I have been cooped up in the house this whole time, starting to get a little stir crazy. LOL. I’m just grateful that our power did not go out during this ice storm. MY backyard is pretty much melted away but my front yard is still a snow covered BIG block of Ice. If I don’t get some sun by my door way, my garage will be new entry way. LOL.
Being from Florida the whole Ice Storm was a new thing for me. When I went outside to check the mail I was expecting to step in the fluffy snow … Then realized holy crap this is a block of ice. So I ice skated to the mail box (okay walked very slowly).
The last time my son was in snow he just turned 3 and I don’t think he quite remembers what it was. The whole day he looked out the window saying “Mama, milk”. I was like “No honey that’s Snow”. He was determind to tell me otherwise and was positive it was milk. Finally when the sleet stopped I took him out there … we walked VERY SLOWELY … lol … he goes to touch it and then he looks at me and says “Mama, what is that?. I then WON the conversation and said it is snow. We were out there a total of 3 minutes because it was just way too cold.
I did get a couple things done this weekend … I managed to go through one more cleaning threw my office got a bunch of kits together to sell in ETSY shop. I figured its better I sell them and get them out of my closet. Hopefully someone else will use them. You can check them out HERE. I also made a big life decision this weekend. It’s taken me a long while to figure out a right career path for myself … with being an army wife and a mom that’s been my full time job for a couple years and getting a career for myself just didn’t seem in reach. Really it was I just had to realize that if I want something I have to work for it. It won’t just come to me in a box LOL. So I decided to go to college for graphic design. From talking to the school I plan applying for, talking to a couple of my favorite bloggers with a similar career, and doing some homework … I discovered that art is my passion and it has been since I was little. I always said I would go to art school, better late than never. I now plan to GO FOR IT. I’m very excited. I know it is going to be a long road and it won’t be easy but I want this and with that said I know I can do it. Patty will be college bound by the fall!!!!
