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!

I hope Mandys legs will get stronger.
I hate the high deductibles on insurance. People pay enough for it let alone have to pay even more.
Congrats to Karl! That's great.

Hi Lori! I'm so sorry to hear about your electronics. I guess homeowners insurance is for catastrophic events. We got rid of cable years ago and I do not miss it at all. I watch Netflix and the Directv Now app on my iPad, but I don't even do that very often. I'm glad spring is arriving for you. It's still very winter-like in Nebraska, but I am in Orange Beach, AL visiting my daughter this week and it has been beautiful. I came down to buy a house and I found one on Wednesday. We will be moving down here in a month. I shouldn't have to deal with much winter from here on out. I hope you enjoyed your spring break.
