Ok, my picture proof has come back to bite me. This week has been crazy as all have seemed lately. L was mo' sick with a sinus infection and an ear infection and WHINY, let me tell you WHINY! Then Granpa fell and broke his pelvis and hip. They took him to Texarkana because ALL of the hospitals in Shreveport were full. He was finally cleared for surgery last night. So anyway, with a crazy week I was exhausted today and decided to lay down for a while and read this cloudy afternoon away, all the while praising God for the peace for a minute to read! Well, I hadn't been in my bed for about 15 mins when Maggie came around the corner and took a picture of me. I asked her what she was doing playing with my camera, to her reply,"I needed to be able to prove to my daddy that you laid around her reading a book in your bed all day and won't play with me." Seriously. She's five. Geez. My little rugrat. (And Melody, that is not funny!)

It is snowing like crazy over here! Which, of course, is an exceptionality in rural Northern Louisiana. I really loved seeing my students go crazy in the snow! We worked hard today as we listened to Melody's sultry voice singing, "Oh, the weather outside is frightful..." while we did our snow dance this morning at school! My own kids are so crazy happy that there is no school tomorrow! They made me go look out the window to see 100 things when we got home tonight. "Mom, there is SNOW on the trampoline...swing...dog...etc." as if the snow was going to just pass over those things and land only on the ground. Maggie even asked me where the grass went when the snow was on it. So funny! So anyway, all that said to say, DO NOT CALL ME IN THE MORNING. I am sleeping in!! We are out for SNOW DAY or is it Valentines, or Chinese New Year, or Mardi Gras, or President's Day...Who cares!!! YEa!!! lol Here are some pics from our "Snow Day" holiday! Funny little rugrats...

My kids have been so sick. We finally got AC over mono like two weeks ago just to have Mags and L come down with it this week. They are so whiny, and I had to take off three days to keep them. It was Frankie's week to go to Baton Rouge so he couldn't adjust his schedule (and didn't need to considering he had just rearranged his two weeks ago for AC). Anyway, then I got in trouble at school over a miscommunication. Totally terrible. I always work so hard to be my very best (ya'll know how I am) just to have it all crash in this week. Well, to top it all off, Frankie is at the emergency room with Mags hoping she didn't break two of her fingers when she and her big sister were fighting and slamming the door in each other's faces- hence slamming fingers in the process. FUN! FUN!! Where are my nerve pills again? Good news is that we finished AC's room. That was a huge undertaking that I am glad is over. In the pics we had not finished her closet doors, but they are done now. I will have to post a done pic soon. She is really loving having her own place that is clutter free and quiet so she can read and do homework. Now, if the middle rugrat wouldn't go in there to drive her crazy we wouldn't have broken fingers. Now it just wouldn't be right not to mention the pasta and spilt kool-aid supper, would it! Pic is attached- don't worry, all disasters are being documented, remember?!! At least we are clothed! These rugrats are wearing me down.
