Healthy body, healthy spirit, healthy mothering. This is the journey I have set out on with my two amazing children.

What a beautiful day! We got 10 inches of snow on Christmas Day and now, two days later we are getting slammed with some more snow. They are saying 8 more inches but I am thinking maybe more than that. Woooohooooo!

My brother-in-law got sent home from work (which almost never happens-apparently the snow is bad enough to shut down the rig today) so he drove to my house and picked up the kids and I. He was worried about us being snowed in and possibly running out of food. My sister married a good man. So, now we are at her house, the kids just shoveled the driveway and are now making peppermint hot cocoa. Grandma is visiting from Michigan (she canceled her flight for today and is heading home next week instead). Monk & her husband & Vader are at Vader's first physical therapy appointment since her ACL Reconstruction.

I brought a new book to read and if we are lucky Kelens Nintendo DS will arrive today. I saw the UPS truck roaming the streets and I hope he gets to us today. I think I shall make beef stroganoff for dinner, that is a nice comforting cold weather food.

Thats right! blurgh. Blurgh i the way I have been feeding my children lately. We have eaten wayyyy too many times at fast "food" burger places. When we have been home I have made eggs and bacon. Thats it. Eggs and bacon. We had bacon today for a snack and then Monkey & J took us to Bennigans where my chicken (which I was sure was supposed to be grilled) ended up being fried AND there was a freaking piece of shrimp in my rice. So basically i could not really eat my lunch. The server was awesome and brought me a piece of grilled chicken but by then we were ready to leave. Now my awesome son and I are on our way to the movie, we are gonna see fred claus.
