Can you hear me now?

I tried to call Chris from my cell phone & ask him a question. This is sort of the way the conversation went.
Chris "Hello"
Me "Hey Chris, do you want me to get you a chair too?"
Chris "Hello"
Me "Hey can you hear me"
Chris "Hello, I can't hear you, hellooooo"
Me "I can hear you, hello, hello hello"
Chris hangs up. I call him back, same thing except just hello, back & forth.
I text him & ask about the chair & tell him I will call him when I get outside the store. Fast forwarded to outside, it's the same thing again. I can hear him, but he just keeps repeating hello & I can't hear you. I try calling Retha, who is with me, & she can't hear me on the phone. So I decided I should take my phone into the Repair Center (found out about this place because of my dads phone). The mic went out on my phone & they replaced it even though I was out of warranty for 2 weeks.

Finished it Up

My boss at work lets us girls that like reading borrow her books once she's done reading them. I just finished this book up. It's a two in one book. First book wasn't real great, but second one was much better. I passed it onto the other big reader at work.

Snobby Locker Neighbor

We have lockers at work & while checking out the newly opened Samaritan Shop Thrift Store I ran across a locker set for only $1. When I showed my stuff to one of my co-workers, whose locker is right beside mine, she said "Well aren't you the snobby locker neighbor". LOL.

Memory Blood Drive

I've been reading for a long time & this is the second memorial blood drive for Hannah. It was held at the Lowell City Hall. Since I have a negative blood type & weigh over a certain amount I was recruited to do a two unit donation. They had some issues getting the needle in right & then issues w/ the plasma returning. So it took me an hour to do the donation. Bruise & all it's worth it though!

I love reading & am a fast reader so I enjoy the library. Both kids have struggled w/ reading, however they are doing better & actually like to read for fun now. Logan's school does a fun field trip if they meet their reading AR goal so that has really helped him. We have a ton of books here at home, but we do visit the library often. They were closed on President's Day, so we dropped off our books in the drop off box today.

Little Debbie Store

I usually make a trip to Gentry to visit the Little Debbie Store right before the kids have a birthday (goodie bag fillers) or when they had class parties. Usually end up over there right before a vacation too. You can't beat the prices & since most of their items freeze well we take advantage of it every so often.

Headin' to Huntsville

Seems like lately Momma/Daddy (mainly Momma) has been headin' to Lowell. We've not been to Huntsville in awhile & since I had picked her up some stuff from the last Hobby Lobby sales (3 weeks worth) I decided I should make some time & head over there one day. Going over is usually a whole day long thing & when you get busy it's hard to make plans to get over there. We always enjoy seeing them though.

One week

Wow what a difference a week makes. Last Thurs. we had -degree temps in the morning hours. It was so cold in fact that I boiled some water & we put some in a cup & threw it up into the air & it would almost completely disappear & turn into snow. This afternoon it is 70 while on the drive to pick up Logan from school.

Happy Valentines Day

I saw this idea in a Sunday paper. I don't recall the name of the little magazine it was in, Parade or something like that. You use your wedding ring & I checked out a book from the library that had that sonnet in it. I will admit that I did use a couple mini glue dots, because my ring kept falling forward before I could take the photo. I used this on the front of a card for Chris.
Here is what was waiting on the kids when they got home from school today. Even though they are really past the stuffed animal age they love stuffed animals still so I usually get them one for Valentines Day. I decorated their mailboxes from ones I got in the Target Dollar Spot & added a box of conversation hearts inside decorated up like an ipod. Logan ripped his open immediately :)

Still a snow covered street

So here we are up to snow day #10 this school year. Feb 2nd I made a post about the view south down our street. So decided I'd use a photo from yesterday of the view north up our street.

Is that a truck?

This is the truck all buried under the snow.

This is just UNREAL! It's still coming down strong too. We've probably gotten a couple inches (at least) since this was taken a couple hours ago.
Notice the guy walking in the background? Wonder where he got stuck or if he's just out for a morning stroll? Both these photos were taken in our front driveway.

Mailbox Craft

Retha & I got together & worked on some crafts while the guys watched the Super Bowl last night. This is what I made.

Clearing the drive

Steph decided to shovel the driveway. She borrowed Grandpa's shovel & got to work. She did a good job, til she broke the shovel.

Stir Crazy

Being snowed in is nice for a day maybe, but I'm beginning to get "stir crazy". LOL this happened tonight making dinner.

Winter Wonderland

I went out to get the mail & grab the paper. This is looking south, down our street (towards McClure). I'm standing at the mailbox in the road. You can see why they have called off school already for tomorrow.

Snow Day

Logan & I ventured out (for about 10 mins) to "play". WOW was it cold out. I filled a spray bottle w/ water & blue food coloring & attempted to write "Snow Day" in the snow. It wasn't great but fun non the less. I wrote his name & he sprayed the rest out & back inside we went to warm up. BRRRRRRRRRRR
