    I miss the heat too, I’m more excited about no homework I actually drop to my knees and thank the good lord above, omg I hate open houses, do a grade a night for a week otherwise you can’t move through the school. ugh yes people loose their brains when driving through school zone and seriously at our middle school I don’t know how kids aren’t run over by cars. The kids run out and the cars drive fast. wow

    You nailed it this week!! They kept cutting to Plainfield on the news last night and got my son SO excited that he wouldn’t have school today. I kept telling him we would be lucky to get enough to warrant me hauling out the shovels but he wouldn’t listen because I’m not a meteorologist, nor do I play one on TV. Funny how my kid gets excited at the prospect of sleeping in, but doesn’t sleep a wink because he has to keep running to the window.

    I hope you are feeling better and that things are looking up in your family. {Hugs} for you!!

    You have such insight. I tell the young girls invest in a winery, believe me you will need it later.
