Time Flies

I can't believe it's the last week of February already. Where has this year gone so quickly? We haven't had much excitement this year, I guess we've all been taking turns being sick so that zaps all the fun out of everything. We got our taxes back last week!! Too bad they've been spent on bills as quickly as the money was deposited. We're hoping to be able to take a small vacation this summer with the girls. That should be interesting.

Tried a new drink this weekend. I got some B1G1 coupons from Vocalpoint for Fuze and bought some. The Peach Mango and Banana Colada are super yummy. The tropical punch is not so good, really doesn't have much flavor to it making it kinda bland and yucky. They are probably not something I would buy if I didn't have those coupons though, but that's just because I'm frugal :)

More Snow, More Ice

Natalie had her 5th birthday on Saturday. I can't believe my baby is already 5. As much as I want her to stay little, I know I need to let her start spreading her wings and encourage her to be a bit more independent.

Sunday was an adventure in ice-capades. I took Gabby to a friends house to play and got stuck on their ice rink of a driveway. Their house sits back off a main road about 1/4 mile. Partway down the driveway I realized it was a big mistake, but it was too late by then. It took half an hour to get back out the driveway to the road. It was pure ice due to the crazy nasty weather we have here. They were putting newspapers, pizza boxes, and rugs under my van to try to get me a little traction to get out. FINALLY, as Jeff was on his way up to try to rescue me, I was able to get out. I definitely did not make that same mistake twice. When I went to pick her up later, I left my car parked on the side of the road at the end of their driveway with my flashers on. I pulled on my snow boots and hoofed it through the snowy yard to the house. I couldn't even walk on the drive it was so icy.

Cough, cough, go away!

I am now entering week 2 of the coughing game. Natalie is in week 3. Will it ever end? Everything is loosening up now which is both good and bad. I've coughed so much I sound like a pre-pubescent boy with my voice cracking, when I have a voice that is. I cannot wait until the weather breaks and warms up to, oh say 50 so I can crack some windows and air out the germs. I'm tired of living in the house of sickies. I can only clean so much before it all starts all over again with someone else here.
