Groundhog Day

I know we still have a few days to go but tonight I read Kade a book I got from the library, "Substitute Groundhog" by Pat Miller.  It's a cute little book.  The story tells of groundhog waking up sick the day before his big day.  The doctor tells him he has the flu and needs to stay in bed for two days.  Groundhog is a little concerned about that and decided to find someone to take his place.  After a few unsuccessful candidates he finds one, an armadillo from Texas.  Sadly the armadillo sees her shadow and there will be six more weeks of winter.  Groundhog ends up going to Texas with the armadillo because Spring is already there.

I really, REALLY hope the groundhog does not see his/her shadow on Monday.  I am SO ready for Spring.  I'm ready for nicer weather and to spring clean the house.  I'm sure there will be loads of trash and stuff going to Goodwill.

Keep your fingers crossed.

My Husband, the Hero

Taking the Trolley copy

I'm going to take a minute to brag.  On Friday Press, Ganey had a blood drive.  Not only can my wonderful husband donate a unit in 4 minutes and 20 seconds but he's O-.    He can literally save lives with his blood.  Not that we all can't but he can save everyone!  Way to go Babe!

Now That's Cold

The weather channel is currently reporting -14 degrees and with the wind chill it really feels like -31 degrees. With that the kids' schools are closed and they will be enjoying a four day weekend. Lucky them!
