though. I hired a couple guys to take care of it all winter. God bless men with sturdy backs and determined spirits. My mother doesn't understand why I tipped them $40., for the whole winter. If I could afford more I would pay more. What is $120. to not have to worry about the snow. It is someone else's job and I don't have to fight the kids to help with it. I am already fighting them to do their chores and walk the dog. I can't handle more right now.

I wanted to move away just to avoid the snow. Depression was sinking in and making me desperate. I even contemplated that if only I had a man to take care of me. I laugh at that now. I am perfectly capable of being alone and being happy. What I really need is more money. That way I can hire someone to do those little things I could use help with.


Charles had his first competition yesterday. It made it in the paper and you can see one of his teammates in one of the photos.


I had been meaning to get Alex's hair cut and since we have been joking that she looks like Alice Cullen, we thought we would have a little fun. I need to have it touched up as it isn't as good as I had hoped. If you have not noticed that is the Cullen crest broach that Alice wears.


I have finally discovered Twilight. I watched the movie twice and decided to read the books. I sat down and read it in one sitting. I still wanted more so I read the teaser for the second book. Big mistakes, Stephenie Meyer really knows hows to build up the suspense. While I am waiting to get the second book, I have it on order, I found TwilightMoms to keep the obsession alive. Or at least sustain it until I get the next book.
