Good morning. The news is talking about the increase in births nine months from now. Funny stuff.
I'm expecting a good day today. I hope everyone else has a good one as well.

My grandmother used to say that if Jan and Feb were really cold months then there were a lot of babies born in October and November grin

School is still cancelled, the kids stayed home more this month then they went. We got about 14 inches of snow and it is still flurrying. The winds were weaker than predicted so all is good.

I am glad it backed off for you, Sunny. I was wondering if it was aiming at you.
I got Teddy to school and stopped to shop. Put that away and remembered I was going to pick up eggs and cheese. sigh.

I wish....I was out all evening shoveling roofs. Preparing for the next big storm to hit us this weekend. I need to shovel out a few windows but that will have to wait until this evening.

My Humingbirds always show up on the first day of spring, but since we have had several 60° days so I decided that it might be a good idea to get a few feeders out today... just in case...
There are only 49 days, 9 hours, and 40 minutes until spring begins! party

I could use spring too, even with the nice weather we have had last few days I know the winter is still around... it is still January.......

We may have to put Nicoli in the hospital tomorrow.. Carrie called his doc this morning and she prescribed a new med to stop pain... he has had 2 doses so far and pain is still there... she told Carrie if it doesn't stop it with 3 doses he will be admitted to Childrens Hospital... we also went to school who is sending letters saying they will report them to truancy officer... told them he has been to ER twice in 3 days... in pain for a week... they proceeded to give us folder of his make up work... we may just have to go to a lawyer to get this school district to "get it" about his illness, not made up and not just cause he doesn't want to go to school... the good news is Carrie thinks she passed second stone and hopefully has... she went back to work but her boss is letting her work less hours - guess he has had a kidney stone a couple of times and knows just how much it hurts..

I think I got my rest in yesterday.. fell asleep in my chair in the afternoon- slept till after 7 , ate some dinner and then went back to bed about 10:30 and slept till almost 8 this morning... we did some running for Carrie after breakfast , got Nicoli's prescription... and some more groceries for her house and ours... easily and quick to fix stuff.. Joseph has really helped a lot too... watching his little brothers and making sure they get meals ... Jon't mom made them a couple homemade pizzas for dinner over the weekend too and a big pan of lasagna too.. his sis made them cake pops too, even remembered to make some non choc ones for Nicoli... my oldest DD went and stayed the day we took Carrie to the ER help Joseph with the boys... and keep him calmed down was very hard on him to see his Mom in pain too.

Well I have more laundry to do now... got to make sure I keep it up in case we have to stay busy for a few days again...

Have a good evening all.....

Nana

Morning ,

Thanks for prayers ... we still need them.. Carrie is still hurting .. stone didn't pass yet.... Nicoli is still hurting , she is waiting on doc to return her call ... meds didn't help his pain..... she is supposed to work tonit but have a feeling she isn't going in... we may just keep boys this weekend ... good thing we bought new airbeds last week ... Derek has his days and nights mixed up again... with all the stuff going on he didn't keep to his sleep schedule - hopefully today we can keep him awake today so he will get back to sleeping at night... Carrie has him doing school work right now to hopefully catch him up- that got delayed with docs and hospital time too... good thing he was ahead before all this hit...

Well I have to hit the shower and get what I can done- did finally get bills done last evening... and I love my crock pot lately... going to get it going in a few minutes too... roast a chicken in it... kids like that.... and so do we ... always something we can eat on for a day or so....

Have a good day all... we are to get snow again tonit too... I feel it already ... doesn't take much for my early warning bones to ache....

Nana

Prayers for everyone in your family, Nana. YOU as well...if you do not take care of you, you cannot take care of others.

No snow here, it is sunny & 41*F actually. But this weekend it is supposed to get nasty bad--ice & snow, or so they say. We shall see.

We are soon (I hope) on our way to pick up Luke for the night. We will take Beowulf back home & pick up Luke.
Poor Emily just called me to ask if we were going to feed Luke Supper....SMH at Rod----basically we are going to get Luke, let him sleep here & then after his nap tomorrow take him home. Picking him up on Saturday, or keeping him 2 nights
would be ever so much better in my mind...

yes I am. BUT his Daddy is going to Virginia Sunday morning on Business, so he wants Luke back tomorrow afternoon so he can spend some time with him before he leaves the next morning.

Luke said he was happy to be coming to "our house" (I had told him that he was going to "our house" my bad----his mom pointed out that he did not understand what I meant when I said our house.

I must straighten that out with him.

and I must go to bed soon, as he will likely get up at 6 am & so I should get some sleep.

Well gave boys dinner... got them ready to go to bed... gave Derek his melatonin - helps him sleep I hope... Joe cleaned up the kitchen, I am almost ready to go to bed too...

Carrie called they are keeping Nicoli, they gave him and emema... constipation goes with this and he was really blocked they said.. but even after he still hurt- they don't know why so they gave him morphine in his iv and let him sleep.. hopefully to wake with now pain... they think he is having an abdominal migraine now... which causes the constipation which causes the migraine... evil circle.... prayers are appreciated.... I have gone thru 4 candles for the two of them this last week....

Well I am heading to bed... boys want French toast for breakfast ... they are going to eat me out of house and home- they ate as much chicken for dinner as we eat in 3 meals...LOL!

Have a good night and sleep all... enjoy Luke time Carol..

Good morning.

Busy grandparents for sure...Tina, you need one to spoil as well shewinks

I took grandgirl sliding last night and this morning I woke up with more aches and pains than imaginable. Maybe I'm getting too old for playing like a child lol

It is still snowing but it is a long slow storm...it will take two days of snowing to give us a foot of the white stuff.

I am staying in today and eating all the junk food I can find, starting tomorrow I am starting a 'healthy eating diet and exercise regimen'...doctor's orders. cry

Good morning. I am not starting on a more nutritious dining experience on super bowl Sunday. Of course, I'm not really celebrating it much, anyway.
Today is my day to do laundry. And set up my monthly budget.

Well I do it this way..sometimes I eat a healthy diet, & sometimes I do not. I figure that is the best of both worlds that way.

Today for lunch I am having a mixture of 2% cottage cheese, avocado, cut up cherry tomatoes, & pepper. I love it, & it is good for me.

Grandson got up at 5 am, after going to bed at 9:30 pm egad But his mom warned me to feed him his lunch early as he would most likely be tired. He did last until noon. I finally put on the timer (it worked !!) and when it went off we read 2 books & he went to sleep w/o any problems. When I get all his clothes dried I am going to take a nap myself.

It's baked sweets that are my dilemma...I've just got to stick to the idea that it'll be worth it in the end.

Just pulled my bread from the oven and will start supper in a few. The storm is so bad at the moment that it is hard to even see outside.
