Snow Melting, Robbery, Sickness, and a super bad most horrible week...

I hope this is my one bad week and the rest of this year will shape up much better!!

First all the snow melted and the ice is no longer thick enough to ice-fish / skate. BLECH! With the ammount I enjoy doing pretty much every winter activity under the sun, that put a major damper on my spirits.

Secondly, I had conferences this week (which means a late, very tiring night) and that day I came down with a horrible cold and a 100 degree fever. That was a VERY LONG DAY! Being sick when you have a job is bad enough, being sick when you are a teacher is the most horrible thing imaginable because you are standing up all day and talking.

THEN, yesterday my family got robbed for the 2nd time in the past 3 monthes. This time it was my mom's house and the people broke in during the middle of the day. All in all everything turned out well because not much was taken of any value, in comparison to November when 2 brand new motorcycles and 2 four-wheelers were wheeled away in the middle of the night from the garage at the barn. This marks at least the 4th robbery on my street that I'm aware of since November. You'd think we live in a "bad part of town" but we live in a great community that I feel just attracts the riff-raff from out-of-town. And I guess crime increases during a recession.

So let's round out the blog posting with some positive news: Our new windows got installed this week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That same night we had 50 mph winds and we did the "candle test" and didn't even have a flicker!!! (as of last week, the curtains wouldv'e been moving and the candle would've blown out). YIPEE!!!!!!!

Gee, I hope your weekend is BETTER! That's a lot of dismal stuff all at once.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I am enjoying yours and that pumpkin in your profile pic is fantastic! (Here I thought I was doing well with a pumpkin that maybe weighed ten pounds.) :)
