Update During a Blah Day

Just a short follow-on to yesterday's post. The 14 year old who was shot in the back of the head by another 9th grade student did not survive. I also said that Discovery Middle School is in Huntsville - correction it is actually in Madison. The two towns are joining and I never remember where the names change.

We have had gray, rainy, windy, cold weather for days and DAYS!! If I don't see some sunshine soon I just may scream. We haven't been crippled by ice and snow - I am thankful for that. I really feel for those who have been through blizzards and ice storms this winter.

NASCAR begins this weekend. Harry is actually watching an ARCA race at Daytona right now. Bud Shot Out begins around 7 CST. This Sunday is the Super Bowl and next Sunday is the Daytona 500. The kids and Harry are all excited. I guess I am too - just a bit less than they are. Both Sundays will be eat finger food in front of the television days.

As you can tell by reading the above there's not much happening here. I gotta start prep of dinner. After dinner is over I plan to go to bed early. I just want to hide under the covers with my pillow - sorta like Lucy in her beanbag. Only thing is that I'm not pouting; I'm just bummed by the weather.

Here's to better days ahead. Hope all is well with all my blog friends.

Oh Mary, I am so with you on the winter thing. It's really getting me down, too. Usually, this does not happen to me, but this damned winter has just been so hard.

Let's just take off to somewhere warm and sunny. You ready?

Loved the race last night, other than Harvick winning...LOL

Happy Super Bowl today. Hugs. :)

tragic about the boy. it's crazy that we can't send our kids to school anymore without worrying they will be shot.
back in the day-- me and my sibs-- me the youngest-- at 5 and 6 years old would walk a mile to the creek to swim and play-- alone.
now a kid that age can't safely play in their own front yard-- or go to school.
it breaks my heart.

i hope you feel better today-- maybe the sun will peek out and wave at you?

big hugs LBF

Sorry for the blah day. Spring will come, and summer and lots of sunshine. We had all the snow, but it was pretty and I loved being out with all the neighbors.

Thanks for your visit and your very imformative words from your hubby about that Orchid....I know it is not anything I've seen before, nor had my florist...So it was great to read where it may actually come from.
Hope you are having a GOOD Super Bowl Sunday!
