Life: It Goes On - February 8

Last Sunday we had a blizzard. Tuesday we got several more inches of snow right at rush hour. Yesterday we had the back door standing open all afternoon. If you've gotta have winter, this is the way to do it!

This has kind of been Miss H week. I took Monday off to hang with her - we spent the day watching movies and enjoying some just-the-two-of-us time. Then I got lucky and she wanted to hang out again this weekend - we had her here for almost 24 hours! More movies, pizza, and a bowl of cookie dough. Health food! And four loads of her laundry. Somehow she just doesn't seem to find time to do laundry at her place!

This Week I'm:

Listening To: Still listening to Life After Life and still loving it. I'm half tempted to just drive around for a few hours to get in some more listening time!

Watching: "P. S. I Love You" (Miss H had never seen it), "Anastasia" (the animated movie - we can both sing along to the entire movie still), and "Frozen" (I had never seen it!) with Miss H and "Box Trolls" and "Infamous" with The Big Guy. It's winter - time to catch up on movies!

Reading: My Christmas present from Mini-him finally arrived - a new Nook charger! I can't tell you excited I was to see all of the books I have waiting for me on it. I have too many commitments just now to read any of them right now, though.

Have you read any books already this year that you think will still be on your "best of" list at the end of the year?

Making: Cookies, grilled cheese, tuna casserole and ham and beans. We went old school last week.

Planning: A night away from home. We've got a free hotel night that needs to be used soon so we're trying to decide if we should just do a stay-cation night in Omaha or head out of town. It's always nice to get out of town but as long as I'm out of the house I can relax.

Grateful for: Much as I disliked driving in it, I'm grateful for the snow. It's beautiful, we need the moisture, and it makes us appreciate days like today that much more.

Enjoying: Traveling to Boulder vicariously through Mini-me who headed there this weekend with his friend. First inkling I had that he was going was when he sent me this picture with the caption "Guess where I'm at" as they hit the foothills of the Rockies. Yesterday he went snowshoeing for the first time.

Feeling: Lazy. I swear I got almost nothing done around the house last week. After taking Monday off, I decided I didn't want to take vacation time if I didn't need to so I spent the rest of the week making up the time. Didn't leave much energy to do anything when I got home. Makes for a busy Sunday!

Looking forward to: Valentine's dinner with a group of friends we met when our kids were all swimming together in high school. It's gotten to be a tradition; we always meet at one of our houses so we don't have to fight the restaurant crowds and everyone pitches in. Always great food!

What are you looking forward to this week?
