Snow!

It snowed today. A lot. It started (I think) right around lunch time. We were at church, so I don't know what time it started here, but it snowed (hard) for about 5-6 hours. It is just sitting in the grass, on the sidewalk, and the streets. The streets look kind of slushy. It has stopped now. It is supposed to be freezing temperatures tonight, so hopefully it will dry up fast. It was a lot of fun to be at church while it was snowing. We were all out in it, watching the kids throw snowballs at each other (and sometimes at us). It was really beautiful. When we got home, we had lots of birds all day. It was interesting to watch them. We have a bird that is not in our bird book called Common Birds of Atlanta. It is solid black and has a small red stripe just above a small gold stripe on each wing. I'll get a picture of it next time and upload it to see if anyone knows what it is.

Not this past Thursday, but the Thursday before that, I got a hair cut. I will post a picture so you can see it. I had about 6 inches cut off, layers cut, and some long bangs. I like it.


We took a bunch of pictures today at the house, but we have not downloaded them yet. Such is life lately.


I am still working 10-12 hours a day. We should file our 10-K this Friday, so hopefully it will ease up some. I know I will still have a good bit of overtime, because we still have our proxy to file and then it will be time to do our 10-Q (for quarter end), but I really don't intend to work this much for that much longer. It's kind of crazy. I am glad to have a job and I do like my job. But, enough is enough. My understanding is that it is much better this year for our department than it was for them in previous years. So, for that I am thankful.


Scott is still working away at his same job. They keep having layoffs, so we are trying not to be nervous about that. The good thing is that with the two companies they have, they really do need to keep 2 IT people. So, that is sort of a little bit of piece of mind.


Anyway, that is a brief synopsis of our status. I know I have not been good about writing. Hopefully I'll be better about it soon.

We had about 4 inches of snow here during the night. I woke up at 4:30 and went downstairs for more medicine to notice everything outside was white...very pretty. Unfortunately, I did not feel like getting out in it, so I just admired from inside.

I love the hair cut! We had about 2 inches. The kids and I went out for about 30 minutes to play in it. It was very wet and slushy. We were able to make a snowman though. Sam enjoyed throwing snowballs. Couldn't get a day off from school though. Oh well, maybe next year.
Snow in March..........crazy!
