It's Possible

What an eventful week!  Snow and more snow and more snow and more snow. It is just crazy.  They never have this much snow.  Outside of a seafood restaurant they built a big snow lobster and spray painted it red.  It's just like building a sand castle...NOT!
Wednesday the roads were really nasty.  We decided to stay at a friend's house in Somers after I picked the kids up from school.  We know them through Dave's job.  The wife so graciously took us in and fed us.  We are so blessed to have them.  I was scared to death to ride on these slushy, icy roads. Not to mention these hotel walls were getting to me, so I was happy to have a change of scenery. This is where we got our first lesson in snow shoveling.  I will post a picture of my car buried.  Luckily, the driveway was plowed for us. The snow is so thick, when Maggie walked in it yesterday she lost both of her shoes. They had a 2 hour delay at school that morning.  Maggie caught the bus with her children. The bus driver was so cool. Maggie said she loved it because they listened to Rhianna on their way to school.
Dave is in Atlanta and has been for 2 weeks now. He is there with the movers still.  They were supposed to leave last night but my source says the truck is still in front of my house.  Would someone please go hi-jack it and drive it up here?  I want to move in SUNDAY!!!  Not a day later!!!
Maggie had a performance this morning at school. It was a Seussical Musical!  All songs about Dr. Seuss, whom by the way I love.  She did fabulous!  I cried for "It's Possible, Anything is Possible". That child on the stage is proof of that. I was sitting in the audience listening and I had to cry   Look at her, singing. She knows the words, knows the hand motions. She is smiling.  She has only been to school a handful of days.  I'm sure the other parents think I'm a little nuts but that's ok. They'd figure it out eventually! LOL
