Crazy Tuesday!

It was a crazy Tuesday!  It started snowing halfway to school and snowed all morning. It finally started sticking to the trees and grass...beautiful!  Our very wise superintendent got the county to salt the hill to the school first thing this morning so we wouldn't have a repeat of last Thursday.  No coffee party at the bottom of the hill this week!  Schools closed at 12:00, but the roads were just wet.  By 2:00 everything had melted.  But, I'd rather he err on the side of safety and get us home.  I definitely don't want to be stuck at school all night!  I only saw 1 student this morning...the others were absent.  I got some paperwork done, and spent some time watching the snowflakes.  Middle son's soccer scrimmage along with a parent meeting was postponed, so we had nowhere to go.  Watched "Four Christmases" after the boys got home from school.    Nice,calm day!  And, there was a brand new NCIS to top it off!  I just love Jethro!  Mark Harmon just gets better with age!

I'm starting off Wednesday with a 1-hour delay.  Guess the superintendent is taking the new policy for a spin to see how it's going to work.  I'm up at the usual time, though. The girls don't understand a 1 hour delay.  

And now, it's time for... (drum roll...)

1. Do you prefer even or odd numbers? Any particular reason?  Even.  Odd numbers are just...well...odd.
2. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being "not at all" and 10 being Carly Simon-worthy, how vain are you?  I'd say about a 5.  I have short hair, have never had a mani or pedi, but I do put on makeup if I'm  going out somewhere. I have days when I look in the mirror and think, "Dang, I should take a picture!"  I don't have those days very often, so I think  I should save it for posterity!
3. Among these Irish stereotypes, with which do you identify most closely? Talkative, Proud, Inquisitive, Love to party, Hot-tempered.  I'm pretty hot-tempered, but don't like confrontations.  I loved a good party, back in the day.
4. How lucky do you consider yourself?  Very.  I have a great life:  wonderful husband, great kids, good dogs, and I absolutely love my job.
5. What is the subject of your favorite post that you've written?  You mean out of the 10 I've written?  :D The "EHS 8 Memorial".  Not a happy one, but one to remember.
6. Describe March weather where you live in three words.  Blustery, cold, warm
7. How apt are you at detecting blarney when you hear it? (Smooth talk, flattery)  Not at all.  I'm the most gullible person in the world.  I believe everything I hear until I have reason to doubt what's being said.
8. How "green" are you, environmentally speaking?  I'm trying...I use reusable bags when shopping, and recycle.
9. What is your favorite song this week?  I don't know that I have one this week.  For some reason, "You're So Vain" keeps running through my head!
10. You are walking along and see a coin on the ground. What denomination does it have to be before you will stop to pick it up?  Anything but a penny.  The last time I picked up a penny (about 23 years  ago) I got a speeding ticket.  I don't pick them up anymore!
11. Complete the sentence: "Every time I look outside my window ...." I'm happy I moved home.
12. What was the #1 song on the day you were born? "Don't Break the Heart that Loves You" by Connie Francis.  (Never heard of it)  I like my husband's a lot better:  "Where Did Our Love Go" by the Supremes.  Brings back a memory of a 4 or 5 year old me, siblings in school, and I'm playing with my dolls in the living room.  Mom put a Supremes' album on the record player, and let me eat a Caravel candy bar in the living room (which was a gigantic no-no in our house).  Wonder if my brother (who is 4 years younger than I) had been born and she was just trying to keep me out of trouble?


  1. Your memorial post is beautiful. Well done.

    I love that you're content where you are. That is such a blessing!

  2. I love the memory in's funny the things we remember from our childhood.

    It's kinda snowing here today. I'm afraid it's more of an icy snow though. ugh. T went to Taiwan on Tuesday-he showed me how to use the snow blower before he left but I am so hoping it doesn't come to that. : )

  3. Enjoyed your answers. Isn't it funny what we remember from our childhood. I have thought about writing the memories in a journal, so my grandbabies and their kids will have them. I wish my grandparents would of done that for me.
    Your memorial post brought tears to my eyes. I remember reading about that, and praying for them. Thanks so much for sharing!

    until next time... nel

  4. #9 made me laugh!

    Enjoyed your answers!

  5. Ooh, those were GOOD answers! I'm with you, I'm the most GULLIBLE person on the planet! My coworkers at one of my jobs had a BALL calling my desk phone and pretending to be other people. I fell for it EVERY time! On the positive side, I am a very trusting individual!!

    Glad the snow was able to allow you some free time !

  6. You got a ticket after picking up a penny? Think I'd like to hear that story.

  7. It's great to hear about someone who is totally happy with the town they live in.

    Your memorial was very touching. I agree that it was God's providence that you didn't pick that town to live!

  8. That was a lovely memorial post you wrote.
