1.  Not going to work, or dressing for work, or doing my hair – it’s an up-do today!

2.  The ice outside and me inside

3.  Eating breakfast at home instead of at my desk

4.  Not hearing, “Mom, I need jeans!”

5.  And in lieu of that, getting caught up on laundry (a little more of a love/hate relationship)

6.  Finally having time to make homemade pizza!  See it here!  My kids are so excited!


7.  Having some reading time – it takes me months to get through a book

8.  Spending some time with my two babies that aren’t such babies anymore

9.  And doing a bunch of nothing in between


My Grandpa sent me this email and I cried!  Even in God’s beautiful creatures there is great love and friendship.  Pay attention … and learn … from a dog …

A dog’s seeing-eye dog….Wow! 

Lily is a Great Dane that has been blind since a bizarre medical condition required that she have 
Both eyes removed. For the last 5 years, Madison , another Great Dane, has been her sight. 
The two are, of course, inseparable.

But people will never forget how you made them feel.”
