Spring Break and Happy Easter!

I totally forgot to come in here and blog this week.  I am going to try and do it tonight. 
I have been on Spring Break this week,  but it has been busy.  It began last Friday and I worked a half day and then my mom, Josh and I went shopping and out to eat.  We had fun.  Monday I went to the dentist and had a filling and a crown.  Tuesday I was home...that would have been a great day to blog!  Wednesday I had my hair cut and highlighted...it has blonde highlights for Spring/Summer and also went to walmart and did some laundry.  Thursday Josh and I went back to the dentist for more fillings.  Friday I did laundry and cleaned house.  I also have a pen pal from my stay at home mom days that I have started writing and so I wrote to my friend Candi.  Today we had night church (Easter services) and I will watch my Hallmark movie in a little while.  It has been busy, but it has been good and a lot has been accomplished.
Tomorrow for Easter we are planning to go to my mom's house for Easter dinner.  I think I will just stop for now so I have time to visit blogs!  I hope you all have a very Blessed Easter!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I have enjoyed this winter so far.  We had some snow and some ice.  We missed a few days of school and I was able to relax some, but now we seem to be turning a corner and trying to head into Spring.  My flowers (crocus) have bloomed as of about a week ago.  We are getting some spring storms.  In fact, our house got hit by lightning...as in our internet and it ruined our DSL box, 2 tvs and 2 DVD players.  Our deductible was too high, so we did not make a claim.  We just replaced our tvs.  We also started using Sling tv this year and got rid of satellite tv.  I did not like it at first, but now I do not miss it at all.  We are saving a lot of money each month...however, we did sign up for You Tube tv last weekend and I actually like it better,but here is the catch...You tube tv does not have the Hallmark channel, and I watch Hallmark all of the time.
Since I last posted, Mandy is still walking, but her back legs are much weaker.  I wish our animals could live forever.
Work is going great!  I just love it, however, we are getting close to the end of the year and we will be graduating some really wonderful kids to Kindergarten.  I am going to be a mess.  It has been a really great year.
Karl has been hard at work.  He got a promotion a few months ago, so he is a foreman now and he got a raise.  He deserves it, he works hard.
There is not a lot going on.  It is almost Spring Break, so I am hoping to be able to blog and visit blogs that week.  I hope you are all doing well.  Happy St. Patrick's Day!

In the new year...

We had really nice holidays except my mom got sick at Thanksgiving and that seemed to hang on.  I had to take her to the doctor and then after she should have been better, she got really sick again and had to come stay with us for a few weeks.  The good news is she is better now.  We had Thanksgiving at my house and my mom was able to do Christmas at her house.  We got Josh a smart tv and it is pretty neat.  We got rid of our dish satellite tv and we are trying Sling.  We are really hoping it works out, because it is about half the price.  Anyway, Josh's tv does really well with the Sling and the apps that go with it.
It has been two months since I last posted and Mandy continues to be able to walk, but her right back leg is getting really weak.  It is just sad.  You will have to read my last post to know what is going on.  We had a really good Christmas for the dogs though, so if it was her last, it was nice.  This sounds so depressing, but it is very upsetting for me.
My job is still going just great!  I absolutely love the people I work with and the kids are amazing!  We started back to work on January 2nd and the kids came back on the 3rd.  We finally were able to take them out to play on Friday because the weather has been so cold.  They do really good having to stay in.  There are a lot of sick kids too.  I hope they can come back next week.
The pictures above are of the dogs getting their presents from Santa Paws and a picture of Mandy by herself.  Then a picture of Josh with his new gloves.  You can click on the images to make them bigger so you can see them better.  I am kind of glad Josh asked for boots, hat, scarf and gloves for Christmas.  It has been so cold.  Well, I will get off of here for now.  Hopefully something awesome happens I can come post about.  Maybe I will win the lottery?  Hahahahaha.  Happy New Year 2018!  I hope it is a good year.
