Good News/Bad News

The weather guys/gals had been predicting some cold, wet, wintry mix for the last few days.  Ever the skeptic, I was glad to the some icy stuff on the windshield when I walked out of church at noon.  It's now a little before 3:00 in the afternoon, it's snowing big time. 

Snow + ice on road = a strong possibility of no work tomorrow!  Woo hoo!! 
Snow + ice on road + no work tomorrow = an extra day of work in June.  Boo hoo.


Husband + him leaving at 5:00 a.m. to visit nether reaches of stake = Husband will be home early.  Woo hoo! 
Husband + him visiting the nether reaches of stake + ice on roads + snowing like Utah in Texas = a very worried wife.  



Did you know it snows in Texas?  Most people don't realize this.  Sure we don't experience snowmageddon like much of the U.S. but three inches might as well be thirty when you're not used to it.  It's been awhile since I've lived in snow country, although, after last year's snow fall and then again this year's, I may have to once again say I live in snow country...nah, that'd be stretching things a might.

Killer's goal writing incident + Husband's advice on how to run without stopping = 1.8 miles of more running than walking WOO HOO!!!
1.8 miles of more running than walking + organizing office area = finding a $40.00 Crate and Barrel gift card =  a GIVEAWAY to celebrate an accomplishment!!!

Here's to a day off tomorrow, possibly, Husband and his travel buddies making it home safely, and hoping you have more good news than bad this coming week.

  1. I know it's a pain in the keester, but snow sure is pretty stuff. And, it means I don't have to wipe Oscar's paws off when he comes in (unlike w/he rain, which = muddy paws). Keepin' my fingers crossed for you and BIL.

  6. The best piece of news I've heard this year... is hopefully in the morning when they announce school closings and I just might get the day off work. I found out in December that I'm gonna be an aunt...and I'm so excited I'm carrying that into my new year as the best news I've heard. :-)

  7. "I found it." Son lost his tooth on New Year's Eve and then lost the tooth (as in couldn't find it anymore), so no visit from the tooth fairy until we heard him yell those words the other night. It was great news.

  15. So far, this year hasn't been full of news... good or bad. But, last night my mom called and told me that my dad was called to be the High Priest Group Leader in their ward. That's pretty good news (probably not to him, though)considering just 4 years ago they had been completely inactive from the church for more than 18 years.
