Good morning ladies!  Boy its been a long week!  I am so hoping next week is a quiet, smooth week that the family can all relax and regroup some.  But, standing in between that is the weekend! Sealed  Today, projects at work, errands at lunch, and then all out preparations for Emma's birthday party tomorrow.  I got some cake pops done last night, I think out of the 12 I did, 5 were acceptable by my standards, so tonight, more and more to come.  I think I have the hang of it now though so tonight should go more smoothly!  I also need to do cupcakes and I told Emma I would take her out to get paperware for the party.  Hoping DH Is home early tonight to watch Madison.  If not, the girls are both going with me.  I have a feeling it'll be a late night.

Tomorrow, up early to the chiropractor's office, then decorating for the party, including grocery shopping, unless I can fit that in at lunch or tonight, which is doubtful.  Party is from 1:30-3:30, then afterwards, clean up and crashing! LOL!  Probably pizza and a movie night for us to relax and unwind from the party.

Sunday, relaxing, cleaning, laundry.

Have a great weekend!!

Zeph has a doctor appointment at noon. What the doctor says will determine the rest of our weekend.  Right now the plan is light school today.  I'd like to go grocery shopping and to the post office and make some chicken noodle soup for tomorrow.  Zeph and a friend have break- dance class tonight. Welcome back 80s!

Tomorrow is his league bowling party.  It's a mix of pizza, awards, and a team tournament.  No plans on Sunday-probably catching up with school, housework, and an episode or two of Warehouse 13.

Morning. I am off today. our power went out during the night, woke me cause I think it blinked a few times and cause some thing to make noise going off and on.  I woke right when it went out for a while.  It was out for about 30 minutes.  When it came back on I saw what was happening overnight in Massachusetts. So I was up for a while watching that and finally went to bed.  Got up on time and the kids also.  They have a half day of school today.  They get out round lunch time so I am taking them to lunch and then Natalie,wants to hit the store for a Justin Bieber shirt.  Today is going on a weekend trip with friends from work, fishing and all the stupid stuff men do when they aren't with their wives. LOL  He gets back late Sunday evening.   I need to figure out dinner.  Maybe frozen pizza. 

Tomorrow, we are going to be lazy. Tim keeps everyone so on edge on weekend that we are doing nothing.  Not even cleaning.  He really pushes constant chore all weekend and hence kids are snappy and on edge as am I since they come to me complaining.  So it will be nice to have relaxing weekend, truly relaxing. 

Sunday, I guess will be our cleaning day.  Do some straightening, dishes, laundry.  All that good stuff.

Warehouse 13 is kind of like a X Files reboot.  It's more campy and light hearted.  it was originally a Sci Fy channel show. but we're watchign it on Netflix.  We finished Merlin season 4 and are eagerly awaiting season 5 to be available.  In the meantime, this is a family show that appeals to us all.

TGIF indeed!  It has been a rough week this week.  It has snowed pretty much all week.   We got about 5 inches  Sunday night into Monday, snow showers on Tuesday, Snow and sleet on Wednesday, and things have deteriorated from there.  On Wednesday, despite the snowpack still on the ground, the new stuff wasn't sticking to cleared surfaces because the ground was too warm.  Yesterday morning it was rough going getting to school for me (I drive about 40 miles to the CC in the nearest large town), but getting home was fine, even though it was beginning to snow fairly heavily.  The kids' school cancelled all afternoon and  evening activities at 2:45 yesterday afternoon, and by 6:00 when DD got home from her hair appointment, the snow was coming up to the floorboards of the Mini.  The wind picked up markedly about 7:30-8:00, and it howled all night.  It actually woke up all three of the dogs and I had to let them out at MIDNIGHT last night to see what the commotion was, LOL.  They woke me again at 5:00 A.M. to be fed, and there had to have been at least a foot of new snow on the sidewalk.  School is cancelled for DD and DS, the CC campus I attend is closed, and the entire town is shut down today.  DH and DS are out plowing, Crazydog and the puppy are out playing in the snowdrifts, The Beagle is hiding under our bed, DD and a friend are out sledding (not my idea of a good time in this wind, but whatever.), I took a sociology test, an astronomy exam, participated in online discussion in photography, and posted my photo for the student art exhibit in the dropbox.  I am trying to get up enough gumption to clean, because the house desperately needs it, but all I really want to do is hibernate!

Tomorrow is a big community festival to raise money for the park/sports complex.  DH is cooking, DD is waiting tables.  I don't know if I want to attend or not.  When she is done with her shift, DD is taking her prom dress to be altered and going shopping in Duluth with a friend.  I have to take a landscape or architecture photo.  I also have to go to the camera shop and get my exhibit photo printed.  Hopefully the roads and the weather will be better.  No plans for Sunday except for church and brunch with DH after.

I'm glad we went to the doctor.  Poor kid has bronchitis.  She said his lungs were border line sounding to warrant an xray to confirm/deny pneumonia, but since she would treat it with the same antibiotics, we declined the xray. He's taking a steamy shower and going to do some more school work and then veg to a WWII documentary.  I still plan on his attending dance class tonight unless he doesn't feel up to it.
