I woke up to snowflakes. A few stuck to the ground, but they will melt soon as the temps are alread 32. Mentally just not prepared for this.
I'm fighting a cold and am worn out. Tomorrow I have to go back to Burlington- that long 70 mile drive, for the third time in less than two weeks. I will have to go alone, like I did last Monday. It is a draining trip.
I seem to have a case of the blah's. Have a hard time to motivate myself or even get excited over much. I hope I can snap out of this soon.
DD called the other day - very excited that all her courses have lined up in precision for her July graduation. She needed to fit in four semesters of French in basically two semesters and two sessions in the summer. The professor announced that they would be having the French trip that will equal the fourth semester and it would be after the first summer session. The trip to France is for six weeks and is more credits than just a normal sememster so not only will she have all her requirements, but get to spend six weeks in France, and have enough credits to have a minor in French. God is truly good.
She also announced she has dyed her hair black...that does not make me as thankful, but I know it will grow out, and she will be very sorry when it starts to look skunky at the roots.
DS rapped up his college Cross Country running season last Saturday and had another personal best time- 8k (5 miles) in 27:28 - so he was pretty happy since he is running with bursitus in his right hip.
Took the dog to the groomers yesterday. Should have brought him earlier as now he is quite short for the winter temps, but it just didn't work out well. Now I feel bad, but in truth we don't spend much time out side during this time of year.
Well gotta run, work, then prep for my Bible Study this afternoon, then will have to lead it. Never do I prep and teach the same day, but I just can't get my act together.
Morning All, from Montreal, where there were supposed to be flurries overnight, although I don't see anything remaining this morning. Still, it's only 3C (37F), chilly, but sunny at least.
Jen, there's no month worse than Nov. for a case of the "blahs". I hate Nov. no colour, no warmth, no special holidays (in Canada) nothing fun to do with the kids. That's why I chose to take my vacation in Nov. this year, and I'm counting down....3 days to go!
Happy Wednesday from Arkansas! Watching "Sunrise Earth" on Discovery HD while I do the laundry..... it's the one called Edge of the Atlantic from Cape Cod National Seashore. It's my favorite..... I love Cape Cod anyway and sitting in my warm den listening to the roar of the surf and watching the waves roll in...... HEAVEN!
I have stopped worrying about Thanksgiving..... my daughter took over 4 years ago when my surgery was the Monday after....... we all had such a fun time that she has done it ever since . A lot of her husband's family comes,too, and we all bring food and everyone talks and eats and laughs and eats and then eats some more.
Many of my friends seem to think that I have been "pushed out" of my role as hostess, but I just enjoy letting someone else have the hassle and my SIL is much more help than my DH ever has been.
Hello everyone, Busy day at work so I had a lot to do. One more day to go and I get my weekend, Friday and Saturday. So much to do these days. Have a great day Mates.
