What is up with the weather?

This is what we woke up to this morning. Saturday and Sunday were sunny and 70 degrees and now we have snow. This doesn't help when we're trying to explain the seasons to Maria! The powers that be didn't delay school so Zack headed of with a little peephole for a windshield and called a few minutes later to say the roads were a mess. He was stopping for gas so he could put the car in 4-wheel drive (nothing will put Zack in a bad mood faster than having to pay $3.19 for gas). He called Don a few minutes later to give Don a play-by-play description of the cars taking turns going down Chenal Hill so they didn't slide into each other. Zack went down in the grass on the shoulder. Needless to say the girls and I are staying in this morning. It should be fine in a couple of hours for our afternoon activities. If I don't get out to get my haircut I might just lose my mind! Maria is supposed to have her first soccer practice at 6:00. We'll see how that goes.

Arkansas weather is kind of like my moods these days. Sunny one minute...stormy the next. I don't know what's going on with my hormones but I think they are all over the place. At least the rest of the family has grown up with "mommy dearest". Poor Maria probably thinks..."This is NOT what I signed up for! I want the nice lady back." This too shall pass.

Simply stated: It's a good it's a bad it's a good it's a bad day. You get the picture! :)

It's good to have the "old" Stacie back. Emotions are meant to be expressed (delicately of course). Without them, we are not true to ourselves or others and knowing you as only a mother can. your emotions are what make you a special mother, daughter, wife, friend (you get the message.) Love you
