Oh COLD. . .

Well I guess the blizzard wasn't as bad as predicted, but it has been aweful cold here. We didn't end up staying at the outlaws and came home. Love sleeping in my own bed. The only thing I got done crafty this week was coloring some images and looking through the TAC catologe Bridgett sent me. Thanks Bridget! The boys are about driven me totally crazy!!! Jason didn't have school tuesday cause of the snow, or yesterday because of the cold. And doesn't go back till Tuesday because of quarterbreak oh it is going to be a looooooonnnnnnnggggggg weekend. I can't say that I can remember the last time it has been -30* without the windchill. High in the 20's but never actually -30*. Yesterday ended up being -49* with windchill and this morning wasn't much better. Lets say feeding calves outside for 25 minutes wasn't the greatest. Even Beer wasn't safe from the cold as the local radio station exploded a can in 1 1/2 hours yesterday morning. Beer slushy anyone?? So for the most part we have been locked in the house or barn and the boys are starting to climb the walls. Julie and Hailey were over yesterday so that helped to break it up a bit. And we went and got adjusted at Dr.Chuck's yesterday morning cause I threw my back out Tuesday and it just kept getting worse. Well hope you all had a wonderful week and maybe I will be sneeking in some me time Sunday as the boys new 4-wheeler is together and just needs oil and gas and i am sure daddy will be testing it out. It is to be in the 20's by Sunday talk about a temp. swing. I'll have to break out the shorts and t-shirts. Hehehe.

Oh no Jaime, poor you and kids really don't like being kept in, do they? I really hope it warms up a bit for you and they boys get out to play and you can get some crafting done. x

I guess I shouldn't complain about our weather here in Southern Nevada.
